From Cabo de San Antonio (Jávea) to Cala del Moraig, here is a route along the Alicante coast between capes, islets, coves and beaches. Perfect for a single day trip but also for the weekend that is almost here.
Start point, Cabo San Antonio: 160 m high cliffs with fantastic views can be shown on the way
About 400 meters before the lighthouse of Cap Sant Antoni, this viewpoint invites on the right with its wooden balustrades facing Xàbia and its vast inlet. Hikers can access it after climbing five kilometers on the PR-CV 355 trail that starts from the port cove of Tangó, or the Pope; It is the path that the lighthouse keeper used to lower his offspring to school. At the end San Antonio must be understood as an extension of the natural park of the Montgó massif and its marine reserve. Two microrreservas of floras subsist: one on the north cliff and another on l’Illot de la Mona. We can not leave without paying tribute to the lighthouse that rises higher between Girona and Almería (174 meters of light from water). To leeward the pitas predominate around the old signal traffic light. To this end you will also have the best otedero from which to guess Ibiza, so much better in these autumnal dates.
Denia.net says that “at the foot of the cliffs remains the San Antonio Marine Reserve, a protected area of special environmental, scientific and ecological interest and importance. At Cabo de San Antonio, the water below seems to be immense with a deeper blue than you have ever seen before. On a clear day, you can even see the island of Ibiza in the horizon. Enjoy this beautiful view for a while and then go on towards Jávea-Xàbia town. On the way to it is worth visiting the old windmills which are an apprecied part of the heritage of this area.”
Endpoint, Cala del Moraig, a gulf with perfectly transparent waters
At the foot of the Puig Llorença massif, between cliffs and impressive geological formations, is this secluded cove of gravel and transparent waters. The exceptional enclave and the color of its waters give it a unique charm. The quality of the waters, the environment and the services offered have been certified by the Blue Flag certification. Besides its attractiveness for the bath, next to it are impressive geological formations such as the Falla del Moraig and the Cova dels Arcs, a beautiful aquatic cave that is the outlet to the sea of an underground river. A treasure for lovers of scuba diving.
