Other things to note
Altea is an market town, with a bussling market every Tuesday. The old town of Altea is a maze of cobbled narrow and crooked streets with glimpses of the bay, and definitely worth a visit. Other sights include the church of La Mare de Déu del Consol ("Our Lady of Solace"), easily identifiable by its picturesque blue and white domes, tiled with glazed ceramics. the Old Town is filled with charming little restaurants and cafes.
Altea has fabulous shopping, with an abundance of designer boutiques, and small, more affordable, alternatives.
The long pebble beach of Altea offers a lovely, flat walk along the palm tree aligned promenade, leading to the to the harbour. Good restaurants can be found along the whole walk. If you walk past the harbour, about 1km down the road you will find the town of Albir.
In Albir there are some lovely parks for children... 4Quatro, parc Eucalyptus and El Churinguito (a great paella restaurant really popular with the locals, which has a place for kids to play, watched by supervisors).
If you carry on down the coast, you will walk in the natural Park Serra Gelada. This is a beautiful walk, takes about an hour each way depending on how quickly you walk and how long you stop at the viewpoints. Scenery is stunning and from the lighthouse you may be lucky and see dolphins.
I would really advise you to come by car, there are many attractions for young and old within a 30 min range.
I have listed some here:
Terra Mitica (Attraction park, Finestraat), Aqualandia & MundoMar (waterpark & aquatic animal park, Benidorm), TerraNatura & AquaNatura (zoo and waterpark, Finestrat), Karting (Benidorm).
If you are looking for sand beaches, head for Benidorm (10km south) or Calpe (10km north).
Fuentes de Algar are lovely waterfalls in the mountains, and a great place to cool off in the sumer, swimming in the cold mountain water.
The mountain town of Guadalest is well worth a visit, just for the view alone. There is also a castle and a tourist town with museums and cafes.
The whole region is packed with amazing restaurants, where you can eat and drink for a brilliant quality and good price.
Valencia is about an hour away, and well worth a visit. The Oceanografic and city of arts and sciences is a complex of museums, cinemas and the biggest aquarium in Europe.
The area is renowned for a whole heap of sporting activities. It is a very popular for cyclists. Don Canyo golf club is situated in Altea la Vella (5km), kayaking and watersports can be found in LÓlla (2km), and Benidorm (10km). There is a good diving school in Calpe. horse. There is a Cricket Club in Albir and fantastic horse riding excursions can be arranged throughout the region, for all levels, (Rancho la Ofra, through the Valley of Guadalest, is highly recommended, absolutely stunning).
