Location

Pueblo Montecala - Cumbre del Sol - Benitachell 

- Northern Costa Blanca -

The Northern Costa Blanca has spectacular mountain ranges bordered by the Mediterranean Sea. It is green all year round with lush vegetation of lemons, orange groves, almond, olives and grapevines. It's been rated by the World Health Organisation as one of the healthiest places with over 325 days of sunshine/year 

There are several walking routes on the Cumbre, all with viewpoints for some glorious and impressive views, and you can walk through the Cumbre's National Park where rosemary, thyme and wild flowers grow in abundance. During the summer the tourist office on the Cumbre del Sol offer free guided walks of the area. There are hidden bays along the coastline, most of which you can walk down to. On a clear day you can even see Ibiza. Moraig, the closest beach, is used almost entirely by local residents and their guests and is only a 5 minute drive (or a challenging walk for the fit!). It is a small, picturesque cove that has a secretive pebbly beach, a beach bar and undersea caves that are explored by scuba divers. The fantastic and family friendly beach of El Portet is only a 10 minute drive. It has a beautiful beach and fort, and the small inlet in the shape of a seashell and its crystal clear waters makes it a magnificent place for a relaxed swim. The beautiful town of Moraira, also a 10 min drive, is in a pretty bay with its own marina, sandy beaches, shops, restaurants, promenade and shaded park. It has its fair share of fiestas, the most famous being the Moors and Christians in June. People line the streets to watch the marching parades, listen to the bands, see the stunning, colourful costumes and have a good time. The firework displays are always excellent. The aqua firework display is beautiful, with fireworks being set off over Moraira's main beach. Calpe, a 30 minute drive, has golden beaches and a dramatic volcanic boulder, the Penon de Ifach, which is over 335 meters high and the largest rock in Mediterranean. 

About an hour’s drive away is Guadalest a spectacular castle in the mountains that occupies one of the most stunning positions in Spain, and is a must visit for all the family. Other places around also worth visiting are Denia Castle located on a rocky crag overlooking the city, built in the 11th and 12th century and offering views around the sea, city and the surrounding area; Algar Falls, one of the region's natural wonders, in an area that has been left almost untouched over the decades; Col de Rates, a hill with spectacular views; the spectacular Orba and Jalon Valleys, known for their luxuriant greenness, mountains and wine production; Altea, a town a world away from mass tourism, situated on a large bay with a sandy beach and modern marina; Valencia, Alicante, Javea, and Benidorm.  
If you’re interested in Theme Parks, then there is the Terra Mitica Fun Park, the largest, most exciting theme park in Europe, with incredible rides, pirates, gladiators, comedy street performers and shows all around the park; and also Aqualandia, which has Lagoon waterfalls and wild rapids, with water thrills and fun for everyone. If you like shopping, there’s shopping centres in Benidorm and Ondarra, and flea markets in the Jalon Valley, El Vergel, and Benidorm.
