Summer is coming and Villajoyosa is synonymous with the sea. This small corner of the Mediterranean has managed to preserve its landscape over the years, becoming a true paradise in which to enjoy the best crystalline waters in the province of Alicante. An example of this are the 5 beautiful postcard beaches at the foot of the Hotel Montiboli.
But we are not satisfied with just that. The coast of Alicante hides infinite and exclusive corners in which to enjoy the sea very close to the hotel. For this reason, below, we offer you our particular selection of the best coves and charming beaches to make your stay on the Costa Blanca unforgettable. Let's get started!
1 Racó del Conill beach (Villajoyosa)
At the northern end of Villajoyosa, the secluded beach of Racó del Conill is still a secret for most. And it is that this small and paradisiacal corner surrounded by pine trees is one of the most beautiful beaches in Alicante, but also one of the most unknown.
Although it can be reached by car, we recommend doing it by taking the Coastal Path, which runs along the cliffs from Playa del Torres. A path to enjoy each step, then refresh yourself when you reach the end in the crystal-clear waters of this beach brimming with charm and with a naturist atmosphere. Don't forget your diving goggles!
2 Cala d'Enmig (El Campello)
A few minutes south of Villajoyosa, is the Coveta Fumá, a residential area on the edge of the sea, dotted with numerous coves and very quiet beaches to escape the hustle and bustle on summer days.
Most of them are made of small stones, and although all of them are worth it, Cala d'Enmig stands out for its calm waters and fine sand. Flanked by two gentle cliffs, this sandy area has an intimate atmosphere that invites you to disconnect and enjoy the Mediterranean sun. Can you think of a better plan for a summer afternoon?
3 Cala Pinets beach (Benissa)
The Ecological Trail in Benissa runs along the coast of this popular municipality of the Marina Alta, offering countless places to bathe in the crystal- clear waters of its paradisiacal beaches.
Among them, we recommend Cala Pinets, a small beach of fine white sand surrounded by rocks and vegetation that offers incomparable views of the Peñón de Ifach. It is also an ideal place for diving, because in its waters you can see sea tomatoes, a type of anemone with a very intense red colour that owes its name to the popular Mediterranean vegetable. Have you ever heard of them?
4 Mascarat Beach (Altea)
Mascarat Beach is photogenic to the point of saying “oh my word it can't get more beuatiful” making this one of the most beautiful beaches in the province of Alicante. Just by reaching the viewpoint from which you access the beach, you will be captivated with the first impacting views. At your feet, the white sand with turquoise waters, and behind an arm of rock and pine trees that juts out into the sea, the immensity of the bay of Altea with the Sierra Helada as a backdrop. What a magnificent postcard!
The cliffs and the Mascarat gorge give their name to a beach full of atmosphere, that is the starting point for a great variety of nautical sports. More than enough reasons to include this visit on your beach route while you stay at the Hotel Montiboli.
5 Albir Beach (Alfaz del Pi)
Located at the foot of the Sierra Helada, Playa del Albir is one of the most fashionable places at the moment. Its natural beauty and its enviable microclimate are joined by the many gastrobars and nightclubs that have been inaugurated in recent years on the beachfront. It is the ideal place to enjoy the sunset!
Albir Beach is one of the largest in the entire province and is made up of millions of oval pebbles that form a true sea of stone dunes. Another of the great pleasures of this beach is being able to enjoy its panoramic views in which the Albir lighthouse that crowns Sierra Helada, the white old town of Altea that rises inland and the sinuous profile of the Peñón de Ifach compete to become the leading feature. Enviable!
Surely you have always wished for that dream holiday in some exotic paradise with crystal clear waters, white sand and vegetation right up to the seashore. But perhaps what you did not know is that the Costa Blanca can boast of some of the best beaches in the world with all the services at your fingertips. Discover every corner and immerse yourself in the Mediterranean!
