Cuisine Cuisine from the Costa Blanca combines delicacies from both land and the Mediterranean Sea. Many civilizations have lived in this area (Celts, Iberians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims), all of which have all left their mark on the gastronomy.
The diet is a typically, healthy Mediterranean one; the Costa Blanca is rich in fish, vegetables, olive-oil, rice and fruit and the ingredients which are all used to prepare delicious, healthy dishes, such as Paella Valenciana, Arroz Negro (black rice), Arroz al horno (Oven baked rice), Arroz a banda (fish and rice stew), Arroz del Señoret (Princes rice).
If you have a sweet tooth then you will enjoy the local homemade pastries and deserts that the area is famous for. Or Jijona ice-cream (Nougat), which is made with the almonds of the region.
While on the Costa Blanca you can delight the palate with the wonderful regional wine selection. It’s worth giving a special mention to the local wine ‘Jalon’, due to its quality and bouquet.
There are many international restaurants close by offering a wide choice of different cuisines from around the world.
Climate The Cabo Roig enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the cold North winds in winter. The area averages nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.
In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination.
Sea views and access to the beach are appreciated.
A pity all restaurants are on the roadside, as you don't even suspect there is a sea 200m behind!
Costa Blanca reviews
Excellent beaches; poor urban planning (virtually all restaurants are on the roadside; the streets that go down to the beach often lack pavement, and their steepness defies anyone driving a baby stroller or a wheelchair.
Cabo Roig is a great holiday resort. It has lovely beaches and an excellent paved cliff walkway that goes on for miles.Great restaurants and great night-time entertainment. The bus service was a mystery however !The town has several bus stops but they don't display any time tables or any information what so ever.
Good place to stay with all amenities within walking distance. Shame about dogs allowed to foul pavements and rubbish from market blowing free over coastal walkway. Could do with more bins allocated along coastal path.
Costa Blanca reviews
Beautiful beaches shame about lack of facilities i.e. Toilets on some beaches and bins for rubbish.
Veel Engelse en Duitsers. Cabo Roig heeft veel restaurants en pubs maar helaas erg weinig winkeltjes. Stranden zijn mooi en schoon en heeft een ontzettend mooie kustlijn. Boulevard stelt weinig voor. Er wordt veel gebouwd in Cabo Roig. De spanjaarden praten bijna allemaal engels of ze verstaan het goed, dat was wel fijn, maar verder vindt ik het dorpje niet veel flair hebben.
