Set among the mountains in the Guadalest Valley is the charming tourist town of Guadalest.

Admire the far-reaching views of the valley and, if you’re feeling energetic, go for a walk in the surrounding countryside. Relax afterwards in one of the several cafes, bars, and restaurants. Take care on the winding mountain roads that lead to and from the village. Arrange to visit Guadalest Valley and other attractions in Alicante using our Alicante trip itinerary builder.
