If you're off on holidays to Spain, the picturesque little village of Albir is the place to go. Why? Because Albir holidays have it all - beautiful, wide pebble-beaches overlooking the azure calm of the Mediterranean, plenty of peaceful paths and secluded mountainsides to walk and cycle, and a serene atmosphere with no touristy hubbub. Being strategically sandwiched between the bustle of Benidorm and Altea, you're never far from the crazy Costa Blanca!
Albir is probably the best sunny venue to base yourself from on your Costa Blanca holidays, whether you're a party animal or peace-lover, and with more here to keep a bon-vivant occupied, you'll never want to leave! It's a mere two hours flight to Alicante Airport from the UK, and a short drive after that. Sun, sea and sangria, here we come!

Top Albir Hotels
Albir's summer temperatures soar to 40° Celsius, and it's never exactly cool here - so pack your Factor 30 whenever you're coming, even January can be above 20° Celsius. The lush, warm breezes from the Med ensure that you're never sweltering, and if you're too hot, just stay in your hotel for a dip in the swimming pool instead!
The beach itself is an award-winning, pristine white mixture of pebble and sand, with the great grassy mountain of Sierra Gelada overlooking. The verdant path over the mountain is worth a walk just to reach the white Lighthouse, which protrudes from the top of the cliff overlooking the coast, offering spectacular sunset views of the entire Costa Blanca.
