The commercial part of the town,offers its market ,boutiques and the newer palm-lined esplanade packed with restaurants serving delicious international cuisines.
You would expect Altea to have a harbour, being located beside the sea as it is, but in fact Altea has 2 harbours, the old fishing harbour and a somewhat newer Sports harbour
Altea holds the biggest street market in the region and visitors flock from all over the area to purchase fresh locally grown produce and gifts, the market is held on Tuesdays from 8.30am till 1pm.
Although most of our guests seem more than content to while away the day relaxing and enjoying the easy lifestyle associated with Altea´s old town, and beach, there are a multitude of things to do in the surrounding area. Due to Altea´s cultural status (it is home to the University of Fine Arts) there are dozens of art galleries and antique and craft shops, selling items unique to the area. As well as the many sports on offer, there are also many attractions for children (and the young at heart)
City life in Alicante (45 mins) and Valencia (1 hr 15 mins) is offset by the stunning Costa Blanca mountain scenery, home to the ancient monastery village of Guadalest. Altea is only approximately 20 minutes drive from the night life of Benidorm , and is handily placed for visiting its many attractions.
The famous water park of Aqualandia and Terra Mitica, Spain´s largest theme park with rides from around the world. Also the very popular Mundomar Dolphinarium.
