Beaches

It's all so easy to enjoy the golden sands and clear clean sea that the Costa Blanca has to offer. Starting with the search for the chosen spot is all so important, plant the umbrella, make home for the cool box and lay the towel, marking your territory your place! Whether it be sitting and not doing anything other than relax and recharge, listening to the sounds of the wave caressing the shore while drifting in and out of a dreamy nap, taking a stroll, building sandcastles with the children or grandchildren, playing a game of racket ball or volleyball, reading a favourite novel or simply passing the hours people watching, you are guaranteed a wonderful time.

During the summer months in the larger of the coastal towns Chiringuitos (beach bars) are erected, some smaller than others, some discreet, some playing music and others that are so peaceful that you just sit back on the shore and listen to the calming sounds of the Mediterranean. Try them all until you find a favourite!!!

If you are looking for something a little more adventurous, Kite Surf is the newest sport to hit the Costa's, on any given day when the wind is slightly higher than your normal hairdryer speed you will find the enthusiasts flying high above the waves of the Mediterranean bouncing along the sea with finesse. The combination of surfing and kite flying is an energetic sport and is equally exciting for the spectators. There are kite surf instructors and clubs if you wanted to enrol in some beginner's lessons, ask those already taking part in the sport to find out who can teach you.

Remember to apply plenty of high factor sun cream before setting out for a day on the beach, the Spanish sun during the summer months can be very strong, you will also find as the famous saying goes "Only Mad Dogs and English men go out in the mid day sun" that between 1pm and 4pm the beaches are less crowded as the Spanish go home to eat and siesta in this time, perhaps a good lead to follow.

The Blue flag of water and beach quality flies over the beaches of the Costa Blanca, Costa Azahar and Valencia Terra I Mar. The sun shines over the Mediterranean for almost 3000 hours a year, creating sensational and often dramatic sunrises and sunsets.
