Altea is without doubt one of the most charming towns to be found on Spain's 'White Coast', located in the region of Alicante on the Costa Blanca. The town is just 11 kilometres north of Benidorm, yet the two resorts are worlds apart. Altea is similar to other Costa Blanca towns in that it has a new and an old neighbourhood. The old section is perched on top of a hill from where you will find really spectacular views. Altea is a pretty town, popular with both holidaymakers and those fortunate enough to be able to live in the area; it has a growing community of multinational expatriats. This town is a holiday haven for the more discerning tourist who will be captivated by its medieval cobbled streets, its picture book old quarter and the delights of its palm-fringed seafront promenade.
The ascent to the old section along steep slopes and stepped streets reveals a broad horizon at every turn and extends along the entire La Marina region. The silhouette of the Peñon de Ifach on one side and the Helade range on the other, frame the view of the sea, with the ever present gulls sweeping low over the town.
As with most of this region, traditional rice dishes are what you will find most on the Spanish menu. There are also a wide selection of restaurants offering all kinds of international cuisine to offer for every budget.
Altea enjoys a privileged location and an excellent mild climate, with an average year round temperature of 18-20° C. With the vast array of fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood also on offer here, it is no wonder that the World Health Organisation has declared it one of the healthiest places in the world to live.
Alicante airport is an hour's drive away, and public transport is easily located in the town, with both trams and buses giving easy access to other towns such as Benidorm, a mere 11 Km away.
