One of the best ideas in the Mediterranean Coast is to practice water sports. In this area, Santa Pola and Arenales beaches are excellent locations to do it. Both are popular stopping points to practice these sports thanks to the geographical location, the weather and the prevailing winds across the bay.
“Parres Watersports” offers their services (kitesurf, windsurf, surf, sup, small sailboats, kayaking) between Arenales del Sol beach and Carabassi beach, and in La Gola beach (where you can see a bunker from the Civil War). You can hire equipment and take clases.
You can only reach La Gola beach by a short walking from the Tamarit beach, and you have a highly recommended stroll by the shore from La Gola to Pinet beach.
There is other option in Club Windsurf Santa Pola (Avenida Blasco Ibañez 55). Their web is http://www.windsurfsantapola.com
The kitesurf spots of Santa Pola fit well for any level of kitesurfers because there are not big waves. In El Altet and San Juan spots there are a lot of waves, so they are considered as spots for kitesurfers of higher level. The winds on both spots are stable all year round, but the El Altet spot is situated on a beach for holidaymakers which makes it difficult to navigate in summer.
|SUP (Stand Up Paddle)|
The calm days when there are no waves you can enjoy kayaking to explore the bay.
