Route from the Costa Blanca (White Coast) to the Costa del Azahar (Blossom Coast).
Jávea is a village with many attractive aspects. Jávea -Xábia has preserved an interesting old historical center, characterized by narrow streets, buildings with many arches in their entrance, gothic windows, grilles, etc. The main characteristic feature of its buildings is the rough, ocher colored sandstone extracted from the nearby quarry. This setting is completed by a beautiful set of beaches and coves, like the Playa del Arenal, Cala Blanca, Cala de la Barraca, Cala de la Granadella, Cala Blanca... Close to Jávea is the Natural Park of Montgó, that seems to protect the village of Jávea. Do not miss visiting the beautiful capes of La Nao, San Martín or San Antonio, or the near fun park Tierra Mítica, or other lovely towns like Altea or Benidorm.
Starting from the Parador of El Saler, you will have the chance to discover one of the most attractive large towns of our country. Do not miss visiting the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (The Arts and Sciences Complex), designed by Santiago Calatrava and strolling through the old center of Valencia: the Lonja (Old Market), World Cultural Heritage, the Mercado Central, the Palace of the Generalitat, the Palace of the Marqués de Dos Aguas, and the Serranos and Quart Towers. Spend some time at the IVAM - the Modern Arts Museum - , or the Cultural Center of La Beneficiencia and the Museum of Modern Art, with its interesting art collections and exhibitions. But golf is also awaiting you, and the Spa at the Parador, the sea and the beach and a little excursion with the boat through the Albufera to admire the sunset.
The Maestrazgo Region is a luminous façade on the shore, in which the mountains and ranges of the interior dilute into the sea. Benicarlo is a perfect starting point to know this pleasant coast, with villages like Peñíscola, dominated by the impressive fortress of the Papa Luna, which seems to be flying over the waves and the old center of the village. In the interior, we may visit areas like Els Ports-Maestrat, with lovely villages like Morella, with numerous civic and religious buildings reflecting its history. You may also enjoy at the Parador a few days of relaxation, practicing golf at its Pitch an Putt.
