Stand up paddle board's (also known as SUP boards!) are the new, modern and eco-friendly way to get out on the water in Javea and have some tremendous amounts of fun! Paddling boarding in Javea has grown enormously in popularity over the past few years and it is the perfect activity for all groups and ages. However, paddle boarding in Javea comes with a warning: paddle boarding and learning how to perfect it can be seriously addictive and could be the beginning of a new lifelong passion... I have already fallen victim to paddle boarding, jumping on board (pun intended!) ever chance I get, and who knows, you may be next!
Javea is fortunate enough to have one of the most diverse coastlines on the entire Costa Blanca, combining some flat shorelines with mountainous and Jurassic-looking cliff faces. Also, Javea's coastline is made up of bays, meaning that external sea conditions rarely affect the sea, always keeping it smooth and crystal clear - providing a real transparent spectacle below your feet when paddle boarding! So in short, Javea is perfect for renting paddle boards and going for adventures and exploring, where you can even take a snorkel mask or two with you and see all that lays below your feet! This is an absolute must when in Javea.
Javea is renowned for water sports and if you're in Javea and interested in paddle boarding 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! Paddle boarding in Javea allows you to visit some incredible places that are often completely isolated, hidden or simply unknown to the everyday adventurer... however with our paddle boarding tours that's no longer an issue!

In short, no matter what location you choose from below, paddle boarding in Javea allows you to fully immerse yourself with nature, paddling 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! When you decide, you can let us know after your reservation via email or phone!
First, you can visit a completely isolated and secret bay called Cala en Caló (more info here), where you can enjoy snorkelling with hundreds of fish, all whilst swimming through an indescribable and pristine underwater sea cave. This little beach is only accessible by sea (making this paddle board tour from Granadella even more special); therefore it is very protected from human deterioration.
On this paddle board tour from Granadella you will also visit the amazing 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!
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 paddle board excursion 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 paddle board excursion in Granadella, 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 caves, and even an underground waterfall there! 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 paddle board 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.
And the highlight of this paddle board excursion from Portixol, the Portitxol 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!
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 tour, 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 paddle board excursion 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 paddle board excursion in Javea 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 paddle boarding 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.

We highly recommend doing the paddle board excursion in swimwear and/or clothes that you don’t mind getting wet as paddle boarding 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.
