Peniscola is a wonderful place. The old town is a particular favourite. The cobbled streets are so special.

Costa del Azahar - the ‘Orange Blossom Coast’

To the north of Valencia you find the Costa del Azahar, or Orange Blossom Coast. The area forms part of the provinces of Valencia and Castellón and is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt regions of Spain. Not only offering great beaches but beautiful towns and countryside.

The area is still relatively unspoilt when it comes to tourism, compared to its neighbouring Costa Blanca, but offers no less amenities, facilities and attractions. The nearest airport is at Valencia.

Places to visit
The town of Peniscola with its great medieval castle and Oropesa, which conserves the 16th century Tower of the King, erected as a defense against pirates. The enchanting town of Morella
is a true pearl, with its narrow lanes, enclosed by 14th century walls. 



The attractive seaside town of Benicassim, with its Moorish feel is worth a visit, and is now famous for being the site for the annual FIB International Music Festival. Aside from this it is historically interesting with its 10th century Moorish castle.

Natural surroundings
The countryside of the Costa del Azahar is breathtaking, filled with orange and lemon groves, protected parks and nature reserves; the region offers plenty of scope for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits and rural tourism. Here you can enjoy activities such as hiking, rambling, mountain climbing, rafting, mountain biking, and more.

Beaches
The beaches are unspoilt and don’t get as crowded as those of the Costa Blanca, kilometres of white
sandy, interspersed with hidden coves, perfect for scuba diving enthusiasts.

Cuisine
The local cuisine, like most of Valencia, is largely based on fish and rice dishes. Specialities include
locally caught prawns, sardines and anchovies, as well as the famous Paella and the Tombet del Maestrzgo, which is a delicious soup.

Festivals
San Antonio (17th of January) in Benicassim, Vinarós carnivals, Magdalena (Castellón, March), San Juan (24th of June), Oropesa fiestas (25th of July), Santo Tomás (22nd of September) in Benicassim, 9th of October and Peníscola fiestas (7th to 16th of October).

Climate
The Costa del Azahar enjoys a mild climate, with warm dry summers and temperate winters. Ideal for all year visits.

Peñíscola review

It's a very beautiful town (especially the castle) but, to our taste, it's a little too crowded with lots of people on the beach and lots of cars everywhere.


Costa del Azahar reviews

The coast is beautiful. We always went to secluded beaches in the national park nearby, and it was amazing. There are also a lot of great activities in the vicinity. We followed some of the recommendations of the hosts, and the places we visited were very interesting.
