Cliff jumping and coasteering are growing in popularity across the globe with thrill seekers heading to natural cliffs to jump off into deep waters. When you think of Alicante it may not strike you as one of the best locations to go cliff jumping in Spain. Well, unknown so many, Alicante is home to a little gem known as Tabarca Island which is home to some of the best cliff jumping spots in Spain.
1. Tabarca Island
The Island of Tabarca is the only inhabited island in the Valencia region, and is situated opposite Alicante and can even been seen from Guardamar. The island is a popular tourist destination for day trips for snorkeling, walking and trying the local sea food. But one of the best things about Tabarca for thrill seekers are the perfect cliffs surrounding the island!
The best way to get to Tabarca island is by boat. You can hop on a ferry from Santa Pola (recommended) or Alicante city. The ferry costs 20 Euros for a return and run approximately every half an hour from 9 AM - 9 PM during the summer months.
Once on the Island, the best places to go cliff jumping have been highlighted with red circles below on the map of Tabarca. The spots are a short walk from where you get dropped off by the ferry.
*It is very important you check the depth before jumping as the tides can make the water level vary so jump with caution.
Our A Guide to Guardamar team took a trip over to the island from Guardamar late last summer. You can easily take a bus from Guardamar bus station to Santa Pola to get the ferry. Take a look below at the video from the trip!
