This beach is a short drive out from Alicante and you can see the location of this beach on the map below, it is more to the NorthWest of the city.
This beach is accesible via the Tram that runs from Alicante and is a lovely little beach with palm trees, rocky areas and a small yacht port nearby. This beach is slightly hidden because it is surrounded by residential areas.
If you are driving from Alicante then you will need to take the Avinguda de la Vila Joiosa, which basically runs alongside the sea straight to this beach. There are parking facilities here. Or you can catch the bus (numbers 09, 21 and 22)
The length is approx 500 metres and the width approx 18 metres, so it is one of the medium sized beaches here.
Tourists are well catered for over the Summer season with the Red Cross present as are foot showers, toilets and parking. It has a lifeguard (including a watch tower) over Holy Week aswell as the Summer season.
You can see from the photos how beautiful, quiet and tranquil this beach is. Lovely for swimming, sunbathing and snorkelling and just enjoying the Alicante sunshine. This beach is also well known for its fishing
Historically this area served as the harbour for the Roman area called Lucentum and these ruins are available for you to visit them. Its name ŽAlbuferetaŽ comes from a previously existing ŽalbuferaŽ or small coastal lake that had its own harbour.
This beach leads on to the smaller Playa de la Almadraba
