A short drive from Benidorm is the natural park of Serra Gelada (ice mountain) which is a rugged area on the coast, which rises more than 300 meters over Benidorm, Alfàs del Pì and Altea. This is an amazing place for many reasons: Tranquility, nature, fresh air and the most amazing view that could be had anywhere in the whole of eastern Spain.
The main theme parks in the area are Terra Mitica, a sort of “around the world” themed park, Aqualandia, a crazy water slide themed park, Mundomar (which is basically a small version of Sea World), and Terra Natura, a wildlife themed park, all of which have been seen at some point in the Benidorm TV show.
A visit to Calpe, a small, beautiful, quaint and traditional place steeped in History will be very much a highlight on anyone's holiday and visitors come back time and time again to soak up the real atmosphere.
The weather during the summer time around the Costa Blanca can be quite a shock for many people and to escape the heat, there is nothing better than to swim in the crystal clear waters of the Algar, which whatever the weather, always stays very cool and is a great way to recharge the batteries whilst on holiday.
