Ten Reasons Why the Southern Costa Blanca Is One of Europe’s Most Sought After Locations – 


If you’re thinking about purchasing a property in Spain, whether a re-sale or new build property, for investment, a holiday home or for full time living, then there are so many reasons why the Southern Costa Blanca should be top of the list.

This is a sought after location, offering blue flag beautiful beaches, golf courses, & Alicante’s largest shopping centre, but the list of reasons to purchase here is set to grow as developers are returning & building some of the most luxurious properties and innovative opportunities in Spain.


Learn a little more about this fantastic location with our top ten reasons that make this location just too good to miss –


1.Property Prices – Now Is The Time To Buy:


As a preferred location in Spain, the property prices in the Southern Costa Blanca are on their way up. Don’t let that put you off though, with the exchange rate as it is right now (keep a close eye on this here) you can still grab a great property at a great price.


It is important to understand that the entry level for a good quality property in this desirable location is slightly higher now.  So rather than the €40-50,000 price levels of a few years ago, figures of around €85-105,000 (£62 – 77,000) are opening buyers up to a much larger number of really fantastic properties, perfect for a holiday home or full time living.

2. New Build Opportunities:


The new-build opportunities in the Southern Costa Blanca really are endless right now.  With reasonable prices, and beautiful locations, property developers are very much ‘in tune’ with what their customers are looking for and are using new technology and materials.


If an investment property is what you’re after, then new build could certainly be the option for you. With fantastic locations, close to beaches, amenities and golf, new build properties offer great investment potential via rental income & capital growth.


A number of these new build developments also offer buyers the option of managing the renting of the property when they are not using it. Contact us to find out more about this option.


3. Beaches:

A large section of the Southern Costa Blanca is also known as the ‘Orihuela Costa.’  The Orihuela Costa is a coastal region situated on the Costa Blanca, which covers several coastal resorts including Punta Prima, Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cabo Roig, Villamartin, Campoamor and Mil Palmeras.


This is an ideal destination for those looking for property close to the beach, as many of the major beaches along this stretch of the Costa Blanca are Blue Flag, but there are also plenty of smaller, quieter beaches to be discovered and enjoyed too.


Perfect for taking the family to the beach for a day by the sea, or maybe a traditional Spanish lunch at one of the many chirringuitos.

4. Golf Courses:


For a long time Villamartin was known as the home of golf in the Southern Costa Blanca, but in recent years many more golf courses can be found in this fantastic location.


There are some stunning, high quality golf courses all within a short drive of one another. A true golfers paradise, and with all courses providing stunning views and scenery, this is a great place to soak up some sunshine and pass the time with your favourite hobby (if you’re a golfer that is!).


The courses include Las Ramblas, Campomoar La Finca, La Marquesa, Las Colinas, Lo Romero & the courses at Villamartin too. 


Golf property is also excellent for rental potential too; if you’re planning on renting out your property then these golf courses bring visitors to the area all year round.

5. Shopping:


If the golf courses make the Southern Costa Blanca a ‘golfer’s paradise’ then La Zenia Boulevard means it is a ‘shopaholic’s heaven’ too!


The largest shopping centre in the province of Alicante is located in La Zenia, and if you love shopping then you’ll absolutely love La Zenia Boulevard. 


There are over 100 fashion shops, restaurants & bars, a food market, a children’s play area, a casino, and a bowling alley. There are also activities that take place every weekend, drawing in the crowds from all over the Southern Costa Blanca.


There really is something for everyone, and it is open late in to the night too meaning you can quite literally shop until you drop!



6. Re-Sale Property:


There is some beautiful re-sale property on offer in this great location with everything from apartments & townhouses, to traditional fincas & villas, available at some fantastic prices.


If a new build property isn’t for you, then don’t worry as it’s safe to say that you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding another style of property in the Southern Costa Blanca

7. Investment:


The term ‘investment opportunity’ is often used when people talk about overseas property purchases. The new build opportunities on the Southern Costa Blanca have opened up the possibility of investment buyers having the ‘best of the both worlds’ when it comes to reaping the benefits of owning a property in Spain.


Investment buyers can purchase a property at the entry level price (the 1st Phase) and when the building is complete they can begin to utilise on the property management and receive a profit on the running costs of the property, and of course on the capital growth too!


At the same time the buyers can use the property (low season, so as not to effect rental figures) and appreciate the benefits of such a fantastic investment and of course the Spanish sunshine! Talk to us for our take on the opportunities.

8. Easy Access:


With Alicante airport just 35-40 minutes drive away from the Southern Costa Blanca, it is very accessible.  It is open 365 days a year, with flights coming in from most UK airports & there are plenty of low-cost airlines flying to the location too.


There is also Murcia San Javier airport, around a 30-35 minute drive from the location.



9. The Weather:


The Southern Costa Blanca’s climate has been recognised as one of the best in the world by the World Health Organisation.


There are almost as many sunny days in the winter months as there are in the summer, and the Costa Blanca is known for being dryer in the winter and less humid in the summer that the other Costa’s in Spain.


You can expect up to 325 days of sunshine per year…So pack you sunglasses and sun-screen…the sun is shining!!

10. Amenities:


The Southern Costa Blanca is home to golf courses, property developments, shopping centres, hundreds of restaurants, bars and shops, and more, and really does have everything you need.


It is also a place that caters for all too. If you are looking for a busy, place with night life and tourist resorts then you can easily find that. But you can just as easily find the quaint and quieter areas and small villages too, that are a little more traditional.


There is such a large and fantastic choice of places to discover.
