Seeking a peaceful beach destination for your 2020 holiday? Take a trip to Albir and you’ll find plenty of ways to kick back and relax; it’s got everything from its scenic surroundings to its alluring national parks. While bustling Benidorm is just around the corner, Albir offers a glimpse at Spain’s quieter side. Its iconic neighbour might be jam-packed with neon-lit bars and endless water sports, but it’s Albir that has managed to retain much of its old-world charm, making it a firm favourite for a family getaway.
If you’d rather embrace a quieter setting by day and an all-night party vibe come sundown, Albir is the ideal destination. While the small-town feel of this stunning resort serves as the ultimate chance to unwind, it’s easy to get a taxi to Benidorm’s busy centre when you’re in search of drinks and dancing. It’s unsurprising then, that Albir appeals to everyone from young families to older couples and those seeking group getaways. Whether you’re heading off on a quiet trip with your little ones, or looking for an all inclusive beach holiday that gives you the best of both worlds, a 2020 holiday in Albir should be top of your list.

Aside from its beautifully bright-coloured buildings and stunning vistas, Albir offers plenty to keep everyone entertained. The main town, L’Alfas del Pi, is set inland from the beach and stretches along the coast. Take a leisurely stroll and you’ll find a great mixture of shops, restaurants and bars. Further out, you’ll discover scenic olive groves and hamlets, set against the backdrop of the magnificent hills that lead through to the nearby town of Alta.
If you’re looking to embrace nature on your getaway, head straight for the nature park adjacent to Albir’s beach. Based around the mountain of Sierra Helda, this spot is ideal for hikers and bikers seeking out Spain’s native wildlife as well as a spot of exercise. Follow the clifftop trail to the old lighthouse and when you’ve arrived at the top, you’ll be rewarded with views of the town’s multi-coloured boats bobbing along the water.
Albir’s main draw is its golden sandy beach, a scenic stretch that offers the perfect spot for sunbathing, swimming and relaxing. Awarded Blue Flag Status, it’s no surprise that visitors flock to its safe shores. You’ll find sun loungers dotted around, as well as a number of activities to keep everyone entertained. There’s a designated water sports centre on the beach, offering lessons on everything from parasailing and ocean-kayaking to waterskiing and doughnut-riding.
