Where is Altea?
Altea is located about 15km north of the Benidorm area and just south of the beautiful town of Calpe. Altea is one of the view villages which maintained most of the former fisherman’s village houses of the past.
Altea is Famed for its church, the Nuestra Senora del Consuelo or Virgen de Consuelo in the old town, famed for its blue domed roof, its open of the last places along the Costa Blanca coastline that lets you see into Spain’s Past. Altea is spit into two parts, the new town and the old town divided by the unattractive N-332 passing through.
Different parts of Altea
On the sea side you have small bars and cafes, ice cream shops and a fantastic new beach. In this area you will also find the Altea Harbour. On the north of the road you have the quant old quarters pointing up to the church on the hill. A visit to Altea without a visit to the old town seems hardly worth while.

Altea’s sea offers an incomparable setting for the practice of water sports, both on its surface and sea beds. Protected by the Serra Galada Natural park, it provides various snorkelling and diving routes. The shallow seabed’s are easily discovered, and although they aren’t usually paid much attention, they offer a great colourful sea full of numerous harmless fish species which roams the Altea waters.
The good news is you don’t need a Spanish NIE number to enjoy Altea.
With just a diving mask, fins and a snorkel tube, you can witness the colourful spectacle of life and experience the feel of the Altea waters. You don’t have to be an athlete or be exceptionally fit, and there is no real age limit. You don’t even have to be a good swimmer, a swim vest can help you float tirelessly on the surface and make safe water excursions.
Sun block is a must in Altea, as time fly’s by when absorbed in such beautiful surrounding, and permits a longer visit to enjoy the contemplation of the precious natural heritage of Altea’s sea beds.
