One of the favourite beaches with visitors and locals alike, offering a view of the small island which shares its name with the beach: Isla de Olla with the imposing Peñón de Ifach in Calpe as its backdrop.
Cap Blanc Beach.
This delightful beach is the largest in the charming town of Altea, on the Costa Blanca. A real favourite with windsurfers because of the wind conditions, and the perfect beach for expert sailors.
Cap Blanc beach rises to the south, between Altea's Fishing Port and the beach of l'Albir, the beach into which it merges.
It is made up of golden sand alternating with fine gravel, which makes it a busier beach on summer's days.
Its crystal-clear turquoise blue waters make it the perfect place for any form of watersports, with windsurfing the key attraction thanks to the gentle breezes which sweep across the beach, while there is also a sailing school for those wishing to take their first steps in this fun activity.
Thanks to its size (some 1350 metres long and 19 metres wide) it offers plenty of space for a pleasant dip in the sea or a stroll with beautiful views stretching to the horizon.
Cap Blanc beach also boasts numerous amenities, including: toilets, showers, access to people with reduced mobility, sun lounger rental, boat rental, lifeguard and lookout post offering bathers greater safety and protection during their time at the beach.
