Altea has just the right balance, Beach is just the right size and the right distance from some very reasonable bars/restaurants. Toilets are right there on beach and are kept clean. and the water is clear as you like.

It's a long beach and there are several good and bad restaurants available. There's a long nice boardwalk. Plenty of lifeguards, playgrounds and toilets. It's a stone beach, with nice round stones. The ocean get deep very close to shore, maybe not the best for small children.

What a total contrast to the beach at Cap Negret this beach is how beach should be soft, plenty of sun beds and brollys to hire

The new beach in Altea has been under construction for a LONG time! Wave brakers have been constructed and deconstructed and replaced for most of the five years we've been coming here. I really look forward to coming when it is finished and the lorries and diggers have found somewhere else to make continuos noise and dust!

As the review says its a beach, clean and tidy, sand and stone, take your own beds or covers, sea clear and inviting.

If you want a sandy beach not readily found in Altea most of the Bach is cobbles/stoney. That said sun beds are readily available from vendors. Beach bars readily available and good value.

Nice, and not a lot of people. But bring along some shoes. The pebbles are not very comfortable stepping on when heading out in the water.
