The Cova Tallada trail in Denia
The Cova Tallada trail leads to a cave under the cliffs of Cabo de San Antonio, in Denia. It is a cave that was used as a quarry in the past.
The hiking trail to Cova Tallada is easy, short (1km, less than 1h) and marked as PR-CV355.
Two ways to follow this trail to Cova Tallada: from the end of Les Rotes Road, following the path to the cave, going along the edges of the cliffs; or going past the Torre del Gerro, a trail that also leads to Cova Tallada.
At the end of the trail you will find a rope that helps on the final descent, and Cova Tallada can also be accessed by kayak.
Some advice before going on the Cova Tallada trail:
- Bathing is allowed in this area.
- To go deeper in the cave, bringing a torch is necessary.
- Mountain boots and nonslipping shoes are necessary: the floor is slippery and partially flooded depending on the tide.
- Cova Tallada is a family hiking trail. However, on the final stretch the youngest children will need some help.
