Waterfall Wildlife Area
Dive into natural turquoise pools surrounded by tropical flowers at Fonts de l'Algar, a verdant natural park known for its spectacular waterfalls. Along the 1.5 km (.9 mi) circuit, you can traverse a sun-dappled riverbed, get a shower under waterfalls, and leap from wooden diving boards into refreshing blue swimming holes shaded by lush vegetation. The stone path and steps can be slippery, so bring water sandals with grip. Pack a lunch to enjoy at the picnic tables surrounded by lush tropical plants or stop at one of the nearby restaurants for some local delicacies. A visit to Fonts de l'Algar represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Callosa d'En Sarria vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • For only 4 euros you acces a beautifull spot. We went in May (end of the month) and there was not that much people. So we had all the place to relax, swim, sun as we wanted. Great experience and views...  more »

  • Loved this place... so amazing to see so much water in an area that is predominantly so arid. The falls are well maintained with many different areas to explore. You can swim under some of the falls a...  more »

  • The nature is nice, but it's not too impressive. Some places to walk in the water, not too easy to swim. Too much current for small children alone. Costs money to get in.
  • It is a beautiful place, but do not expect too much. It is a small stream that happens to make a small waterfall. Lots of stair, so do not take a baby stroller.
  • So much fun with family the water was freezing.100% recommend it
  • It's a steep road leading up to the falls, an if you park at the first car park the walk is about 5 minutes. The further up you go and closer to the Dino park you can park on the road and side road for free if you get there early enough. But it's only 3 Euros to park. The Dino Parc car park is free, but it's a walk down to the falls and in the heat it's best to park as close as possible. The waterfalls are great for kids. It's rue there is not much to do other than walk through running water and over slippery rocks but that's the point really. It's not a man made adventure playground. It's a series of waterfalls. You can keep on going all the way for over 1km and there are less and less people past the main diving in spot. Some of the rocks seems to have moved around a bit and can be quite sharp so it's a good idea to wear smoothing on your feet that fit securely and are waterproof. We wore crocs and they allowed us to walk around the river bed and the side risk fairly well. Take something to eat and drink. It's surprising how wading through cold water can make you hungry very quickly. There are places to eat but they seemed to be quite busy when we went. Having said that some of the restaurants did have parking for free if you ate there too.
  • Very pretty place with lovely cool mountain water to bathe in. Lots of walking to do and much of it uphill. There is a small cafe and souvenir shop at the gates. Plenty of car parking close to the entrance.
