El Albir

Travel Guide

Enjoy the familiar atmosphere of Albir, relax on the beach and discover its important film festival.

Albir is a small town in the province of Alicante belonging to the municipality of Alfaz del Pi, between Benidorm and Altea, where you can enjoy a great holiday in the sun and on the beach. Choose to spend a few days on holiday in Albir and bring the whole family along: you’re sure to have a fantastic time!

You can start your trip in Racó de l’Albir, a wide, stone beach that can boast blue flag certification for cleanliness and services on offer. As well as working on your tan as you take in the Peñón de Ifach on the one side and the Sierra Helada nature park on the other, you can also try out the many activities the beach offers, so book now and take advantage of our offers for cheap trips to Albir for windsurfing, catamaran sailing or diving.

Another must-see sight is the Sierra Helada Nature Park, where you’ll find the Punta del Albir lighthouse. Enjoy a fascinating 45-minute trek and, as you walk, take in the spectacular cliffs and discover the stunning views from the various viewpoints you’ll find as you reach the lighthouse.

The busiest area of Albir is the promenade, Paseo de las Estrellas, which goes all the way to Altea. As is suggested by the name, meaning the promenade of the stars, this place is central to one of the most important events in the town, the Alfaz del Pi Film Festival, whose winners are immortalised in the form of a star on the pavement. Some of those honoured over the 28 years the festival has been held are Pedro Almodóvar, Álex de la Iglesia and Silvia Abascal. However, this town isn’t just known for its daytime fun, but during the summer nights you can also enjoy the promenade, with its artisan craft market and festive atmosphere.

As you can see, Albir is a perfect destination for a family holiday, so choose one of our package deals to Albir and enjoy some wonderful days at your own pace in this town in Alicante.

Sad but not good
"The only good thing was the staff we can not recommend anything else. They have our sympathy. Our 3 day of rest turned into a 3 day trip about to find a comfortable seat & restaurant. We were the only occupants & no wonder nothing like the pictures on Hotels.com."
