There are six main beaches in Santa Pola, which is siutated about 10 minutes south of Gran Alacant. The first you would come to from Gran Alacant is the Playa del Varadero, then Calas de Santiago Bernabeu. then Playa de Levante. Next comes the marina in Santa Pola and after that is the Gran Playa (or big beach), followed by Playa Lisa and finally Playa del Tamarit. All the beaches are sandy and all have Red Cross facilities and lifeguard towers with the Gran Playa and Playa de Levante both having wheelchair access as well. All the beaches are cleaned every night and are therefore spotlessly clean, as is the water.
If you are coming from Gran Alacant, The Levante Beach in Santa Pola is just before the Aquarium and is our favourite beach in Santa Pola. Starting just by the Pola Mar hotel, this superb 425m sandy beach has inflatables and pedalos (with or without slides) for hire as well as sunbeds and parasols for hire. There is also a large volleyball net on the beach plus some lovely beachfront cafes and restaurants.
Next along heading south is the Santa Pola Marina which has 234 berths,plus 195 car park places. Take a walk along the Marina where you will find some stylish restaurants and bars as well as international brands such as Burger King and Lizarran. With soft music playing whilst you eat and drink, the Marina is a lovely spot for a break from the beach!
The Gran Playa (big beach) of 1084m is the longest beach in Santa Pola and is another long expanse of sandy beach with more bars and restaurants as well as wheelchair access.
Next along is Playa Lisa, a very popular beach Running for some 553m, the sand here is darker and again, there are plenty of bars and restaurants as well as a windsurfing school and pedal boats.
The furthest beach away from Santa Pola town is Tamarit beach. Again, darker sand the beach is 665m long and with plenty of bars, restaurants and tourist shops.
