Algar Waterfalls

Algarwatfalls, Algar River, wooden cabin holiday rental at Casa del Paso, Bolulla, Algar Waterfalls,El Castell de Guadalest, Altea, Benidorm, Costa Blanca, SpainAt just 5 minutes by car or 20 minutes walking from Casa del Paso you’ll find the impressive waterfalls of Algar.

The Fuentes del Algar should be on the top of your list for places to visit whilst you are on holiday at Casa del Paso. Not only do they offer a sharp contrast to the normal days at the beach, but furthermore they show you a different, very quiet and even cool Spain.

During the hot summer months, the river still has  only 18 Celsius.

 More than just a waterfall
The Algar riverside is a very nicely maintained area with pathways along the various waterfalls and natural pools.

Most of you might perhaps have experienced various kinds of showers at the different water parks around, but its nothing compared to swimming or diving into an ice cold river on a very hot spanish summer day.

Parking is no problem. Plenty of parking lots when you enter the village of Algar. There are two different entrance to the waterfall area. One at the center of the village and another at the very end. So you can pass through Algar and parking grounds at the second entrance.

Absolutely worth it, as the place is well preserved and even life guards are on duty.
Clothing: Take your bathing suit and a pair of good shoes would be useful, as the river is full of stones.
Outside the waterfall area, at the second entrance area, is an additional picnic and barbecue area. Well preserved with a little camping ground.

Apart of the beautiful waterfall area, just at the second entrance two museums are located. The Environment Museum and the Water Museum round up this perfect day trip into the beauty of nature.

Together with a little pathway through a garden of aromatic plants, the entire day should be a nice and recharging some energy. A special excursion can be arranged for you to show you a part of the waterfalls, where nobody goes to, non-touristic, like a hidden secret.

It is 20 minutes walking distance from the Finca and very adventurous, because it includes climbing with ropes,

trekking in the waterfalls and of course: swimming in the ice-could water.

The whole trip takes about 2,5 hours and can be arranged. You need to be fit though to be able to participate!

 

It will be an experience, that you will never forget!
