Castellon: The new golf coast
Castellon is still a quite unknown area for European tourism, but in future Castellon will for sure become more popular.Castellon is located on the warm Spanish Mediterranean coast, where winter's mild climate attracts all those who suffer from northern Europe's long winter months.
But what hasCastellon to offer in the European tourists? The answer is golf, very pleasant climate and lower prices than in other popular areas along the Mediterranean coast.
Castellon province has a very pleasant Mediterranean climate, despite that the sunny winter days can be fewer than on Costa del Sol. On the other hand, this is an area where it rarely rains and where tourism is almost a novelty. Overall Castellon is an area to keep in mind and where international tourism will undoubtedly find an attractive option in the future.
Local authorities in Castellon are aware of what needs to be done to attract tourism, which is interesting: The idea is to offer golf 365 days a year!
The plans are already a reality and as many as 16 new golf courses are being built in Castellon, and will open shortly.
The advantage is mainly that the land is still cheap in Castellon, when compared with other more developed and traditional Spanish tourist areas of Costa Blanca, Costa Brava or Costa del Sol, which clearly facilitates the construction of many new golf courses and results in very attractive housing prices in an almost untouched area that is very similar to the Costa del Sol and Alicante before the international tourism started in Spain 40 years ago.
In Alcossebre the sea meets the mountains, and the mountains meets he sea.
Alcocebre - Alcossebre is located about 250 kilometers south of Barcelona, 100 kilometers north of Valencia and 250 kilometers from Alicante. There are three golf courses within a radius of 50 kilometers around Alcossebre.
Alcossebre welcomes the visitor with many small idyllic unspoiled beautiful bays and small beaches that hardly can find alike along the Mediterranean coast.
