Resort Guides - Altea



Altea holidays take you to the sunny coast of Spain's Costa del Sol. Lying between the lively resorts of Benidorm and Calpe, Altea offers a measure of peace and relaxation not found in its near neighbours. This makes it a very appealing resort as those who wish to relax by day and party by night, do not have far to travel. A one time fishing village, Altea retains its traditional atmosphere. It is a picturesque town framed by the Bernia Mountains and washed by sparkling Mediterannean waters. The old town sits back from the beach in an elevated position with cobbled streets winding their way up the hill to the Nuestra Senora del Consuelo church and the main square. Both the old town and the coastal strip are filled with bars and restaurants catering for all tastes. Hotels and apartments offer good accommodation and satisfy most budgets. The pebbled beach provides a range of water sports for the more active guest. While nightlife is low key, high octane entertainment is only a taxi ride away. Shopping is more than adequate and provides for all your needs.
