Cabo de San Antonio Natural Marine Reserve is one of the most beautiful corners of the east coast, consists of ravines and high cliffs that plunge into the sea abruptly. It is located between the towns of Denia and Javea where this tongue of land with a height of 170m above sea level and an area of 250 hectares, is spectacular scenery and great environmental wealth.
In one of its end, in the highest area is the Faro de San Antonio which began to guide sailors with their first glimmerings in 1855 and takes 161 years signaling the coast to sailors and fishermen by these rugged coastlines. At the top is a viewpoint from where you can enjoy incredible views of the coast of Javea and Denia, one of the most beautiful views of the area.
