A holiday in Alfaz del Pi is a fantastic chance to explore natural attractions of great beauty and historical monuments.
Alfaz del Pi is a town in the province of Alicante in Valencia, whose name derives from Arabic and means "the sown field". With our cheap trips to Alfaz del Pi you can enjoy beautiful natural attractions, such as the ochre mines. There are two archaeological routes you can go on there to discover the remnants of ancient Mediterranean civilisations that worked to extract this material, all as you soak up the surrounding landscape.
One of these routes will take you to the Albir lighthouse, which is still in use today. It’s an easy, 3-mile walk there and back, in a wonderful natural setting that offers some breathtaking views.
Next to the lighthouse you can visit the remains of Torre Bombarda, a watchtower built in the 16th century on the orders of Philip II of Spain. The Valencian coastline was one of the most dangerous in the kingdom due to constant attacks by Barbary corsairs and pirates, hence the need for a watchtower in this strategic location.
If walking isn’t your cup of tea and you’re looking for something a little more relaxed, no worries, because package deals to Alfaz del Pi have something for everyone. You can always grab your swimsuit and sun cream and go down to Albir beach to spend the day working on your tan and enjoying the sea. Around 550 yards long, this blue-flag beach offers crystal clear waters where you’ll no doubt be able to spot fish and small crustaceans.
At sunset, head on over to the Paseo de las Estrellas, which pays homage to stars of Spanish cinema, Hollywood style. Take a stroll along the beach and you’ll find several restaurants and cafés where you can savour the local cuisine, based on fresh fish and all kinds of rice dishes.
