A Special Trip
A special experience is a day out to the "Fonts d'Algar at Callosa d'En Sarriá.
It takes approximately 30 minutes on the motorway to reach Callosa d'En Sarrìa from Teulada-Moraira. The journey alone is worthwhile, with a breathtaking backdrop of orange and nispero groves lining either side of the route.
One of the features that makes Callosa d'En Sarrìa particularly attractive is the rural beauty of its Nature Park, where the Fonts d'Algar are situated. The Fonts are generally known as the "Font de Fonts" (Spring of all Springs), and you will see why when you pay them a visit.
From Callosa it is a short and simple journey to the Fonts, which are well signposted. On leaving Callosa the scene is already set: on your right hand side you are afforded a wonderful view of the valley's water canals and sumptuous greenery of the Nature Park.
The Fonts themselves comprise numerous small springs which converge to form the beautiful waterfall and small lagoons of the "Fonts d'Algar". There are many different paths to ramble through and explore, as well as the natural pools, which are supplied by the famous D'Algar waterfall. In summer a day out to the springs is a great alternative to the beach, as the spring waters reach a cool and refreshing temperature of approximately 18°C - don't forget your swimming things! There are also many shady spots where you can relax and soak up the atmosphere of the beautiful surroundings.
The Fonts D'Algar has its own restaurant, plus barbecue and picnic facilities.
There is also a specially designated camping area. Further attractions include an environmental museum and a horticultural nursery, where a duct system utilises the natural springs waters to irrigate the plants and trees.
The Nature Park does not have set opening times, but is generally open from 8am to 7pm.
Route: Take the N332 and turn off a short distance before Altea to Callosa: from Callosa, the way is well signposted.
