The cold, wind, and rain often make for a perfect wintertime plan: sofa, blanket, and a movie. Although we love to spend time at home with our loved ones, on the Costa Blanca you will have many other options, thanks to its average temperature of 18 °C and more than 300 days of sunshine a year. The climate is perfect to enjoy its landscapes and activities all year round. In summer it’s always easy to find a good plan; head for any of the dreamy coves that we have close by for a swim, either at midday or to enjoy the evening breeze. However, in winter you might have to get more creative, so we decided to compile a series of interesting plans for this time of year. Ready to discover them?
- The most charming inland villages: You can visit them any time of the year, but their beautiful mountain landscapes, castles and old towns make these villages even more special during the wintertime. Here are some examples not far from home: Guadalest, Teulada and Polop de la Marina.
- Jávea’s route of 15 lookout points: In winter we enjoy the coast in a much more leisurely and relaxed way, which allows us to contemplate the beauty of its landscapes. This is the perfect time to do this route and discover beaches like Granadella or Portitxol from up high. Don’t miss Cala Blanca or the Creu del Portitxol, with views of Cap Prim and one of Jávea’s most peaceful beaches, Cala Sardinera.
- The most lovely museums: During the summer you can enjoy the nice weather by going for a swim in the sea or having a drink on the terrace, so we recommend that you take advantage of the chilly winter weather to visit those museums you have pending. There is something for everyone, such as the Chocolate Museum in Villajoyosa for those with a sweet tooth, the Comic Museum in Calpe, or the Abargues House Museum (Casa Museo Abargues) in Benissa, where you can travel back in time as it is a replica of a stately home from the 18th-19th centuries.
- A 5-star plan: Winter brings with it new seasonal foods and what better place to taste them than in the best restaurants of the area? You are in luck, because our Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol is surrounded by Michelin Star restaurants. Which one do you want to try first?
As you can see, options for activities along the Costa Blanca are endless, regardless of the time of year. You can follow our blog and our social media accounts to get the most out of the area and find out about activities taking place both in the surrounding area and at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. We’ll see you soon!
