In this blog we often refer to the extensive and varied range of cultural activities in and around Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. The cultural activities on offer increase exponentially during the summer months, making the most of the extra hours of light, the warm temperatures and the greater influx of tourists and residents.

And this summer is no exception. Poble Nou de Benitatxell, the location of Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, hosts a number of different cultural activities all summer. Following the fiestas honouring Saint Mary Magdalene at the end of July, August brings further events. On 5, 12 and 19 August you can enjoy the dramatised routes in the local Municipal Market.

If you are looking for something a little bit different, every Friday you can attend the “Moscatell Fridays“. This entails a visit the Muscat grape vineyards where you will discover how wine is produced at first hand.

Xabia is just a few kilometres from Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol and its festivals are back this summer. Entry is free, although you will need to book first, and you can rest assured that all the health and safety measures for the pandemic are in place. For music lovers, Xàbia Jazz is back again this year. The music of Juan Perro and La SedaJazz Big Band with Sole Giménez will fill the plaza de la Constitución with sound on 8 and 9 August.

Film buffs will also be catered for with festivals in Xàbia this year. On 10 and 11 September the 10th edition of the Riurau Film Festival will be held, featuring commercial cinema. And Ojos Rojos is a further image related event to be held as the summer winds to a close. This Spanish and Latin American Photography Festival will be held from 17 September to 17 October with an exhibition of snapshots taken by renowned photographers.

In nearby Benissa, the summer events programme also includes sport. Yoga classes will be available almost daily throughout August. But there is always to time to fit in some cinema and a music concert or event.

Benissa also highlights gastronomy this summer with Food Trucks which will be at la Fustera beach from 5 to 8 August. Historical and cultural matters are also to the fore, with guided visits highlighting the medieval charms of the town.

And finally, Altea which, thanks to the beauty of the area and its cultural activities is another dream destination. “Música a boqueta nit” is one of a series of concerts that the town is hosting this summer. Pete Lala (9 August), Inma Mira and Julio Awad (13 August) and Nhamirre Project (26 August) are some of the events planned for this month. If you’d prefer to stroll around and see an exhibition though, there are currently three on show in the town. Arts and crafts, Altea’s maritime history, and Balconades. This last is a traditional event where paintings by well-known or amateur artists are exhibited on the balconies of the houses in Altea’s historic centre.

This summer visit the Costa Blanca and enjoy its wide range of cultural activities.
