Family holidays, romantic getaways and trips with friends are becoming more and more meaningful to us right now. Spending time with the people you love the most is one of the most important things in life and doing so in a spectacular setting makes the experience even more special. With its stunning landscapes, beautiful weather and limitless experiences, the Region of Valencia is the perfect destination to get together. And if you’re looking for a place where the coast blurs with the mountains and traditions and modernity live side-by-side, then look no further than Finestrat, one of the glistening gems of the Costa Blanca.
What to do in Finestrat
Finestrat is an enchanting coastal municipality defined by its impressive mountainscape. In fact, if you start your exploration at La Cala beach and end up on the peak of incredible Puig Campana, you’ll travel from zero to one thousand four hundred metres above sea level in not very much time at all.
With its narrow winding streets and houses clinging to the mountainside, Finestrat’s historic centre sits on the foundations of what used to be an Arab castle. From the beautiful and well-known viewing point, you will breathe in some extraordinary views over the county and the Mediterranean.
After being impressed by the vista, you can wander the colourful narrow streets and take in the pretty gardens, before visiting Sant Bertomeu church and Santísimo Cristo del Remedio chapel.
And to gather your strengths after discovering everything Finestrat has to offer, why not try some of the most traditional local dishes? A large pan of arroz a banda with a sea view is an incredible gastronomic experience that will lift your spirits.
