Waterfall Nature / Park
Located in a wetland protected by the Valencian government, Las Fuentes del Algar is a conservation area known for its untouched beauty. Take a walk on the 1.5 km (0.93 mi) hike through the cave ("algar" is the Arabic word for cave) to be sprayed by the waterfalls and springs. Wear a swimsuit to keep your clothes from getting wet, and enjoy a dip in the pools, or "tolls," along the way. There is an on-site tourist office, restrooms, and educational facilities, as well as five restaurants nearby. Include the arboretum and cactus garden in your visit for more local natural wonders.

  • 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.
