WHERE IS OLIVA?
Oliva is at the far north of the Costa Blanca coast where it meets the Costa del Azahar. Oliva is located in the region of Valencia. The city of Valencia with its airport is only an hour away to the north. To the south, Alicante airport is about an hour away. To get to Oliva you can either fly into Alicante airport or Valencia airport. Once at the airport you have a range of different airport transfer options to Oliva including private shuttle buses, taxis or Oliva car hire.
The main motorway (A7 autoroute) that runs the length of Spain's eastern coast passes close by Oliva so road access is excellent. Junction 61.
OLIVA BEACHES (PLAYA)
The key reasons for Oliva's tourism popularity are the beaches. The wide beach of Oliva stretches for over 10km which means you can always escape other people if you are prepared to walk far enough. It means Oliva's beaches do not feel crowded unlike other Costa Blanca beaches (such as Javea, Moraira and Benidorm).
The other big difference with Oliva's beaches is the fact they are very natural with sand dunes giving a real feel of nature and are unspoilt. Oliva beach has lovely golden white sand. There are three main beaches, these are: Terranova-Burguera Playa, Pau Pi Playa and the Aigua Blanca Playa (beach).
The backdrops to Oliva's beaches are many apartments - thankfully low-rise. Oliva is full of tourists in summer but has a very deserted feel in winter when most of these apartments which are just used as holiday homes for the Spanish sit empty and shuttered up. Oliva has plenty of good restaurants, bars and shops. Main town is 2km away and is open all year round.
Needless to say most types of water sports are possible in Oliva. Especially because the winds on Oliva beach are often strong. Ideal for windsurfing and kite surfing which can be hired on the beach.
THE TOWN OF OLIVA
The actual town of Oliva is set back from Oliva Playa (beach). So on one hand you have the beach area with its many apartments frequented in season by Spanish and mostly empty in winter and then you have the historic old town of Oliva with its year-round activity and lack of any sign of tourism. Oliva itself is a small town surrounded by fields, mainly orange groves. So it is a town for which agriculture is of major importance (as well of course as tourism).
Oliva is a small town; nevertheless it has a lovely feel in the old town with many old buildings of interest. Noteworthy buildings are the remains of the Moorish castle, the two churches with their pretty blue domed roofs which are lit up at night.
Of course Oliva has many fiestas throughout the year, the most famous fiesta in Oliva probably being the Moors and Christian's fiesta in July.
The promenade or pasai in Oliva is the heart of the town, this is lined with trees and there are wide open spaces with benches where people sit in the evening and chat, there is a play area for children and of course many cafes and restaurants where you can sit out in the open air. This area also has the indoor market where you can buy the freshest local vegetables, fruits, meats and breads.
The town of Oliva retains its Spanish feel and has not so far been blighted by modern development. Two attractive blue domed churches (Santa Maria and Sant Roc) and a maze of winding cobbled streets. The market in Oliva is held every Friday.
GOLF IN OLIVA - OLIVA GOLF
Another key selling point for tourism in Oliva is the 18-hole golf course called Oliva Nova Golf and Country Club which is in a great setting close to the coast and beach and designed by world famous Spanish golfer Seve Ballesteros. The golf course is very well rated by golfers and enables you to play golf while enjoying a great beach holiday.
Fiestas Holidays in Oliva
Oliva has many fiestas and traditional celebrations, San Juan which is a Valencian celebration and the only night of the year you are allowed a bonfire on the beach with the family is spectacular. At midnight for luck and to release you of sins you jump 3 times over the fire and then the first 3 waves coming onto shore.
Easter, Christmas and various other dates throughout the year you may see a bull run, parades with brass bands, carry of the Virgin Madonna parties in the main paseo there is never a shortage of celebrations. Traditional Spanish town with traditional values.
