Four is the number of beaches located in L’Hospitalet de l’Infant and La Vall de Llors: L’Arenal, La Punta del Riu, El Torn, and L’Almadrava. Each of them is characterised by its length, thin sands, and crystal clear water and is awarded an EMA environment quality certificate. The first three beaches also have a Blue Flag. Apart from the labels and available services, the district’s beaches stand out as places where to relax and break the routine, sunbathe, have a swim in the sea, build sandcastles and play with kids; or to play sun and sand sports (volleyball, football, etc.) and water sports (there’s a wide range). Because these beaches are very close to forests and mountains, they’re very luring for a nice walk, or a lovely seaside hike. Come over and try it all!
While following these itineraries, snorkel fans can observe the most typical species of Neptune grass in plantations that are considered as priority protection habitats by the European Union. An also you can explore the sea sand and rock bottom, where you can find lots of plants and animals, like anemones, fanworms, wrasses, red stars, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, sea breams, etc.
The itineraries are located at the L’Arenal beach, in the Bea cove (Cala Bea) and at the L’Almadrava beach. These itineraries are equipped with underwater panels marked with colour buoys, where you can find information and photos of the most typical species that you can freely identify if you wear your goggles and your snorkel. Plus, during certain periods of the summer, you can join guided tours of these underwater routes with specialised guides.
To join such a guided visit, you’ll need to contact the Tourism Office (Estació Street, Nº1, L’Hospitalet de l’Infant, tel. 977 82 33 28). We invite you to discover the sea bottom with these underwater itineraries and to read the sea via the information panels!
