Welcome to the Beautiful Small Resort Town, of Playa Del Albir, this gem of a town is located between Benidorm, 6 kilometres to the south and Altea, 3 kilometres to the north. It is ideally suited to holidaymakers looking for an alternative to busy Benidorm, but offering easy access to all the Costa Blanca has to offer.
When the Local Town Hall with the help of its Architects, designed how the Modern Albir would look, they made some very good decisions, they took care to create wide boulevards lined with trees, providing the spacious atmosphere that is so well known throughout Spain. Indeed, Albir is known as one of the Costa Blanca’s Crown Jewels.
Albir’s Beach is called “Playa De Racó De L’Albir”, and is Approximately 590 Meters Long, continually receiving the Coveted Blue Flag Award Annually, since 2001.
The Seafront here is Breathtaking, offering sweeping views of Altea, and Calpe’s Famous Peñon de Ifach. The Beach is pebbly, but beautifully maintained, the sun beds are numerous, and during the summer months, the beach is protected/patrolled by Lifeguards.
Each July the Town hosts a Film Festival, which is well known throughout Spain, and a Huge Screen is erected on the Beach where Films are shown from 10PM onwards.
During July and August each evening, a Craft Market sets up along the Beach Front. Here you will find locally produced goods, such as Paintings, Leather Goods and the occasional Spanish Sweet Treat! Albir, is also home to a Typical Spanish Market, which takes place every Sunday in the Centre of Town. The Market opens at 9am and closes at 2pm. Here you will find anything from Shoes to Beach Wear. If you’re staying in an Apartment this is an excellent time to stock up on some Superb Local Produce. You will find a variety of Locally Grown Fruit and Vegetables and, some Great Spanish Hams.
The “Sierra Helada”, or “Frozen Mountain” dominates the town. This has been declared a Spanish National Park and offers a Stunning walk to the Town’s very own Lighthouse.
Please remember, that should you wish to take the walk, to take bottled water with you, and don’t forget your Camera.
You can access the park by walking along the Cami del Faro, the best times to visit are mornings, and late afternoons, to avoid of course, the intense heat of the Summer Sun.
Modern Albir, caters for its Residents and Holidaymakers alike. The town is home to approximately 5,000 full time residents, most of whom are Northern European. The whole area has a cosmopolitan ‘feel’ about it, and this is reflected in its Bars and Restaurants. Don’t be surprised to find a Scandinavian Bar next to a Dutch Restaurant. The Seafront is lined with a variety of sophisticated Bars and Restaurants, all of which can offer anything from a Simple Beer, to a Delicious Cocktail or a Superb Lunch or Dinner.
Albir’s nightlife tends to be more low key than its famous neighbour, however, the choice of Restaurants and Bars opening until the small hours, will not disappoint you.
The Town has a choice of Hotels ranging from Large and Modern, to Small and Cosy. Nothing in Albir is too large as the town has a law forbidding, any high rises to be constructed.
Albir is also home to a large variety of shops, ranging from Clothing Boutiques to Supermarkets. The Giant Spanish Supermarket Chain “Mercadona” has a large supermarket located more or less, at the entrance to the Town as does Lidl.
Albir is also home to a Golf Driving Range, and its very own Cricket Pitch which is located in the very Centre of the Town, just off the Boulevard, Los Musicos (know as the dry river bed).
The facilities were created in 1995, in co-operation with the Local Town Hall and playing on a Golf Driving Range also provided by the Town Hall. Albir is home to one of Spain’s most successful Cricket Clubs, Sport Alfas, the official name of the ground is the Woodbridge Oval! The Cricket Team regularly hosts games against other Teams visiting from the UK. During the week, the facility becomes a golf driving range.
On the other side of Town, next to the Large Mercadona Supermarket, you will find a purpose built Football Pitch. The Town’s Local Footbal Team is called “FC Orange”, which is a Team made up of Dutch and British Players.
Albir also has a significant Roman Arkeyerlogical site, which really came into its own back in 2011, when a Team of visiting archaeologists discovered that the areas was once home to a wealthy Roman settlement, dating all the way back to the 4th Century AD. The Town Hall has transformed the site into a major visitor attraction, including Glass Walkways to enable the visitor to see underfoot and a suspended roof.
The site is located opposite the towns new Cultural Centre which is called the “Frax Foundation”. Well worth a visit at any time of the year. The centre regularly plays host to an array of Spain’s National Treasures.
Recent Exhibitions have included, a Photographic Display of Spain through its Turbulent Civil War Years, and a Bizarre Sculpture Exhibition, which was also Located on the Street.
Although only a small town, Albir is home to such a vast wealth of facilities, beautiful scenery, sophisticated shopping and dining, and is also one of the most Cosmopolitan Populations in Spain. No wonder there is so much here.
Now there are times when you may get the urge to swap Albir’s Tranquillity, for some serious Benidorm Shopping, Eating, Drinking or Partying. Then you should know how to get around.
You can make your way from Albir to Benidorm by Bus, or by Taxi. Bus Stops are conveniently located along Albir’s main roads and the Town is served by an Excellent Bus Service. Look out for the number 10 bus which runs every 15 minutes throughout the day to Benidorm. The price of a single ticket is 1 Euro 40.
The Journey takes approximately 35 minutes and you will of course know when you are in Benidorm, simply by looking up at the High Rises. The same Bus will also whisk you to the Beautiful Spanish White Town of Altea, within 15 minutes.
A ride from the Taxi Rank at the Avenida de L’Albir, which is located opposite the Consum Supermarket to Benidorm, takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes, and will cost anywhere between €8 and €11, depending of course which part of the city you wish to visit.
Then return to the tranquillity which is Albir, and Relax.
