Las Antípodas sailing school

The excitement of the catamaran, the adventure of kayaking, the freedom of cutting through the sea on a windsurfing board or a wakeboard when the sea is calm. All of this is possible thanks to the location of this centre, set in a calm inlet in the Peñón de Ifach. Beginners can benefit from the sheltered conditions of the bay, while the more experienced sailors can enjoy the open sea or the adventure of sailing around the Peñón.

Open from March to November, it offers classes and hires out catamarans, windsurfing boards, sea kayaks and wakeboards. At weekends, in spring and autumn, they organise crossings by catamaran between Xàbia and Altea. In summer you can take a trip out in a kayak either in the morning or at night if there is a full moon. If you book in advance, you can sign up for courses or sail on a cruiser throughout the year.



Augusto Brunet in 1978 was the founder of Las Antipodas and his challenge was that this type of water sports could be at the reach for everyone. Today, after more than 30 years, is one of the most recognice centers in Spain. Our secret? An infalible metology, the latest in material, a perfect conditions across the beautiful bay of Les Basetes (on the most beautiful zone of the Comunidad Valenciana, but most of all, passion for what we do... Teach to sail! And this is why more than the 70% of our customers repeat every year.


Las Antipodas is located in one of the prettiest and most typically Mediterranean areas of the Region of Valencia, nestled between the municipalities of Calpe, Benissa and Moraira. A stunning bay with crystal clear waters, rocky sea bottoms, sand and posidonia meadows (a sign of excellent marine life) surrounded by coves with rocky cliffs where typically Mediterranean vegetarian hangs down and pine groves stretch right down to the sea. A unique setting where you can enjoy the best water sports under the guidance of pioneering professionals in this field, such as the current Windsurf IFCA Freestyle World Champion Vicky Sánchez, who could be your exclusive instructor and infuse you with her passion for this magnificent sport.
