The Costa Blanca Has 2 More Blue Flag Beaches Than Last Year! Discover Which Are Closest to You!

As a resident of Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, you’re no stranger to Blue Flag beaches, such as Cala Moraig which has been awarded this title many times. We’re sure you’ve already fallen in love with its crystalline-waters and superb services and amenities. However, you might be curious to learn more about the other Blue Flag beaches that are just a stone’s throw away from your home in Cumbre del Sol.

The Costa Blanca is a privileged location for many reasons, but the fact that it is the coastline with the most Blue Flags in all of Spain exemplifies why it’s one of the most popular tourist destinations. Spain has been the world leader of Blue Flag beaches since 1987, and this year, the Valencia Community is once again the autonomous community with the highest number of prized beaches. That being said, Alicante is the province with the highest number of all for a grand total of 86 Blue Flags, more than Valencia and Castellon combined.

If you’re unfamiliar with what makes a beach worthy of this title, the recognition is based on four benchmarks:

  • The quality of the sandbanks and waters.
  • Environmental conditions such as cleanliness, well-appointed sanitary facilities and properly maintained surroundings.
  • The presence of lifeguards, rescue and healthcare services, as well as accessibility.
  • Environmental education and information about the ecosystem, code of conduct and water quality.

Let’s travel just outside of Benitachell and discover all the Blue Flag beaches in Marina Alta. In Javea, close to Cumbre del Sol, you’ll find three blue flag beaches: La Grava, l’Arenal and Granadella. Just as close, there’s Teulada with three more beaches: El Portet, l’Ampolla and Platgetes. Not far from these, you’ll also find Cala Fustera in Benissa.

If you want to take a day trip down south, you can head over to Calpe or Altea, two coastal towns just thirty minutes away. Both have three blue flag beaches each; in Calpe, there’s la Fosa, Cantal Roi and Arenal Bol; meanwhile, in Altea, there are beaches like Cap Blanc, L’Espigó and La Roda. In L’Alfàs del Pi, a quaint Spanish town, there’s La Playa Racó de L’Albir. Of course, we can’t leave out Benidorm! The city boasts of three blue flag beaches: Playa de Levante, Playa de Poniente and Playa del Mal Pas.

Get your sun hat, sandals and towel and get ready to go for a swim! Living at Cumbre del Sol is synonymous with living in a paradise where every day is like a summer holiday. What better way to make the most of your day than to head over to one of these Blue Flag beaches? Fall in love with everything that makes living on the Costa Blanca idyllic.
