I'd like some advice from the tripadvisor experts on the Northern Costa Blanca. We spent 3 weeks last summer in Javea and loved it. We both liked the climate on the Costa Blanca and would love to go back, but I'm wondering if we should try somewhere new and if these other resorts might be an option?
Due to a back problem, I have slight walking difficulties, so I need somewhere flat (Javea was perfect for this, and as we were between the Arenal and the Port, I was able (slowly!) to walk to both)
I don't know anything at all about Calpe, but it seems to get very good reviews. We did visit Denia for a day and absolutely loved the beach, but it seemed a bit spread out to allow me to walk to the different parts - though obviously, if I chose my area carefully, it might be a possibility.
Which of the resorts I would give me the same kind of experience as Javea? What we loved was the variety (the old town, the port and the arenal), the chiringuitos on the beach, the great choice of supermarkets near to us and the nice 'residential', spread-out feel of the accommodation, with no tour operator apartments. We did not like the pebble beaches, and the fact that the sunbeds on the Arenal were an absolute rip-off (18 euros per day for 2, and 50 cents to use the shower on the beach!)
So, do I go back to what I know I like (mostly!) or are there other resorts I haven't thought of, which tick all my boxes?
Over to TA! Thanks for all suggestions.
