Talking about the Costa Blanca is undoubtedly talking about one of the most impressive routes from a tourist point of view. There are many examples to choose from.
One of them, of course, is Benidorm, but what if we were to tell you that just 15 kilometres away there is a unique enclave? Well, with the help of our collaborators from Victoria Cars, because they know it better than anyone, we are going to take a tour of the Fuentes del Algar.
How can you get to Fuentes del Algar?
The truth is that it is quite easy to get there. And all thanks to the extraordinary signposting that is provided, which means that you can literally say that you can’t get lost.
To start, we have to get to Callosa d’en Sarrià. Once there, just follow the signs. In any case, it must be said that although there have always been two clearly differentiated accesses, the current situation related to Covid-19 has meant that only one of them can be used.
This access is signposted as the main entrance and is located right next to Les Fonts Restaurant. The second access mentioned above has become a way out of the site. In this way, everything is in line with current regulations and complies with all the safety measures laid down by the competent authorities.
What do Fuentes del Algar have to offer?
First of all, let’s take a look at what this spot in the heart of the Costa Blanca really is. In reality, the Fuentes del Algar are nothing more than a succession of natural pools and waterfalls that are a marvel for the senses.
Both spring in a totally natural way from the galleries that are found underground. A place, as our friends at Victoria Cars have already certified, perfect for cooling off on those days when temperatures are high.
Visit the spectacular botanical garden
There is no doubt that this is one of its main attractions. A botanical garden known as the Arboretum area. A spectacular space in which visitors will be able to find more than a hundred planters in which a total of 200 native plants have been grown, such as camomile, rosemary, thyme and orange blossom.
This flora is not only interesting from an aesthetic point of view, but also from a cultural point of view, as the history of these plants takes us back several centuries.
Unique swimming pools
Needless to say, the swimming pools, waterfalls and those areas where water is the protagonist are the most interesting for visitors.
There, on those hot Alicante summer days, anyone who wants to can cool off in crystal clear waters that shine with their own light. A fact that we can attest to by looking at the snapshots of the people who work with us at Victoria Cars. A unique space in which to merge with nature and which, seen in perspective, has little or nothing to envy to the most tropical landscapes.
All the comforts imaginable
It really cannot be any other way when we talk about the Fuentes del Algar. More than anything else because over the years this whole area has been carefully looked after with the utmost care. So much so that we find a space that is perfectly conditioned for anyone who wants to visit it.
In addition to the classic areas where you can have a picnic and recharge your batteries, there are other areas where the youngest members of the family can enjoy a bit of fun.
There are also toilet areas, areas where you can find security personnel and first aid areas where you can attend to any contingency.
Last but not least, everything that has to do with the Covid-19 regulations is implemented with the utmost rigour.
- The use of face masks is compulsory in any of the areas we mentioned just a few moments ago.
- The safety distance must also be respected throughout the Fuentes del Algar.
- You should always drive on the right so that contact with people does not take place under uncontrolled conditions.
A safe and unique place worth visiting as it can be a perfect excuse to spend an extraordinary day and take some unique snapshots.
