5 reasons to visit the Costa Blanca North
1. Climate – The North Costa Blanca has an ideal micro climate. There are clear and well defined seasons, which is why it is a perfect location to relocate. With an average of 12 degrees Centigrade in January and February the winters are mild and, at times, rainy. July and August have average temperatures of 26 degrees centigrade. Its always bearable but can reach highs of 40 degrees. The most important thing, of course, is sunshine. We have an average 320 days of sunshine a year. Even in winter, when it can be chilly, the sun has usually got his his hat on!
2. Beaches – Here on the Costa Blanca North there is a beach to suit everyone. If you ask 20 of its inhabitants what the best beach is, you could well get 20 different answers. From the golden sandy beaches of Denia to the dramatic cliffs and rocky coves of Javea, there are scores of stunning, blue flag beaches. Whether its a family day out with kids and a picnic, a day riding the waves, wind or kite surfing, or a quiet and peaceful day away from the madding crowd, we love to be near the sea. There really is no better way to recharge ones batteries than a trip to the seaside. If you are only visiting, you must do your research. It goes without saying however, you are never going to be disappointed.
3. Inland areas – Inland from the coastline of the Marina Alta is the beautiful Jalon Valley and surrounding mountains. Mile after mile of vineyards, almond and olive groves and citrus groves, punctuated with stunning little Spanish pueblos full of history and culture. The roads up the mountains are dotted with stopping points. The views are jaw dropping, all the way to the Balearics on a clear day. It literally feels like you are on top of the world.
4. History, Culture and Festivals – The Costa Blanca North has a fascinating history and a deeply protected Valencian culture. From the fascinating, prehistoric cave paintings to the centuries old churches that date back to the time of the Moors and Christians. Each town has its yearly fiestas when the town stops working and starts partying until the wee hours. Usually lasting a week, there is live music and dancing in the central plaza. In most towns this is followed by the running of the bulls through the streets. It is a demonstration of community spirit and a passion for Valencian culture.
5. Adventure and outdoor pursuits – The coastal areas attract those looking for beach holidays and water sports. The inland areas attract those looking to explore this stunning part of Spain. The area attracts cyclists and walkers in their droves and the numbers grow every year. The cycling routes are popular with amateur and professional cyclists and the area hosts part of the famous “La Vuelta” every year. The stunning mountain ranges inland have mapped walking routes to suit every level. Alternatively, hop in your car and drive. The roads are quiet and ambling and its a great way to see more of the outstanding beauty this area has to offer.
We are looking forward to serving you in the future here in North Costa Blanca.
