Portland Holidays - now Thomson
You're probably here because you're looking for a Portland Holiday in 2013 - well, Portland Holidays have become part of Thomson Holidays now. In fact, Portland Holidays has been owned by Thomson for several years, but since 2011 the Portland brand has been stopped, and all holidays are now sold through Thomson. All's not lost though - it's still worth having a look at Thomson to see what they can offer you in the way of a good deal.

Costa Blanca

Meaning 'white coast', the Costa Blanca offers spectacular beachfront promenades, a hospitable climate and a warm welcome that, over the years, has made it a firm favourite with British holidaymakers. Boasting soaring skyscrapers, the Costa Blanca's main resort, Benidorm, is reminiscent of Manhattan and is just as vibrant with its heady mix of piano bars and bustling boulevards lined with cafes and restaurants.

Food & Wine in Costa Blanca
From steaming dishes of paella to sizzling fry-ups of bacon and eggs, there's something guaranteed to tickle your tastebuds on the Costa Blanca. As the largest resort, Benidorm is home to a vast selection of eateries. Traditional Spanish tapas bars jostle with fast food outlets serving pizzas and hamburgers. So, whether you want to sample local specialities such as grilled prawns with garlic mayonnaise or prefer hearty British fare such as roast beef and fish and chips, you won't have to look far!

Days & Nights in Costa Blanca
Nightlife on the Costa Blanca is legendary. While the winter months are somewhat quieter than the summetime, there's still plenty to keep you entertained. Whether you want to dance the night away until the early hours or enjoy the chitter-chatter of locals in a Spanish tapas bar, you'll be spoilt for choice. There's no shortage of nightlife in Benidorm with its vast array of cabaret bars, discos and karaoke venues geared towards fun-loving Brits. For a more authentic Spanish feel, head to the old town or one of the fishing harbours dotted along the Costa Blanca where you can while away an evening over a fruity jug of sangria in a waterside bar.

Sights & Sounds in Costa Blanca
Sightseeing: Head away from the Costa Blanca's coastal resorts and discover olive and citrus groves, rugged mountain scenery and colourful hilltop villages. Perhaps the most famous is the whitewashed town of Guadalest. Boasting a dramatic Moorish fortress, it's well worth a visit and provides a real insight into Spanish life and culture.

Sun & Sand in Costa Blanca
The Costa Blanca is renowned for its immaculate sandy beaches. Lively Benidorm is home to two broad Blue Flag beaches which shelve gently into the glittering waters of the Mediterranean making them great for swimming. The liveliest beach, Levante, is considered to be among the top 10 beaches in the world and so it's no surprise that it can get crowded, especially in July and August. Benidorm is particularly fortunate in that the main sweep of its beaches face south, catching the rays as long as the sun shines. Nearby Albir plays host to a relaxed, pebble beach while Cala Finestrat is home to a quiet, sandy cove. The Costa Blanca's principle city, Alicante, overlooks the sea and is served by the popular Postiguet beach and vast swathes of sands can be found at La Albuferta and Sant Joan.
