About YourSpain

On YourSpain we focus ourselves on making and providing a guide for Tourists and Locals.
We bring you information of the Spanish east coast which means from Alicante till Almeria.
We bring you tips and hints,places to see in Spain. Like for example where to hire a car at the Alicante Airport.
Where is the best place to go out in Torrevieja or where can you find a great restaurant in Orihuela Costa.

Costa Blanca.

We focus ourselves on providing information about the Costa Blanca.
Which is known as the white coast because of its beautiful sandy white beaches.
The Costa Blanca is situated along the east coast of Spain. The Costa Blanca is the perfect place to live, it has a nice and soft winter. And is not as hot as its southern neighbour the “Costa Del Sol” with cities like Almeria.
The World Health Organisation even ranked this as one of the best climates in the world. Because of the nice warmth during the year its is perfect for people with arthritis. So they come and live here.

The Mar Menor is especially perfect for these people due to its shallow water and natural Mud Baths in Lo Pagan Mar Menor.

Maybe you are thinking about buying a house in Spain so you need an NIE number in Spain. Well we made a short guide explaining what it is and when you need it .

Local Markets and shopping malls.

Which souvenirs to buy at the local markets and where those markets are located.
Perhaps you’re more the person who fancy a swim at a aqua park then check out the aqua parks located in and around the Costa Blanca. We got the perfect guide for the Water Parks in Torrevieja.

Or you just want to go shopping and spend time in the multiple beautiful shopping centers like La Zenia Boulevard or perhaps Habaneras.
Even in Murcia there are many shopping centers. So if there is a rainy day it’s the perfect time to visit one the Murcia Shopping Centers.
If you prefer a typical Spanish city with a modern touch to it Cartagena is definitely worth a visit.
It originated before roman time and many roman buildings still exist in the city.


If you’re more a calm and nature person we also have the ideal road trips or the places. Where you can totally relax surrounded by some beautiful nature scenes or lovely beaches.
Spain is a country with many opportunities.
There are some beautiful places that sometimes are only a  couple of kilometers from where you stay.  You can visit the Mountain like the “Sierra Helada” or the perhaps the “Mar Menor” with its mud baths in Lo Pagan. Or maybe “La Mata” is more suitable  for you. Or the beautiful beaches just before Cartagena.

We offer practical guides for most situations in the Province of Alicante and Murcia . But we also give information about  the rest of Valencia like the information about the Ikea in Valencia or the upcoming Ikea Alicante.  Ikea has been investing lately heavily in the Region due to its popularity in Spain and also many expats that want to buy similar furniture like they had in their first homes.

Your Spain is monthly updated with new info or site improvements.
