Benidorm is the leading tourist enclave on Spain's
Mediterranean coast. It has a complete range of facilities and services to
accomodate various millions of national and foreign
tourists each year. Skyscrapers, avenues and newly opened streets in
this busy urban centre facing the sea
have been created
to offer a modern yet tasteful city for holidays and fun.
The Canfali hill, a promontory located in the
centre of Benidorm bay, divides the coast into two splendid sandy beaches
- the Levante and the Poniente beach. The walk along the shore totals five
kilometres, providing a spectacular view of the sea and the Alicante
coast. The Levante beach was built up first, and has countless bars, Cafés
and terraces for snacks, drinks and whiling away an afternoon. The
Poniente beach offers the same quality - with a full range of services.
A visit to Altea starts at the highest part of the
town. From the Plaza de Nuestra Señora del Consuelo, boasting a church
topped by unique blue and white tiled cupolas, a magnificent view over the
district can be gained. Cobblestoned streets and steps descend the hill,
flanked by whitewashed houses, which were once protected by town walls. At
the foot of the hill is the fishermen's quarter, now enlivened by a
seafront promenade and a port, which keeps the town busy. Along streets
and around plazas, craftsmen and artists mingle with holidaymakers and
neighbours to form a captivating crowd.
Calpe sits close to the Rock of Ifach on a
hill rising up from the last spurs of the Sierra Bernia, a
geographical marvel that provides access to the northernmost towns
of Alicante's Marina disctrict. It's an authentic tourist site, with a coastline boasting sandy
beaches and cliff faces in some areas, also the salt sea give to
the town a special flavor. Next to the seafront promenade are the
remains of an ancient fish salting factory from Roman times.
Calpe's fishing port comes
alive with hustle and bustle as the afternoon fish auction draws near.
On the Restaurant terraces the costumers have the possibility to try
some of the fresh local shellfish.
In the old town center are some points of interest to visit.
