To the north of the Valencian Community, in the province of Castellón, the Costa del Azahar welcomes us with a coastline bathed by the warm waters of the Mediterranean. The Costa del Azahar, which owes its name to the orange blossom that is so characteristic of the area, is synonymous with relaxation. Its beaches and coastal villages are home to medieval castles and archaeological museums
The Costa del Azahar has an extensive ecological heritage with eight Natural Parks, among which stand out the Sierra de Irta, the Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca and the Columbretes Islands. It also has a lot of unspoiled landscapes, countless micro reserves and natural protected landscapes such as the mouth of the Riu Millars. An oasis for nature lovers who want to enjoy hiking, potholing, canyoning, horse riding or climbing.
Of the sixteen coastal municipalities that the Costa del Azahar has, its epicenter is the city of Castellón, where we will have the opportunity to admire such emblematic monuments as the Concatedral of Santa María la Mayor in Gothic style. In its surroundings we can visit fabulous towns like Vinaròs, Benicarló, Peñíscola, Alcossebre, Torreblanca, Orpesa del Mar or Benicàssim in which we have the opportunity to choose between the rest, the lively and leisure areas.
The six marinas of the Costa del Azahar and its calm waters favor the practice of nautical sports such as diving, surfing, sailing or kitesurfing. For the more intrepid ones, activities such as paragliding, parachuting or flying with or without a motor are very popular here.
