The bay of Les Bassetes cove has a small breakwater that protects from the swell coming from the north and northwest. There is a sandy cove about 20m long and 2m wide. Often you can see many leaves of Posidonia oceanica on it, which indicates the water quality of this coastal area and that on days with little swell we will be able to enjoy crystal clear waters. We can access the sea from the cove and also from the breakwater that even has a pool ladder.

There are two restaurants, the Bassetes Coral Beach and the Oceana Club with a large terrace and several tables on the jetty, so we can have a drink, a snack or eat Mediterranean cuisine enjoying the beautiful views of the coast, with the Peñón de Ifach in the background.

It is an ideal place for snorkeling for its clear waters and beautiful seabed, with a combination of posidonia meadow, rock and sand. It is also an ideal place to start kayaking and paddle surfing routes as we have good access to the sea from the cove and breakwater.

There is a small marina and a Yacht Club where you can do all kinds of sailing, catamaran, paddle surfing and windsurfing activities. If we do not have material we can rent it here. There is also a diving center, les Bassetes Dive Center, with which you can do baptisms, courses and dives, and surely they know the best places to dive.

Here runs the beautiful Ecological Path, which runs along the coast from Calpe to almost reach Moraira, where we will pass through several coves and enjoy wonderful places with the ever-present Mediterranean Sea always in sight. We have a small parking lot but in high season it will be difficult to get parking.
