Christmas Markets in la Costa Blanca
From now up to the first week of January, there are many Christmas markets in the many towns of la Costa Blanca. Artisanal products, food, hot drinks, and even charity stalls. All this and so much more for you to see at these Christmas fairs! Will you be going?
The Christmas magic is in full swing at Cumbre del Sol. In the town of Poble Nou de Benitatxell, this Sunday, 19 December, its streets will welcome a Christmas market that’s full of activities! Focussing on the little ones of the family, there will be children’s shows and a batucada for children too. And, at 12:00 you can enjoy a concert from the band GOSPEL IT with all the family.
A town really close to Cumbre del Sol is Teulada-Moraira, where this Sunday they’ll be getting into the Christmas spirit. In this market you’ll find independent sellers and associations. Being a solidarity market, all the proceeds go to the Red Cross. So, now you know, if you want to buy typical, local, artisanal products from this festive season, this is the place for you!
In Javea, the funds raised from the products sold in the market go to Caritas. In this case, the market has been open since 18 November and will close this Saturday, 18 December. Decorations, Christmas products and even a nativity scene! There’s still time to walk through these market laden streets.
BeniNadal, a big programme with Christmas activities
In Benidorm you can have fun with the “BeniNadal” programme that started 4 December. The children in your family will love this fair with its rides and ice rink. BeniNadal will be rolled out in different places, one of the highlights being the Christmas Grotto in l’Hort de Colon. This is where children can visit Santa a few days before Christmas Eve, something that the children will also love!
And going back to the topic of Christmas markets, BeniNadal also has one too! The “porrat navideño” (Christmas fair) is a place where you can find all sorts of artisanal products. And last but not least, the finale of BeniNadal is the three wise men parade, in the evening of 5 January. Go out and enjoy the most magical night of the year in Benidorm!
Festivities in your home in Cumbre del Sol
Another option is to party in style at home this Christmas. Here are some tips on how to organise a Christmas party without leaving Cumbre del Sol! With the stress of finding the perfect gift for your loved ones, decorating your home, and cooking up some delicious meals, you’ll be thankful for this quick list of tips we’ll give you to fully enjoy the holiday season.
Before anything else, we wanted to talk about the star of the show: food. As an appetiser, you can quickly put together a cheeseboard adorned with figs, nuts, and other dried fruit. Place it in front of your guests and you’re sure to wow them with this deliciously simple recipe. For the main, salmon wrapped in prosciutto served with vegetables on the side is an excellent and healthy option. And to finish, the dessert is easy – a simple but sweet turron de Jijona, a traditional Christmas delicacy in Alicante.
When it comes to decorating, you don’t need to fill every corner of your home with Christmas ornaments, but a few details here and there will help create a cosy atmosphere. For example, a Christmas wreath on the door to greet your guests, some candles, and tablecloths with a festive design on the dining table will make all the difference.
