La Cala de la Granadella in Jávea is at number 1 in our Top 10 Beaches in Alicante. It has been chosen ‘Best Beach of Spain’ several times and is, therefore, a beach that you must have seen at least once!
Best beach in Spain
Playa de la Granadella has been voted ‘Spain’s best beach’ two times in succession – successively in 20126 and 2018 – on the website of a Spanish television channel. Not surprising, because it is located in a picturesque horseshoe-shaped bay with clear turquoise water, surrounded by jagged rocks and pine trees. A picture!

A natural swimming pool
The beach consists of beautiful white round boulders and gravel, but from a few meters in the water, swimmers get a soft sandy bottom under their feet, which transforms this cala into a natural swimming pool, also great for divers.
Protected by cliffs
Because the bay is embraced by cliff slopes, the water is wonderfully calm and beautiful for swimming.
A snorkel and diving paradise
This rustic cala is the perfect place for divers or snorkelers who like to admire seagrass fields and colorful fish in crystal clear waters. For divers, there are several beautiful routes, including an easy route directly accessible from the beach and less than 10 meters deep.
You will also see the fish swimming from a boat or kayak!
A fantastic microclimate
The special microclimate makes it one of the best spots in the entire coastline for soft sea breezes, while it is embraced by high cliff slopes. A fresh wind (but never disturbingly hard) is a nice relief in the warm summer months! The water also stays nice and fresh.
