SECCIONES / SECTION
As its name suggests, this beach is a paradise, with good access, parking, lifeguards, beach umbrellas and sun loungers for a day of total relaxation. If you like water sports, you can also rent a paddle surf or kayak right on the beach.
Bol Nou Beach
You’ll love it when you see the cliff that separates the beaches, there’s a beach bar if you want to have a snack and watch a beautiful sunset, there’s a lifeguard post, and, of course, don’t forget to wear your goggles and some footwear, as it’s a pebble beach.
To access this beach, you’ll have to go south of Villajoyosa. It has pedestrian access and is suitable for naturism, as is Cala Racó de Conill. Don’t forget to pack your goggles in your suitcase as you might see some small fish.
Cala Racó de Conill
This cove is formed by two small coves of stones. It is naturist and perfect for diving and seeing the seabed, as its waters are crystal clear and have a beautiful turquoise colour. There’s also a beach bar where you can have lunch or dinner and enjoy this beautiful cove. It’s only 5 kilometres from the campsite.
Centro Beach in Villajoyosa
This beach is the jewel in the crown. You’ll find the colourful houses right behind it, meaning you can get some great photos. It’s 1.2 kilometres long, sandy and has a lifeguard service. The perfect option to go with the family and enjoy a typical Villajoyosa rice dish. This beach has a walkway for those with reduced mobility.
El Xarco dog-friendly beach
Some of us like to go to the beach with our dog, and in Villajoyosa you can take your pet to El Xarco beach, one of the few dog-friendly beaches in the Valencia region.
The beach does have some rules to follow if you’re going with your pet. You have to respect the passage place on the shore of 6 meters; if the dog is classified as dangerous, it has to wear a muzzle; you must carry a veterinary passport with you; and it is mandatory to pick up any dog litter.
This beach is located next to the Estudiantes and Tio Roig beaches. As it’s a pebble beach, don’t forget appropriate footwear so you can enter the water safely, and don’t forget your snorkel either, as at the southern end of the beach you can find a great route. On this beach you’ll find the Chiringuito Nuevo Varadero, where you can enjoy lunch or dinner overlooking the sea.
El Torres Beach
This beach is very close to the campsite, only 5 minutes away! It’s surrounded by a large eucalyptus tree grove, access to it is very easy, and there’s a large parking area, but don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes as this is a stony beach.
Nearby you’ll find the Tower of San Josep or the Tower of Hercules, a Roman funerary tower.
