The beach has umbrellas and deck chairs rentals, showers and footbaths, toilets and rescue service. For its beauty, quality of service and cleanliness of the place, the Albir Beach is usually awarded every year with the Blue Flag of the European Union.
From Altea, the beach is skirted with a beautiful and lively promenade, also called Paseo de las Estrellas, due to the film festival held in the town, allowing you to make pleasant walks from one municipality to the other in just 20 minutes.
