La Font D’En Carros Town self-explanatory really these are properties located in the town and as the town is nestled on the bottom of a mountain there are no real steep inclines so getting around is much easier that other towns.
Campo/ Countryside these are properties in the countryside normally surrounded by orange groves usually all on one level with views up to the mountains rather than down to the valley. Property is fairly cheap but there are very strict rules as to what you can and cannot do.
INCREDIBLE. Not over crowded like most of the Costa Blanca Beaches. Miles and miles of BLUE FLAG BEACHES, beaches for everyone, quiet and secluded or the opposite with water sports such as kitesurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, banana boats, jet skis and much more it all depends what you like to do. The main thing is the beaches are never over crowded which is why they are so popular with the Spanish.
The waters are shallow so great for families with young children, no sudden drops like the Atlantic or other rough seas.
Along the beaches there are nature reserves in the sand dunes and most plants are protected like most of the coastline in Valencia.
Various coffee shops, bars, restaurants, gift shops, supermarkets all thriving in the summer months some of these are accessible from the beaches depending on where you go. Near the shops are the life guards and Red Cross centre.
