The coastline of Pilar de la Horadada is more than 4 kilometres long with very differing scenery. There are wide beaches of fine white sand in sharp contrast with the blue of the sea, and tiny rocky shelves which jut out into the sea and hide caves of golden sand, small and intimist.
The sea here is peaceful and only rarely otherwise. The beaches are safe as there are no steep slopes allowing even the smallest children to have a bath securely.
Furthermore, transparent waters and good visibility invite sub-aqua divers to go observe the variety of life sustained by the sandy sea-bed, interspersed with occasional rocks in which we can find the oceanic Posidonia (Mediterranean tapeweed), a plant that needs water to develop good quality, clean, transparent and well oxygenated; and taht serves to fix sand and avoid erosion protecting beaches from powerful waves. In addition, it is the place of living for many fish and shellfish.
The purity of the beaches in Pilar de la Horadada has made them to obtain the Blue Flag of the European Union, providing a guarantee of healthy surroundings. In addition, they offer a wide range of facilities and a good accessibility for disabled people.
On this year 2017, four of our beaches have again obtained a blue flag: Las Higuericas, El Conde, Jesuitas y Mil Palmeras. The blue flag is an award and also a system of certification of environmental quality bestowed yearly by the Foundation for Environmental Education to beaches and marinas meeting a series of environmental requirements and of facilities and equipment, a guarantee to enjoy healthy surroundings with tranquillity.
They are long, with fine white sand dunes covered with plants that bloom in spring, in high contrast with the little and intimate coves that can be found in Torre de la Horadada.
Do not forget to visit them at dawn or dusk ... they are quite a sight to see!
