Jávea has become the second tourist destination in the Valencian Community with the highest number of places in flats. Over the years, tourism has grown in this town in Alicante thanks to its wonderful beaches and coves.
Recently coves have appeared as a result of meteorological phenomena and thanks to social networks these paradises have become more popular and have nothing to envy to the beaches of the Caribbean.
La Cala Paradís: After the storm comes the beauty
In 2020, the Valencian Community suffered one of the worst storms in living memory: the Gloria squall. As a result of its passage through the area, it created what is now known as Cala Paradís, whose landscape looks like something out of a film.
Thousands of tourists flock to this spot of crystal-clear waters and breathtaking views to enjoy their holidays. Moreover, the difficulty of access prevents the overcrowding that occurs in other places along the coast of Jávea.
Cala Paradís is located between Cap Negre and Punta Plana. To reach it and enjoy this window to the sea it is usually done by kayak or swimming.
It is a rocky beach, so it is essential to wear good footwear. The fauna found in the area makes it an essential destination for diving enthusiasts.
La Cala En Caló: A salt-water spring
This paradise has become the perfect setting for water sports such as paddle surfing and kayaking. It is also a perfect cove for snorkelling.
But that is not all. This area holds a secret. Behind a rocky outcrop, in the cliffs between Ambolo and Granadella, a cave is hidden.
As it is not accessible by land, the area is not very crowded. In fact, a couple of years ago it was not even marked on smart maps.
However, as it is hidden, care must be taken when accessing it and several factors must be taken into account. The main one is the state of the sea, as many people venture out and end up getting lost and being rescued. The most common thing to do is to hire an excursion to enjoy this Alicante paradise.
Cala Granadella: Turquoise and Emerald Colours
Located just over 10 kilometres to the south of Jávea, we find another of the wonders of the locality: the Granadella cove. It belongs to the green lung of the area: the Granadella Forest Park. One of the paradises of the Costa Blanca.
Unlike the other two mentioned above, this location is easily accessible by a small secondary road, with a parking area.
It is one of the best known beaches in the area, even in Spain, as the crystal clear water and turquoise tones make it unique in the area.
As it is easily accessible, it has become a crowded area. So we recommend going early in the morning to make room.
