The Costa Blanca can be divided into two regions, the Costa Blanca North and South, leaving the provincial capital Alicante exact location on the divorce.

The northern part is more hilly and mountainous and also greener because there is more rain and the south is drier with more sunny days, much of which is flat. This part is centrally located between the cities of Elche and the provincial town of Orihuela is called "Vega Baja" which literally means "low culture". Millions of years back there was a large wetland area and there will be also done a lot of vegetables, there are lots of lemon and orange groves, olive trees, almond trees, pomegranates and many more Mediterranean plants which we find there.
