El Albir
Parque natural de la Sierra Helada
El Albir is a municipality with over 9.000 inhabitants on the coast just beyond Benidorm. This place is best known for its Sierra Helada nature park and lighthouse.
There is a parking lot at the entrance to the nature park. From there you walk along the path to the lighthouse "El Faro de Albir". The entire walk goes over asphalt unless you deviate from the main path. Along the way there are a few paths to a viewpoint on the famous rock of Calpé and another to the ocher mines in the nature park.
About 500 meters past the tunnel you are going through is the place called "Boca de la Ballena". With a little luck you'll recognize a mouth of a whale in the rocks.
At the end of the path you will come to the lighthouse. This place is known for seeing dolphins regularly.
