COSTA BLANCA LIFESTYLE GUIDE


COSTA BLANCA LIFESTYLE GUIDE

THE COSTA BLANCA The Costa Blanca is blue. This is the colour of most of its 86 flags, demonstrating the quality of the waters of its 200 kilometres of coast. This makes Alicante the province with the most awards of this type in the whole of Spain. It has over 170 beaches and coves where the sun shines for over 300 days a year. Sandy, pebbled, hidden behind dunes, next to pine forests, under steep cliffs, urban and remote beaches, with calm and choppy waters. To the north, in the region of the Marina Alta, the mountain landscape approaches the shore to create unique cliffs and coves looking out onto the long sandy beaches of Calpe, Javea and Benissa.

In addition to the crystal clear waters you can enjoy on the coast, we must also highlight the quality of the services offered in this region, including an impressive hotel and catering industry with a wide range of bars and restaurants on the seafront for visitors to enjoy, as well as the endless number of activities for water sport lovers. Restaurants, terraces and bars from which to watch the sunset, accessible beaches, activities for children, windsurfing, sailing and scuba diving. You can also enjoy some time alone by listening to the waves, watching the calm water and going to places in which you can get lost.

02 Each life originates at a precise moment, and continues as a cultivated germ that reaches its final state by means of a specific process. This specific process in case of Restaurant BonAmb is formed by the tireless daily efforts of a very dedicated staff, with result that each day again beautiful products and local dishes can fill the table. This has been the objective from the first day they opened the doors on July 27 2011. The composition of the name (that literally translated means “Pleasant environment”) reflects their strive to not just let their guests enjoy the food and drinks, but to do so in an unbeatable setting. The history and origin of gastronomy have gone through the same evolution as mankind and its civilization. Because of that Restaurant BonAmb wants to resonate the tradition and the culinary history of the region of Jávea and the Marina Alta in her dishes to share this with our guests on the journey through history to the point where evolution has brought us today and to undertake together the culinary journey to the future.

03 Leading chef and tireless ambassador of Mediterranean gastronomy, Rafa Soler Atanet can be considered one of the main national representatives of haute cuisine. He started out under the mentoring of Martín Berasategui and his talent took him to the kitchens of the likes of Drolma de Barcelona, or L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Paris. An evolution that has had a profound effect on each of his creations, giving his dishes a modern and cosmopolitan touch. In his new adventure at Audrey’s Restaurant, Rafa experiments with local products while adding a global vision. This is how he achieves an original fusion between the sophisticated and the traditional that, without a doubt, will fill every table, every dish and every palate with new and delicious sensations CONTACT: Avda Juan Carlos I, 48 03710 Calpe (Alicante) telf +34 608 667 637 email: reservas@ar-hotels.com https://www.audreys.es
