Costa Blanca looks to Moscow for tourism


COSTA BLANCA is stepping up moves to woo Russian tourists. From Monday, a new permanent local representative will be based in Moscow to promote the area. This follows concrete steps taken by the Business Association of Hotels Benidorm and the Costa Blanca (Hosbec).

The representative will be working in the Russian capital from the offices of Turespaña, one of the nation’s largest tour company operators. Hosbec sees the investment of about €40,000 good value for money given the ever-increasing importance of the Russian market.

Thus, Alicante joins a similar initiative launched 13 years ago by communities including Catalonia, which reaped great rewards. Catalonia now boasts a stable base of Russian visitors and home-owners thanks to the initiative taken by the autonomous government. Statistics indicate that Russian visitors spend more than their UK counterparts, making their presence more beneficial to the Costa Blanca coffers.




  1. La Manga in the costa Calida Is alos a great place The beaches along the La Manga Strip are simply outstanding beauty. The La Manga area is host to many beaches of wonderful warm clear waters including the Mar Menor, Europes largest lagoon. Due to the Mar Menor lagoon being so shallow at a depth of only 7 metres at its deepest point, it means during the summer the water becomes very warm. Swimming during the evenings is a possibility and with miles of sandy beaches that are mostly blue flag, theres enough room for everyone
