Altea is a nice day trip option from Alicante. Very easy to reach by tram. You must change the tram line in Benidorm. Altea is full of white small houses, narrow streets, excellent views and a special village feeling. Small artesan boutiques and local restaurants.
I have been thinking a lot how to title my review, and happiness is the word to describe what I felt while there. It was a genuine pleasure to climb the hill wandering the steep, narrow streets with white houses and lovely flowers. We got...More
Well worth a wander. Some charming views and streets. All the restaurants seemed pricier than cheap and cheerful Calpe. Interestingly, many street map signage has the 'You are here' rubbed out. So, don't rely on them. Bring a map. Bwalk the tourist route it recommends....More
