Las Fuentes Del Algar is a fantastic day trip if you are staying on the Costa Blanca, Spain. They are located on the outskirts of the village of Callosa d'En Sarria, aprox 15km outside of the resort.

Las Fuentes Del Algar is a natural beautyspot that attracts thousands of visitors over the Summer months - both holiday makers and residents.

There are plenty of shady areas to relax, but jumping into the freezing cold running water offers the most fun. There are attendants and first aiders for the safety of visitors.

The main waterfall is more than 15 metres high with a clear stream of pure water tumbling down through the rocks into an impressive pool. The waterfalls cascade down the impressive grey and green rocks.  Higher up you can dive off the waterfalls and the freezing water will take your breath away. Visitors can also enjoy a 1.5 kilometre walk through the Algar riverbed to enjoy all the waterfalls, springs and natural pools.

The waterfalls are great to visit at any time of year, although the icy cold water is particularly refreshing on those long, hot summer days. There is also a lifeguard on duty in the summer and at Easter. You can either walk along the riverbed to see the rock pools, take a picnic and simply enjoy the views, or go for a swim.

The natural park is a haven for water lovers and nature lovers who will come across cascades of tiny streams and springs cutting through the rocks can be seen as you climb the wooden steps and bridges to the top. It’s perfect for a day out for all the family, although you will need to take care as the rocks can be slippery. This natural park is also a photographer’s paradise with perfect scenes of waterfalls, turquoise pools, a green oasis and views of the neighbouring mountains.

There are five restaurants at the waterfalls so you can sample local cuisine from the Alicante region, including many rice dishes such as paella or fresh fish from the bay. A picnic site has also been set up near one of the entrances, if you decide to bring your own food.

About 500 metres up the hill from the Algar waterfalls is a campsite and barbecue area. Dogs are allowed on leads except during high season. They are not allowed in the waterfalls at all from mid-June to mid-September.
The Algar waterfalls are about 15 minutes from Benidorm on the CV-715 road to Callosa d’en Sarria. Entrance is €4 for adults, €3 for seniors and students, €2 for children aged 4 to 10, and free to children under 10.
