ALFAZ DEL PI – ALBIR
The Albir beach is a pebble beach belonging to the municipality of Alfaz del Pí, north of the city of Benidorm. Unlike its neighbor, it is a less crowded town. One of the things that characterizes it is that it welcomes in its municipal term more than 50 nationalities that reside here permanently. As a sign of integration and coexistence, Alfaz del Pí, on which the beach of Albir depends, is twinned with the city of Oslo. Both the village of Alfaz del Pí and its beach are a residential area and holiday away from the masses, surrounded by the Natural Park of Sierra Helada as well as the warm Mediterranean atmosphere, with a multitude of charming coves and crystal clear waters. We will find a great variety of nationalities: Germans, French, Norwegians, Dutch, Belgians … And it is almost difficult to find native people. Due to this great internationality and coexistence of cultures that takes place in Alfaz del Pí, it was more than necessary to create in this small locality Spanish, Norwegian as well as British colleges.
Due to the type of beach, it is a little crowded one. Most of its visitors are foreigners and are often accompanied by chairs to stand on the shore and enjoy the good weather and sun. Families also have their place in Albir Beach. The town hall has two playgrounds along the beach, equipped with slides, rock climbing, swings and benches, with a fine sand floor, very comfortable for the little ones. One of the most visited sites is the Albir Lighthouse, located in the Sierra Helada Natural Park. At the entrance of the enclosure there is a municipal parking lot that allows us to access this area on foot. From the walk to the lighthouse we can see in the foothills of Sierra Helada some old ocher mines, which can be accessed but with great caution and suitable footwear. Also in this area we will see a series of coves more natural, are somewhat hidden and is usually practicing nudism. They are the coves of La Mina, the Metge and the Cala del Amerador.
Due to the proximity of the two international airports: El-Altet (Alicante) and Manises (Valencia), it is very well communicated. And thanks to the AP-7 highway it is very easy to reach any destination. There are AVE trains to Madrid from Valencia and Alicante. It has wonderful golf courses nearby: Altea Golf Club, Ifach Golf Club, (Moraira) Javea Golf Club, 2 at Villa Aitana Finestrat and Bonalba in Alicante.
