The contrasts of the Coast of Azahar
There is in Castellón one of the most privileged areas for its beaches and its possibilities for visitors who come to the area. We refer to the Coast of Azahar that just as in other parts of the Balearic Sea, it also has its own name. It is composed by more than 100 kilometres of beaches and coves that make it unique.
As a curiosity we can say that it receives the name of Azahar because there are enough crops of oranges in the area and this tree flower received that name. When they bloom is a real sight to behold.
The municipalities that comprise this area ranging from Vinaroz through Bernicarlo or Peñíscola ending in Moncofa. Within all this territory there is a wide range of hotels and very juicy options for tourists.
Nature lovers have the Sierra de Irta inside that reaches the coast and crosses it for many miles. They can also enjoy the wetlands of the Prat Cabanes-Torreblanca or the secluded islands of Columbretes reserve.
In terms of the supply of leisure capital, Castellón de la Plana continues to be the benchmark for e.g. spend a good night having dinner and then walk along the promenade. Furthermore, its beaches are in very good condition.
If what you like is more quiet you have villas with charm as the village of Mascarell, which has a wall that covers all the Center or go to a fishing village to enjoy the tranquility by the sea.
