With the arrival of the summer heat, the only thing we think about is cooling off. As well as drinking plenty of water, especially on particularly hot days, our body also longs for the sensation of that cool water against our warm skin. What better feeling than taking a dip on summer days? Among salt water, fresh water, and swimming pools, we offer you a range of options to refresh your mind and strengthen your spirit.
Can you imagine living just a few steps away from an area with large swimming pools? With the Montecala Gardens flats at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, you can cool off in just a couple of seconds. All you have to do is think about it and, moments later, you will be in the water. Moreover, the shared pools of these flats will allow you to enjoy your neighbours and have fun with them, creating memorable moments. As for the private pools, they have another kind of advantage. At Lirios Design, all the models have their own pool so that you can enjoy all the privacy, peace, and comfort you need.
As well as having your own swimming pool or one at your disposal in the common areas, if you love to feel the warm sand on your feet, the sea breeze and benefit from the advantages of saltwater on your body, you can also visit the many beaches within your reach. And we’re not talking about just any beach, but those that carry the blue flag.
Swimming in crystal clear water is an exquisite sensation, isn’t it? We are sure you have already enjoyed the calm, turquoise waters of Cala Moraig and Cala LLebeig in Cumbre del Sol, and so today we invite you to discover other marvellous spots. Playa del Portet, in Teulada-Moraira and just a few kilometres from Benitachell and the VAPF residences, is a perfect spot for a family day out. But if you don’t care so much for sand and prefer a less frequented beach, we recommend playa de la Grava in Jávea, a charming pebble beach characterised by its small and picturesque port and its easy access, as it is very close to the historic centre of Jávea. Why not relax on this beach after an intense day visiting the city and discovering its history and rich heritage of monuments?
But if you are looking for a place to cool off while you go for a walk and visit the province interior, you can’t miss one of the best places on the Costa Blanca: Las Fuentes del Algar. This natural environment offers several possibilities so that you won’t get bored and spend an exceptional day: hiking trails, natural pools where you can practice your jumping from the rocks, waterfalls and a picnic area. In addition, the water is a little cooler than that of the swimming pools or beaches because it comes from the mountains. Can you think of a better plan?
As you can see, blue is an omnipresent colour on the Costa Blanca: from the sky to the sea or even to your terrace. We all crave summer and with all these suggestions, we guarantee you a refreshing and unforgettable season. Don’t hesitate to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to find out more about the Costa Blanca and the properties we offer you. Enjoy a luxurious summer!
