Free bus travel to cala del Moraig

Free bus travel to cala del Moraig

Living in Cumbre del Sol means living in the middle of nature, between mountains and the sea. The sandy coves and bays of the Costa Blanca are one of its biggest attractions and as such, these treasures need to be conserved and protected. The cala del Moraig is one of nature’s true gems which can be enjoyed day in day out, especially now when summer is upon us.

One of the conservation measures put in place last year was to prohibit vehicle access to the beach. As a result, to make it easier to get there, Benitatxell Local Council has provided a free bus service from Cumbre del Sol to cala Moraig with buses leaving every 15 to 20 minutes. Say goodbye to reaching this natural paradise on foot!

If you want to visit cala del Moraig, all you need to do is wait for the bus to arrive at the car park close by the descent to the beach. Not only that, but the municipal transport service has organised the buses to take you into the town centre, running four times a day —at 9:30 h, 14:00 h, 16:00 h and 18:30 h. Bear in mind that if you want to have a swim from Monday to Friday instead of the weekend, the first bus leaves at 10 am.

This service makes it easier for you to reach the amazing cala del Moraig beach any day of the week during the months of July, August, and the first fortnight in September. And you can go into town as well if you need to!

As you are well aware, during the summer months, visitors flock to Benitatxell to enjoy this heavenly spot. And it is hardly surprising, seeing that it is one of the most beautiful little coves on the Costa Blanca! However, this year you won’t need to book beforehand when you visit. The controlled access will be organised from the car park from where the bus leaves. If the beach has reached full capacity, you will need to wait until the other bathers have left the beach.

Don’t miss a thing! And now, time to take a dip in waters at the fabulous little beach of cala del Moraig.

Update 06/09/2021: The bus service ended on 5th September

2019 Summer Events at Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort

2019 Summer Events at Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort

Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort is a little piece of paradise in which, thanks to its warm temperatures, you can make the most of all year-round. Summer 2019 has been no different, and we’ve had a calendar full of events and new happenings. Did you miss any of them? Here you’ll find a summary of all our events.

On June 23rd, we celebrated the magical St. John’s Eve to kick off the summer. This time around it was held at the La Cumbre Restaurant, where we were surrounded by a spectacular atmosphere and delightful views. The residents enjoyed a pleasant dinner and at midnight they made their wishes by the bonfire for the coming year. Those who opted to stay and continue the celebrations danced the night away until the wee hours of the morning.

On July 21st, as has become tradition here at VAPF, we commemorated Belgian National Day with neighbours and friends. This was the 3rd edition of the event which brought out over 200 people! The guests enjoy a welcome cocktail, dinner, a photocall, and music. In addition, the little ones had a great time with the entertainers and the older folks were able to participate in a raffle with great giveaways. Things were later livened up with a firework show as well as a singer who delighted us with her voice from the pool area, creating a festive atmosphere.

In August, we celebrated another special event, the 3rd Classic Car Rally. On this occasion, we collaborated with the Vehícles Històrics La Marina association of Benissa. The cars left from Benissa to drive to Restaurant La Cumbre, where they were on display all evening. Attendees celebrated the night with a dinner, music and a fun photocall.

In addition, on the 25th, the Tour of Spain passed through the residence and we were able to watch it from our villas. Guests were able to see everything from the front line while enjoying an aperitif and a meal that included music.

It’s important to note that they haven’t all been one-time events! During July and August, we offered free yoga sessions located in beautiful outdoor settings: Tuesdays at 7:00 pm at Cala del Moraig and Thursdays at 9:00 am at Mirador dels Testos, two locations in which our residents could get up close and connect with nature and the sounds of the sea.

Two padel tennis tournaments and one tennis tournament were held for our most sporty residents, in collaboration with Dylan Mary Tennis Academy on the padel and tennis courts at Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort.

It was a summer filled with events for all tastes and styles and we want to take the time to take all those who participated.
