You need beach shoes as its very pebbly just lovely being in the sun and sea and not quite so crowded as the sandier beaches. Go early to get parking though!!!

Nice Place to be in a summer Holiday. Clear water and a Beach with enough Space for Your Towel. Restaurantes along the Beach and a short way into the city.

beautiful place to stay at the hotel and relax by the pool and beach in front of it. Excellent attention in the dining room at all times when enabled. It has on the front an outdoor bar, very practical.

Flat and by the side of great bars, restaurants and shops, this is a great beach with lifeguards spaced along. Parking space all along too. Very quiet and peaceful, so ideal for older people

the water is clean, and is great for swimming as there are no real currents although it does shelve quite steeply. There wasn't a sandy stretch nowhere that we could fing nod we did walk for a couple of miles

The area around the beach is attractive, the beaches are great! Very good for young families and there are some good Spanish restaurants if you search. A very nice resort!

we had a week in Benidorm and spent several pleasant afternoons in Altea. It has a lovely church and square at the top of the hill. We took a bus from Benidorm central for only 1.5Euro each way. Lovely restaurants a long the sea front.

The clearest water I've ever been to, turquoise colour, smooth white stones witch offers you a wonderful hot stone massage and the best part, not crowded!
