Oropesa

One of the more developed resorts on the Costa Del Azahar is the beach town of Oropesa. It has several fine beaches, including La Concha (the shell) and Morre de Go.

The many unspoilt beach coves have classic views of the Mediterranean and have a reputation as clean and safe waters. Beside these there is a modern yacht harbour with around 700 berths offering full marina facilities and water sports activities.

With its outstanding strategic location on the shores of the Mediterranean, Oropesa has proved attractive to the many cultures that have lived on the peninsula.

The Iberian relics of Oropesa La Vella, and Roman remains found in the region confirm it as being archaelogically significant

Other local towns worthy of a visit include Vinarôs, Càlig, Benicarló, Sant Mateu, PeñIscola and Alcossebre
