Altea beach is a homely pebble and shale beach just a short distance outside of Benidorm that boasts great views and sits in front of a fabulous promenade.
This is a great beach for families as it has a very clean and well kept children’s play area and the sea is shallow, clean and calm because of an offshore barrier. It is also manned by a lifeguard just in case you or your kids encounter any problems in the water.
It is also very spacious and it has great facilities near by. There are multiple restaurants just across the promenade, and there are foot showers so you clean the sand off your feet before you leave.
Altea itself is a very cultural area of Benidorm that plays host to the Moors & Christians fiesta which is great fun for spectators of all ages and takes place on the 4th weekend of September every year.
