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.
La Solsida Cove
Located in the beautiful town of Altea, close to the Mar y Montaña harbour in the Galera del Mar is this incredible and unspoiled clove where you can enjoy splendid isolation and revel in the peace and quiet of the sea.
La Solsida is a small, semi-wild beach located in the north of the borough of Altea.
The crystal-clear water is perfect for a pleasant dip or an exploration of the intriguing seabed, and is also a particularly popular beach with nudists, as the practice is permitted here.
Given its composition and relatively difficult access it is far from busy, even in the hottest months of the summer, allowing bathers to feel they are the first to set foot in this delightful spot. Access is via a path which runs along the foot of high cliffs.
The views are incredible, a real treat which is further heightened if you wait for sunset or sunrise, a natural splendour well worth a visit.
It should be pointed out that the Cala de La Solsida is a small cove without any amenities, showers or restaurants, making it instead the perfect spot to escape from the bustle of bigger beaches.
