Overview

On site there is always a great ambiance with a personal touch, ideal to relax or participate in the organised activities like dances, live music, flamenco shows, BBQ nights, boules competitions, or even a traditional British Christmas lunch! 

The pebble beach is just 100m away via the site’s back gate, while the town of Benicarló, with its sandy beach, is a mile’s walk or cycle, and has a port, marina, shops and supermarkets. Peñiscola, very popular with Spanish holiday makers because of its historic past, is only 4 miles away. The site has a bar/restaurant with a variety of international foods, paellas, tapas, sandwiches, pizzas, burgers – anything to suit your taste.

 

Benicarló is an important fishing port and tourist centre on the Costa del Azahar, with a long beach, and a historic quarter filled with remarkable examples of stately architecture. Benicarló’s Moorish origins go back to the Middle Ages and its original urban layout remains intact, with many of its houses exhibiting their coats of arms. At the heart of the village is the church of Sant Bertomeu, a Baroque temple with a beautiful carved-stone façade, and spiral columns. On a nearby hill stands the hermitage of Sant Gregori, the scene of a popular pilgrimage every 9 May. Benicarló holds its own Fallas festival in the period leading up to 19 March – not to be missed.

 

The region is famous for its oranges and artichokes, with the artichoke being celebrated throughout February and March and appearing frequently on restaurant menus.
