The Algar Waterfalls (or Fuentes del Algar) are a natural stamp in the interior of Callosa d’en Sarrià, a small town 16 kilometers from Benidorm. It is a set of waterfalls connected by small water channels or rivers where we can bathe, one of the best places to enjoy the Costa Blanca.
These natural pools located in the province of Alicante are a recommended visit if you are in our camping in Benidorm near the beach. In fact, in the summer months this area is more than inhabited. This visit is well worth it.
It must be taken into account that the water, coming from the mountain, is quite cold and not everyone dares to swim.
Is there a fee to enter these beautiful waterfalls in Alicante? Unfortunately yes, but not much. You have to pay for the entrance to the site, but also for parking. As you arrive you will find private parking lots and restaurants on both sides of the road.

In summary, we could define this beautiful place as a place to spend the day with family or friends, as it is quite enjoyable in company, there are plenty of restaurants nearby to eat and the day is quite pleasant. Although I warn you in advance that if you are cold, you will suffer a little in the first contact with water.
And if you are visiting the Costa Blanca for more days, we recommend you to include some of these wonderful towns in your plans.
