You'll find Castellón on the Spanish Mediterranean coast in the north of the Region of Valencia, with over 120 kilometres of coastline and some of the loveliest beaches in the area.
There are a total of 16 coastal towns and villages to explore, some as famous as Benicàssim, Benicarló and Oropesa del Mar.
Castellón has eight nature reserves. Two of them have undeveloped coastlines: the Sierra de Irta nature reserve (with coastal sites like Peñíscola and Alcalà de Xivert-Alcossebre) and the Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca nature reserve. Highly recommended (and particularly for scuba-diving) is a visit to the Islas Columbretes nature and marine reserve. Water sports
The various yacht clubs, sailing schools and marinas in Castelló all offer the opportunity to enjoy sailing, scuba diving and kayaking, as well as renting waterbikes. Discover the interior
Although you might not think so from the beach, Castellón is a very mountainous area. It is well worth venturing into the interior to explore mediaeval towns such as Morella.
