Alicante, thanks to its rocky coastline, offers different dream places in which snorkeling. Then we recommend five perfect places of the province in which to enjoy this water sport that every year has more followers.
The places of this municipality of the Marina Alta they are perfect for discovering the life of the seabed. Cala Blanca, Cala Sardinera, Cala Portitxol and Cala Granadella they are the best for snorkeling.
La Caleta, as the Cala Blanca, It is made up of two adjoining coves with easy access. It is located at the end of Playa del Segon Muntanyar and owes its name to the whitish color of the rocks on the adjacent cliffs.
The Cala Portitxol o Cala Barraca is also highly recommended for scuba diving and snorkelling. This sport can be enjoyed among the vegetation that makes its way to the sea. The tranquility of the water of the Cala Sardinera and the little mass of bathers facilitates the vision of the fish and the seabed in its waters.
La Cala Racó, located just below the Penyal d’Ifach, behind the port of Calp, it has easy access and crystal clear waters that make it suitable for diving from the surface and several meters deep.
We propose you two routes for snorkelling in this municipality. The Cap Negret Route It leaves the south face of the cape, it is about going around the rocky cape, which is called Negret. The bottom has a depth of 3 or 4 meters where you can also see, in addition to fish, octopuses. The Snorkel Route L´Olla It leaves from the beach that bears the same name. It has southeast orientation and clean waters, with good visibility. The bottom is rocky and very shallow, up to 2 or 3 meters.
Cala Almadrava and Cala Ximo. If you are near this municipality you can also practice snorkeling on its beaches. The Cala Almadrava is located east of the well-known Levante beach and under the Serra Gelada. The water is warm, clean and pleasant to dive.
On the north coast of Benidorm and at the foot of the Serra Gelada there is also a small cove called Uncle Ximo that combines fine sand and rocks to achieve crystal clear waters perfect for practicing this sport.
In El Campello we find a small isthmus where we can dive and go into the sea. The landscape allows you to enjoy very clean and bright backgrounds in the Baths of the Queen. When we are at the tip of the islet we can see a channel that serves as a door to the rocky pools communicated through small openings that form the Baños de la Reina. It has little depth.
These are some of the proposals to enjoy one of the star water sports in the waters of the province of Alicante. Enjoy them!
