Snorkelling, a classic

And just because it’s a classic doesn’t mean it’s any less fun. There are many places to snorkel in Alicante. From the long sandy beaches to the secluded coves, you can snorkel and find many surprises. Discover the seabed among the rocks and meadows of Posidonia oceanica. A huge variety of marine fauna hides in this area. A few minutes away from Cumbre del Sol you can find coves that seem to have been created specifically for snorkelling. We recommend the coves of Les Rotes and Cova Tallada (in Dénia). As well as the Barraca cove (Jávea) and Fossa beach (Calpe). If you want to stay closer to home, we suggest Moraig cove (Benitachell).  You can also visit some of Benissa’s coves such as Llobella, Advocat or Pinets. All of them are perfect for immersing yourself and enjoying this corner of the Costa Blanca.

Enjoy the peace and quiet

Maybe you feel like leaving your snorkelling gear at home, or you don’t feel like kayaking. If that’s that case, there’s nothing like enjoying the coastline from a boat. The perfect plan to discover the coastline by sea from Cumbre del Sol to the south of Alicante. Costa Blanca has a number of locations that are paradise. And which, of course, give the coves of Formentera or the sunsets in Ibiza a run for their money.

We think that Dénia is a good place to start, where you’ll find a natural cave like the Cova Tallada. Cabo de San Antonio (Jávea) is another good place to spot wildlife. This area is known for being frequented by sea turtles, dolphins, whales, and birds. In Jávea, you can also find the Bay of Portixoll, a classic for sailors in the area due to its scenic beauty. We cannot fail to mention the port of Moraira, one of the best located on the Costa Blanca. It is known above all for its superb location, sheltered by Cabo la Nao and Cabo Moraira, as well as the Peñón de Ifach. It’s also very close to the old town and has a wide range of restaurants and shopping areas.

The Mediterranean is like the deep sea waiting to be discovered, inside and out. Stay tuned for the next articles in our blog where we will bring you more plans and activities for summer.

The Muchoviaje magazine (Year V no. 61) has this month published an article dedicated to the Top 20 Best Beaches where you can hide this summer, a selection of beaches on the Iberian Peninsula which includes the Moraig Beach in Benitachell (Alicante).

The article reads: “Having lost our way through the curves of Cumbre del Sol, this treasure of the Mediterranean Sea appears at our feet as the road drops steeply with a 22% incline. A real gift of the Gods. The cove has a beach bar which is a delight during the week, hammocks to rent for anyone who finds it impossible to lie on pebbles, a mishmash of languages and big jumps from the rocks. But the long lasting memories will be of the translucent waters. “
