Parque Natural de la Serra Gelada, El Albir

4.6
#2 of 14 in Things to do in L'Alfas del Pi
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. Plan my trip to L'Alfas del Pi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Walked from the tourist information office in Albir to the lighthouse, a good four miles there and back. The track is concreted and fully accessible. The incline would be manageable for most walkers i...  more »
  • Loved this place soo much! Fantastic view over the ocean and charming old town with a really sweet church!  more »
  • Nice walk with breathtaking views of Albir, Altea and Calpe. If not practiced hiker was this to do well on paved bike/pedestrian path. Upon your return, in parking lot there was a window of a car smashed!!!! Let so no stuff in plain view in the trunk of your car!!

  • Nice nature reserve, good information boards about things to see. It also has some nice bike trails on the Alfa's del Pi side where you can bike (mountain bike or walk) over to the Benidorm side. A bit rocky a few part, but overall easy tracks
  • Fantastic views. Fairly easy walking, I suffer severe COPD and as long as you go quietly it's fine. Take a drink
  • David's coach trips to alter and the mountains were brilliant. Wine tasting full lunch with wine .value for money what a great day out.
  • Nice boat trip, with lovely views over to Benidorm. Small cafe on island walked to the top lo take pictures we were attacked by many of the Seagulls very aggressive scary for young children. They were Nesting so that might be the reason.
  • Excellent views and excellent roads. If you're wanting some great scenery shots then this is your place. If you're really lucky you may even see wildlife
