The cosmopolitan village of Altea is one of the most charming and fascinating on the Costa Blanca. Along the esplanade interesting boutiques and shops jostle with restaurants and bars. In the old historic quarter, narrow lanes of whitewashed houses and gourmet restaurants wind up the hill to a cobbled square with bustling terraces overlooked by the distinctive blue ceramic domes of the church. In summer the old town is totally pedestrianised and the streets around the church are taken up with arts and crafts stalls where local artists exhibit their work. As well as the crystal clear sea and blue flag beaches with all the usual water sports, the area has plenty of activities within easy reach to fill a holiday full of fun and excitement. * Aqualandia - a water park with rides and fun for everyone. * Mundomare - a marine park with dolphins. * Fonts de Algar - a natural spring where you can bath in rock pools and climb up waterfalls.
