I have to admit – I am guilty of committing to spontaneous decision for weekend getaways, regardless of going out of Spain to other countries or simply taking a train hour away to another pueblo. What can I say? The wanderlust is REAL. In this particular case, it only took a hour of googling, two hours of convincing, making a check list and some collective packing here and there, a day later I was on my way. I had the opportunity to travel to Peñíscola, a beautiful beach town/province located in the Valencia community. The breathtaking ocean view of Costa del Azahar was what made it feels instantly a Mediterranean holiday.
La Casa de las Conchas – House of Seashells
Dios Esta Bien hostel.
The hostel we chose for the stay had the coziest terrace space, tastiest breakfast, and quite possibly one of the best coffee I’ve ever had in Spain thus far. Centrally located and walking distance from everything Peniscola has to provide. The international hosts are extremely friendly and helpful with anything we needed. I highly recommend this place if you are ever visiting this town!
For a quick fix of cocktail or fruity alcohol beverages, make sure to head down to MUVA Beach for an impeccable view and relax atompshere for a sit & sip.
Hope this post inspired you to take a small weekend trip away from the tedious ordinary routine that is life, and find enjoyment within details and a brand new view.
