Small-sized coves, traditional dinners on the waterfront, and souvenir-shopping in the picturesque old town. Holidays to Altea showcase a different side of the Costa Blanca.
Costa Blanca’s Altea the Quiet side.
Even though there’s only a small mountain separating Altea from the Costa Blanca’s loudest resort, Benidorm, the two towns couldn’t be more different. Altea lives life at a much slower pace – neon-lit nightspots make way for seafront tapas bars, and you’ll find traditional restaurants in lieu of Brit-style pubs and fast food joints.
A pick of beaches
Thanks to an eight-kilometre-long coastline, Altea’s beach scene gives you a number of options. There are big beaches, quiet coves, and bays backed by cliffs, all carpeted in a mix of sand and shingles. You’ve got the Blue Flag-flying Roda Beach near the old town, and the black-stone Cap Negret Beach, which is great for watersports. And there’s Playa de l’Olla, which hosts one of the biggest fireworks displays in Spain during the summer.
