Costa Azahar is definitely at its busiest and buzzing best during the summer period which lasts from Spring until Autumn. Temperatures tend to reach the lower 30s on most days throughout the summer months. Prices are usually a little bit cheaper outside of these months from Autumn to Spring, although temperatures do fall away into the lower teens. There is much more to do in summer though - especially with the number of beaches that the area has - so we recommend a trip then.
There are a number of spectacular resorts just waiting to be discovered in the Costa Azahar. In terms of great history, the town of Peniscola has a grand medieval castle whereas the charming town of Morella has picturesque, narrow streets and is enclosed by 14th century walls. The beaches along this stretch of coast are relatively untouched and feature soft sands and hidden coves that are ideal for scuba divers. The nature aspect of Costa Azahar is also what pulls many people into the region. The countryside is filled with orange and lemon groves and also contains protected parks for nice strolls and nature reserves for spotting some native wildlife.
The Costa Azahar is quite traditional when it comes to accommodation options and that seems to suit quite a lot of people. Rather than an abundance of package-holiday-style hotels, expect plenty of superb townhouses, apartments and villas for living life on your own terms and at your own steady pace. All along the Costa Azahar you will find incredible places to eat including tapas bars, restaurants by the coast with a seaview and other quiet establishments in the narrow streets of the resorts.
