For generations locals have known the Algar waterfalls as 'the source of health', and with a rejuvenating dip in its clear pools of cascading water, you'll discover why. Enjoy a drink at the bar at the foot of the falls or dine alfresco in peaceful picnic spots along the riverbank – it's an afternoon to use as you choose.
Although it's only 15km from Benidorm, Algar is a world away in the natural beauty stakes. With cascading waterfalls plunging into pools of pristine water, locals love to cool off with a swim here – and you will too.
Beat the heat by wading in gently or plunge in from the diving ledge – it's super refreshing. You can relax along the shaded, pine-covered banks or set up shop at one of the picnic spots. Or if you prefer, why not grab a drink from the bar at the foot of the falls or stop for a bite to eat. Whatever way you spend your afternoon, you'll be sure to enjoy an area so stunning, it's often used as a setting for both TV and film.
