Altea || Alicante

Altea, the cultural capital of the region Valencia, is part of the province of Alicante and is situated at the so-called Costa Blanca, on the Mediterranean coast. The old town centre is situated on a hill. The picturesque church with its typical blue domes which stands high above the bright white houses. The “Nuestra Señora del Consuelo” is also called the calling card of the town.

The Costa Blanca is first and foremost the perfect destination for lovers of sun, sand and beach. The various coastal towns all have their own typical Spanish charm with vast (pebble) beaches, boulevards and terraces. Altea lies between Alicante (50 kilometres to the south) and Valencia (100 kilometres to the north). The nearest big city, however, is popular seaside resort Benidorm.

Over the years, Altea has expanded across a vast area. Besides the town Altea with its ancient town centre, the villages Altea La Vella, Pueblo Mascarat and Altea Hills, are also part of the municipality. Close by, you will find popular seaside towns Albir en Calpe. The latter is especially well-known for a large rock in the sea, the “Penyal d’Ifac”, its fishing port with fish market and the many fish restaurants.

Benidorm is less than fifteen minutes away by car. The clean and safe beaches have been awarded many times. You can not only enjoy the sun here, but also (water) sports activities such as volleyball, beach football, or water skiing (towed by the cable ski installation of the water-ski school).

Had enough from all the sand between your toes? There are lots of other things to do. The narrow winding and sloping streets in the old town centre, all offer magnificent views across the town and the Mediterranean. The “Sierra de Bernia”, the vast mountain area north of Altea, offers various possibilities from walking, to cycling and hiking.

There is plenty to do for the entire family, such as theme parks and water parks in and around Benidorm. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy themselves in “Parque de Foietes” where you can play various ball sports, make use of the running track, or the Olympic size pool. Until the late hours, you and old can enjoy themselves in vibrant Benidorm.

Altea is particularly known as an artist village, so that is why there are so many galleries and crafts shops. Perhaps here you will find a suitable souvenir to take home with you! The area has several sites, such as the castle of Guadalest, the “El Castell de Guadalest”, just northwest of Altea, which offers not only a glimpse of the old days, but also an unprecedented and spectacular view.

Altea has several supermarkets, a pharmacy, bakery, bike rental shop, and a great variety in shops, restaurants and terraces.
