Costa Blanca Sights
The best beaches are Levante Beach and Poniente Beach, both Blue Flag Beaches and Mal Pas, a small beach in the middle of the Old Town.
If you are looking to escape the buzz of Benidorm for a while, this natural beauty spot high in the mountains north of Altea is just the ticket. Known as the Fuentes del Algar, the Falls are made up of spectacular water cascades, some up to 80 metres high, which gush down the mountainside into idyllic, crystal-clear pools surrounded by lichen-covered rocks. You can swim in the refreshing pools, showered by the falling water (remember to take your swimming togs) and stroll along the picturesque, oleander-fringed pathways that follow the river. When you've had your feel of the falls, there is a restaurant, bar and cactus garden nearby or you can enjoy a picnic in the designated areas whilst soaking up the lovely scenery.
Translated from Spanish, this means sea world which gives visitors an idea of what's in store. This theme park makes a great family day out where marine animals and exotic birds are the main attractions. There's a dolphinarium, turtles, sea lions, a bat cave, penguins and even a parrot show along with a children's park. An underwater viewing area has been built giving a different perspective and there's a restaurant and numerous refreshment facilities available.
Visit the world in one day at Terra Natura. This park has 1,500 animals in a recreation of their natural environment. You can learn about different cultures, architecture, food and art from around the world in the different themed areas and there's plenty of places to eat and shop too.
