Oliva Beaches. Oliva Port / Marina.
All the main beaches have been adapted for handicapped access, with long slatted wood paths leading from the road (in some cases through the dunes) down towards the sea.
Playa Pau Pi, Oliva
The beach of Pau Pi is traditionally the oldest and most central beach in Oliva. Pau Pi is where the first residential buildings sprung up. Thankfully in keeping with the rest of Olivas beach areas, the houses are very low-rise with only two floors. Pau Pi beach has lots of market stalls, restaurants, ice cream parlours and small bars including beach bars.
What is significant about Oliva Pau Pi beach is that unlike the other Oliva beaches it does not have the sand dunes because the houses have been built right up to the sand of the beach whereas at the other Oliva beaches the houses are behind the high sand dunes and so they are much less noticeable and discreet. However Pau Pi beach is the busiest and has the most facilities so you much decide what you are looking for and at least you have different choices.
The Pau Pi beach is fine golden sand. To the left (north) known as Alfonso el Magnanimo you have the marina called Club Nautica, a very pretty spot with the boats and yachts, there is a walkway with a restaurant and bars. There are facilities for the handicapped, volleyball nets and also some beach football pitches with goals which is a nice touch.
More than one kilometre of open fine sand beach located in a residential urban environment. It has two stretches of beach adapted with all necessary services for people with reduced mobility. One of this stretches is at Alfonso el Magnánimo, next to the yacht port, and the other in front of Plaza de Europa, on the southern extreme bordering on the beach Aigües Blanques.
Playa Aigua Blanca, Oliva
The Aigua Blanca beach with natural dunes lies between two rivers, the mouth of the Alfadalí and the Bullent. On this beach they where you can have a drink in the shade without losing sight of the sea. It is not crowded even in the ideal spot for the practice of water-sports.
Immediately when you walk onto Aigua Blanca beach you have the first beach bar and just to the right is a good childrens play area as well as volleyball nets. Dunes and Mediterranean vegetation shape the characteristic image of this semi-urban beach of fine sand and clean water, being almost three kilometres long and reaching El Riuet dels Gorgs.
Running along to the right of Aigua Blanca beach is a walkway or promenade which is also very good for cyclists and roller skaters.
