BEACHES

The Peniscola North Beach is the nearest beach to the old town. A large and attractive beach in a spectacular setting with the Papa Luna Castle in the background. Five kilometres of fine sand make this the most important beach in the area.

One of the main features of the beach is the excellent quality lifeguard facilities, with teams and signage all along its five kilometres. It is also equipped with access walkways, infrastructure for people with reduced mobility, telephones, cleaning services, waste bins, and hammock and parasol rental.

You can enjoy lovely walks on the wide promenade that borders the beach, line with palm trees, while contemplating the shape of the Templar Castle that crowns the City in the Sea. At Peñiscola North beach you can also enjoy sports like sailing, canoeing, and water pedaloes and jets.

Thanks to the equipment owned by the beach, it has been granted the following certifications: Blue flag, “Q” flag, from the Spanish Institute for Quality Tourism, the “green” certification from the AENOR company and the Valencian Tourism Agency ‘Qualitur’ flag. All of this demonstrates the high quality of the Peñíscola north beach.

At the foot of the city walls and next to the fishing port, we find the South Beach, well sheltered from storms. The South Beach is known for its fine sand along its nearly 300m length and 35m breadth.

Enjoying a tour of the south promenade as the boats arrive in the port with their daily catch, is one of the most magnificent views you can experience in this area. You can also enjoy magnificent views of the Castle while you are sunbathing on the beach.

There is a surveillance and rescue service, and basic services such as showers and children’s playground and beach volleyball facilities. The Benicarló-Peñíscola Marine resort has facilities for sailing, diving, windsurfing or canoeing with any one of a number of water sports companies.
