torre de la horadada alicante costa blanca


At Costa Cálida Promotores we always highlight the quality of our promotions, the climate of the Costa Blanca and the surroundings. To understand this environment, how about talking a little about our favourite place? How about Torre de la Horadada?

Read the article to the end, and you will surely discover new experiences.


Alicante beaches

Torre de la Horadada is a coastal municipality located within the municipality of Pilar de la Horadada, in the south of the province of Alicante, near the community of the Region of Murcia.

Its name comes from a 16th century watchtower located on Punta de la Horadada, a promontory pierced by the sea. The tower formed part of a watchtower system for the Kingdom of Valencia. This system relieved the inhabitants of the area from constant pirate attacks.

Torre de la Horadada is a beautiful and well-preserved place that offers some of the best bathing in Spain.



To talk about Torre de la Horadada and not mention its beaches is a sin, so let’s review some of the most outstanding ones.

  • Playa del Conde: the jewel in the crown of Torre de la Horadada. Located at the foot of the watchtower, this beach is usually awarded the Blue Flag, which indicates the quality of its waters, sand and services. From here you can enjoy the most spectacular sunrises in the area. It is not for nothing that this beach was chosen to be the site of the pirate watch…

  • Playa Las Villas: with fine sand and transparent waters, this beach offers a quiet and safe bathing. Moreover, if you like to move around, the Sardinero promenade starts from here and ends at Jesuitas beach.

  • Playa Jesuitas: this is a wide cove that incorporates a natural protection element for bathing. It is usually the beach of choice for people who decide to go along the coast to find more secluded coves and spectacular bathing spots.

Whether by the sea or in the mountains, the surroundings of Torre de la Horadada are a unique place to stretch your legs.

Alongside the sea are kilometre-long promenades that take you from beach to beach, cove to cove, with viewpoints at key points so you can enjoy the view or capture the natural beauty of the Costa Blanca. These walks pass through three municipalities: El Mojón, Torre de la Horadada and Mil Palmeras. A thousand and one nooks and crannies to discover.

Inland, a network of hiking trails shows us all the natural and ecological potential of the area, with some of the most impressive views to be had on the Costa Blanca. If there is one route that stands out, it is the Rio Seco riverbed, an easy route ideal for families and children, as along the way you will find curious erosion of rock formations.

traditional festivals of the Costa Blanca


The home is the most important thing. We are well aware of this at Costa Cálida Promotores. But we cannot lock ourselves up in our home, however beautiful it may be. We have to go out, socialize, discover, live….

That’s why this occasion we are going to talk about something we and millions of people who visit us every year are passionate about: the traditional festivals of the Costa Blanca.

Have you got your pen and paper ready to take notes? Well, here we go.

Traditional Festival of the Costa Blanca


live on the costa blanca


Without a doubt, the most important festivals on the Costa Blanca. It brings together millions of visitors who stroll among the ninots marvelling at the technical and creative display. That is, when they are not enjoying the mascletá, a fireworks display like few others in the world. It is held in mid-March, bringing the towns of the Costa Blanca to a standstill.

But what are the ninots? They are huge sculptures with an exquisite taste for detail that are made for a whole year to fulfil a single purpose: to burn on the Night of the Cremà. All of them… except one, the winner of the Fallas, the work that has managed to make an impact due to its technical level and its detail. That work contemplates how the rest burn.

The centre of the Fallas is undoubtedly Valencia, but all along the Costa Blanca we can find the same essence, and even improved, as we will not have to fight against the tourist hordes that flood the streets of the capital of Turia.


traditional festivals of the Costa Blanca

Of a much more historical nature than the Fallas, this festival is spread throughout the Costa Blanca. It commemorates the victory of the Christians over the Arabs in 1279. It lasts several days and includes parades, battles, markets… A historical re-enactment with festive overtones that make it one of the most important and varied festivals in Spain.

If you want to discover history, remember battles or taste food from the era, you have a date with the Costa Blanca in September.

We leave history and spectacle aside to take a look at a festival that has gained an international repercussion as rarely seen before: the Tomatina.

What is La Tomatina? Without a doubt, it is one of the most peculiar festivals in the world. It consists of gathering in a town square (Buñol) on 29th August. What for? To throw more than 100 tons of tomatoes at each other. Yes, you read that right. More than 100 tons of tomatoes. Without ceremony or rules. The trucks unload the tomatoes, people pick them up and throw them at each other.

That’s Tomatina. So simple. So peculiar. So attractive.


traditional festivals of the Costa Blanca


The most magical night of the year for the inhabitants of the Costa Blanca. It is celebrated from the 23rd to the 24th of June all over the Levante. What does it involve? Spending an incredible night with friends and family on the beach. Hearty dinners, drinks… and bonfires, lots of bonfires, hundreds of thousands of them spread all along the coast that defy the night.

