Once there you can enjoy a unique experience thanks to the Real Club Naútico de Calpe and the Club Naútico of Puerto Blanco, two options with which you can sail and even swim to the shore.
Cala Del Morelló
One of the most special because it preserves the Roman remains of Baños de la Reina. These ruins were formerly used as fish farms and thermal baths, which is why it is shallow. It is a perfect beach for amateurs and easy to access via the Infanta Elena promenade.
Playa Del Arenal Bol
Calpe’s largest beach is on the opposite side of the Peñón d’Ifach next to a promenade with all the necessary services. This beach will give you blankets of fine white sand and crystal clear blue waters, a perfect place for a family holiday.
This cove between cliff rocks is a beach full of underwater vegetation for diving and snorkelling enthusiasts. If you dive here you can see anemones embedded in the rocks and even swordfish and sea bream hidden in its nooks and crannies. It is a quiet beach, but it can sometimes produce waves due to its shape.
Brightly coloured and geometrically perfect beach in the marina of Puerto Blanco with architectural structures designed by Ricardo Bofill. The power of this bay is its ability to contrast with the tranquillity that the area reflects.
However, if you wish to spend a day in this cove, remember to take the necessary items with you, because it has no services beyond public toilets.
Cala Les Bassetes
From this quiet and cosy beach you can see the Peñón d’Ifach and the Levante beach in the distance. It is the perfect cove for diving and snorkelling on the Costa Blanca.
The peculiarity of this area is the peace transmitted by the sound of the waves breaking against the rocks and the easy access it offers through the promenade of Benissa that will lead you to smaller coves.
Despite not having many services, the traditional restaurant that surrounds this area stands out.
Playa Del Cantal Roig
This is a small cove in Calpe close to the fishing port. It is a very popular area for fish auctions and tasting of local food offered live in the shops surrounding the cove. It is the perfect place for a family holiday on the Costa Blanca.
Cala Del Mallorquí
El Mallorquí could be considered a private cove of crystalline waters with views of the Peñón d’Ifach, which you can access through the Voramar path. On the Costa Blanca it is considered a perfect option to enjoy as a couple due to the intimacy of this cove located between Port Les Bassetes and Cala Calalga.
