It is no secret that one of my favorite Spanish towns is Altea. Around 30 minutes from Benidorm, and just over an hour from Alicante, Altea is a gorgeous town located right by the ocean that, so far at least, hasn’t become too cheesy or overly touristy.
The people who live in Altea are friendly and lovely too.
A small town overall, although it does stretch quite a way, Altea is a pleasant place to take a stroll (either by the ocean or up into the old town itself) and as for photographs, Altea is a photographer’s paradise. What with the town’s gorgeous white buildings, the lovely squares, the beautiful hilltop church and, of course, those incredible ocean views.
Here are just a few photographs of Altea my father or I took just a few months ago, that I thought would be perfect for our Featured Photographs section, as they really do illustrate what you are likely to see if you visit this picturesque Spanish town.
I will also be in Altea again next week for another month’s holiday and I am sure I will be taking an awful lot more. It really is that lovely.
