This new Fifth edition of our guidebook to walking on the Costa Blanca has been totally revised with new maps showing waypoints; free downloadable GPS tracks are also available for all the walks.
The Costa Blanca is ideal for countryside exploration all year round. Travel only a short distance inland, and the bustle of the resorts is left far behind. You find yourself surrounded by market gardens, orchards and orange groves, while the dark rugged silhouettes of the sierras beckon you close.
Wild flowers – from the humble daisy to the most exotic orchid – abound; the air is filled with the scent of fragrant herbs; birdsong drifts along on the breeze; mountain peaks dominate the skyline. The weather-beaten faces of villagers in the fields break into smiles as you pass by. All these images combine to create an ambience you will find irresistible.
Explore the Costa Blanca by car: the drives lead through fertile valleys smothered in blossom or sweet-scented fruit to delightful inland villages. Windmills, waterfalls and ‘snow wells’ feature among the picnic settings. But the rugged silhouettes of the area’s many sierras dominate this landscape – an irresistible attraction for trekkers.
This guide book can turn an ordinary holiday into a fantastic adventure. (GP, Amazon)
I am just back from a very good fortnight in Spain, much enhanced by a lot of use of your book. Many thanks for all you put into it. (MS, London)
Without your excellent contribution to the Landscapes Series, walking in the Costa Blanca hinterland would, for me, not have been possible. The quality of the printed volume is also much appreciated, especially the sewn binding. (RE, Sheffield)
