Visit the market at Altea with time to visit the old town if required. Altea is one of the most beautiful and traditional fishing villages on the Costa Blanca. It is protected by the Sierra Bernia mountain range and receives the flow of the River Algar. The old town of Altea, has now been declared a world heritage site. The parish church is at the summit crowned by one of the finest blue domes in the region, tiled with glazed ceramics.From here you can enjoy the most fabulous views of the Costa Blanca in both directions, or enjoy a drink in one of the attractive little cafe bars dotted around the square.
Then off to Monroes Carvery at Moraira for the best, British carvery ever - the puddings are to die for!
Calpe is the highest point on the Costa Blanca - Similar to the rock seen in Close Encounters, it’s a volcanic rock that rises 300m / 990ft above sea level and is joined to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. It used to be mistaken by mariners for the rock of Gibraltar. It is possible to walk right to the top. From here on a clear day it is possible to see the Island of Ibiza. Finish off your day with a coffee on the port and watch the fishermen bringing in their catch of the day.
