8. Jalon Valley: Tour from Benidorm, Albir, Altea, or Calpe
Discover the award–winning wine making region of Jalon, set in a picturesque valley surrounded by mountains. Visit a valley lined with almond trees and beautiful landscapes. After collection from your meeting point, accompanied by an English–speaking representative, follow the coastal road past the villages of Altea, Mascarat and Calpe, and head inland through some of the region's most breathtaking scenery to arrive in Jalon around 11:00 AM.
Arrive in Jalon and enjoy around 3 hours of free time to use as you prefer. Sit and watch the world go by whilst taking in the lovely countryside views and fresh air, or take the chance to try your hand at bargain hunting in the craft and antique market. Spend the morning sampling locally produced wines and other products such as chocolates, honey, and more in local boutiques.
If you choose to tour on a Saturday, visit one of the oldest and largest rastros (car boot sales) of the Costa, drawing people from afar to rummage through the goods and antiques on sale.
