What to do in Oliva
To start your visit, head to the beach! Oliva has more than eight kilometres of fine sand beaches with clear, shallow waters. Here, you can spend time on the beaches of Terranova, Pau-Pi, Aigua Blanca, Rabdells, Aigua Morta or Les Deveses, all of which are characterized by their high quality and unmatched natural beauty. While there, catch Oliva’s dunes, the presence of which is only part of the reason Oliva’s beaches have been recognized with the distinctive "Blue Flag.”
If you want to see more nature, head to the Marjal Pego-Oliva Natural Park, where an old lagoon is only separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a wide stretch of dunes. This colourful, beautiful landscape is just a short distance from another of the destination’s natural sites, Font Salada, an idyllic spring that somehow manages to keep the same temperature all year long. Are you ready to see them both up close?
If you are a lover of sports, the different landscapes in Oliva will let you do what you love most, whether that’s horseback riding, golf, water sports, hiking, cycling, fishing, karting or something else.
Before ending your trip, we recommend that you take the time to explore Oliva’s historic centre. See the old Moorish Raval—it’s home to the well-known Calle de la Hoz and El Tosalet del Doix, where you’ll find a viewpoint with dreamy, panoramic vistas of the surrounding landscapes. Walk through the streets of Oliva and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time. There’s nothing not charming about adorable Oliva.
