The place, which you see in front of you with a webcam Costa Blanca is the Altea resort, located in 10 km from the bustling Benidorm. In the 50s of the 20th century, the town was chosen by Spanish artists, and they settled here. They created their own canvases, arranged exhibitions, opened galleries. Over time Althea turned into a bohemian place, where people began to come to see the masterpieces of modern art and listen to classical music. The atmosphere of the city impresses with its intimacy, and here you can spend more than one day, wandering around the art galleries, attending concerts. But tourists from Europe go to this resort not only for it. They are attracted by the beauty of the town itself, located on a high mountain. White houses scramble up the mountainside and straddle the magnificent church of La Virgen del Consuelo from all sides. To the temple you can climb the stairs of 257 steps. Here is an observation deck, from where you can enjoy the panorama of the city, surrounded by the mountain range of the Sierra Bernina and the endless blue sea. Walking around the Old Town, you can go down the narrow long streets to the beaches and the embankment.
The webcam Costa Blanca is just showing you the part of the La Roda beach (Playa de la Roda), which stretches along the water’s edge for 1.5 km. Its shore is covered with white pebbles, and the sea in the water area is crystal clear. Since 2003, La Roda has been awarded the Blue Flag every year. The infrastructure of the beach includes the rental of umbrellas and sun loungers, showers, toilets, playgrounds, wooden decks for people with disabilities. Nearby there is a car parking and 2 diving centers. Tourists who like to relax actively, can swim in clean water with a mask and scuba, try surfing, go for a yacht, canoe and kayak. Along the beach is laid a beautiful embankment with snow-white columns. Take a walk on a warm evening or early morning, when the sun’s rays are not yet burning of skin. Along the embankment grow palm trees with lush crowns, they give it an exotic look. At any time of the day, you can go to any of many bars and restaurants and try the dishes of Spanish, Baconian, Mediterranean cuisine.
Walking along the promenade you will see shops where you can buy self-made tablecloths and napkins, as well as ceramics made by the hands of local masters. The beach of La Roda ends at a small fishing port, the marina of which you can see using a webcam Costa Blanca – Altea – La Roda Beach. From the port, fishermen go to sea to bring fresh seafood ashore. Near the port there is a small fishing market where you can buy seafood. The city of Altea is rich in historical and cultural attractions. It does not have tall buildings, which gives it an extra charm. The resort is designed for people with tightly stuffed wallets, so renting a place here is not cheap. But in this beautiful town you can come from Benidorm or Albir, renting a car, because car rental in Spain is very developed and convenient for those, who do not like to sit on the ground during the holidays. The Altea webcam shows you a small piece of the city, but its image is broadcast by the Skylinewebcams service around the clock, so you can watch this Mediterranean resort every day at your convenience.
