A wide paved walkway makes it easy to get to the lighthouse. We take a walk from Altea every other week just to enjoy a nice walk with a fantastic view.

Visited this park again and took an alternate route to have a look at the red ocre mine works , pathways are fairly rugged so not for everyone and some steep climbs in places but well worth taking a look.

I didn't read any reviews before i did this, i just fancied doing it. I got the train from Benidorm up to Albir (15mins) and found myself heading for the mast by going directly up the north side (very steep and rocky for 30 mins)...More

A lovely way to spend a morning. The views over the bay are beautiful. The lighthouse was closed when we got there due to a national holiday but it didn't detract from the views.

The walk to the lighthouse is a pleasant diversion for a couple of hours , not hard going as the gradients are reasonably gentle great views , probably best done on a cooler day.

Taxi is around €8, bus to Albir around €1.50 or walk. Walk is beautiful, but not easily marked out once you go past the benedo cross. It’s also a fairly strenuous walk so not suitable for young children.

Yes as said many times above it is totally free if you don't fancy the walk up to the start you can always get a taxi up, but always take drinks.
