Altea – 7 Great days


To see Holidays in Altea

Peaceful Week

A small town with character, very… very quiet (as I needed) close to Benidorm and…

​The steep hill, topped by the cathedral was nice, but, with two small kids, we preferred to stay by the sea, so, we saw nit much in Altea

​The port


With a bad beach (pebbles), the city built a modern port that, with all the infrastructures, became one of its best attractions.

With small kids in their first experience abroad, and worrying the confusion of Benidorm, I decided to spend a week in this hotel, in full board basis.

It proved to be a good decision. We were so close to Benidorm, that we went there each day, but as soon as the children showed sights of fatigue, we returned to the hotel, were they felt like at home.

​Even the food (one of our worries) proved well, since, all the meals having two plates, there was always one them pleasing the boys. 

The only negative point was the beach: pebbles…not sand. However,  as the kids and their mother never left the pool, I was the only one to notice (well, not true… Fernanda went there a couple of times.)

I spent a great week in Altea, really a nice area. I read carefully everything before going and was prepared for what I found – a beautiful place with bad pebble beaches. Some photos in brochures are conceived to hide some details, and you risk to be badly surprised if you don’t read enough.

Going to the beach was not our main objective in location (we went often to Benidorm, 10 km away, and return to the Altea’s tranquility as soon as tired of the masses).

​Most people accepted the conditions and the beach was well frequented, but we didn’t go there.

As a matter of fact, Fernanda and I were sliding a couple of times on the pebbles, but in the 3 or 4 meters that separated the ocean from our hotel’s pool.
