7 dog-friendly beaches on the Costa Blanca
Caleta dels Gossets (Santa Pola)
The “Caleta dels Gossets” is located next to the Cabo de Santa Pola Natural Park. It is one of the most popular dog-friendly beaches in the province of Alicante. This small cove was inaugurated six years ago and is an ideal spot to spend the day with your family and pets. This natural beach has basic services and has both stones and sand. Furthermore, it is freely accessible with your canine at any time of the year, with no time restrictions.
Cala del Rocío (Torrevieja)
Torrevieja also has a beach for dogs called La Cala del Rocío. This small beach comprising both sand and rocks is perfect for taking a dip with your canine. It is located in a beautiful natural setting and nearby there is an dirt road which is perfect for going for a stroll together. This cove can be accessed both by car and on foot. If you are going to visit this beach in your Lara Cars rental car, we recommend that you park next to the children’s area of the Nautilus Restaurant and from there walk to the beach. Have a great day with your canine friend!
Agua Amarga Beach (Alicante)
The provincial capital also has a super doggy beach ideal for meeting new dogs and possible summer loves, who knows? Playa Agua Amarga also has parasols, hooks for leads, bins and platforms with disposable containers to use as food or water bowls. There is even a beach bar in summer with food and drink specifically for dogs! What a great day out!
El Xarco (Villajoyosa)
If you are looking for a large dog-friendly beach on the Costa Blanca, where you can go with your rental car and your beloved pet, then the El Xarco cove in Villajoyosa is undoubtedly the one for you. It is a relatively new addition and somewhat difficult to access but it is worth it. It is a rocky and gravelly beach, ideal for those who dislike accumulating more sand in their flip-flops and paws than necessary. In addition, near the mouth of the river there is a dog park to round off your day.
Mar y Montaña Beach(Altea)
The beautiful Altea also has a dog-friendly beach – one of the most famous on the Costa Blanca. You can also take full advantage of having your Lara Cars rental car to visit a local restaurant and try a delicious rice dish. This beach is found close to Villa Gadea and, for the most skittish dogs, it is worth noting that its waters are usually very calm.
Les Urques (Calpe)
Calpe, apart from being a beautiful town, also looks out for our pets. Its dog-friendly beach is located in Cala Les Urques, more specifically near the famous Puerto Blanco. It is famous for its large rocks, which your dog can have fun jumping between in search of crabs and other surprises. Just bear in mind that this beach is accessed via a footpath and so you will have to leave your Lara Cars rental car a few metres away.
Escollera Beach (Denia)
This is one of the most recent beaches of the Costa Blanca to incorporate a dedicated area for dogs. Start up your rental car and head to the north of Denia, next to the port area. The Escollera beach has 100 metres set aside for dogs. Of course, here as on any beach, remember to take plenty of food and especially water to prevent your dog from suffering in the intense Mediterranean heat.
This summer, rent a car and enjoy the best dog-friendly beaches along the Costa Blanca. Your dog will be the spitting image of happiness, which is sure to rub off on you, right?
