Unlike many other Costa Blanca towns Albir has been carefully planned virtually from scratch.
The resort centreOnly one or two of the buildings are over five storeys high, its avenues are broad and tree lined, and joy of joy, there is plenty of parking. There is a sense of space and an unhurried atmosphere make getting around a pleasure.
Hotels and Apartments are modern and limited but all are extremely good and offer excellent value for money. The clientele is International.
Out and About
A holiday in one of Albir’s modern hotels and apartments puts visitors in easy reach of some of the Costa Blanca’s best destinations.
Altea, with its charming old town packed with restaurants and artist’s workshops, is just a short journey from Albir, while its busy harbour is quite literally a seafront stroll away.
Albir’s climate, hot and dry in summer and nearly always dry and mild in winter, means that whatever the time of year its fiestas are celebrated outdoors in comfort.
The main festivals are:
March 19th – San Jose
May (1st weekend) – Fiesta de la Creuta
July (1st week) – Albir Film Festival
August 1st to 15th – Summer Festival
November – Honor del Santisimo Cristo del Buen Acierto
December – Fiestas de la Purisima.
Albir beachWith almost 600 metres of clean safe beach, there’s always plenty of room to stretch out. The Playa de Racó de l’Albirhas been awarded the prestigious EU Blue Flag classification, denoting its excellent facilities and cleanliness, every year since 2001.
The beach is comprised of very fine smooth pebbles and bathers can take in the views of the Sierra Helada nature reserve to one side, and to the other, the famous Peñon de Ifach, the massive outcrop of rock by calpe.
