Golf courses with captivating views
Golfing in Costa Blanca North is one of the unique experiences of living in Cumbre del Sol. With excellent temperatures all year round, golfing conditions are optimal 365 days a year. Playing golf whilst enjoying the outdoors and good weather is a luxury that only a few special places can boast.
A few minutes away from Cumbre del Sol, you can visit different courses and play your favourite sport. The Golf Club in Javea is a definite one to visit if you don’t want to travel too far and enjoy very well looked after courses. The Ifach Golf Club near Teulada-Moraira is a certainly impressive course. Given its location, you can enjoy amazing views of the Mediterranean and the Peñón de Ifach whilst teeing off surrounded by pine trees. Another two very interesting options for golfing around Residential Cumbre del Sol are La Sella and Golf Club Altea. La Sella (near Montgo natural park) with numerous clubs, was designed by José María Olazábal and has 27 holes. Golf Club Altea is another place to enjoy golf and has a 40 year long history.
Captivating hiking routes
Living in Cumbre del Sol means embracing nature and feeling surrounded by it. Not only for its incredible views of the sea, beaches and coves of the Mediterranean. But also for its extensive green areas and the number of natural parks in the area. One of the best known is the Granadella Natural Park. Thanks to this, the Costa Blanca coastline offers a wide range of spectacular hiking routes.
One of the best known hiking routes is probably the cliff paths. Along the coast of Benitachell there are spectacular geographic features in the form of cliffs. Some of them are even more than 100 metres above sea level. This route separates Cala del Moraig cove from Cala Llebeig cove. It is 4 kilometres long and is quite a pleasant walk due to its low-medium difficulty.
Montgo is one of the best natural parks in the area. There are many different hiking routes to do throughout. We recommend you do the classic route which runs through almost the entire park, it’s not very demanding in terms of slopes and terrain, but it will take you about 6 hours, as it covers about 16 kilometres. Within the natural park there are other interesting routes such as the Cova Tallada and Torre del Gerro.
The Abiar-Calistros route runs around the town of Benitachell and starts right in its town centre. This route focuses more on visiting key points in the town. Some of them being the Plaza de la Iglesia and the Portalet. It also takes you to the camí de la Torreta and the old system of natural wells.
Although this article was supposed to be dedicated to activities on dry land, we think we can make a small exception. We recommend the underwater route to discover the Moraig Cave. Above all, for diving lovers, it is a very interesting dive due to the special geological conditions of the place.
Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol offers a wide and varied range of plans, all falling underneath the same umbrella. Essentially, enjoying nature, the Mediterranean climate and an exclusive area such as the Costa Blanca North. We are talking about exclusivity in every sense of the word.
