Along the more than 10 km of coastline belonging to the Municipality of Alcalà de XivertAlcossebre, we discover a great diversity of beaches, from small solitary coves to large, fully accessible beaches with all the equipment and services one needs to rest and relax. Each and every beach has been awarded ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Quality and Environment certificates.

The center of Alcossebre has five blue flag beaches. This enclave of beaches in the foothills of the Sierra de Irta creates miniature paradises of sea and mountain, and their ecological value is quite distinct from that of the rest of the Mediterranean coast.

Playa Las Fuentes


One of the most emblematic beaches of Alcossebre; its characteristic feature is the presence of freshwater springs in the seabed, which is why it is of special ecological significance.

It is a beach of fine sand, 400 m long and 40 m wide, located north of the Las Fuentes Marina, and it owes its name to the springs of fresh water that flow from the seabed to the sand. The water comes from an aquifer which formed in the Jurassic, with some of this water reaching the sea through the springs of Las Fuentes.

This beach has been awarded the Blue Flag and is equipped with all types of services: first aid, toilets, showers and footbaths, walkways, litter bins, areas for children and sports, and rental of pedal-boats, sunshades and hammocks, etc.


Playa Carregador



The largest of our beaches, Playa Carregador is located across from the main town center of Alcossebre. It features fine sand, and is 850 m long and 70 m wide. This Accessible Beach has a Blue Flag and offers all types of services for people with reduced mobility. It is equipped with lifeguards, showers and footbaths, walkways, toilets, litter bins, playgrounds for children, etc.


DUNES

At the southern end of the beach there is an area of dunes of significant ecological importance.



SAILING CLUB


Here we find the Sailing club, where you can rent pedal-boats, sunshades and hammocks, trampolines and paddle surf equipment.

Playa Romana


The ecological richness of this beach is remarkable. It is located to the south of a system of dunes of significant ecological importance and contains a unique beauty derived from the vegetation that presides over it. It features a wooden boardwalk which starts at a path running from Playa Carregador and which was put in place in order to preserve the flora and fauna of these lands.

This beach of fine sand is one of the more extensive beaches of the municipality: 500 m long and 40 m wide.

It has been awarded the Blue Flag for its distinctive quality, and it offers a wide range of services: first aid, showers and footbaths, walkways, toilets, litter bins, children's games and sports, etc.

As an Accessible Beach, it is also equipped with every type of service for people with reduced mobility. Here there is a rental service for paddle surf, sunshades and hammocks.

Playa del Moro



Tucked in between two rocky outcrops, this beach of fine sand is 300 m long and 30 m wide. It flies a Blue Flag and has lifeguards, showers and footbaths, walkways, toilets and litter bins.



Tres Playas


These three small coves of fine sand and pebbles together form a stretch of beach which is bounded to the north and south by rocky areas. They feature walkways, showers and footbaths, and litter bins.

Playa Manyetes


Playa Manyetes, also known as Tropicana, is a broad swath of beach of fine sand, 400 m long and 35 m wide. This Blue Flag beach is fairly quiet, and provides lifeguards, toilets, showers and footbaths, walkways, litter bins, as well as the rental of paddle boats, sunshades and hammocks.

Playa Serradal



Out of all the beaches, Playa Serradal has retained its natural beauty the most. This noteworthy pebble beach located to the south of Playa Manyetes is of special natural value: there is a small, semi-submerged delta where the southern end of the beach meets the mouth of the San Miguel River. It includes walkways and litter bins; and at the southern end, a stretch of beach has been enabled for pets.

FALL IN LOVE WITH THE BEACHES AND COVES OF ALCOSSEBRE

Cala Blanca


This small cove, about 30 m long and 10 m wide, is composed of fine sand and pebbles. Because it is situated in a non-developed, natural setting, access to the beach is a bit difficult. As such, it is considered a virgin beach, a small wild space where you can find tranquility and experience direct contact with nature.

Cala Mundina and Cala Ribamar



These two small coves, featuring fine sand and pebbles, are found within the Sierra de Irta Natural Park and are also considered natural, or virgin, beaches. Access is difficult, and they are bounded to the north and south by rocky areas.
Their conservation is of vital importance; therefore, they must be treated with the greatest respect. After all, this type of beach is increasingly rare.
