Refundable deposit 200 Euro Alicante is one of the most popular provinces as a tourist destination, with the famous resorts of Alicante, its capital city, Benidorm, Denia, Elche and Torrevieja. Thousands of visitors flock here every year to enjoy beautiful blue flag beaches, all year mild climate, delicious cuisine and friendly, warm welcome from the locals.
The area was subsequently occupied by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthagians, Romans, Visigoths, Moors and finally conquered by Ferdinand III in the 13th century.
At one point in history, the region formed a part of the Kingdom of Valencia.
Altea is without doubt one of the most charming towns to be found on Spain’s ‘White Coast’, located in the region of Alicante on the Costa Blanca. The town is just 11 kilometres north of Benidorm, yet the two resorts are worlds apart. Altea is similar to other Costa Blanca towns in that it has a new and an old neighbourhood. The old section is perched on top of a hill from where you will find really spectacular views.
Cuisine Try any of the delicious varieties of rice dishes, combined with shellfish, fish or meat that are renowned in the region of Alicante.
To complete your meal, Alicante has some excellent local wine denominations, and for dessert, don’t forget the famous ice creams, Turron and dates. Climate The province of Alicante enjoys a privileged location and an excellent mild climate, with an average year round temperature of 18-20° C.
Although the resort of Altea is less than 10 miles from Benidorm, the two resorts could not be more different. Altea is a relaxing holiday destination with historic buildings, cobbled streets, a beautiful church and a number of typically Spanish shops, restaurants and cafes.
Altea has many attractions and you will not be stuck for things to do. The resplendent church of Nuestra Senora Del Consuelo was built in 1910 and it is a splendid example of a Mediterranean church with hand-painted, sea blue mosaic tiles.
The best way to get round Altea is on foot, as this way you can see the delightful old buildings on the cobbled streets that would be missed if you were travelling by car. You can also take a mountain walking tour with one of several companies that specialize in guided tours.
Golfers will find the Altea Golf Club to be on par with other top golf courses in Spain; therefore Altea is a popular destination with golfers from all over Europe.
Although Altea has plenty of traditional bars and restaurants, and you can enjoy a different location every night of your holiday if you wish, the nightlife is nowhere near as lively as in neighbouring Benidorm. However, as Benidorm is located less than 10 miles away you can easily take a taxi from your Altea accommodation if you want to stay out until the early hours.
How to get to Altea from the Airport Both the summer and winter weather in Altea is very enjoyable due to the Sierra de Bernia mountains that surround the town and keep out northern winds. Temperatures during the hottest summer months may exceed 30°C, and winter temperatures usually do not drop below 15°C.
Altea, with its approximate 20.000 inhabitants, stretches a surface of 34.4 square kilometres and is built on a hill of the Costa Blanca. The fabulous basilica with its resplendent blue domes, graciously crowns the top of the mountain. Built onto the hillside, the old town centre with its many slim streets and alleys, has become home to many an artist and contains many cosy, characteristic restaurants and bistros.
Tourism, having increased significantly on the Costa Blanca from the 1950´s onward through Altea s Mediterranean climate, child-friendly beaches, and characteristic downtown area, is a main means of livelihood for the town and its people.
History of Altea Altea s history goes back many centuries and is characterised by the manifold civilisations which have passed Altea on their way along the course of time. Iberians, Fenicians, Muslims, Greeks, and Romans have all left their marks. It appears that the name Altea is also of Greek origin, as it is thought to have come from the Greek word Altahia, meaning `I heal´. Since the town is located at the mouth of the Algar river (meaning 'the river of health'), historians assume that in the old days Altea was a hamlet with strategic, medical, and beneficial value.
Beaches in Altea Cliffs and pebbled beaches vary each other along Altea s 6 kilometres long beach. Little bays and beaches follow in succession from the Barranco del Mascarat up to the pier marking the border with L'Alfás del Pi.
Near the old town centre lies the Playa de la Roda beach, while the biggest beach, Cap Blanch, can be found a little further south, merging seamlessly with the Albir beach. Further north lies the Playa de Cap Negret beach, a pebble beach with at its end a small inlet with black rocks named Cala del Soio. Another beach favourite is L´Olla, situated right across from its namesake island.
Altea's borders are marked by the mountain peak Mascarat and the Sierra de Bernia, where one will find inlets with small pebble beaches such as La Barreta, La Solsida, and La Galera.
Sights in Altea Besides the previously mentioned church of Virgen del Consuelo with its magnificent blue domes, Altea offers a range of museums: Museo étnico de la Musica (Ethnic museum of Music), with its collection of Carlos Blanco Fadol, is considered one of the world's most important in its field. A fabulous concert-hall offers a diverse range of drama -and musical performances for your enjoyment.

Sala de Pinturas, the museum housing the art of painting Casa de Cultura, in which temporary collections are on display.
Things to do in Altea Every visitor to Altea is invited to a journey of exploration on foot. The labyrinth of narrow alleys offering a gorgeous view over the Bay of Altea is what has given Altea its fame. On your way you will pass numerous small stores, boots, and galleries offering a wide range of hand-crafted goods. A stone's throw away from Altea lies Cactuslandia, hosting a collection of over a thousand species of cacti and parrots that will most surely amaze you. Multiple amusement parks are found in the direction of Benidorm, such as Terra Mítica, Spain's first Theme Park on The Costa Blanca. This Theme Park is divided into five areas representing five lost civilizations of bygone ages. Its attractions take you back to the myths and legends of these ancient cultures. Aqualandia is a very large Water Theme Park in which young and old alike can have an unforgettable experience in its many swimming pools with springboards, rapid currents, waterfalls, and a stunning range of waterslides. Gorgeous exotic animals and creatures of the sea await you at Safari Park Vergel or Zoopark Mundomar, both of which also host a variety of shows and attractions.
Sports and recreation in Altea The beach at Marina Greenwich offers a variety of sporting facilities. One may scuba dive, fish, surf, attend the sailing school or rent a yacht. Similar activities are on offer over at the harbour and at the water sports club. Those who love a good game of golf will also feel welcome in Altea. Situated by Altea la Vieja, against the backdrop of the Mountains of Bernia, one discovers the Don Cayo Club de Golf, a nine-hole golf course with an amazing view.
Completed in 2005 between la Sierra Finestrat and the Mediterranean Sea, Club de Golf Real de Faula offers a spacious twin eighteen-hole golf course. The area also hosts two 5-star hotels, swimming pools, tennis lanes, a kids club, a fitness centre, restaurants and shopping facilities.
Gastronomy of Altea The characteristic Spanish dishes are also richly represented in Altea. Most typical for the region, as for all of the Costa Blanca, is -undoubtedly- the rice, which is prepared in over 300 different ways. In the mountains, rice is used as one of the ingredients in the famous stew, and so are pork, sausage, pumpkin, turnip, beets, chick peas, and beans. Seaside restaurants always offer fish and shellfish on their menus. The countless (fish)restaurants in the harbour serve the most delicious local specialities on offer: Dorade, Lubina a la Sal (in a crust of salt) or grilled with a nip of olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice. Gastronomy in the Costa Blanca also includes honey-sweet deserts, such as nougat and ice cream from Xixona, grapes, raisins, dates, almond pie, pastry drenched in sweet syrup accompanied by coffee liqueur from Alcoy and herb liqueur from the Sierra Mariola. The premium red, light red, and rosé wines originate from the Alto Vinalopó and Marina Alta districts.
There is possibility of late arrival between 23:00h and 02:00h for an extra charge of €25 paid locally.
