The definition of paradise (as well as perfection) differs from person to person, but nobody, traveler or not, can deny that Albir, Spain comes fairly close. Stunning views, cheerful locals and perfect weather, Albir appears as the ideal vacation spot. If travelers wish to settle down, Albir provides the necessary stability and comforts they would ever need.

Unlike Killarney, which brings in most of its income through tourism, Albir does not prioritize tourism. Along the coast of Albir lies Sierra Helada (Icy Mountains), a natural park protected by Albir, and neighboring towns Altea and Benidorm. While the towns want to protect Sierra Helada, they also want to promote its existence to raise awareness about the world’s rapidly disappearing pristine areas.

Within Sierra Helada narrow paths crisscross all over the park, available to all who enjoy the peaceful nature of a quiet walk.

However, a main path paves the way to the edge of the coast with a lighthouse at the end of the journey. In the past, the lighthouse served to guide ships to safety, but now exists as a beautiful piece of architecture. Inexperienced travelers should use caution if they choose to visit the lighthouse because the trip extends over five kilometers (about three miles) and takes an hour and a half to complete at minimum.

However, park goers must use caution when they decide to go for a walk no matter the trip duration. The weather in Albir feels perfect if residents and visitors alike step outside at the right time. Stepping outside too late could mean experiencing peak midday heat.

Since Albir feels almost desert-like, but resides next to the coast, humidity simply does not exist, causing the heat to feel dry instead of sticky.

Pleasant park times occur early in the morning, when very few people feel the urge to face a new day and it feels pleasantly cool, or in the late afternoon when the climate starts to cool off and locals leave for home. Avoid visiting the park midday to dodge locals looking for a lunch break in a beautiful spot and who have long adapted to the heat of the afternoon.

Albir offers many attractions for travelers to enjoy, many of which should send travelers racing to pack.
