The 10 best beaches of Calpe, Alicante

Fine and white sandy beaches and turquoise coves characterise Calpe, one of the most famous towns on the Costa Blanca. It is also home to the Peñón d’Ifach, known as one of the seven Valencian wonders for the stylistic beauty that this natural reserve brings to the paradisiacal surroundings of its beaches.

Discover the beaches of Calpe

Calpe gives you the tranquillity that neighbouring towns such as Benidorm and Alicante lack. So much so that the beaches of Calpe are unique places to have fun, explore and disconnect in a group or individually.

Come and explore them with the colleagues of Victoria Cars.

Playa De la Fossa

Also known as the Levante beach, it is the main beach of Calpe and has a family and welcoming spirit. Located under the Peñón d’Ifach, it offers visitors the chance to enjoy the natural vegetation that characterises it.

A beach famous for its clear and calm waters, no doubt about it. An ideal place to spend a nice day with the family and children where you can swim. Not in vain, has been awarded with the Blue Flag for its amenities.

El Racó

The best pebble cove at the foot of the Peñón d’Ifach to enjoy snorkelling and dive to the bottom of the sea. This cove is the start of the “Princesa de Asturias” hiking route. A classic for our companions as we know that they escape there whenever they can.

Cala Gasparet

A remote beach between Calpe’s Puerto Blanco and Altea’s Campomanes port, which can only be reached by sea.

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.

Cala Calalga

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.

Cala Manzanera

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.

When you decide to spend your holidays on the Costa Blanca you cannot forget to include in your itinerary a route around the most prestigious coves and beaches of Calpe. You will feel incomplete if you do not enjoy every corner of these coves and beaches, their landscapes and sunsets, their crystal clear blue waters, their fine white sand on which to stroll at dusk. You can’t claim to have visited the paradisiacal coast of Calpe without getting to know the most intimate details that its beaches have to offer.
