What to see in l’Alfàs del Pi
Tourism has driven the development of this pretty town on the Costa Blanca. Enveloped in nature and bursting with culture, l’Alfàs del Pi is a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy a relaxing stay.
If you’d like to get to know l’Alfàs del Pi, your first port of call should be its beaches. Its most famous stretch is El Albir, a pebbly beach that doesn’t tend to get too crowded and is a lovely place to just breathe in the Mediterranean. As you might expect given the multicultural population, this town is twinned with Oslo in a symbol of friendship and integration.
And that’s just the start. You can then head to charming coves with their crystalline waters where you can go diving to discover the marvels below the surface. A landscape embraced by the beauty of Serra Gelada natural park. The mountains here are scaled with hiking routes that will lead you deep into nature where you can enjoy vistas that will pop back into your memory time and time again.
L’Alfàs del Pi also has a great deal of culture, which you can experience for yourself every July with the International Cinema Festival. The festival boasts 20 years of history awarding the Faro de Plata prizes to famous actors. A little Hollywood, the town even has its very own Walk of Fame where you can find the names of some of the greatest actors who have received awards. The Walk is a popular spot among tourists and residents alike and events and film screenings are held here. In the summer, it becomes a market of artisans.
Another popular sight in this sun-kissed destination is Faro del Albir, an abandoned lighthouse sitting in Serra Gelada natural park. This is a lovely place to take a walk as well as explore the ancient ochre mines on the edges of the park. Make sure you wear appropriate footwear and watch where you put your feet.
