The traditional Spanish village of Ador is situated on the Costa del Azahar which lies on the northern tip of the Costa Blanca. The area is almost completely covered with lush orange groves, with a stunning backdrop of the Safor Mountains. The region enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate, with refreshing sea breezes taking the edge off the hot Spanish summers.
Due to the golden sands that stretch all along this coastline, there are numerous beaches to choose from. Many have been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award as a result of both clean water and facilities available. Beaches are approximately 15 minutes’ drive away with a super choice of activities from wind or kite surfing, kayaking, canoeing, snorkelling, sailing or for the more relaxing lifestyle of sunbathing. In the summer months there are sunbeds and shades to hire and pop up bars along the coastline various beaches include, Gandia, Daimus, Miramar, Bellreguard and Piles. Some of these beaches have access for wheelchair users and most are populated by the Spanish. So if you are looking for a Spanish holiday or way of life this is a perfect location.
The main city of the Safor region is Gandia, a thriving, historical, coastal city, popular with Spanish tourists. Here you will find a variety of great shopping areas, street cafes and restaurants as well as range of nightlife in the nearby Gandia Playa.
Amenities: Post office, bars, butchers, restaurants, community swimming pool open all year around, doctors, dentist, tennis courts, bakers, butchers, chemist and in the neighbouring village of Palma de Gandia other amenities can be found.
Fabulous beaches along the coastline they say there are approximately 120km of BLUE FLAG BEACHES, which is great as there is a beach for everyone. The hustle and bustle of Gandia beaches lined with restaurants, gift shops, and pretty much everything you can think of. A great day for the family as the beaches are golden, the waters are shallow and if you have older children there is plenty for them to do too.
This is a very traditional Spanish holiday destination so don’t forget the dictionary if your Spanish is not brilliant. However, the other interesting thing about Gandia is they use a lot of Valenciano so if you see something on the menu that is not in the dictionary it could be another language.
If you are looking for a more cosmopolitan location, just head 20km south and you will find Denia.
