A couple of days ago I wrote a post with the best beaches in Denia and today I would like to focus on the best that are in another Alicante town, specifically in Altea. It is a municipality that is also on the Mediterranean coast and has about 25,000 inhabitants, a figure that multiplies when the summer months arrive. There you find several places of interest such as churches, a promenade or the old part of the city, but its beaches are, without a doubt, its main tourist attraction.

Among its services you can find a tourist office, parking, buses, showers, walkways, hammocks, umbrellas and the Yacht Club, which is only 200 meters away.
