Altea Area Guide
Altea is without doubt one of the most beautiful and charming places of the Costa Levantina, located in the Comarca Marina Alta, between the towns of Benidorm and Calpe. One of the most photographed towns in the Alicante coast and a place that has inspired artists and painters for decades.
Its location is unbeatable, just 55 km from Alicante and 90 km from Valencia and with access to 2 international airports, Manises 150 km, and Altea within 60 km.
The beautiful old town is a labyrinth of whitewashed houses whose pink roofs stand among the famous blue domes in narrow cobbled streets, with stairs and alleys decorated with hundreds of colorful plants.
Its 8 km coastline is dotted with magnificent sandy beaches and crystal clear waters with hidden coves among the cliffs of the rugged Sierra de Bernia, such as Playa de Ronda and Playa Cap Blanc in the urban center, or as L’Olla or Cap Negret further north or the beautiful beaches of Albir and Mascarat.
Altea offers a beautiful fishing harbor, a beautiful promenade along the coast where we can find a lively ambient due to its amount of terraces of restaurants, bars, and ice cream shops.
