Altea Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Altea

With its attractive shingle beach, stunning natural coves, picture-perfect old town and traditional waterfront, a holiday to Altea showcases a truly alternative side to the Costa Blanca. A far cry from the neon lights and hectic bars of its sister town, Benidorm, just 15 minutes down the road, Altea is all about total indulgence. With plenty going on and a peaceful, welcoming atmosphere, Altea is the perfect place for couples and families alike.

Accommodation in Altea is relatively quiet, with just a few small hotels, privately owned villas and B&Bs and self-catering apartments by the beach.

 

Where to stay

Altea Old Town

Despite booming tourism and plenty of development over recent years, Altea’s Old Town still remains full of Spanish charm and hospitality. The location of the Costa Blanca’s famous blue and white domed church that looks out proudly over the town and beach, it’s well worth heading up there simply to take in the breath-taking views of the entire area and out to sea. Don’t forget to take plenty of pictures!

Accommodation in the Old Town is a low-key affair, mainly consisting of small, boutique hotels and pretty self-catering apartments.

Roda Beach

Altea boasts a fantastic coastline spanning eight kilometres made up of small coves laying alongside a mixture of sand and shingle beaches. Roda Beach is a particularly popular area, with its crystal clear water and laid back appeal. Stretching 1400 metres and found directly opposite the Old Town, Roda Beach has repeatedly been awarded the Blue Flag for its cleanliness and safety. There are plenty of watersports here too offering entertainment for all ages, and the beach is backed by an excellent assortment of restaurants, snack bars and places to grab an ice cream.

What to see

Once you've finished chilling on the beach or rocking the nightlife of Benidorm, why not head out for a bit of sightseeing? Start off by strolling into the hilly Old Town, where you can’t fail to come across the Virgen del Consuelo Church. Its eye-catching bright blue dome stands out amongst the sparkling white houses, becoming something of a Spanish icon. Constructed in the 19th century, it shows off a stunning interior made up of floral motifs and gold frescoes, plus of course it’s handy for ducking out of the midday heat. When you’ve finished looking around, there’s a quaint little plaza outside, traditionally Spanish in style, where you can kick back with a cool drink or a spot of lunch.

Nightlife

Altea is all about laid back family fun and loud nights out aren’t really there thing here. There’s a handful of late-night bars and tavernas right in the middle of Altea, but if dancing ‘til you drop is a big part of your holiday, jump in a taxi to the nearby larger-than-life Benidorm just 15 minutes away. Being the Costa’s party capital, there’s plenty of places in Benidorm for a drink or three, with nightclubs, cabaret bars and karaoke as far as the eye can see. Taxis are plentiful and relatively inexpensive, and can be flagged down on Benidorm’s main strip, making getting back to Altea after a heavy night very easy.

What to eat

With Altea being right on the coast, it’s no surprise that the town’s restaurants specialise in fresh seafood in a very big way. Most eateries can be find lining the promenade at the waterfront, where you can enjoy lazy lunches and delicious dinners on the al fresco patios overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean. Head slightly inland to the Old Town where chic little cafes and dinky tapas bars dot the pretty little crooked lanes and before you know it you won’t have a care in the world.

Shopping

If stocking up on souvenirs to take home marks a great holiday for you, go straight for the Old Town. Picturesque cobblestone alleyways blushing with bougainvillea boast idyllic little shops selling everything from designer accessories to ceramics and postcards. There’s so much to choose from, all authentically Spanish, so just make sure you have enough room in your suitcase!
