Short stop

Drove here, parked up. Path from the top down close to sea. Path way steep, must be fairly fit. Well worth the walk down. Stunning views one of my favorite

It took me about an hour to bike from Javea to this beach. I did get a little lost at the end trying to find my way down, And when I say down, it is steeply down and not easy for many. You then have to park your bike and walk down more and across many rocks to get to... More

The beach is closed due to rock fall currently. The walk down is steep but made easier by the provision of good steps however at the bottom it is very rocky and a difficult walk to the beach area which I was unable to do. I would recommend very sturdy footwear and a good le el of fitness. This beach... More

Just getting to this cove can be a task and, in August 2016, there was a 'beach closed' sign there (looked like it had been there for years). Not surprising. The beach is difficult to get to and has limited space. It's rocky and has no services whatsoever. Unsuitable for kids. Great for snorkeling but you can do that any... More

This beach is ideal for snorkeling but be aware, yes you have to carry your gear a way but its worth it once down on the beach, yes your photographs may have the odd exhibitionist trying to get into them and yes you have to take any/all of any refreshments you want to consume. The warning is that should you... More

A very difficult beach to get to and technically it is shut at the moment but the long walk is worth doing to experience the snorkelling and swimming. It's really lovely and idyllic. We couldn't believe it when we saw penguins! We'll definitely go again. I loved that it was mostly spanish locals too. A stony beach so take shoes... More

Amazing small beach beautiful views. This is a nudist beach however more people where clothed then naked so the choice is yours. Very out the way and quite a trek to get to with a bit of walking but definitely worth it.

Gorgeous, unspoiled beach which is well worth the trek it takes, to get to. The beach itself is pebbly, but there are rock outcrops on the South end of the beach which make for excellent sun-spots.
