Quiet.
Apr 2021 • Couples
Pleasant as ever Altea town is quiet currently, busier in the centre of town but beach and prom less so, nice being quieter to be honest though the traders and cafes owners would no doubt like to welcome more visitors.

Planned work to develop the beachfront car park to a beach area is yet to start.

Quiet

Beach and prom area fairly quiet as would maybe be the case ordinarily at this time of year but not helped either by the current situation, though the town is pleasant as ever.

Good views of the coastline
Sep 2020
This is a pebble beach which is also quite steep but the views in both directions along the coast towards Calpe and Albir are great. Not much in the way of services unless you are near the port where there is a selection of bars and restaurants.

Altea beach is beautiful and clean with lots of bars and restaurants. The only problem I found was it is a pebble beach so not good under foot and a struggle to get comfortable to sunbathe.

My Visit to Altea Old Town & dog beach.
Aug 2020 • Friends
𝗔ltea 𝗔 𝗠𝗮𝗴𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗣𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗲.

Welcome to Altea Old Town Everypawdy. This is one of the most charming towns I have visited on the Costa Blanca. ⁣

The old town is found perched on top of a hill, where you have spectacular sea & mountain views. Especially from Cronistas de España viewpoint.⁣

You can start the walk up to the old town of Altea from the Costera del Mestre de la Música which is a beautiful staircase.

The picturesque walk up to the old town is filled with traditional Spanish whitewashed houses. Following the labyrinthine of cobbled stoned streets up you will arrive at Plaza de la Iglesia.⁣

This Plaza is full of craft stands and restaurants (𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗳𝗮𝘃𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝘀 𝗟𝗶𝘁𝘁𝗹𝗲 𝗜𝘁𝗮𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝗼𝗿𝗿𝘆 𝗻𝗼 𝗽𝗶𝗰𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝗼 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝘆 𝗽𝗵𝗼𝘁𝗼𝘀 𝗺𝘆 𝗵𝗼𝗼𝗺𝗮𝗻𝘀 𝗽𝗵𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘀 𝗱𝗶𝗲𝗱) ⁣

𝗣𝗹𝗮𝘇𝗮 𝗱𝗲 𝗹𝗮 𝗜𝗴𝗹𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗮 is where you find 𝗖𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘀 𝗱𝗲 𝗘𝘀𝗽𝗮ñ𝗮 viewpoint. This has a spectacular view out over the town and onto the sea.⁣

To top it all off Altea is home to one of the largest dog beach’s I have been on so far called 𝗣𝗹𝗮𝘆𝗮 𝗠𝗮𝗿 𝘆 𝗠𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗮ñ𝗮. It is a pebbly beach so my hoomans recommend surf shoes.⁣

This is also a fantastic beach for snorkelling the sea is super calm here making it a fantastic place for us puppers to swim.

The only down side to the beach is there is no facility’s or beach bars. So remember to come well prepared. I would also recommend an umbrella for shade.⁣

I would highly recommend a stop here to any puppers travelling on the Costa Blanca with their hoomans. It is a supaw dog friendly town.

Come early

Nice rock beach, pretty clean and not overcrowded. The best time is before 10 am on weekdays. Some cafes on the seafront offer great breakfast, however, I would avoid lunching in this neighborhood.

Stony beach in the seafront of the city
Oct 2019
Pebble beach, exposed to waves from the Mediterranean. It is located on the seafront of the city and has a short distance to many eateries most of which are on the other side of the seafront. There is a play area for the little ones. For the slightly larger ones, there are various types of exercise equipment on the beach, also for handball / volleyball games.

Stony charming Beach

We stayed at the SH Villa Gadea Hotel at Altea Beach and walked into Altea several times along the Beach. For walking the promenade is fine but for swimming the Beach is too rocky in part.

Altea
Jul 2019 • Friends
As I was on holiday in Benidorm I visited the town of Altea. A place I have been meaning to go to, as recommended by other travellers. Benidorm is a great place full of energy and life, however, I needed to get away and have some time on my own. So I got on to the bus from Benidorm to Altea. The cost of the journey was very reasonable, although a bit of a bumpy ride. Arriving in Altea, I walked to the bridge at the far end of the town, and then following the river back inland. There are lots of nice pathways and scenery along the way. A host of colour, wildflowers and dragonflies, the natural garden of the river bank. With the heat of the day, I was quite thirsty, no people around, and I had nothing to drink. A bit foolish of me as I do things spontaneously, and don't think. Sometimes life is a bit more exciting that way. l climbed over a fence and picked some lemons off a tree to quench my thirst. I did look for the farmer for permission but there was nobody around. I took some photos of the surrounding area and some of me, which is a bit vain I know. We all do it from time to time, maybe it gives us a sense of importance, after all, we are only human. I returned back to the bridge and then on to the beach. At this point, I was in need of a cold beer. To my rescue, a small bar standing alone on the Pebbly beach. The freshening wind, the waves crashing to land. With my cold beer, that I drank immediately, and then another, just sitting enjoying watching the beauty of nature. Stress-free feelings with the tranquillity of the day. I could see the old town all around the hillside, with a church at the highest point. Walking up to the old town. There was a labyrinth of cobbled streets and steps leading up to the church on the hill. The small houses presented beautifully painted in white, with the dressing of colourful flowers that gave me the feeling I have found the real Spain. It was no disappointment, my expectations were surpassed by the architecture and culture, the laid back stress-free ambience of this historic place. The plaza by the church had restaurants all around, enticing, with the aroma of traditional Spanish food. A place where poets and artists can enrich their own creativity with a little help from the beautiful surrounding of Altea. The old town is a sleepy place, sometimes awoken with fiestas and fun. I would recommend you visit Altea, and also recommend sitting on the middle part of the bus as you will not feel the bumps so much. I returned to Benidorm ready for the evening fun.
Sometimes you need some time on your own, to have pleasant thoughts, and realise how lucky you are, because there is always somebody worse off than you. The old town of Altea is a place where I could grow old, but in reality, it belongs to the generations of the people of Altea, retaining there customs and culture. Not for the wealthy home seekers. A respectful visit is enough.

Once seen never forgot

We used the number 10 bus from Benidorm to the final stop in Altea. We followed the road and came to the coast. Rather than take the promenade to the port went the other way towards the wildlife area. As we walked we were encouraged to look at a variety of metal sculptures on view. We were amazed that the subject matter was on view in a public space and was definitely food for thought.
