Jávea’s Cala Sardinera is very charming because it is not one of the best known and therefore is not so crowded but offers incredible natural beauty. As it is less easily accessible, many tourists opt for other beaches and so it is able to maintain a good part of its essence and remains an unspoilt beauty spot.

However, this cove has the typical characteristics of Mediterranean beaches. You can swim and snorkel in crystal-clear waters and the mild temperatures allow bathing almost any time of the year. Without a doubt, it is one of the great jewels of Jávea that you cannot miss.

To encourage you to take a trip to Cala Sardinera, in this article we will detail what you can find and why it is one of the favourite destinations for visitors to Jávea.

Visiting Cala Sardinera from the Sea

One of the differences of this cove is that access on foot is not easy. It is a 20 minute walk from the “Cruz de Portichol” down to the beach and an energetic hike back to the nearest road. Therefore, one of the most common ways of approaching it is from the sea. This way you can enjoy a less usual perspective, looking at the land instead of the horizon.

As this is a different kind of visit you can take the opportunity to plan an excursion and dedicate half a day or a whole day to it. You will get away from conventional beach tourism where you lay your towel on the sand and spend the hours between sunbathing and swimming.

Another advantage of choosing Cala Sardinera is that, being a little less accessible, it is rarely crowded, so you can enjoy a quieter day than usual even in high season.
