The up and coming resort of Altea on the Costa Blanca is a unique destination in this area, celebrated for the stunning rugged landscape upon which it sits as well as the balmy climate. It does not boast the same long crescents of golden sand as found in other nearby resorts, but there are some incredible views and pretty little coves here which holiday makers will enjoy.
The town itself has kept its authentic, Spanish feel and the Virgen de Consuelo Church with its dazzling blue roof is well worth a visit. As well as the old town, Altea has an attractive harbour and beach area with a range of local tavernas serving delicious local specialties, which you can sample as you take in the wonderful aspects all around. Keen sight seers will also love a trip further inland to the Sierra de Bernia Mountains, and there are also golf courses close by for sports fans.
