Introducing holidays to Peniscola

Looking for a new Spanish holiday destination? Want to enjoy some sun, sea and sand away from the crowds of the big resorts? The stunning Costa del Azahar, or the ‘Orange Blossom Coast’ is one of Spain’s best kept secrets with beautiful sandy beaches, pretty towns and plenty of that Spanish culture we love so much. Head to the scenic town of Peniscola, tucked within northern Valencia, and you’ll find a stunning getaway with history, beauty and beaches galore. Peniscola lies in the province of Castellon on the Mediterranean Sea and is often called the ‘Gibraltar of Valencia’, thanks to its fortified position on a mountainous headland. Connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway, Peniscola has a small island feel with waves and stunning ocean views all around. At the heart of the town is the magnificent Castle of Pope Luna which perches above the rest of the white-washed old town.

Life’s a beach

The whole of the gorgeous Costa del Azahar is lined with gorgeous golden beaches and Peniscola is home to a staggering 16 of them! With everything from large beaches with fantastic family amenities, to small secluded coves perfect for a romantic day, there’s a beach for everyone in Peniscola. For a well-organised family beach, head to the sheltered Sur Beach, with showers, watersports and beach volleyball to enjoy. You can enjoy spectacular views of the castle as you swim. For a more secluded option, try the rocky Basseta Beach with its stunning sunset views, or the pretty La Petxina Beach, popular with snorkelers and divers thanks to its clear waters and colourful shell shore. The waters around Peniscola are warm in summer and many of the beaches are sheltered coves, making this a wonderful family beach holiday destination.

Top attractions

Aside from the miles of beautiful beaches, Peniscola’s main attractions are within the beautiful old town. Step back in time and explore the narrow winding streets and historic sights within this fascinating town.

Visit the unmissable Castle of Pope Luna, an ever-present sight in Peniscola. Dating back to the 10th century, the castle is a spectacular sight, with tall turrets where you are rewarded with breathtaking ocean views if you can make it up the stairs to the top of them. Take a guided tour and make an excellent day out for the whole family. At the rocky base of the castle, try and find the monument of Pope Luna, as he sits guarding his castle. For an excellent insight into Peniscola's architectural growth throughout the years, the towns’ museum, La Casa Del Ayer, is an interesting slice of history.

Nature lovers will be spoilt for choice with the vast Natural Park of Serra d’Irta to explore. This beautiful protected area includes both the coastline and marine wildlife, as well as taking you up to the mighty Serra d’Irta mountain range, perfect for hiking in. If you prefer a gentler walk, the pretty coastal paths that follow the Costa del Azahar are wonderful for a stroll.
