Travel and Day Trips from Benidorm
Along the coast, a visit to Altea is a must. From Mascarat point set in a bay Altea nestles in an inlet between the sea and the mountains. With the blue and white dome of its Parish church the village extends over a rocky promontory which ends in the Mediterranean. Beautiful little coves dot the coastline with the same pristine white charm as the village itself.
Finally, Villajoyosa (or Vila Joiosa as it is known in Valencian language) stands out as particularly special and anyone who visits will long to return. Its typical Mediterranean light, and the layout of the old town, with tiny streets reminiscent of bygone days, and the little houses on the port painted in vibrant colours, in typical Mediterranean style are a tourist´s delight. Don´t miss a visit to the fish market and try the amazing local seafood.
