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 Negret Beach
One of the longest beaches of the coastal section of Altea. Crystal-clear and unpolluted water making for a pleasant day at the beach and a refreshing dip in the sea, with views of the ever-present Peñón de Ifach in Calpe.
This beautiful sand and pebble beach located in the north of the wonderful town of Altea is one of the most popular with the local residents.
Two kilometres of beach with high quality water and only moderately busy, making it a peaceful spot in the summer season to listen to the relaxing ebb and flow raking over the pebbles, rather than the bustle of the town.
The beach also boasts the attractions of the mouth of the River Algar, where ducks and swans will often be seen, and where there is also a verdant pathway to stroll along, as well as family picnic areas.
Meanwhile, in the summer season it has temporary facilities offering lounger rental for bathers' comfort and relaxation, and also pedalos for a really fun day out. It is the perfect setting for numerous watersports, including diving, surfing, windsurfing, or the latest fashionable thrill, kitesurfing.
And in the event that hunger pangs strike, the bars and the "Arrecife" beach lounge, a pleasantly family-run business, serve up delicious sardines and wonderful paellas right there by the shore.
