Altea is located a ten minute drive North of Benidorm (ca.10 km), about 1 hour from Alicante along the N-332 and is one of the most memorable coastal towns of the Costa Blanca, retaining its own unique Spanish charm in spite of its increasing tourism and popularity. It lies directly by the sea in the midst of a beautiful bay and is surrounding by rugged mountains – really picturesque! The name comes from the Moorish ‘Althaya’ which means ‘health to all’.
