Costa azahar

Costa Azahar is located on the Mediterranean Sea, specifically in the north of the Valencian Community, in Castellon. As is also the case with the rest of the Mediterrenean coast, we find in this area a beautiful coastline bathed in warm, blue waters, with a perfect weather to enjoy outdoor activities almost all year, especially during summer.

 

We come across with a destination that offers no less than 120 kilometers of coastline in which to enjoy the sun and beach, as well as many other posibilities for active tourism like hiking, mountain biking, sailing, golfing, etc.

 

 

 

We should also mention there are a number of interesting places to visit given the historical and cultural heritage it exists.

It is a feature of the Costa Azahar being a fairly active area in terms of Festivals and Events, specially in summer. During July, for instance, it takes place in Benicassim one of the most important and multitudinous Music Festivals of all summer, The Festival Internacional of Benicassim, commonly abbreviated to FIB. But this is not the only festival of the area. In benicassim it also takes place a Blues Festival, a Reggae Festival, as well as theather's festivals.

Another incentive we can not pass by is the gastronomy. It is known for the diversity of the fresh products found in recipes of their delicous dishes, such as seafood, fresh vegetables, legumes, meat,...

 

 

...However if we must choose between the characteristic ingredients of the area, we would vote for rice and its multiple recipes: paellas, black rice, arroz a banda, arrosejat... and for fideua (similar to Paella but with noodles).

If we go to specific areas, in Peñiscola you have to try "All i Pebre" monkfish, "Suquet" of fish, or the "caragols punxets".

As for nightlife, the truth is that the coastline is well known for its fun. All along the coast you will find cocktail bars and nightclubs where you will have a great time and, in summer, the festivity increase in the terraces of the bars by the sea.
