Lovely area with a beautiful marina, with a few wee bars and restaurants along the promenade.

We got the bus from Benidorm for 6 euros each way, got off at the end of the beach at Altea and walked back along to Albir, stopped off in a few different bars for drinks and just people watched, loved it here it’s very laid back atmosphere.

This was a pebble beach, so we brought our beach shoes (the type you can wear in the water). The beach was very busy with people enjoying water sports. We hired sunbeds and an umbrella, because it would have been too uncomfortable to sit on the beach. The beach was surrounded by magnificent mountain views and a light house.

There was a lovely promenade area with several places to eat and drink, a small funfair and a boardwalk. I believe its about a 40 minute walk to Altea Beach. We didn't do the the walk ourselves, because on the day we visited it was far too hot.

Absolutely beautiful beach with loads of loungers to hire. Gorgeous view and plenty of activities if you wish, including paddle board or pedalo hire.

It's a pebble beach though so pick up a pair of swim shoes with rubber soles to really make the most of it. It can be uncomfortable to walk on and while swimming but with the shoes on you'll have no issues. Well worth the 10 euros we spent in the local Chino Baazar. ;-)

Clean and walkable beach services by bars and shops. Wasn't overcrw worse when we went. He certain to take an easily scanned Covid vaccination confirmation with you should a bite or drink be required.

El Albir is a lovely beach with a beautiful boardwalk. You can walk all the way to the nearby beach of Altea, which is a half hour away. There are recliner chairs and beach umbrellas for rent on the beach. The beach itself has stones, so be sure to come with proper footwear. You can also find many restaurants and bars along the beach and all over town.

It is one of the best beach in the Costa Blanca. A calm and relaxing sandy beach come on who wouldn't enjoy it. I hope next year will be much better than this!

The best thing about Playa Albir is that it’s a beach made of flat round stones instead of sand, so you don’t have to worry about getting sand everywhere. Do bring bathing shoes though. The stones are hard on your feet when getting in and out of the water. The surroundings with the Bernia mountains, Altea, the Albir lighthouse and the blue and green ocean is beautiful. I do like the locals and bring my own chair, parasol and a cooler. Sunbed and parasol are €11.
