Albir is one of the most international places in Spain. More than 53% of the population is not Spanish. And it shows. You can leave your Spanish dictionary at home!
On the map, Albir is between Benidorm and Altea and this is also so in atmosphere. It is not as noisy and high-rise as Benidorm, yet is just a bit livelier than Altea.
From the promenade of Albir , with Altea to the left, is a great view towards the large rock off the coast of Calpe. And right towards Benidorm is the natural wonders of the "Sierra Helada".
High above the Mediterranean, with steep cliffs, are fields that separate the bay of Altea from the Bay of Benidorm. At the foot of these cliffs are a number of small coves and sandy beaches offering privacy.
A must for visitors of Albir is the lighthouse. You can exercise in the clear waters of Albir by surfing, diving or catamaran sailing.
On the beach of Albir a blue flag constantly flutters. The Blue Flag is an international environmental award that is granted because the water and Albir beach are clean and safe.
