Parque Natural de la Serra Gelada, El Albir

4.6
#1 of 19 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.

  • This is a lovely walk through to the lighthouse, not too strenuous for the young at heart (70) Places to stop along the way to enjoy the views.  more »
  • We like Nordic Walking and this is a nice walk to the lighthouse! Also a nice walk for geocachers. And a good walk for dog owners.  more »
  • Look forward to my walks to the lighthouse. Always mange a couple of jaunts out during our winter break here. Best on weekdays though, avoid mid morning at weekends, it gets very busy.  more »

  • Incredible place for a walk. Beautiful and not very difficult path. Great landscape, great nature, great views. So close to that city but you can cut off the city rush.
  • Great family friendly hike to the lighthouse. Road is paved, and makes a great run. Worth going there at least once. About 4-5 km hike in total.
  • Nice walk, not too taxing for anyone fairly fit. All tarmacked so no uneven rocky roads or paths unless you want to look at the mines etc. Saw people take segways and mobility scooters up. Allow 1hr 15 ish for a round trip at least.
  • Ah stop... Some job getting up there with a sick head but worth the trek.. steady she goes on the way up.. lovely views. The cross is actually becoming a shrine to lost loved ones with pictures and momentos left by family. Well worth 2 hours of your holiday.
  • Only managed a tiny part of this but will definitely do it all next when it's less slippy underfoot ( we had a lot of rain)
