Other Site Characteristics

Espacio marino situado en el Mar Mediterráneo, al este de la Península Ibérica, frente a la costa de la provincia de Alicante. Este espacio incluye las aguas comprendidas en una franja marina irregular que se extiende de norte a sur desde la zona residencial denominada Cala d'Or, sita en el término municipal de El Campello, hasta la Cala de los Judíos, ubicada en la parte norte de la bahía de Alicante. Alcanza una profundidad máxima cercana a los 35 m. Toda la superficie marina del espacio se sitúa sobre la plataforma continental. Este sector de Alicante forma parte del dominio más árido y seco de las costas españolas, lo que se traduce también en las condiciones oceanográficas, cuyas aguas presentan unos valores de temperatura y salinidad algo superiores a los de las masas de aguas circundantes. Las masas de agua que bañan el LIC son aguas de origen atántico, tansformadas por procesos de evaporación, mezcla y convección.
