The climate of Costa Blanca (Spain)
The Costa Blanca (white coast) is one of the most popular coastal regions in Spain and is situated in the eastern part of the country in the Murcia region. The Costa Blanca consists of a large part of the coast of both Alicante and Valencia. Along the Costa Blanca several large and several small seaside resorts can be found. Some of these resorts are very popular among those who spend their winter in Spain. Benidorm is probably the best example. The Costa Blanca has a Mediterranean climate, the most stable climate type in Spain. Precipitation figures are low all year round and the Costa Blanca gets many hours of sunshine. Hardly any extremes in temperatures can be recorded either. Subzero temperatures are uncommon and temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) or higher are uncommon in this part of the country. The mild and dry winters and the pleasantly warm and dry summers are caused by the influence of the Mediterranean Sea which warms up the region during the winter. This effect is amplified by the presence of hills and mountains that keep the warmth from moving into the interior and prevent cold from the interior from reaching the coast.
