Port of Alcossebre (Castellón, Region of Valencia)



Being so close to both the sea and the mountains is what gives this little town in Castellón its distinctive character. Between the Costa del Azahar and the inland Maestrat region lies Alcalá de Xivert-Alcossebre, a municipality where the sea and the mountains make for a landscape of contrasts.

Along this ten kilometre stretch of coastline you'll find five excellent beaches, as well as several unspoilt coves. These Mediterranean waters are ideal for water sports, such as sailing, fishing, diving, and many more. Alcossebre is also a good starting point for setting out to explore the Columbretes Islands Natural Park.

Numerous routes and paths cross the wide open natural space of Alocssebre’s Sierra de Irta mountains. Other interesting places are the L'Estany wetlands, and the dunes that stretch between the beaches of Carregador and La Romana. And the region has a varied cuisine too, with fresh fish and rice dishes being particularly well known.
