Snorkelling, enjoy the underwater scenery of Altea

If you love exploring underwater landscapes, you will fall in love with Altea. The town has several beaches where you can enjoy an unforgettable underwater experience. These are some of the most famous ones:


This is the most common area for snorkelling and scuba diving. With a maximum depth of 20 metres, you can enjoy the seabed at different heights where there is an abundance of native flora and fauna.

On the beach you will also find the typical fishermen's huts. A reflection of the living history of Altea.

The pool

  • If you want to snorkel but have little experience and are looking for a quiet exercise, this is the ideal option for you. La Pileta is located just outside the harbour and has a maximum depth of five metres, the perfect location for a quiet outing in calm waters.

The hill
