Albir in Spain. The small resort of Albir in the Alfaz del Pí area is located between the tourist magnet Benidorm and the artist village Altea in Spain. It is ideal for those who want an alternative to the busy beaches of Benidorm, but who still enjoy enjoying the sun and beach life, and all the other amenities of a wonderfully good resort.
Albir is situated midway between two international airports, to the south there is Alicante International airport and to the north there is Valencia international airport. The modern town is spacious and clean, with lots of lovely wide tree-lined streets to stroll along in the evening or sit out on a pavement café and watch the world go by. Albir is a popular relaxing holiday destination, perfect for families.
The palm-lined beach promenade, which runs from Albir to Altea, has been nicknamed by the locals the “Star-Promenade”, because in its ground are embedded stars with the names of all the artists who have been awarded in the Cinema Festival.
Thanks to its pleasant climate, with mild winters and dry warm summers, outdoor activities can be held in Albir all year round. Accordingly, there are the Cinema Festival, the Jazz Festival, established in October, and furthermore there are numerous concerts and dance performances with artists from around the world.
With Albir on the Costa Blanca as a starting point, you can experience most things. Everywhere you find castles and some are restored and transformed into wonderful museums, while others are ruins that tell their story. Tourist offices and guide books are a must if you want to get around the area, or better yet, travel with a professional tour guide and experience the history up close. Spain is the land where history lives, the country that Christoffer Columbus linked with the “new world”, the cradle of modern times.
