Parque Natural de la Serra Gelada, El Albir

(4.6/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Rising abruptly from the plain of Benidorn, Alfaz del Pi, and Altea is Parque Natural de la Serra Gelada, one of the most striking examples of Valencian coastal mountains. Walk or bike the well-marked pathways up to the old stone lookout tower or the lighthouse. Enjoy views of the blue Mediterranean, the town of Albir, and the rocky outcrop of Penyal D'Ifach. Get a good look at fossil dunes, caves, and trace fossils as you walk. There are also views of rocky underwater reefs and sandy shores when you look down. There is very little cover on the hike, so bring sunscreen and a hat. Bring your own water as well, as there's none on the trails or at the top.

  • We did the trail and it certainly is worth by the view and the ride itself. Despite being January temperature was perfect to go in t-shirt. It is a simple route to do even with children

  • We walked up to the lighthouse from the beach and saw amazing views. The path is good but above the treeline there is no shelter to speak of, so take plenty of water if it's hot.
  • Here u can experience the Mediterranean nature. Views are spectacular
  • Amazing views and extraordinary path to run through the natural park
  • Amazing view, interesting information about everything you see in the Parc.
