A piece of peace and quiet in Spain's Alicante

Set along Spain's Costa Blanca in the Alicante region, the town of Altea stretches along the coast near the Sierra Helada Natural Park. Overlooking the Balearic Sea, Altea is considerably quieter than its infamous neighbor, Benidorm. Rather than rowdy nightlife and a beachfront party scene, Altea offers a charming fishing harbor, pebbled beaches, and a whitewashed Old Town set up in the hills. Consider Altea vacation rentals near this historic center with views of the sea, or look closer to the beaches for a true escape from it all.

Things to do

From crafts to creatures in cultural Costa Blanca

In Altea's old town, you'll quickly learn why this charming little village has served as a muse for many Spanish artists from throughout the Costa Blanca. You can visit the campus galleries of Miguel Hernandez University, or catch a performance at the Palau Altea theater. The Virgin of the Consol, a domed church with an ornate blue-tiled roof, is also a must-see when in Alicante. Take the kids just outside Altea to the Mundomar animal park, a tropical-themed sea-life park with dolphin shows, or to the Terra Natura water park and zoo.

Activities

Sun and sand—with a southern Spanish twist

When in Altea, a stroll through the peaceful streets of the Old Town is an absolute must. Stop in the cafes, shops, and galleries among the white houses that line the curved walkways, and soak in the Spanish sun. If you prefer to stay close to the coast, you'll be rewarded with a mix of pebbled and sandy beaches, and boat tours can be booked to explore the stretch of sea leading to the Sierra Helada Natural Park. Here, spend your time hiking and biking along the trails, exploring some of Costa Blanca's famous natural beauty.

Weather

You can consider Alicante all year long

Alicante is an ideal destination all year, thanks to its mild temps and low rainfall. June through September is when you'll find the best beach weather—unfortunately, that's not exactly a well-kept secret, so expect large crowds during this season. For lower rates, check out wintertime Altea vacation rentals. The mercury hovers in the 50s, but with plenty of sunshine and deals to be found, it's worth considering. If you must get to the beach, most of May and late September are likely to be the best bets for perfect weather and quieter crowds.

Natural features

Rolling hills, jagged mountains, and pebbled beaches (oh my)

Altea is set against a backdrop of rolling hillside, which is also where the city's Old Town is tucked away. Down at sea level, you'll find a coastline that's a mix of sandy and pebbled beaches, but all with one thing in common: a front-row seat to the calm, lapping waves of the Balearic Sea and views of Calpe Rock peak off in the distance. In the opposite direction, you can visit the Sierra Helada Natural Park, a mountain and marine conservation area best explored by boat, or along its hiking trails.
