Away from the madding crowds of Benidorm, the peaceful and charming town of Altea offers plenty of amenities for those who prefer a less frenetic beach holiday, without the glitz, glamour and gusto of the custom-made resorts. Of all the towns on the Costa Blanca, Altea is probably the one that remains the least exploited and overdeveloped; daily life remains largely uninterrupted by tourists and huge hotels have yet to be built. Altea has a long jetty and attractive walkway fronting a calm stretch of shoreline with pebbly beaches encircling the town. The town's central Plaza de la Iglesia leads onto narrow cobblestone streets and offers beautiful Mediterranean views. Altea is a pretty coastal town, promising a lovely combination of local culture and seaside activities.
