The end of our working life is definitely the beginning of a new stage in our life. Priorities change, the pace of life ceases to be dizzying to give way to everyday enjoyment and we no longer want landscapes encapsulated in oil canvases, but on the other side of the window. It is then that we begin to wonder where the best place to retire is, and the Costa Blanca appears first on the list. Fortunately, this area of Alicante has a robust proposal in terms of places to retire, both in quantity and quality.
Paradisiacal areas of the Costa Blanca to retire
We have selected the following locations based on their beauty, their great presence of nature mixed with their urbanity, their diversity of cultural and gastronomic offerings, and the quality of life they offer.
The neuralgic point of this town to the northeast of the Alicante coast, are its coves of water, which call for enjoying sea baths at all hours of the day. On the other hand, its medieval imprint, which we can appreciate while walking through its narrow streets whose stones become convex and whose roofs and walls built centuries ago take us back to other times, make Benissa a fantastic place to venture into the past. but with the flavors of the present, since its gastronomy has the freshness of the countryside and the intensity of the sea.
Walking through narrow streets in the light of streetlights with warm lights no longer has to be an image that you only enjoy in movies, because Denia makes it possible for you every time the sun goes down. The Les Roques neighborhood is one of the favorite corners for this kind of proposal.
Another excellent option for walks that we become adept at when we retire are its more than twenty kilometers of coastline, adorned with beaches with waters as pristine as crystal and fine sand.
And since retiring does not necessarily mean moving away from a life of lively celebrations, Denia has incredible proposals for you to celebrate, especially during the summer. Now that you have more time, there are no excuses to miss the night of San Juan, Las Fallas, the Bous a la Mar or the Moors and Christians.
With an annual climate of 18ºC, outdoor celebrations are more than welcome.
Along its thirteen kilometers of coastline, you will find beaches and coves that have become tourist attractions for the entire world. In the distance, the always surprising Peñón de Ifach emerges, flanked by its emblematic natural park.
The fishing life of the city is reflected in the Mural Mosaic, the most beautiful work of art by Gastón Castelló in Calpe. Another of the representative works of the city is the Torreón de la Peça, built to stop the constant pirate attacks that besieged Calpe in the 15th century.
If you like museums, then Calpe is your corner on the Costa Blanca to say goodbye to the stressful working life and welcome a new style of existence, since here you can stroll through the Museum of Collecting, located precisely in the tower of la Peça, in which those objects that have become true relics of the times that are no longer with us, but that are still breathed in the streets of Calpe, are exhibited.
From its exquisite old town to its gastronomy to delight, everything in Jávea is designed to live as intensely as if there were no tomorrow.
The walls that largely stopped pirate attacks are still standing on the streets of Jávea. Unlike the other towns that we have recommended, the predominant color in Jávea is the white of its little houses, which rest peacefully on the labyrinthine cobbled streets of the town, witness to the history of Alicante.
The buildings that dominate the landscape of Jávea are the Faro de la Nao, the Torre del Gerro and the Molinos de la Plana de Jávea, strategically built on that site to receive the southwest wind, which blows relentlessly over this Valencian region.
Modernity and medieval overtones come together to generate one of the most captivating attractions of Elche, a landscape full of large wild areas, such as the Clot or Las Salinas Natural Park.
One of the main attractions of Elche is its palm grove, which extends over five hundred hectares and is home to almost three hundred thousand palm trees. Have you noticed that you are a couple of firms away from living a few steps from the largest palm grove in Europe?
And that’s not all, but you would also be living in the place where they best know how to prepare crusted rice, the town’s main dish, which is added to a wide gastronomic proposal based on regional products.
