Why visit Altea

Altea is a charming resort on Spain’s premier summer destination: the Costa Blanca. Unlike its neighbouring resort towns, such as Benidorm just 11 km up the road, Altea has retained a lot of its original old-town charm, with its historic quarters nestled in the hills and offering stunning views of the coast. It’s well placed to discover more of the area, plays host to lots of lively events during the year and, of course, is located near some of the best beaches in Spain.

Things to do

Altea is a great destination for outdoor activities and offers mountain trails and coastal paths for hiking and cycling. Make the most of this seaside resort with a trip along the coast to one of the nearby sandy beaches or take a boat tour and admire the view of the shore.

Altea Old Town is a great place to explore. Pay a visit to the blue domed church, the little lanes full of boutique shops and cafes or stop off at a bar for some delicious tapas.


If you’d like to take a day trip from Altea then our top suggestion is the little town of Polop, inland of the resort, where you can relax in the shade of the pine groves or take in the views from the castle.

For something more lively, Benidorm is a great spot for a day out and offer plenty of nightlife if you want to stay a little longer.

Eating out

La Table is a French restaurant (that also serves up classic Spanish dishes) located right on the seafront, perfect if you don’t want to stray too far from the beach. If you fancy trying some tapas then Xef Pirata is your place to be. It also does a huge range of international dishes and vegetarian options.


Altea Old Town is a good spot for some shopping, where you’ll find lots of small shops selling local products and a market. In the centre, by the main square, you’ll find Calle Rey Jaume I, the main shopping street where you can buy clothes, perfume and more.
