At which costa in Spain do I want to buy my second home? Most people know which Costa in Spain they are traveling to, but they do not know where to find it on the map. For others there are only 3 Costas, namely: Costa Brava, Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol. To remove all doubts, below you will find an overview at which costa in Spain you can buy your second home.

Below you will find an overview of the Costas from north to south with a brief description per region.

Costa Brava

The Costa Brava is the northernmost coastal region of Catalonia, stretching from Portbou to Blanes. It is an irregular coast with irregularly shaped rocks and large height differences, resulting in the creation of a series of mountain ranges that slope steeply into the sea. For this reason, the Costa Brava is also called the “Wild Coast”. The tourist offer of the Costa Brava is as extensive as it is interesting, tailored to the most demanding traveler or resident. History, art, architecture, the opportunity to practice all kinds of sports, especially water sports, are accompanied by an excellent infrastructure. You are advised not to ignore any of these aspects so that you can really get to know the Costa Brava, with its traditions, way of life and forms of entertainment.

Costa de Ponent

Below the Costa Brava officially lies the Costa del Maresme, including the area around Barcelona and the Costa de Garraf, together these areas form the Costa de Ponent. However, this part of the coastline is not known as such by most people and is therefore often combined with the Costa Brava. Costa Maresme runs from Tordera to Montgat with Mataró as its capital, then the area around Barcelona follows from Badalona to Gava and the Costa de Garraf runs from Castelldefels to Vilanova i la Geltrú, also the capital of Costa de Garraf. Just like the Costa Brava, this coastal strip is irregular with irregularly shaped rocks and large height differences, resulting in the creation of a series of mountain ranges that slope steeply into the sea. These 3 areas together have a wide variety of tourist options, there are beautiful nature reserves where you can enjoy the flora and fauna. Due to the rich history of this area, you will find a lot of heritage, art and beautiful buildings with a variety of special architecture. You can also use the excellent facilities here for sporting and recreational purposes.

Costa Daurada

When we think of the Mediterranean coast, we automatically think of vast sandy beaches, surrounded by pine forests, with a mild climate, sun, a blue sea and the outline of Roman ruins on the horizon. And that is exactly what you will find on the Costa Daurada. Behind the name lies a large stretch of the coast of the province of Tarragona, which runs from Cunit to Alcanar. The Costa Daurada, or 'Gold Coast', owes its name to the color of its beaches, the widest in all of Catalonia, but the area also includes mountains and the flat interior of the province. It is a region with a beautiful landscape and a very rich history, with well-known tourist centers such as Salou or Cambrills, the Universal's Port Aventura theme park, monumental city centers such as those of Tarragona, important monasteries such as those of Poblet and Santes Creu, and with some of the most important Roman treasures of Spain, including mosaics from the mausoleum of Centelles, the Arco de Berà gate or the funerary monument Torre de los Escipiones.

Costa del Azahar

On the 120 kilometer long coast of the Costa del Azahar, with Castellon as its capital, we find sandy beaches and rocky regions and inland the mountainous landscape. Here you are in a mountain region that is an offshoot of the Iberian mountain range. Most large cities, with an important pottery and tile industry and the production of footwear and food, are located in the coastal plain. The Costa del Azahar runs from Vinaroz to Almenara. The name Azahar has to do with the numerous orange nurseries that spread the pleasant aroma of the blossom during the flowering season. Off the coast of this costa lies the archipelago of Islas Columbretes, a natural park of volcanic islands. In Costa del Azahar you will find castles and sanctuaries that have been preserved since the Middle Ages. Some places still look the same as they did hundreds of years ago. In addition, there are numerous archaeological sites and caves with prehistoric paintings intact.

Costa de Valencia

The Costa de Valencia is located in the middle of the Spanish Mediterranean coast with Valencia as its capital. On the coast, this costa is bordered by the wide waters of the Gulf of Valencia and behind the horizon of this Gulf lies the Balearic Islands. The coast on the north side offers a combination of extensive sandy soil with apartment complexes and modern infrastructure on the one hand, and low farmsteads and green market gardens on the other. The southern coast consists of a series of dunes, pine forests and beautiful beaches. Inland, the landscape is mainly determined by medium-high mountains and vast plains. This Costa runs from Sagunto to Oliva. The tourist charm of the Costa de Valencia lies mainly in its cultural wealth, clean beaches, two spas, numerous natural parks, varied festival calendar, accommodation options and delicious cuisine.

Costa Blanca

Sandy beaches, low dunes and humid areas alternate in the Costa Blanca with rocky outcrops, steep coasts and very dry areas. The impressive northern and central areas, crossed by high mountain ranges, extend to the edge of the sea where the capes of La Nao and San Antonio are located. The southern part of the Costa Blanca, on the other hand, is an area of plains and hills irrigated by the River Segura, which flows into the sea amid dunes and low cliffs. This Costa runs from Denia to Pilar de la Horadada with Alicante as its capital and is one of the most important tourist destinations in Europe. Thanks to the landscape, the infrastructure, the beautiful towns and the friendly people, the Costa Blanca has a busy tourist activity all year round with many facilities for visitors.

Costa Calida

The Costa Cálida extends over approximately 250 kilometers of long white sandy beaches interspersed with steeply rising rocks and sheltered bays. The interior is rolling and contains wooded valleys. The Costa Cálida runs from El Mojón to Águilas with Murcia as its capital. This Costa has 2 different seas; the Mar Menor (small sea), the largest natural pool in the world and a true paradise for all types of water sports, and the Mediterranean Sea. This Costa has been declared one of the healthiest areas in the world by the World Health Organization.

Costa de Almeria + Costa Tropical

The Costa de Almería and the Costa Tropical extend from San Juan de Los Terreros to the town of La Herradura. The capital of Costa de Almería is Almería and Granada is the capital of the Costa Tropical. Both Costas have virtually no winter season, this is more like a prolonged spring, and the average annual temperature fluctuates around 20 °C. Thanks to this mild climate, you will find beautiful nature reserves such as the Cabod de Gata-Nijar park in the Costa de Almería. However, there is also the other extreme of climate and nature, namely the inland popular ski area Sierra Nevada in the Costa Tropical, where you can enjoy wonderful skiing. There are also many villages in both Costas with an interesting history, monumental heritage and hospitable people. Far away from mass tourism, these Costas remain a true find where you can enjoy the peace and nature. Moreover, they are booming in terms of amenities, facilities and tourist attractions.

Costa del Sol + Costa de la Luz

The Costa del Sol and the Costa de la Luz close the Spanish coast as far as Portugal. This area runs from Maro in the Costa del Sol to Ayamonte in the Costa de la Luz. The capital of the Costa del Sol is Málaga and the capital of the Costa de la Luz is Cadiz. Both Costas enjoy an annual sea temperature of an average of 18 °C and have elongated beaches with the protection of the many mountains from inland.
