Alan Rogers Review
This small site was untidy when seen, but it has direct access across a small but busy road to the attractive pebble beach and is within a few hundred yards of all Albir’s shops and restaurants. The 250 pitches on flat stone and gravel are of a good size with 5/10A electricity (extra charge for 10A). The site tends to be full in winter and is very popular with several nationalities, especially the Dutch. For winter stays, it would pay to get there before Christmas as January and February are the peak months. Although it is on the coast, the site is well sheltered and something of a sun trap. However, there is considerable traffic noise from the roads along two sides of the site and it is overlooked by the high-rise flats nearby.
Campers can join in a host of activities organised by the site, from physical ones such as tennis and walking to gentler ones such as painting or Spanish lessons in the pleasant classroom. We were surprised by the negative notices at reception stating ‘don’t ask as electricity cables would not be disconnected until 10.00 hrs’ plus others. There is much to see in the Levant (this area takes its name from the Spanish word ‘lavantarse’ which means rise – as in the sun!) and a visit to the mountains is recommended to sample traditional foods and the wonderful Jumilla and Yecla wines.
The sanitary block can be heated and provides some washbasins in cabins, separate baby facilities and a room for disabled visitors (both these accessed by key). Motorcaravan services. Gas supplies. Laundry. Rustic bar and restaurant on seafront (open to public). Takeaway. Playground. Tennis. Boules. Fitness centre. Organised entertainment and courses. ATM. WiFi throughout (free).

Site is on the Albir-Altea coast road and can be reached from either end. From N332, north or south, watch for sign Playa del Albir and proceed through Albir to the coast road. Site is on north side of Albir, well signed along one-way system alongside sea.
