Altea ~ Costa Blanca,Valencia
There is a very large shopping center with many lovely shops and restaurants.
These include Cap Negret, Playa de la Roda and Cap Blanc.
Along the pretty yacht harbor are the beaches of Pueblo Macarat which is a pebbly beach extending to the beach of Albir.
The main beach of the town is Playa de la Roda which is narrow and pebbly so not great for those who enjoy sandy beaches.
It’s probably one of the reasons the town still retains it’s Spanish air and traditional way of life.
This was and still is a Bohemian area which has long been the haunt of artists. On your climb you will see many small art galleries and craft shops.
