A province full of contrasts awaits you beyond the doors of Castellón Airport. Explore its coastline and inland regions, and let the history and customs of this wonderful destination take you by surprise.
DAYS 1 AND 2: NORTH OF CASTELLÓN
- One of the first potential stops on the tour is Vinaròs, where you can relax in picturesque coves, explore the old town, and taste some delicious local cuisine.
- Next, we have Alcalà de Xivert/Alcossebre. This location is so special as it’s so close to the sea and mountains, meaning you can go hiking on incredible routes through the Sierra de Irta or sit back and relax on natural coves and beaches too.
- If you prefer the inland, you should definitely head to Culla, which is steeped in history, tradition and culture.
- And you can’t forget about Peñíscola either. You have to see this beautiful town for yourself. With the Papa Luna castle as a backdrop, your photos will turn into unforgettable memories.
- Also, you need to visit the colourful and sunny seaside town of Torreblanca before you head back home.
DAY 3: ELS PORTS
Set aside a day in your itinerary to discover the beautiful inland countryside and small towns.
- You’ll fall in love with Morella, the capital of Els Ports, the second you step inside its medieval walls.
- Another inland destination you should visit is Forcall, nestled in between the mountains of an idyllic countryside.
- You should also pay a visit to Ares del Maestrat, which boasts an unrivalled history, and natural and cultural riches.
DAY 4: BACK TO THE COAST
- Stop in Oropesa del Mar to take in their natural beaches and wild and rough cliffs.
- The green route will guide you from here to Benicàssim. This journey along the Mediterranean coast will lead you to untouched coves and then to Benicàssim, where you can get a real sense of its culture, music and relaxed atmosphere everywhere you go.
- But if the inland is what you want, drive over to Vilafamés, which has been the beloved home of painters and bohemians alike since the 1970s.
- To round off day four, we’ll stop by Castelló de la Plana. Sea, orchards, mountains, history, culture… they’ve got it all! Explore its historical centre, visit its museums, and stroll down its streets. Have some fun at its beaches and taste the local market’s best rice dishes and fresh fish.
DAY 5: COOL OFF INLAND
- The inland region is full of endless surprises such as Montanejos, where nature and, above all, water are at the forefront. Why not go for a little swim in the river?
- Another place you should explore is Navajas. Here, you’ll be welcomed by a large, hundred-year-old elm tree, and if you walk over to the famous Salto de la Novia, you’ll find an enormous waterfall.
