The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
This area of Spain enjoys a very temperate climate and even in mid-summer is not unbearable with the cooling air blowing gently in from the Mediterranean. Winter is generally sunny and pleasant. There are a few days when the rain falls, helping to keep the countryside green and fertile, but there are also days where, despite the calendar, you may well be able to get those shorts out and even go for a swim.
A 10 to 15 minute drive in one direction takes you to the seaside resort of Calpe with its famous Rock of Ifache. This measures 332 metres in height and is a natural park zone. For those wishing to get a breathtaking view of the coastline it is well worth the climb up the zigzagging path to the top.
A little further away in the other direction, past the larger resort of Javea, brings you to the Jalon Valley with spectacular mountain scenery and Bodegas for tasting the local wine.
The small sandy cove of La Fustera is walkable or a couple of minutes by car. Just 10 to 15 mins along the Coast Road brings you to either Moraira or Calpe, each with its own style. The youngsters in your party might enjoy the buzz of Calpe, but others may be seduced by the authentic Spanish charms of Moraira with its still bustling fish market and large Friday morning market. Known as the Millionaires Playground, Moraira oozes style and character, and the evening promenade from Beach to Plaza to Marina (always filled with dazzling boats) shouldn't be missed. There are restaurants to suit everyone and a choice of two sandy good-sized beaches.
There are plenty of activities to suit everyone - from leisurely boat trips to the more energetic water sports, fishing trips, golf, tennis, cycling, horse riding and walking. You may also like to visit Benidorm's Terra Mitica Theme Park or Aqualandia .... or just stay at the sandy Fustera Cove with its beach bars.
