“A stones throw literally from the beach!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Altea beach is pebbly and if you have problems walking its impossible to get near the sea let alone push a buggy near. However the walkway and promenade is really good.They are supposed to be updating it but due to the crisis these plans have been ditched for now!

“very pretty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Picturesque village, I recommend sitting with a coffee watching the world go by at the harbour! The town has become "touristy" but the promenade walk is lovely and lined with cafes and bars

“Lovely walk along an attractive prom!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Altea’s beach is pebbly, but despite this it has a wonderful promenade stretching the length of the beach form the port to the other end of town. There are plenty of places to stop for a leisurely meal or a drink; what can be better than to sit and watch the world go by and enjoy the beautiful sea view?

The prom is mostly traffic-free and nicely laid out with exotic plants and seating. There are a lot of small shops selling almost anything a holiday-maker could want. We thoroughly enjoyed our day out to Altea. Parking during March was not a problem; we headed for the port and found free parking without any trouble although, I imagine, the summer months would be very different! Don't be deterred by the busy main road that runs through the town, behind the prom.

“Great variety of eating establishments”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We went from Albir to Altea (not for the first time) on the bus. A walk along the front lets you eat your way around the world.
