Portixol beach is famously known for its unique fishermen houses with white facades and blue doors, something you have surely seen on Instagram! In other words, these little Greek-looking houses can be found everywhere on social media, and now represent not only this spectacular beach, but symbolize the true Mediterranean lifestyle Javea is renowned for. The little houses, named “barracas” in Spanish, also give this beach the secondary name that it often goes by – La Barraca Beach! But let’s not get confused, so we’ll stick to Portixol.
Portixol, Javea, is surrounded by tall cliffs and nature (much like Granadella beach!), meaning that it is equally protected and sheltered! However, this beach is full of history and mystery, places only accessible by kayak or paddle board. If you are looking for one of the best beaches in Javea, you may have found exactly what you’re looking for. Portixol, a small history and mystery-packed beach, is extremely exclusive and unique. You’d be amazed by all the fish that you can see on this beautiful beach, from stingrays, to octopus, and if you’re lucky… some sunfish!
