Cala del Tango Beach in Javea

Cala del Tango or Tango beach is a rocky cove located at the far end of the Javea port, at the base of Cape San Antonio. The pebble beach originally stretched across 50m, however due to a change in land formation, barely any of the old beach remains. Furthermore, the cove is currently closed to the public due to the potential of rock slides from the cliffs above.

What to do at Tango Beach?

There are no beach amenities located at Tango, so if you were to visit the cove, it wouldn’t be to play beach volleyball! In truth, Tango is now no more than the bones of the beach that it once was. However, Cala Tango does still have one trick up its sleeve, as it is also known for its rock jumping! Slightly further down from the remnants of the old cove are a selection of plateaus on the cliff face, all at varying heights. This makes it perfect for any would-be thrill-seekers to test their resolve and take the plunge into the crystal clear waters below!

Top Tips for Cala del Tango

BE CAREFUL – This beach in Javea has been closed to the public for bathing since 2014 and for good reason. The weather beaten cliffs overlooking the cove, are covered in both loose and completely detached rock, meaning there is potential for a rock slide at any given time. If you do decide to visit the beach, please do so with caution.

TAKE THE LEAP – I can say that from personal experience, although the jump does in fact appear intimidating, looking down into the Med. The feeling gained from a successful cliff jump is truly exhilarating and one that I would strongly recommend. Once again however, do proceed with caution!
