Unforgettable beaches and coves, beautiful coastal mountain ranges and infallible sun make Costa Blanca a paradise all year round.
The Costa Blanca region is perfect for those travelling with disabilities. It is why we have chosen Javea and this area as our forever home. That feeling of having a holiday where you feel as free and unhindered as you do at home is a must. It could happen while visiting one of the 170 beaches and coves along the Mediterranean coast. Or after completing one of the province’s 21 golf courses in which the sun shines over 300 days a year.
Food in the Costa Blanca region is second to none. The famous Valencian Paella or other popular international dishes are in the many restaurants in the region that are accessible and have stylish beachfront or clifftop views. After food having enjoyed a walk/push along the Arenal Beach, Javea or the walkway along to coast between Moraira and Calpe or watching the sunbathers on the Grava Beach at the Port in Javea. Sometimes the feeling that time has stopped is as clear as the fact that this region has been a popular place to be since Roman times.
In Costa Blanca, many of the towns’ old quarters are surrounded by stone fortresses and you can reminisce of the heritage from various municipalities in the Valencian province. The Moorish legacy can be seen in architecture and urban landscapes throughout Valencia. The region’s capital is Valencia which is well worth visiting due to its numerous historical monuments, including zoos and sealife museums with some magnificent architectural designs adorned by huge statues or sculptures on their roofs. Alicante also offers great beaches for recreation but inland visit Jalon valley which produces a famous wine classified among Spain’s 10 best wines according to Wine Spectator magazine; it features around 30 minutes drive from coastal towns such as Javea, Denia, Moraira or Calpe where there are plenty more things for tourists to do!
Inland are the villages Alcalali, Lliber and Parcent which all have year-round communities that hold local events at different times of the year. Back on the coast, a wheelchair user can find flat level pathways or wide promenades in Denia with its bustling town and port; Moraira with its lovely castle by the sea; Benidorm’s beautiful old town as well as Calpe – here two beaches to visit: one is calm while the other has waves. All these towns are accessible!
If you’re looking for secret coves I recommend visiting Cala Blanca near Javea where it is possible to watch the sailboats and swimmers in the cove. You can drive down the winding road to Granadella Beach allowing access down a ramp onto the sand (and again back up). This beach becomes very crowded during the summer months though. There’s so much more I could mention but since we’ve only visited some places so far then I’ll add them on my website when we explore any new locations together next time! From relaxing by an ocean view to enjoying coastal pleasures like mojitos and being a traveller in a wheelchair but not hindered or restricted. These are the reasons why this region should be your next destination.
