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.

Algar Falls, swimming pool

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.