Do you want to experience a night of San Juan? Then don’t forget the tradition: you have to swim, run out of the water and jump over a bonfire. Oh, and don’t forget to share with those around you the traditional coca, a huge cake decorated and accompanied with wine.

Nights will never be the same.


The Costa Blanca is full of fiestas and traditions that will leave you open-mouthed. Every village, every corner, every big town… They all have their own way of celebrating the historic and the unique, whether it’s with huge constructions made for the fire or with a cake, wine and a bonfire.

Don’t miss these and many other fiestas that we can’t fit here due to space problems. We assure you that you will come back to each one of them.

Typical dishes of the Costa Blanca



At Costa Cálida Promotores we not only build homes with the best materials, the most modern and respectful techniques and the most meticulous finishes. At Costa Cálida Promotores we also choose the best places to live. Communications, services, beach, sun… and the best typical dishes.

Because if the Costa Blanca is famous for anything, apart from its picture-postcard villages (as we saw in this article), it is for its gastronomy. A gastronomy with thousands of years of history, based on the Mediterranean diet and with the products of the sea at the heart of its creations (without forgetting the vegetables harvested in the huerta). A sea rich in fish and seafood, from which the freshest and most flavourful delicacies are obtained.

Are you thinking of coming to live on the Costa Blanca?

Well, don’t think twice, because you’ll be able to enjoy typical dishes like this.



Arroz a banda
The rice dish with the most sea flavour on the Costa Blanca


Rice from the Comunidad Valenciana is famous around the world. But the dishes that can be prepared with it go far beyond the well-known paella. Such as arroz a banda, a typical fisherman’s dish, made with fish stock, seafood, ñora (a spicy dried pepper) and served with the famous alioli sauce, an emulsion of olive oil and garlic. A perfect dish to enjoy on the seashore and with a good piece of homemade bread.




Parrillada de marisco
The best grilled seafood for sharing


Without leaving seafood, a dish that is a must try on the Costa Blanca is the parrillada de marisco (grilled seafood). A simple dish but one that impresses with its flavour and variety. It consists of a large platter full of all kinds of seafood (prawns, langoustines, lobsters…) cooked on the grill with salt, garlic, parsley and olive oil. One of the most Mediterranean mixes you can try.

Tip: if you want to enjoy the authentic parrillada de marisco of the Costa Blanca, you have to go to Calpe.




The essence of paella made from thick pasta noodles


Originally from Gandía, this plate is very similar to a paella or a typical rice dish. The main difference lies in its basic ingredient: rice is replaced by thick pasta noodles that absorb all the flavours of the cooking broth. As with arroz a banda, it is usually prepared with fish stock, seafood, vegetables and the essential alioli sauce. A dish that may seem strange at first sight, but has a unique flavour and texture.




The most original salad on the Costa Blanca


This is a typical recipe from the inland villages of the province of Alicante. It consists of a mixture of olive oil, dried peppers and salted fish. It is ideal to eat with bread or to accompany other dishes, as it can be considered a salted fish salad. It is undoubtedly one of the most authentic dishes that combines the great tradition of the huerta and the sea.




The best Alicante stew topped with an egg


Another typical Alicante creation that combines land and sea. Borreta is a stew with potatoes, spinach, ñoras and salted fish. Perfect for winter days after a long walk through the inland areas of the Costa Blanca. As an extra, a poached egg is usually added per person.




The ideal meal to get your strength back on winter days.


We continue with perfect dishes for the coldest days of winter. It is considered a unique meal, as the mixture of ingredients is one of the most complete you can find. Olleta has: rice, vegetables, legumes, pork ribs, bacon, onion and ñora. There are hundreds of variations on this recipe (even a vegan version without meat), but with one thing in common: a couple of spoonfuls, and you will recover all your strength.


As you can see, the Costa Blanca is much more than beautiful villages, dream beaches, rugged terrain and an enviable weather. The Costa Blanca is also a temple of the most traditional Mediterranean gastronomy, where the huerta and the sea go hand in hand in every meal to create intense and healthy flavours.

Because the gastronomy of the Costa Blanca is not just cuisine, it is a way of life.

buy houses on the costa blanca

There are many reasons to live on the Costa Blanca, as we mentioned in this article. But one of the most important, without a doubt, is its towns and villages. There are hundreds of places to discover on the Costa Blanca, and all of them tell a little piece of Spanish and world history.

That is why Costa Cálida Promotores is going to review the most emblematic places to visit in the southeast of Spain. But first, a bit of context.


Costa Blanca
The Costa Blanca has some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Spain.

The Costa Blanca is the name given to the coastline in the province of Alicante in southeastern Spain, one of the regions with the best climate on the Iberian Peninsula. It stretches from Denia in the north to Pilar de la Horadada in the south. 244km of beaches, coves and cliffs.

