Crystal-clear water, white sand and dream landscapes. The beaches of the Costa Blanca are an oasis where you can lose yourself and escape from routine by taking long walks in the sun, playing water sports or just enjoying your surroundings.
Located to the north of Calpe, this beach is also known as La Fossa and is one of the most popular in the vicinity.
Its characteristic golden sands contrasts with its clean transparent waters that are just begging you to dive in! The imposing Peñón de Ifach, or Rock of Ifac dominates the southern reach of this bay, which offers an extensive coastal walk, with lots of options for entertainment and relaxation. A haven of peace and tranquillity barely a kilometre long that delights all who visit it.
This beach is judged one of the best in Spain, thanks to its crystal-clear waters which are ideal for scuba diving
The 200 metre-reach of the Cala de la Granadella is surrounded by pines and native vegetation, giving it a rustic air. Not just the white boulders and pebbles forming its shoreline, but also the cliffs from which you can view the vast swath of the Mediterranean are just some of the many attractions of the Cala de Jávea.
Palms dot the landscape of this lively Calpe beach, one of the most popular during the summer.
The beach of Arenal-Bol is the perfect spot to relax for some sunbathing or to take a dip in its calm waters. Within a stone's throw of the Paseo Marítimo you have many leisure activities, one of its main attractions. Being close to Calpe's town centre means there are always throngs of people, so the atmosphere is fun and entertaining.
This tiny cove near the village of Benitachell is a real jewel of the coast
It is located at the bottom of the Puig Llorença massif, sheltered by cliffs. Being so small, it is tricky to find a spot on this white pebble beach which you can only reach on foot. Cala del Moraig also has a cultural and sporting claim, since it harbours the Cova dels Arcs, which has a subterranean river, ideal for snorkelling or simply a visit.
Many years of history are embedded in Calpe's coast, especially in Cala Morelló, where you'll find the famous Baños de la Reina (Queen's Baths)
This archaeological site dates from the Roman era, the ancient remains of a thermal bathhouse that was located here. To take a dip alongside these historical ruins, with the Rock of Ifach as a backdrop is an experience that anyone visiting Calpe should try.
About 20 kilometres from Calpe is Moraira, a small fishing village set on one of the best inlets on the Costa Blanca
Portet Beach is very narrow, but also shallow so its waters are always calm, making it the perfect destination for those who love the sea. Its shell-shaped curve, as well as the village's marine environment are its pre-eminent features.
This gravel cove situated next to Calpe's fishing port is perfect, not only for swimming but also for scuba diving.
In its waters you'll find the only underwater route in the Valencian Community, marked by buoys and posters telling you all about the animal and plant species you will encounter. Those who prefer to stroll on the surface can enjoy the long walk along the eco-friendly Paseo Princesa de Asturias which stretches from the cove to the base of the Peñón de Ifach (Rock of Ifach).
