Les Fonts d’Algar
Les Fonts d’Algar, located just 15 km from Benidorm and 3 km from the urban center of Callosa d’en Sarrià, towards Bolulla, constitute a natural site with a high degree of conservation of ecological wealth and endowed with at the same time, tourist services and environmental education. This space was declared a Wet Zone protected by the Agreement of the Valencian Government of September 10, 2002.
The visit consists of a 1.5 km long circuit along the channel of the Algar river (“cave” in Arabic) to see the landscape resulting from the limestone karst modeling: the spectacular waterfalls; the numerous springs that spring from the rock; the “tolls” (pools of water) where you can take refreshing baths with pure and crystalline waters, formerly considered as a “source of health”; the old dam, the imposing canal and the centuries-old ditches still in use today.
The services aimed at facilitating and enriching the visit with environmental education resources are the following: Tourist Office, parking areas, toilets, first aid, the Arboretum, the picnic area and the 2nd category camping.
To all this we must add the Dino Park Algar, as well as the 5 restaurants that exist in the immediate vicinity, where you can enjoy the typical gastronomy of the area.
