The Costa Blanca is a place that offers all sorts of activities. Its unique terrain and year-round pleasant temperatures offer limitless possibilities of things to do, not only on the coast but also throughout the whole province of Alicante. If you love adventure sports, then pay close attention as you’ll definitely love these four recommendations… and there’s an added bonus, they’re all close to Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol!

The province of Alicante is one of the most mountainous in Spain, this can be easily seen in the many excellent climbing options it has to offer. One of the closest (and prettiest) to Cumbre del Sol is the Sierra de Toix, in Calpe. Its stunning combination of sea and mountain views make for a beautiful panorama. Thanks to this, it’s an ideal place to go and enjoy a day of climbing.

Following the mountain theme and going towards the interior of the province, you’ll find one of the most spectacular via ferratas less than an hour away from Cumbre del Sol: The Monte Ponoig, in the municipality of Polop de la Marina. The route is almost a kilometre in length, with a slope that’s 265 metres deep and it takes an estimated hour and a half to complete. It’s a mandatory challenge for everyone in the province of Alicante who loves this adventure sport!

If you’re interested in going canyoning (gorge walking), there are many centres in Calpe which offer packages. You can get started with one of the most fun types of canyoning: water canyoning. If you’d prefer to go by yourself, you can go to any of the following canyons in the province: L’estret de Les Penyes, in Abdet; the Barranco de Mela (Mela Canyon), in Bolulla (where you can also enjoy water slides); and the Gorgo de la Escalera, in the town of Anna (which is near Játiva).

We conclude with an adventure sport that gets more and more popular each year: trail running. If you also find yourself loving it more and more every day… then you’re in luck! Just a few minutes away from Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, Benissa hosts the Perimetral Benissa race every year. You can choose between different routes: the 23km Trail, the 42km Marathon, and the most famous of all, the 73km Ultra. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get to know the Marina Alta mountains!
