Javea is renowned for water sports and if you're in Javea and interested in kayaking from some of the most spectacular places imaginable, and alongside a coastline of unmatched beauty, well, you happen to be in the perfect place for it! Siesta Advisor's kayak excursions and tours in Javea allows you to visit some incredible places that are often completely isolated, hidden or simply unknown to the everyday adventurer... however with Siesta Advisor's kayak rental services, that's no longer an issue! We will provide you with a thorough introduction and explanation of your chosen coastline, and uncover all the little secrets you need to know for your adventure. In short, no matter what location you choose, kayaking in Javea allows you to fully immerse yourself with nature, kayaking besides ancient and Jurassic-like coastlines, snorkelling in transparent and crystalline waters filled with life, or exploring breath-taking caves of unimaginable beauty!
Here are some of your choices and what to expect!
First, you can visit a completely isolated and secret bay called Cala en Caló, where you can enjoy snorkelling with hundreds of fish, all whilst swimming through an indescribable and pristine underwater sea cave. This is one of Cala Granadella's most famous caves! This little beach is only accessible by sea (making this kayak tour from Granadella even more special); therefore it is very protected from human deterioration.
On this kayak excursion from Granadella you will also visit the amazing cave Cova del Llop Marí, a spectacular sea cave in which we can find a great variety of wildlife: starfish, octopuses, sea urchins. Additionally, the different coloured rocks which shape the cave depict all the natural geological processes occurring inside of it, being a great educational tool for those interested in rock formation geology! This cave in the Granadella Bay area is truly magical!
And finally, you are able to visit Cala Ambolo, a peaceful and beautiful beach with a nudist tradition where you can sunbathe and take amazing pictures. As Cala Ambolo is currently closed to the public, this kayak rental from Granadella gives you the unique opportunity to access this beach and enjoy a peaceful and yet another completely isolated and unspoiled bay!
Much like from your kayak excursions and tours from Granadella, Cala Portixol (also known as la barraca or Cala Portitxol) is incredible for kayaking! You will be able to visit a completely isolated bay called Cala el Pom which holds a secret or two... Not only is the water incredibly pristine for snorkelling with tremendous underwater rocks and structures, but there are also some little sea caves, and even an underground waterfall inside of a cave! Equally, this bay is only accessible by sea therefore it is very protected from human deterioration, and you will be able to enjoy some real privacy and beauty, escaping from your ordinary popular sandy beaches. Doing a kayak tour from Portixol is a must!
You'll then have the opportunity to visit the amazing Cap Negre cape, a spectacular and overwhelming rock formation that stands directly verticle above you, featuring some amazing colours that depict the natural geological processes occuring around Javea's coastline. This is only accessible via a kayak excursion from Portixol
And the highlight of this kayak tour from Portixol, the Portixol island, a peaceful but incredible place filled with natural wildlife and vegetation. On this island, you can visit a completely hidden and naturally-formed cave as well as our famous "blue lagoon", a little water pool separated from the sea by land, measuring ten meters in depth, and portraying some of the most prisrtine water conditions ever seen! Kayak Portixol is an absolute must for those wanting to do a kayak excursion in Javea.
This one is for those craving a little bit more of an adventure, and perhaps for those who do not have transport to get to Portixol or Granadella! From this kayak excursion, departing from Primer Montañar, Jávea, you can visit a completely isolated bay that is inaccessible to the public called Cala del Pope where you'll be able to do some snorkelling and relaxing.
You will also have the opportunity on this kayak tour from Javea to visit the amazing Cala Tango, another spectacular bay in which we can find a great variety of wildlife: starfish, octopuses, sea urchins. But the main reason people stop in Cala Tango is because it is renowned for being perfect for cliff jumping, a unique and adrenaline-driven sport where you jump from the heights of the rocks into the ocean! What makes this place ideal for cliff jumping is its unique slanted rock formation, meaning that there are small practice jumps for complete beginners, as well as jaw-dropping ones that will truly get your blood pumping! In short, this is perfect for those wishing for a bit more adrenaline and adventure!
Finally, this kayak excursion will take you to the famous natural wildlife reserve, San Antonio, where you can expect to find some of the most pristine and life-abundant sea conditions imaginable. It is said that snorkelling and kayaking near San Antonio is one of the most unique experiences in the entirety of Javea, as you can see life that is almost impossible to see anywhere else in Spain such as: dolphins, whales and sea horses (amongst all the other incredibly unique creatures that live there. So not only do you get to experience the exhilarating activity of cliff jumping, but you're also able to immerse yourself in one of the most vibrant snorkelling locations in the whole of Spain.

For reference, parking at Cala Granadella and Cala Portixol are significantly harder than parking and accessing our Cala Tango & San Antonio location! So if you want to enjoy a kayak excursion where you don't have to worry about parking or traffic, our Cala Tango tour is the one for you!
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.
