Playa de la Roda Beach

Following the beach of Cap de Negret, arises one of the best beaches of Altea, the beach of La Roda which extends to the port, thus enjoying an approximate length of 1400 meters. Formed by fine sand, gravel and very small stones, the sea that bathes the Roda beach boasts of being quite calm, although the depth of the water as we enter begins to be considerable. As for its facilities it has several areas to practice water sports, in addition to a promenade where several restaurants and bars are located where you can take a break. In addition it also has a parking 30 meters from the beach in case we need to park the car, although the beach is quite close to the town center so it may not be necessary, for all this and much more Roda beach has the distinction of the Blue Flag.

Cap Blanch beach

The beach of Cap Blanch is another beach of great extension, in this case has a little more than a kilometer long approximately, its sand is similar to that of the surrounding beaches mixing fine sand with soft gravel. The beach is located between the Albir beach and the Club Nautico de Altea, right next to it is a chiringuito beach, which has parking and where we can book to eat and rest a little of the sun.  As for its facilities the beach itself already has a parking, which is usually difficult to find a place in the seasons of better weather; we will also have the possibility of renting canoes and other equipment for water sports. Of course with all these facilities could not leave the beach of Cap de Blanch without its Blue Flag quality certification.
