This delightful cove in Altea, with its clear water and unrivalled setting, lies on the municipal boundary of Altea itself, namely at Punta del Mascarat and Sierra de Bérnia.
El Portet Beach
This bay, sheltered by the Cap d’Or and some distance from the town centre of Moraira is seen as a little patch of heaven, the clarity and calm of its waters creating the sensation of swimming in a pool. It may be small, but it has enormous charm.
Cap d ‘Or provides the perfect shelter for Playa del Portet, a beach of fine sand and rock, and crystal-clear waters.
Small and horseshoe-shaped, it is one of the most attractive in Moraira, a wonderful setting for a peaceful dip in the sea, or any number of watersports, including sailing, kayaking, paddle surfing or diving, as the clarity of the water makes for unimpeded views of the wonderful seabed.
It should also be mentioned that this landmark beach also marks the starting point of an enjoyable hiking route, running from the Cap d'Or watchtower with its spectacular views of the whole coastline to the majestic Peñón de Ifach in Calpe.
