We stayed here in January 2017 and also two years earlier. The camp site cannot be found on trip advisor. A great little site, perhaps the plots are a bit close together. All nationalities getting on like a house on fire. Clean facilities, things going on in the evening. Lots to do in the area. A great beach with a... More

Such a beautiful spot in such a beautiful place. Woke up every morning to the rising sun over the ocean. If you have a chair and beach shoes, you will be all set to take in this beautiful beach in Spain. Warm enough to swim in October and no crowds to contend with.

Altea is a delightful little town and it's beaches are pristine. A must visit for a stroll and something to eat or drink along the promenade.

Lovely beach not so populated in June that it felt crowded, water was clear and we found loungers and umbrellas (at a reasonable price) available. Beach just across boardwalk and road to restaurants and cafes so we would walk over after a swim for lunch and then return to relax and then swim, all very pleasant. No difficulty with parking...

having so many pebbles has probably been a good thing for this beach/area because it has kept it a very select area with lots of fab eateries and lovely bars.
