“Worth the effort”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

This cave is worth the trek from Les Rotes. There are two routes, up over the hill, past the tower, or around the side of the hill.
The paths are very basic, but marked, not for the feeble or faint hearted, but well worth the effort.
We made the mistake of going on a weekend, and there were a lot of Spanish there enjoying the day off and the swimming during the hot weather, a bit crowded.
The snorkeling is fantastic, as well as the swimming

“Very Nice Food and Place to Sit”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The Tapas was good and the staff extremely friendly. This place is in the main street Loreto and reminds you of being in the back streets of Barcelona. We went back twice!

“See a Sea Cave without a Boat”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Cova Tallada (Carved Cave) is a large (400m3) cave at the water’s edge where Tosca stone was cut for local building in Javea and Denia.
It is accessed via two paths from the top of the cliffs above and next to it. The climb down is not for the faint hearted as in places you have to hold onto some strategically placed chains to help clamber over/down/up some rocks. Once down at sea level you have to climb over some rocks, some of which may be wet if the sea is other than calm and then you enter the cave which is almost a circular hole in the rock. This is an ideal spot to take a silhouette photograph of someone with you entering the cave with a bright blue sky background. There are several pools inside the cave which can be slippery but they allow you access to several other arches leading to the sea and for the more adventurous with a swimming costume can access and ride the sea rapids between the cave and the large rock outside of it depending on the sea conditions. Another photo opportunity is outside of the cave where there is a natural stone bridge with a small pool under it. Allow an hour for the climb down to the cave, have a torch, swimming costume, snorkel and mask, towel, camera, a drink, snack and preferably a back pack to carry it all in. Don’t be put off by the last sentence, we have been there and had to wait for local school parties to move on so as to be able to take photos. If you search on line you will find route maps and far better descriptions of the cave.
