The COVID19 virus forced us to remain in our homes and deprived us of some pleasures such as drinking a beer in the sun or being able to take a walk outside the scheduled times.
The fate of the most awaited season of the year is still uncertain, a season that we look forward to most to be able to travel on the coast and in seaside places.
But, for all those who are lucky enough to be able to travel within the Valencian Community, from Flight Mode we would like to recommend five coastal villages that are worth visiting for their beaches and also for their beauty. For all those who still have to wait to discover them, take note and don’t miss these tips
Located on the coast of Castellón, Peñiscola has one of the most impressive castles on the entire coast. Located on top of a rock, this fortress was built in the 14th century by the same order of the Templar Knights for Pope Luna, the name the castle is given.
This municipality, whose old town is located next to the castle and walled and worth visiting, has one of the longest beaches along the Valencian coast with several kilometers in length, in addition to other areas more collected as the famous cove of the Moor, the beach of Russo or the Basseta, as well as other visits almost forced within the municipality as the house of Shells, the chapel of Santa Ana, the Bufador and the entrance of Portal Fosc.
One of the most famous and visited coastal towns of the Community is Jávea, located on the coast of Alicante. This municipality is one of the references of summer in our coasts due to the great leisure offer and the fame of its gastronomy and restaurants.
However, the most spectacular thing this municipality has to offer are its beaches and coves, where one can practice both snorkelling and scuba diving in its crystal clear waters enjoying many impressive natural spots.
It is considered by many to be the most beautiful or charming village on the coast. Beyond having impressive beaches, the municipality itself, of fishing origin, has a multitude of narrow streets in its old town that form white houses among which one wishes to get lost for hours.
Along with the beauty of its historic quarter, this town has the soul of a fishing town and has many places to go and things to do, from walking along its great promenade to the route of the chapels or the viewpoints: of the Portal Viejo, of the Plaza de la Iglesia or of Santa Bárbara or to visit emblematic places like the Torre de la Galera or the Torre de Bellaguarda. Also, the beaches and coves that guard the cliffs of this small municipality are a fantastic place for those who wish to practice fishing or diving.
For many, the name of this municipality is associated with the festival, since it hosts both the Rototom Sunsplash Reggae Festival and the Benicassim International Festival (FIB), which attracts thousands of people during July and August.
However, it offers a wide variety of tourist options for all ages, from water parks for the little ones to a multitude of beaches and crystal-clear coves, as well as a wide range of both gastronomy and nightlife options, making it one of the most appealing spots on the coast of Castellón.
Another of the most impressive and charming towns on the Valencian coast is Moraira. This small municipality has wisely preserved its charm despite the growth it has suffered in recent years and is considered one of the unknown jewels of Alicante’s Costa Blanca.
It has an old town full of historic buildings, fortified churches, watchtowers, castles and walls that give it a rich cultural heritage, as well as several beaches that stand out for their transparent waters such as Playa del Portet.
