Parks & Nature
The Fonts del Algar or Fonts de L'Algar as it is also known is a series of naturally occurring waterfalls which are only 15km from Benidorm. You can explore the waterfalls and pools at your leisure as they are open from morning until dusk. Walk along beside the river, swim (at your own risk) in the rock pools, dangle your feet in the flowing water, enjoy your picnic or find a quiet spot to sit under the pine trees.

The Fonts of l'Algar are particularly pleasing at the height of summer when it is possible to swim in the fabulous blue lagoons and under the water falls. Diving into the fresh mountain water is extremely envigorating. There are picnic areas and a cafe.

You're going to be spoilt for choice here and the kids will love it. A dolphinarium, parrot show, flamingos, turtles, sea lions, a bat cave (but no Robin), penguins, a children's park, and a galleon. That's right, a galleon, and from inside it you can enjoy a different view of what's going on from under the water.
