Costa Blanca Resorts - Albir

Albir - Sandwiched between the towns of Benidorm and Altea on the northern Costa Blanca, Spain, the small town of Albir is popular with holidaymakers who prefer a less frenetic location. In contrast with Benidorm which is a fast and lively resort, Albir is somewhat quieter but still has some great beaches and a variety of facilities.

Albir is located in an area known as Alfaz del Pi and was originally called 'L'Alfas de Polop' (Alfas means 'sown land'), it was settled by the Moors during the Arab occupation of Spain and they developed agriculture in the region, growing almonds, olives, grape vines and various fruits. Albir became a municipality in its own right in 1836.

Albir grew with the success of Benidorm in the 1960's and 1970's as that town became one of the most visited coastal locations in Europe, and Albir itself became an established resort.

Albir's main beach, Playa de Racó de L'Albir is a fine award winning 'Blue Flag' beach, and it enjoys stunning views across to Calpe and the Peñon de Ifach, the beach is backed by the Paseo de Estreles (promenade) a popular place for a stroll. Sports enthusiasts can check out Albir Golf where cricket and football is played as well as golf. Albir is also famous for its film festival held in July.

The attractions of Benidorm are within easy reach of the resort and such well known theme parks as Terra Mitica and Aqualandia will no doubt be on the list of things to do on a trip to Albir.
