Fonts del Algar
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. They have become very popular in recent years and have developed into a tourist magnet or trap – you decide!
Once you have successfully parked, follow the other tourists to either of the two entrances. After paying 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. You can exit by following the path uphill behind the first aid station, this takes you to the arboretum, picnic area and the Museum of the environment. The museum houses various exhibits about the local flora and fauna as well as a gift shop!
Further up the hill there is a Dino Park with statues of Dinosaurs and many different species of cactus. There are also lots of restaurants along the road leading to the waterfalls, many of these have swimming pools for diners to use, so take your pick!
