Winter ghost towns in Spain

Jump to last reply

I am moving to Spain in January for a few months,maybe more. I have searched the forums and know all about the weather at this time of the year. Malaga & Almeria seem to be the 'warmest' areas but the flights I am looking at only go to Valencia/Alicante. For this reason I have decided to stay in the Costa Blanca. I have heard in other forums that some beach towns are completely empty in the winter months and that some restaurants closed. Can anyone tell me which areas/towns are "still alive". I am not very familiar with the area. Only visited Barcelona,Valencia and Alicante 15 years ago. Loved those areas but I now have kids(10 & 11) and don't want to live in a big city. The map shows many towns down that coast. Denia , Calp, Campello, Torrevieja.Guardamar del Segura etc. I found some really nice places for rent in each town so any suggestions are welcome. We really just want a safe area with reasonably priced groceries and some shops. Something to do in the evenings, tapas bar, stroll on a beach or boardwalk, ice cream etc... Thank you
