Costa del Azahar (15) |
The Costa del Azahar is the area south of Valencia and north of Denia.
It is known as the Orange Blossom Coast.
The area of most interest is La Safor, Gandia and Oliva.
The Safor region of this area is a fast growing and popular area for the British. La Safor with Oliva and Gandia has some of the best Blue Flag beaches in Europe and statistics show that it has one of the best climates in the world. There is an abundant supply of excellent drinking water, thus avoiding the shortages regularly experienced in some other areas.
There are 32 towns and villages in La Safor including La Font d'en Carros, Villalonga, Ador and Piles all set amongst the vast expanse of orange groves.
The countryside is very green compared to other parts of Spain.
Oliva has lots of attractions for visitors with its clean beaches and shallow waters. The Oliva Nautical Club and marina provides moorings and a windsurfing and sailing school.
Oliva Nova Golf Course is an 18-hole golf course designed by Steve Ballesteros and is set next to the shores of the Mediterranean.
With its long, wide, golden, sandy beaches Gandia is one of the major tourist destinations in Spain. Traditionally Gandia's tourism has a domestic base, with the majority coming from Madrid, although in recent years it has been an increasingly popular destination for international tourists, mainly French, German and British. For culture, there are literary contests, the Summer University (Universitat d'Estiu), the International Festival of Classical Music and art exhibitions. Sports include water, golf, tennis and hiking.
Gandia has a number of shopping facilities including shopping malls and chain supermarkets
Costa Blanca North (34) |
The Northern Costa Blanca stretches from Alicante to Denia. The World Health Organisation has said that the area is one of the healthiest areas in the world and is especially beneficial for those with respiratory problems. The area remains green throughout the year, unlike the areas to the South, and there are wonderful mountain views inland from the miles of glorious beaches.
Costa Blanca South (65) |
The Costa Blanca South stretches from Alicante to the border with Murcia. Places of interest include the coastal resorts of the Orihuela Costa and the resorts of Torrevieja and Guardamar.
The golf triangle properties around Villamartin, Las Ramblas and Campoamor Golf are equally popular.
Currently there are numerous apartments and villas for sale all over the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida. We, like other agents, are asked to sell lots of properties throughout the region on a regular basis. Utopia carefully vet the properties that they offer to safeguard buyers.
Costa Calida (26) |
Murcia and its coastline (Costa Calida) are best known for its golf, beaches, and the Mar Menor. Lovers of golf consider this area their number one location choice – with a number of excellent courses and more being developed all the time. The beaches are glorious and none more so than along the famous Mar Menor. Almeria enjoys about 300 days of sunshine a year and is almost certainly the hottest region in Spain. The coastline stretches over 200km and abounds with Blue Flag beaches. These beaches range from long stretches of golden sand to small, secluded coves. This coastline is quieter than most of the Spanish Costas but popular resorts provide all the amenities required.
