“Beautiful”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

This is worth the walk up all the steps! On subsequent visits we parked higher up the hillside to have less to walk.

The church is beautiful, with a square full of cafes and market stalls opposite. Typical winding Spanish lanes, whitewashed houses, better than average souvenirs shops, great restaurants.

Arrive mid afternoon and nobody is there, it's like finding a secret world. A few hours later the place is heaving.

Don't just visit the restaurants in Altea by the sea, lovely as it is, do climb the steps.

“go after 5 and stay for dinner”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

I was staying at Benidorm for 3 days, nth much to do there so I took a bus to Altea.
Along the road walking up to the hill u surrounded by white houses.
u see beautiful mediterranean seaview on he top
when I was about to leave I met a v lovely lady who asked me to stay for dinner...
well, u will see totally diff atmosphere here, everybody comes out, shops r opened.
The beach is mostly pebbles so if u want a pretty beach, u better go back to Benidorm.
Ard EUR 20 if u take taxi, last bus run til 00:00 back to Benidorm
