Peníscola, Costa Del Azahar
Caravans in the Sun is happy to introduce our new park in the eastern part of Spain on the Costa del Azahar or Orange Blossom Coast – one of the most beautiful and unspoilt regions of Spain offering great beaches, towns and lovely countryside. The park is set between the mountains and the coast, near 5 Blue Flag beaches, on the edge of a National Park and just 23 kms from Castellon Airport or within a one and half hour drive of Valencia Airport.
The park is open 12 months of the year and has the advantage of a swimming pool (seasonal), bar, shop, laundrette, children’s play area, is within walking distance of Alcalà and there is a bus stop nearby. Alcalà has banks, supermarkets, butchers, bakers, greengrocers, bars and restaurants and a general market on Friday mornings. The park is just 7 kms from the coast and a short drive from the beautiful Spanish resort of Alcossebre with its 10 km stretch of sea, high quality beaches and unspoiled coves, sea front bars, fresh fish restaurants and a general market every Tuesday evening. Boat trips run from Alcossebre to the Columbretes Islands – a volcanic archipelago of 10 small islands off the coast – the islands have been made both a Nature Reserve and Marine Reserve – perfect for scuba diving enthusiasts.
The nearby Parc Naturel de la Serra d’Irta is perfect for trekking, hiking and mountain biking – there are many beautiful hidden coves, historical sites to visit and magnificent views of the coast and out to sea. Approximately 17 kms from the park is the historic town of Peniscola – often called the “Gibraltar of Valencia” and known locally as “The City in the Sea” – a fortified seaport with a lighthouse which has been built on a rocky headland about 220 ft. high and joined to the mainland by a narrow strip of land – and where part of “El Cid” was filmed. This is well worth the trip to wander around the old town and see the Templar castle which is magically set overlooking the sea. The town has fantastic beaches, the finest of which is the north beach which is around 5 km long and backed by a palm tree lined promenade. A visit to the Papal Basilica is a must and watching the fishing trawlers come back into the port and auction off their catch at 5.00pm provides the opportunity to buy and try the local fresh fish. Music lovers can enjoy a visit to Benacassim just 30 kms from the park and the home of the annual 4 day international music festival enjoyed by thousands. A 70 km drive will take you to the longest underground navigable river in Europe and the beautiful cave of St Josef and an 80km drive will take you to Morella – the medieval fortified town built high in the mountains by the knights templar in the 13th century and famous for its castle, Gothic church, cave paintings from 4,000 years BC and its age old fiesta held once every 6 years.
