Moraig Cove, Benitatxell
SOURCE: Comunitat Valenciana
At the foot of the Puig Llorença massif is this secluded cove of gravel and transparent waters. The quality of the waters, the environment and the services offered have been endorsed by the Blue Flag certification and the special mention for the lifeguard service by the Adeac Foundation in 2014. In addition to its attraction for bathing, next to it there are impressive geological formations such as the Moraig Fault and the Cova dels Arcs, a beautiful aquatic cave that is the outlet to the sea of an underground river.
El Portet Cove, Moraira
SOURCE: Comunitat Valenciana
The point of Moraira provides the perfect shelter for this beautiful cove of sand and rock, which is one of the most attractive in the municipality. A small inlet in the shape of a shell, secluded and with crystal clear waters, it is a magnificent setting for a quiet swim.
There are several bars around to have a drink with fantastic views of the Peñón de Ifach.
El Roscó Cove, Calpe
Cala del Racó, one of the most beautiful coves in Calpe, is a small cove located at the foot of the Peñón de Ifach, in the port area of Calpe. Composed of pebbles, this 70 metre long beach is quite popular with the locals. Cala del Racó is also known as one of the best coves in the Comunitat Valenciana for snorkelling and, if you like diving, here you will also find the only underwater trail in the Comunitat with marker buoys and signs informing you about the species that inhabit these waters. If, on the other hand, you prefer a walk with a view of underwater activities, the Princesa de Asturias ecological itinerary begins in this very cove.
Ambolo Cove, Xàbia
A nudist and unspoilt cove with crystal-clear waters near Cabo de la Nao.
It owes its name to the watchtower built in the 16th century, whose function was to watch over and defend the sea from pirate attacks, just like the other watchtower in Xàbia located in the Portitxol area, both located on private land. On its southernmost slope we find the island of Descubridor. Near the cove is the Ambolo viewpoint.
It is 300 m long (approx.).
This beach is currently closed due to the risk of landslides.
The Cove, Dénia
Considered by many to be the best nudist beach in Spain, also known as Cala d’Aigua Dolç is a rocky area of just over 100 metres. Its great advantage lies in the beauty of its waters, of beautiful turquoise tones.
La Cala is a discreet beach with a naturist character from where you have excellent views of the Montgó. It is also classified as a “Site of Community Interest”, as a micro-reserve of flora on the seabed.
Pinets Cove, Benissa
Wild and secluded, this small cove of pebbles is perfect for disconnecting. From here you can take an excursion to the area called Mar Morta i Roques Negres (Dead Sea and Black Rocks). The first one owes its name to a small tongue of sea of little level and protected by rocks that protect it from the waves. Next to it we have Les Roques Negres, which are rock formations with ferruginous components that give it a singular ochre-reddish hue. Sometimes you can see sea tomatoes in this cove, a type of very intense red anemones, which resemble tomatoes when they close. On the shore of the cove it is common to see remains of leaves and fragments of posidonia and its fruits, also called sea olives.
Racó del Conill, la Vila Joiosa
El Racó del Conill is a small cove of pebbles and sand with a high nudist tradition in La Vila Joiosa (Alicante), a corner just over 150 metres long with transparent waters that has free parking and a beach bar in the area, in summer, where there is a grove of trees in the cove.
A rustic cove with crystal-clear waters, ideal for scuba diving, located in the southernmost area of Xàbia.
It can be reached via a road of the same name, which is taken from the Cabo de la Nao road. From the Granadella road itself you can access the viewpoint and from the cove’s car park the Granadella Castle hiking route begins.
It has a high level of occupation and is 160 m long.
Annually awarded with the blue flag.
La Solsida, Altea
On the cliffs of the north coast of Altea there are beautiful coves that are difficult to access. La Solsida is a secluded natural cove much appreciated by nudists. To reach it you have to walk a long way along a rocky path. In this cove it is common to find marine fauna that is not seen in other beaches.
Cap Blanc cove, Moraira
A hidden cove with complicated access, but with great charm for its landscape and its views make it a quiet cove with little occupation and a great attraction for diving and fishing.
