One of the most spectacular corners of l´Alfàs del Pi is, without a doubt, its shoreline. El Racó de l´Albir is located in Altea Bay, between the slopes of Serra Gelada and the impressive Peñon de Ifach. From this particular, pebble stone beach we can enjoy one of the most spectacular views of Alicante´s coast. The quality of its waters, services and other elements that make up its shore have maintained the Blue Flag in every edition of this award for quality that has been handed out annually since 1987 by the European Foundation for Environmental Education to beaches and ports that accomplish certain environmental standards and for their facilities. Throughout the year, the beach front is a constant flow of tourists and residents that every day go to the beach to enjoy the marvellous views of the bay and to walk along the Paseo de las Estrellas promenade, where the names of the awarded artists in l´Alfàs del Pi Film Festival are engraved in stone and bronze on the floor. At the beginning of Racó de l´Albir Beach you can find a tourist office and the impressive sculpture of an anchor titled “Asentamiento” (settlement) made by the artist Jorge Castro, with various cultural activities taking place around it in summer, part of the Estiu Festiu festival. There is also the Artisan´s Fair there every summer.
The bay´s seabed is part of Serra Gelada Natural Park´s protected area and is home to a great variety of animal species along with an extensive meadow of Posidonia Oceanica, an essential plant for marine ecosystems. It is a privilege to sail its waters and use its environmental buoys. This makes its waters a perfect setting for scuba diving or snorkelling and for other sports such as kayaking, paddle surf, sailing or windsurf.
