La Marina Alta, a gateway to the Costa Blanca

Set on the Costa Blanca, La Marina Alta is a ravishing slice of Alicante. Luxury-loving travelers will adore Moraira, an upscale resort dotted with sleek La Marina Alta vacation rentals. The best properties raise the bar with private pools, spacious living areas and sparkling views of the Mediterranean Sea. Beaches may steal the spotlight but, stay a spell, and you'll quickly realize that La Marina Alta is full of surprises. You can get lost in cobbled old towns, explore hilltop castles and sip your way through prime wine-making country.

Things to do

Sip your way through La Marina Alta vineyards

The Costa Blanca may be known for stunning beaches, but venture inland and you'll find yourself in one of Spain's under the radar winemaking regions. Surrounded by rolling mountains, the Jalon Valley produces award-winning Tempranillos. You can visit bodega wine cellars in villages like Jalon, Alcalali and Parcent, or tour local estates in the countryside. Sip on something you like? With sun-drenched terraces and sweeping vineyard views, La Marina Alta vacation rentals provide an ideal setting for DIY wine-tasting sessions.

Activities

Sun, sand and sumptuous seafood La Marina Alta

Popular with expats, Xabia swaps high-rise hotels for palm-fringed resorts. The El Arenal beach zone is a favorite with families, with golden sand, shallow water and a promenade lined with cafes, ice cream parlors and seafood restaurants. While its hilltop castle is enchanting, Denia's real draw is its flourishing food scene. It's loaded with top-notch restaurants that champion local produce. Smack your lips for prawns, sea urchins, chargrilled artichokes and other regional delights. While eating out is a treat, La Marina Alta vacation rentals offer the perfect excuse to stock up at local markets and prepare your own seafood paella.

Weather

Springtime blossoms in La Marina Alta

Like the rest of the Costa Blanca, La Marina Alta is at its best in the summer. Crowds spike from June to September, when La Marina Alta enjoys clear skies and sultry temperatures that hover around the 80s and 90s. Thanks to its sunny Mediterranean climate, fall can still usher in gorgeous beach weather. Even in winter, daytime highs can creep well into the 60s, which means sunbathing's not out the question. The Jalon Valley is especially beautiful in the spring, when its almond trees blossom in a sea of pink.

Natural features

Golden sand and silvery olive groves in La Marina Alta
