Spain´s hottest spot for Winter surfing- The Costa Blanca.

Spain´s hottest spot for Winter surfing- The Costa Blanca.
Hundreds of surfers enjoyed some January sun on the Costa Blanca.


The Costa Blanca is becoming a popular surfing spot.

With its thousands of miles of coastline, Spain has many happening surf sports to enjoy.

Mundaka, Razo, Rodiles and Sopelana are now joined by the Costa Blanca as popular destinations for bunches of young surf enthusiasts enjoying the waves.

The La Zenia hotel is seeing huge surge in not just waves but surf tourist too!

It comes as a surprise to many, but the Mediterranean along the Costa Blanca throws up some pretty good swell.

Often, especially from October to April, you´ll find a cyclone from the Strait of Gibraltar or storm out at sea kick things off.  When it does…. text messages circulate and 100 vans show up at La Zenia beach. It happens regularly just between Playa Flamenca and the La Zenia hotel.

The region is of course known for golf, relaxing beach strolls, soft white sand, food and good times. Now we can add to that list the surf and this may the complete tourist region in Spain.

The waves in the Mediterranean, due to such a small fetch are mostly generated from swell. A few miles south of La Zenia and the Mar Menor barely registers a ripple. During the summer too, the water is often glass-like. That is perfect for Stand-up Paddle boarding, safe for families, good for fishing but far from perfect for surfers.

If you surf, and you like warn sunny days, plus waves that do not break too hard, get over to the Costa Blanca to try it out.

Maybe if you are coming to Spain on an Inspection trip with SpanishHomes.Online? Just ask an we can incorporate some surfing into your viewing tour!!!

Water tourism is popular all along the Costa Blanca and always has been. Boating, jet skis, snorkeling, kayaking and diving in particular. The diving is especially fun around the Los Nietos region near to La Manga.

The Cabo Roig marina as well as providing boat hire, also offers sailing school during the summer.
