Oliva

Oliva has for a long time been a popular getaway for the Spanish living in other parts of the country; recently the area has also gained popularity amongst overseas visitors. Mainly due to the pristine, uncrowded 7 kilometre blue flag beaches that the area enjoys. The town lies in the heart of Spain’s orange growing region, 75 kilometres south of Valencia, 100 kilometres north of Alicante.

Beaches & Leisure
The 7 kilometre stretch of beaches at Oliva have attained blue flag status for there excellence in cleanliness and facilities; all of them are wheelchair friendly. Many of the beaches have sand dunes, perfect for a little bit of isolation. There are also a variety of water sports at your fingertips. Oliva Nova Golf is a beach & golf resort, offering 18 holes of pure golfing paradise.

Culture & History
Oliva is home to one of the province's largest Moorish and Christian festivals (Festes de Moros i Cristians), a treat for visitors in town during the third week of July. In the old town there are two churches: Sant Roc and Santa Maria la Major. Sant Roc dates from the 18th-19th centuries and Santa Maria from the 17th-18th centuries. At the top of the hill in the old town is Santa Anna Castle, built in the 16th century. There is also an ancient Roman kiln in the heart of the city.

Climate
Oliva has a Mediterranean-Subtropical climate, with more than 230 days above 20 °C. The winters are mild and temperate whilst summers are hot and dry. The average annual temperature is 18.5 °C

Cuisine
Oliva local cuisine is rich, traditional and wholesome, specialities include: Coques a la Clafó (oven-baked maize tarts), La Espardenyá (Eel Stew), Pebreres Farcides (Rice Stewed Peppers), Figatells (Grilled Meatballs), La Pilota (stew), Shrimps with Beet. The deserts are just as divine: Els Rosegons, Pacencies and Mantecados (shortbread). Enjoy the taste of Oliva in one of its many charming bars and restaurants.

Transport
Oliva's connections by rail are served by Gandia; a short bus journey away. The international airports of Valencia and Alicante (El Altet) have daily connections to the rest of Spain and Europe.


If you are looking for a holiday away from the hustle and bustle and typical tourists trappings, Oliva is the place for you.
