Oliva is ten kilometres of clean beaches and clean see. In the town the Christian village and the Moorish suburb stand out. The most interesting places include the Archpriestal Palace, the convent of Rebollet, the “Torre de Comare” (from the 5th and 6th centuries), San Roque (from the 18th and 19th centuries), and the ruins of the castle of Santa Ana. Also noteworthy is the house of Gregorio Mayans and the ancestral homes from the 17th to the 19th centuries on Calle Tamarit.
The most crowded areas are around the beaches of Daimús, Miramar and Guardamar. The yacht club and the marina give opportunities to go water sports like windsurfing. Another standalone place of interest is the Pego-Oliva Fen Nature Reserve, wetlands territory with rare animals and plants, that makes a great ecological value.
