Cabo de La Nao (Javea)

Characteristics

Description

The Cabo de La Nao (100 m) is eastern tip of Alicante. It's the end of Vanence bay and a shift from the coast . It's located between N Costa del Azahar and S Costa Blanca.

A light is shown from a tower with a dwelling, 20m high, standing on the cape. A radiobeacon is situated at the light. It's front of Formentera island (at Baleares). In very rugged cliffs, flowing into the sea at its feet, you can find small coves, with caves and islets. This is a popular place for the practice of underwater fishing and water sports.

A large rock lies at its foot, near a cave.

Le Cap de la Nao (100 m) est le pic le plus à l'E de la province d'Alicante. Il marque la fin de la baie de Valence et un changement d'orientation de la côte. Il se trouve à la rencontre de la Costa del Azahar au nord et de la Costa Blanca au sud.

On trouve, à son extrémité, un phare qui pointe en direction de l'île de Formentera (aux Baléares). Dans les falaises très accidentées, qui se jettent dans la mer à ses pieds, on peut trouver des petites criques, avec des grottes et des îlots. C'est un endroit très prisé pour la pratique de la pêche sous-marine et des sports nautiques.

Un grand rocher s'étend à ses pieds près d'une grotte.
