Beautiful clean beach and promenade with bars and restaurants. Spotlessly clean. We walked up the side streets to the church square which had the most amazing views, beautiful sea view restaurants and shops. Not suitable for wheelchair access. Definitely recommend during day or evening.

When you walk through Altea's town you get the breeze from the sea and it invites you to go and see it. It is a beautiful place, where you can sit and enjoy sunny day. It's long,made of pebbles so good footwear is needed. It...More

not sure but would guess so :)
We own a place in cap Negret in front of beach and we heard serious construction and major digging works were going on. I do hope that yet another Marina will not spring up and destroy the loveley NATURAL look... Does anyone know what is happening and are the beach bars gone ? David Grant

Does anyone know if the work on the seafront stops for the summer. Also I'll be staying there for two weeks near the end of June and was wondering if there was any digger/construction work going on at the end of the promenade near the lagoon and to the east.
