Things To Do
Guide to Cool Albir
We have selected some of the most cool places to visit in Albir. These can be beautiful cocktail bars, sports activity centres, arts or music venues, coffee shops or restaurants, for you to hang out over this weekend.
Visit the ancient carob tree in Alfas del Pi, which is between 850-950 years old. This tree is older than Spain itself, it was around at the time of the Spanish Inquisition, the discovery and colonisation of the Americas, the expulsion of Jews and Moors, even the Spanish Armada and the Civil War fighting. Now fenced off but still worth paying a visit and exploring the dense woodland around, pathways and streams around.
Head to the centre or Altea’s old town to find this small eclectic bar, which also hosts art displays, movie showings, language exchanges, cooking classes, and the best range of mojitos in town. view on map
An impressive modern art and music foundation, situated on the corner of Albir seafront and the dry river bed. There are always art displays, concerts, and other cultural events taking place daily. view on map
This wonderful former villa used to house the Café del Mar and still retains its cool factor, with a more colourful ethnic look, but you can still sit on raised terraces watching the world go by. A great restaurant too, building a good reputation for international food. view on map
This independent coffee shop has its own coffee bean plantation and a well-regarded Academy, so you can expect these guys to know their stuff. Situated on the old river bed, there is a cool terrace and a large selection of artesanal cakes, breads, smoothies and the chance to buy their own brand of coffee to take home with you. view on map
