The Cova dels Arcs is located at the entrance of Cala Moraig. This cave carved by the sea is one of the best examples of drainage of a karstic system that has gone from continental or coastal conditions to underwater.

 

Currently, it is an emblematic symbol on the Valencian coast, since from inside, on days of calm sea, you can see the entrance of light by two large arches and a hole on the top. This cavity was initially developed in subareas conditions and flooded during the last rise of the sea level (approx. 60.000 years ago). Since then the Cova dels Arcs has been subjected to the erosive action of the waves and the dissolution of marine water on limestone rocks, which have given rise to the current presence of this unique cave.
