Going for a walk is no longer a dream. At last we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel and we can walk and enjoy the sunlight. At Sonneil, we love doing it in these areas of the Costa Blanca and the Costa del Sol. Fancy going for a walk with us?
And remember: always follow the requirements established by the Government. Together, we will be able to return to normal. Because the good life is waiting for us!
Going for a walk on the Costa Blanca | Top 5
The Costa Blanca has more than 300 days of sun a year and we are looking forward to enjoying them like this:
Going for a walk in Denia
Denia is a small port city, yes. But don’t be fooled by its size. Denia has more than 2,000 years of history, and Iberians, Phoenicians and Greeks lived in it. There must be a reason, right? The castle and the port are its hallmarks, as well as a gastronomy to lick your fingers. Hopefully we can visit one of its restaurants soon! Denia is like a secret garden, and the favorite destination of those who love sunlight, hiking, seafaring atmospheres… It is a small place, but it is also really cosmopolitan. Living here is a luxury.
Our favorite walk: visit the coves of Las Rotas and admire the fabulous houses on the shore and finish in Les Arenetes, in the Cabo de San Antonio Nature Reserve. The Costa Blanca is full of nearby paradises like Denia. Are you up to visit them when everything is fine? 🏖.
Going for a walk in Calpe
Calpe is one of the most visited cities on the Costa Blanca, and we are not surprised at all! Great civilizations like the Phoenicians and the Romans lived in it. The Baños de la Reina site is just a trace of the importance that Calpe had in the history of the Mediterranean. For views lovers, looking at the horizon from the top of the Peñón de Ifach will leave you breathless! As well as the quality of its fine sandy beaches and the cleanliness of its waters.
Our favorite walk: the ecological walk that winds the coast from La Fossa beach to Benissa. Cliffs, crystalline coves such as the Mallorquí and Bassetes … and with the Peñón de Ifach as the background of our postcard tour. We can’t wait to do it! And why not? Rest at home looking at the sea.
Going for a walk in Jávea
Between the ends of La Nau and Sant Antoni, in the northern part of the Costa Blanca, Jávea, has nothing more and nothing less than 25 kilometers of coastline. Plenty to choose from! In addition to sandy beaches, stone coves, cliffs… the historic center has a lot to offer. Lose yourself in the medieval streets with white facades, gothic houses, wrought iron trellises, and the characteristic ‘rough stone’ of the area.
Our favorite walk: enjoy the seaside neighborhood from the Gorgos river bridge. Feel the sun as we reach the port walking along the Paseo de la Grava. The fishermen’s market, the yacht club, Cala del Pope and, if you dare, go up Cabo de San Antonio to the lighthouse. The views of the bay of Jávea are memorable.
Going for a walk in San Juan Beach
Playa de San Juan is the beach of Alicante par excellence. It is where the people of Alicante escape to disconnect from the city, where friends gather around a few towels, where the beach bars are an excuse to look at the horizon.
Our favorite walk: spending time walking along the shore, an 80-meter strip of sand, or walking along the kilometer-long promenade while we finally breathe in the Mediterranean breeze. Can you imagine living here and doing this every day?
Going for a walk in Benidorm
Known for its unrivaled hotel infrastructures, Benidorm has been transformed in recent years. It is not only beaches and good temperaturas any more, but also an ideal destination for lovers of mountain routes and spectacular views from the top of the hills. The Sierra Helada natural park is the best example. Anyway, surely you miss walking along the promenade and getting your feet wet in Playa de Poniente or Playa de Levante.
Our favorite walk: start at Plaza Canalejas and tour the old town of the city. It has more history than you think. Continue towards the Church of San Jaime and Santa Ana, Plaza de San Jaime, Plaza Castelar and look out over Cala del Mal Pas, the marina and Playa de Poniente.
Going for a walk on the Costa del Sol | Top 3
The Costa del Sol is full of small paradises great to relax. There, between mountains, waters and light, is where one can find the meaning of life.
Going for a walk in Estepona
Estepona has 16 kilometers of pedestrian streets and 18 of coastal path. Walking it is a pleasure. Of course: always keep the sanitary recommendations. The restoration of the town has turned it into a collage of bougainvilleas, flowerpots and white facades.
Our favorite walk: Calle Sevilla, with the tower of the Nuestra Señora de los Remedios church in the background. For sunset: the beach, always the beach.
Do you want to play a round of golf as much as we do? The Costa del Sol is especially known for having the best golf clubs in the world. What better tan practicing again in Valle Romano, Doña Julia golf course, Finca Cortesin or Estepona Golf, where our Doral Golf Residences promotion is located. Can you imagine living on a golf course? Breakfast and let’s play!
Going for a walk in Malaga
Yes, we could write a book about walking around Malaga… in fact, surely there is one already. If you are lucky enough to live in Malaga, you must know very well that it is much more than a tourist destination. History, gastronomy and culture are the three pillars of the capital of the Costa del Sol, which was founded 3,000 years ago. There is still a bit left to delight us again with the fried fish and the taverns, but just thinking about it makes our mouths water!
Our favorite walk: obviously, discovering its history by walking through the old town. The cathedral – called La Manquita, the one-handed, because it only has one tower-, Calle San Agustín, Casa Picasso, the Roman Theater, the Alcazaba and, of course, Calle Larios.
Going for a walk in Frigiliana
In 2014, its old town was certified as a Historic Artistic Complex. No wonder: it is so well preserved that it seems to have been built yesterday. It is very popular among foreigners, which gives it a very curious cosmopolitan air. Flowered corners, hidden squares, terraces with views, small fountains… and our beloved white facades. For those with a sweet tooth: the cane honey from Ingenio Nuestra Señora del Carmen – the only cane honey factory in Europe – is spectacular.
Our favorite walk: wandering through its streets is enough for us. Exercise your legs and go up to the Town Hall enjoying the viewpoints and tile decorations that tell us about the Jewish, Moorish and Christian history of the area. Or discover any of the white villages in Malaga. But we leave that for later.
Wherever you are, at Sonneil we wish you go back to normal as soon as possible, and that you enjoy wonderful walks along the Spanish coast.
