Spanning over 200 kilometres of glorious Mediterranean coastline in the southeast of Spain, the Costa Blanca is not only exceptionally beautiful but also one of the top second-home markets in the country, with property sales at their highest level since 2008.
According to JamesEdition data, prices for premium listings in Costa Blanca are around 50% lower than the Costa Del Sol, making it an opportune moment to invest in the region.
In short, in the Costa Blanca investors get more for less. The average property price along the Costa Blanca is $905,885 per listing or $3,019 per square meter, and the average valuation in the Costa del Sol is $1,742,087 per listing, $4,600 per square meter.
Our partner Luxinmo offers a range of exclusive properties in some of the top locations along the Costa Blanca. With a vast knowledge of the area’s high-end property market, the upscale real estate agency shared valuable insights with us, including four superb and varied residences that are currently available to buy.
Exploring the Costa Blanca; Jávea, Moraira, and Altea
Extending from Dénia in the north to Pilar de la Horadada in the south, the Costa Blanca features an array of pretty coves, impressive limestone cliffs, and pine-covered mountains. With Jávea, Moraira, and Altea proving to be three of the region’s top investment spots.
Charming Jávea is enclosed by two rugged headlands and peppered with beaches, including the Blue Flag awarded beaches of Arenal, La Granadella, and Cala del Portixol – named one of 2022’s most Instagrammed places in the Med by Condé Nast Traveler.
Rewind 50 years and Jávea was a sleepy fishing village. Today, its once-hidden coves are dotted with some of the most expensive villas in eastern Spain, as well as two Michelin-starred restaurants: BonAmb and Tula. The stunning Montgó Nature Reserve is also within easy reach.
Head southwards around the coast for 20 minutes and you’ll reach Moraira, a small and unspoiled town surrounded by mountains and vineyards, where Spanish character is revered and preserved. The area is home to idyllic bays and inlets such as L’Ampolla and El Portet, plus a private marina managed by Club Náutico Moraira, with 620 berths for yachts up to 30 meters in length.
Another half an hour along the Costa Blanca takes us to Altea, a distinctive town where the vibe is peaceful and laid-back, and real estate is limited. Sprinkled with navy-domed landmarks and nicknamed the “Santorini of Spain”, Altea boasts an elevated position overlooking pebble beaches. The picturesque streets, historic center, and lively boardwalk combine to make Altea a desirable place to live.
