Pebbles!

Lovely, quiet beach, but lots of pebbles near the water's edge. Take swim shoes and you will have a great time.

Called here after visiting benidorm as it was described as being a lovely town and we wanted to cool off in the sea. Currently the whole promenade is a building site with no access to the sea. Walked a long way to find a very pebbley beach with no safe access to the sea. Gave up and went back to... More

We got the number 10 bus from Benidorm to here for 1.50 Euro each. Bus runs every 10 minutes and took 30 minutes to get here. Lovely beach. It was pebbles not sand but this was ok for us. There was a pleasant breeze. Beach was spotlessly clean. Life guard present. Children's activities, climbing frames, beach volley ball. There were... More

Altea is very nice place but not the beach... Is very uncomfortable to swim or just relaxing. Many rocks, even inside of the sea..

A lovely beach for doing most things with the advantage being that it tends not to be as fantastically frequented as the Benidorm beaches and you can park nearby. You can easily enjoy a day on the beach as the sea is safe to swim in and there's plenty to see/do and drink/eat at a myriad of nearby hostelries.
