Algar Waterfalls

Algar Falls - Fonts de Algar

Algar Falls - Font de Algar.  The village of Algar is a complete contrast to Benidorm and is a real area of natural beauty. The Waterfalls are such a peaceful place, where you can just sit and relax while dipping your toes in the icy cold water in one of the 7 different pools. For the more adventurous there are areas designated for diving into the cold water, if you dare! The average water temperature summer or winter is around 18ºc.

There are also some lovely souvenir shops on the way up to the entrance of the falls, selling local produce such as Nisperos (medlar fruit) which are grown locally in Callosa.

There are no shortage of restaurants in  Algar with 5 different restaurants all selling excellent typical Spanish meals and snacks, and each have their own swimming pool which you can use free of charge if you eating at their restaurant or for a small fee of around 3€pp.

Although the Algar Waterfalls have been very popular with the Spaniards and local residents for many years, it was the inclusion in one of the episodes of ITVs hit series “Benidorm” that made it famous with the British and those coming on holiday to Benidorm wanting to visit this little village.

So if you want to get away from the hustle & bustle of Benidorm for the day and relax in this secluded paradise or you just want to see where Madge fell into the icy waters from her scooter visit this wonderful place.

Top tip - take some plastic swimming shoes with you as the bottom of the pools is very rocky.  These are available at the shops there but you will find them half the price in Benidorm.

Is it suitable for the disabled and pushchairs? In summer, when the secondary entrance is open you can access the main swimming area with no problem. Outside this period access with a pushchair/wheelchair is complicated because there are many steps and steep inclines.  Obviously this is a mountain setting.
