The Costa Blanca is a popular destination. So there’s a lot of tourist information about the Marina Alta region. It’s impossible to mention it all on our website. Of course, we post our favourites, local hotspots and the best tips and tricks.
The Costa Blanca can roughly be divided in two parts: Costa Blanca south and Costa Blanca north. Our stays are in Costa Blanca north, which stretches from Alicante up to Dénia. The Costa Blanca north consists of several smaller regions, like the Marina Alta.
The Marina Alta is limited by Calp in the south and Dénia in the north. It goes inland up to Vall de Gallinera and Vall de Pop. So, a small region but with plenty to do. You’ll find pristine beaches, unspoiled nature and typical Spanish villages. The region is also known for it’s gastronomy, craftwork and local traditions.

Did you know this? The grape picking in Llíber in the Jalon Valley/ Vall de Pop started last week. Most of the grapes are used to produce wine. Grapes are mainly brought to the two local bodegas in Jalón/ Xaló. But some of the inhabitants of Llíber keep an old tradition alive. They process the grapes into raisins: an old tradition.
In 1472 the Moors living in the Jalon valley sent a selection of wines to the Valencian Court. They negotiated with traders in Jávea the sale of a product which, in time, would become the base of Marina Alta’s economy: raisins. The area is now famous for its local wines which belong to the ‘denominación de origen’ of Alicante and raisins are still produced in small quantities.
They harvest the grapes, dip them in boiling water and let them dry for about 30 days. Drying is still done as decades ago: on cane beds outside. When weather requires, the cane beds are taken inside the riuraus. This prevents the grapes of rotting and fungus. Riuraus are old arched buildings made from stone. They protect the grapes from rain but allow the wind going through. The most distinctive riurau is in Jávea/ Xàbia: d’Arnauda.
Most of the sultanas are not eaten by the Spanish, but exported to the United Kingdom. They are still transported as in the past: by boat from Denia.
Curious about this tradition of the grape picking in Llíber? Visit the Lliber harvest fair ‘Feria de Llaurador’ in early September.
Llíber got its own swimming pool. Beside the large 25 meter pool a kids pond is present. It is open in summer every day from 11:00 to 14:00 and 16:00 to 20:00. Entrance is € 1; a monthly pass of € 20 can be obtained from the Town Hall. The swimmingpool is open from May until September.
You’ll find the pool next to the school at Benissa’s side entrance of Llíber. Beside the swimmingpool in Llíber, you’ll find public pools in Alcalalí, Benigembla, Benissa, Murla, Parcent and Jalon/ Xaló. More info can be found on the website of Vall de Pop.
When you stay in Ca la Vall, you’ll find plenty options for an active lifestyle. Beside the new swimmingpool there’s a petanque track in the village. In Jalon you can play padel or tennis in the sportshall, yoga & pilates at several studio’s or pump the weight in the local fitnesscentre.
For the outdoor lovers, check-out the climbing wall Peña Roja at Llíber. Or take your bike or walkingshoes and explore the region. Even horse riding is available.
On the other hand a less enervating activity is present in the village as well. At the public parking space on the Benissa side is a petanque track. So get the balls rolling!