And why is it called Costa Blanca? As we will see later, most of the villages in this area paint the facades of their buildings white. As the sun hits the houses, the villages glow, making the whole area look like a white coast from the air.

But the towns in this part of southeastern Spain are much more than white walls. They play with history, with the ancient and the modern, without forgetting the natural landscapes that range from the eternal beaches of fine sand to the most rugged corners of the mountains.

Places like the ones we are going to see below (although there are many more).



Altea, one of the most beautiful villages on the Costa Blanca

It is considered by many to be the most beautiful village on the Costa Blanca. Overlooking the sea and with a fishing tradition, Altea stands out for its whitewashed houses and cobbled streets that form postcards to stroll through. In the same day you can visit all the tourist attractions of this town: the promenade and the port, the old town, the Garden of the Senses, the Orthodox Church, the walled remains, the church of Nuestra Señora del Consuelo

To visit Altea is to be surprised at every step, as this fishing village hides in its streets as much history as beauty. If you are on the Costa Blanca, you have to visit it. If you don’t, you will have wasted your trip.



Peñón de Ifach
The Peñón de Ifach in Calpe is one of the most impressive natural structures on the Costa Blanca.

Calpe is another of the most beautiful towns on the Costa Blanca. The best known image is the Peñón de Ifach, a 332-metre high mountain that has become a natural park thanks to its bio-diversity. But there are more things to see in Calpe, such as the salt flats, the Baños de la Reina, a Roman archaeological site on the seashore, the Roman Baths, the Torre Molí del Morelló, an Arab windmill, the 15th century walls of the old town and a thousand other secrets.

To go to Calpe is to be fascinated by nature, history and gastronomy.



Denia's castle
Denia’s castle over the marina

Without leaving the coast, we travel to Denia, a city that dates back to Roman times. With so many years behind it, it is not difficult to guess that its streets and corners are full of stories from all eras, such as the Torrecremada Park, the Fish Market and Drassanes, the Fishermen’s Quarter, the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (located in an old air raid shelter from the Spanish Civil War)…

But, without a doubt, the place that stands out most in Denia is its castle, located on a hill that rises up from the heart of the town and built in the Islamic period. Its views and the stories it conceals make it a must-see for any tourist.



Tabarca Island
Tabarca Island is the only inhabited island on the Costa Blanca.

One of the most peculiar enclaves on the Costa Blanca. Located nine kilometres from the coast, this small village is the only inhabited island in the area. Remains from Roman times have been found on its land, and it was permanently inhabited in the 18th century. It has a medieval wall in perfect condition, cobbled streets, white-walled houses and beaches and coves with turquoise waters that more than invite you to swim, they force you to do so.

If you are on the Costa Blanca, you have to swim in Tabarca.



The colourful fishermen’s quarter of Villajoyosa is one of its greatest charms.

In rivalry with Altea for being the most beautiful town on the Costa Blanca, this town has existed since Roman times. Villajoyosa is famous for perhaps two main reasons: its Moors and Christians fiestas, where historic battles are reenacted on land and sea, and its gastronomy, which has gained international recognition thanks to its deep-rooted fishing tradition and the numerous gastronomic events that take place in its streets.

Another highlight of Villajoyosa is to be found in its hanging houses, buildings that defy gravity over the Amadorio river. But perhaps its most outstanding feature is the Fishermen’s Quarter, located next to the port and with the facades of the buildings painted in different colours. A visual note that makes the town a must-see.



Jávea’s natural environment is one of its main attractions.

Like almost all the towns on the Costa Blanca, Jávea has a cobbled old town centre and white-walled houses that will delight any tourist, not forgetting its Playa del Arenal and its extensive marina. But the most famous element of this town is not in the streets, but in the surroundings.

Jávea has some of the most stunning natural spots on the Costa Blanca. Places such as the Granadella cove or the Montgó Natural Park, which includes places such as the lighthouse of San Antonio cape, the Cova Tallada, the Molins de la Plana or the sea caves that can be visited from the sea.



The medieval village of Guadalest is the best way to travel back to medieval times.

Somewhat lesser known internationally, this beautiful village has retained all its medieval essence. Perched on a rise in an inland valley in the province of Alicante, this historic gem boasts a castle that seems to rise out of the mountain, streets and houses perched on steep cliffs, and views that stretch for miles around.

If you want to feel history in its purest essence, you have to visit Guadalest.

As you can see, the Costa Blanca is home to places that are striking for their beauty and history. But the Costa Blanca is much more than towns and cities, as we will see in future articles. So be sure to visit our blog to discover a thousand more secrets.

Do you need more reasons to come and live in this piece of paradise? You have them in our homes! In Costa Cálida Promotores we understand and respect the environment, building houses that fit perfectly with the history and beauty of the Costa Blanca. You can visit them on our website.
