More about Albir
Albir’s success was closely linked with that of neighbouring Benidorm, and while on holiday in Albir you will see how it became so popular. The main beach is the Playa de Raco de L’Albir, which has a Blue Flag award and is backed by an attractive promenade.
There are plenty of attractions in this delightful coastal town, such as the theme parks at Terra Mitica and Aqualandia with their water sports and restaurant facilities, which make them perfect for a day trip. You can also hop on a coach into Benidorm for its shops and nightlife should you grow weary of the tranquillity.
Nightlife in Albir is pretty subdued, but this is one of the town’s main attractions. It is nice to know that if you want a wild night out then Benidorm is just a short drive away, but in Albir most tourists are happy to have a quiet drink or meal out and admire the view across the sea. The beachside promenade is perfect for an evening stroll with a cooling breeze from the sea. Find out more about Benidorm holidays
