Must-see coves on your road trip through Alicante
Your rental car is the best option for exploring the most exclusive coves and beaches in this province during the summer months. They’re located in difficult-to-reach wooded areas, and there aren’t public transport lines.
Travel Alicante’s most beautiful beaches and coves from north to south. Let's get started:
Cala del Moraig in Jávea
We start in the northernmost part of the Costa Blanca, specifically in Jávea, one of the trendiest destinations on the coast. This beautiful cove between cliffs has seen its popularity grow in recent years to the point of having limited capacity. The crystal clear waters shimmer in one of the wildest spots along the coast. It has a parking area and is adapted for people with reduced mobility.
Mascarat Beach in Altea
This white sand beach is located at the north end of the Luis Campomanes Marina. The characteristic pebbles of Altea´s coast abound, and its seabed is ideal for scuba diving.
Spend the day on this peaceful beach and enjoy the views of the natural landscape while tasting local cuisine at the beach bars in the area.
Cala Tio Ximo in Benidorm
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city in this small paradise along the Costa Blanca. A small and intimate pebble cove, it’s nestled between cliffs and is just a stone’s throw from Playa de Levante. Despite its size, the cove is visited every summer by thousands of tourists who are drawn in by the irresistible crystal clear waters.
Your Centauro rental car will be the best sidekick to get you there. You can pick it up at our Benidorm office and reach the cove’s parking area in just 5 minutes.
Coveta Fuma in El Campello
The next stop on the road trip along Alicante’s beaches is El Campello and its more than 12 miles of coastline. Heading north from the Club Náutico, there are small coves such as Coveta Fuma that appear between the residential areas.
This cove can only be accessed on foot and is a small spot featuring a rocky bottom that reaches 20 to 23 feet in depth. Get your goggles and water shoes ready to discover lush marine vegetation and the large number of fish that it attracts.
Cala Ferris in Torrevieja
And here we reach the south on our road trip along the Costa Blanca. Cala Ferris is surrounded by small dunes, palm trees and crystal clear waters. Here, you can enjoy a relaxing swim while listening to the sounds of birds. Diving lovers will enjoy this setting surrounded by fish in a beautiful ecosystem. Pick up your rental car at our Torrevieja office and reach Cala Ferris in just 15 minutes.
