To be able to access the Portixol, Javea, your starting location for your Cova dels Orguens kayak excrusions, you will have to take the Portixol road, which is perfectly indicated all the way from the heart of Javea, and it takes around 15 to 20 minutes to reach the beach from Javea city centre. However, it is very advisable to use a GPS to avoid getting lost, as after all, it is a remote location and for those who do not know the area, the roads might be a little bit confusing and disorientating. For those coming with GPS, simply write in “Carrer la Barraca 89, Jávea” and it should take you directly to Potixol beach, Javea.

The Mediterranean is blessed with very calm water conditions due to its enclosed nature. Additionally, Cala del Portixol & Cova dels Orguens are in a bay itself, meaning that even when the open sea is rough, we are protected and sheltered! We are fortunate enough to have some of the best conditions on the Costa Blanca, with crystal-flat waters almost every single day!

In the morning people can enjoy the privacy and the tranquillity of the sea, at midday those who tend to get cold in the sea can enjoy the refreshing sunlight warming your body whilst you float around, and in the afternoon you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets and prepare yourself for a calm and refreshing night with the family or friends! Additionally, kayaking in Javea can be done all-year! Javea boasts with having around 330 sunny days a year, meaning that even winter temperatures can reach 25oc! Let’s not forget, out of season there is significantly reduced tourism, meaning that you will be able to enjoy more private and intimate tours with your friends and family, often having a guide just to yourself!
To be able to access the Portixol beach, you will have to take the Portixol road, which is perfectly indicated all the way from the heart of Javea, and it takes around 15 to 20 minutes to reach the beach from Javea city centre. However, it is very advisable to use a GPS to avoid getting lost, as after all, it is a remote location and for those who do not know the area, the roads might be a little bit confusing and disorientating. For those coming with GPS, simply write in “Carrer la Barraca 89, Jávea” and it should take you directly to Potixol beach, Javea.
Portixol beach itself has a big car park with capacity for a dozen cars. However, this space fills up super quickly during the summer months, therefore, to find a parking space it is necessary to arrive very early to the beach. As well, you can find some parking on the road going up from Portixol. Normally both car parks are already full by 10:00 am in the months of July and August. If you arrive and do not find any parking, we advise you not to leave the car on areas where it is not allowed to park such as on the sides of the narrow road (as you will see that many people do this). This is because the police goes down to Portixol very frequently and fines all of those who do now respect the parking areas, and even toes away cars in high summer season. Thus, if there is no parking, do not risk it, even if you see other people are doing it!
It should also be noted that in the summer months the beach is subject to a control limiting the number of visitors, so if the beach is full when you arrive, you will not be allowed to enter. Thus, it is best to get up early if you want to visit Portixol. Currently, no reservation system has been established to enter Portixol
We highly recommend doing the excursion in swimwear and/or clothes that you don’t mind getting wet as kayaking is a water-based activity. Appropriate footwear (not flip-flop, not slippers, closed beach shoes) is also important, not only for your safety, but also for your personal comfort when disembarking on small, beautiful pebbly beaches. One or two towels are also advisable.
Drinking water is essential as to avoid dehydration throughout the tour, and a few snacks (sandwiches, fruits, chocolate bars, nuts, sweets) to help with energy.
