  • Who in Altea to the market is going, can see that a river flows into the sea. That river is the Algar, he has a length of about 20 km and rises to the flank of the mountain Serra del Ferrer. At the height of Callosa d'en Sarria (about 15 may from Benidorm) there are waterfalls in the River, Las Fuentes del Algar. It pays to visit this park, there is a nicely made with lots of greenery, plants and fruits such as bananas, MEDLARS (nispero) and oranges. Please note: there must be the necessary steps gemeesterd. But, don't worry, there are plenty of restaurants to rest.

  • Not be that I imagined when I went to visit this spot; Perhaps some trees and various natural sources. Well, it wasn't quite the opposite. I found wrapped with trees of roots that protrude the land and with the air and aroma to green. A breath of healthy and delicious at the same time. The most surprising thing was to reach those cliffs and jets of water where you can sit, even swim (I've not done before; it is more to enjoy the place). A heavenly place where sit and hear the sound of water is a delight and of course go all over the place which is worth seeing.

  • Somewhere nice and pretty, at least in winter that no many people. A little more than one kilometer maybe marked ride is waterfalls and sources of the births of the rivers. Worst of all the way. All business mounted and designed to remove everything it can to the visitor. Not knowing the site going climbing with the car, no escape now, because the attraction itself has no public parking. Everything is business of parking (€2 per car) and then charge you for entering the place, 4 euros in winter, which in my opinion, is too much for what it is in itself the "attraction". I think that there are sites natural more beautiful, better and free. In which place is better appreciated.

  • 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.
  • Great place for the family! Waterfalls are impressive and plenty of areas for the kids and adults to walk in the water / go swimming ... Make sure you wear crocs or similar to go in the water with as you will be walking over lots of rocks both in and out of the water!
  • Beautiful nature, but way too much people when we were there on a thursday in the end of august. Water felt pretty cold, probably something around 15* C.
  • Picturesque, refreshing. A wonderful family day out. Bring a picnic. They have restaurants, but we always bring a picnic with us.
