“stunning views - worth the effort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

excellent walks - moderate to difficult - you'll need good hiking footwear and plenty of water - there's little or no cover once yuo're on the top, so protect your skin and your head! You'll need a good head for heights too.

“Exercise and relaxation at the same time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

On the last day of a holiday, we took a walk from Albir through the Sierra Helada National Park to the Faro Lighthouse. Looking at it from a distance and as a mature couple, we thought it was going to be an arduous climb across rough terrain, but it was none of that. It was a wide tarmac footpath (in far better condition than most pavements in fact) which although ascended to a high position, was a gentle slop thought, with brilliant views of the blue Mediterranean as well as the towns of Albir and Altea and even further afield to Calp and the spectacular rocky promontory of the Penyal D'Ifach. The temperature that day in the shade was in the mid thirties, but as this was not in the shade you can imagine how warm it was, but despite this, we found the steady walk not at all taxing and more of a relaxation viewing the exceptional scenery on the way to a fully refurbished lighthouse in a prominent hilltop position.

“Nice walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Lighthouse walk well worth the effort. It takes about thirty minutes and takes through some very scenic areas

“Hotter than.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This was a great trip. We took it twice during our stay. Lovely environment, and a tourist track with lots of information - even in english. It´s a normal route, perfect for bikers, and some alternative routes a bit more challenging. We learned a lot on our way, and got a good look at both fossils and the old ocre mine. Recommendable!
