Cala El Racó

A small gravel cove closed at its south end by the north dock of Calpe’s port and located at the foot of the Peñon de Ifach. The paseo ecológico Princesa de Asturias eco trail begins here. It is suitable for diving and fishing.

At El Racó cove, you’ll find an underwater diving trail, the only one in the Valencian Community, with signal panels on buoys and informative signs about animal and plant species (high season only). You can learn even more by visiting the exhibition and audiovisual presentation at IMEDMAR headquarters, located in the old fish market. If you prefer, you can also go for a stroll and enjoy the sea views while on the Paseo Ecológico eco trail that starts at this cove.
