Oropesa Del Mar is a charming beach town in the shadow of the Oropesa Mountains of the Costa del Azahar in Spain. Known for its enchanting combination of fine sand beaches, delightful climate and fantastic gastronomy, a holiday rental property in Oropesa Del Mar offer the best of the Spanish seaside resorts without the huge crowds associated with more famous resorts.
Oropesa Del Mar is a historic town with some delightful monuments to visit. The King’s Tower is a fantastically unique military attraction, originally built in the 16th century, and the medieval town walls and castle are well worth exploring from any Oropesa Del Mar accommodation.
Of course, it is the glorious beaches of Oropesa Del Mar that really draw the crowds to Oropesa Del Mar holiday rentals. Beaches line the whole coastline north of the town, perfect for long, lazy days in the sun and a huge range of water sports too. Families are perfectly catered for by the beaches of La Concha, a bay with beautifully still waters safe for swimming, whilst the beaches of Amplaries and Morro de Gos are water sports and sunbathing havens for any beach lover. The coast of Oropesa Del Mar is known for its little bays, inlets and coves, all lined with fine sand, allowing you to find the perfect secluded spot on which to relax.
Windsurfing, sailing, water skiing and jet skiing trips are very easy to arrange from a self catering Oropesa Del Mar holiday home, and even if you have never tried deep sea fishing or scuba diving, trips and lessons are great fun, with expert tuition and guidance on hand. The warm waters of the Mediterranean, glorious climate and safe waters mean that you can enjoy almost any water sport from your Oropesa Del Mar holiday rental.
Having visited one of Oropesa Del Mar’s excellent restaurant, a walk out into the Oropesa Mountains or the Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca National Park especially, is the perfect way to both see a little of the natural area and walk enough calories to start eating again in the evening overlooking the sea.
There are plenty of cultural events to get involved with during your stay in a self catering Oropesa Del Mar villa, from the Festival of the Virgen de la Paciencia in October to the beach based celebrations of the night of San Juan on the 23rd June, with events lasting for a full week.
Just a few miles along the coast from an Oropesa Del Mar property is the ‘Jewel of the Spanish Mediterranean’, Alcossebre. The fantastically traditional appearance and atmosphere of Alcossebre has made it a real favourite with tourists and locals alike, and there is certainly no shortage of golf courses to play or restaurants in which to eat.
Oropesa Del Mar’s climate is kept remarkably stable by the mountain range that forms a shield from the worst weather, meaning that the long, hot summers see temperatures regularly reaching into the 30’s (˚C), and winters are far milder than along much of the coast.
When trying to reach a holiday rental property in Oropesa Del Mar, you must first take a flight to Valencia Airport (VLC).

From the airport, it is around 90km to your Oropesa Del Mar villa, but hire cars are readily available from the airport.
