For the frill seekers. Go karting is fast and exciting and not too far away from Albir there are two different tracks. Both are close to Carrefour hypermarket. Please note our top tip:
Even though Go-karting is a fun activity, please make sure you are covered on your holiday insurance because it does fall into the category of dangerous sports. If participating and an accident does occur you may find you will not be covered.
Fun, Fun, Fun but can be expensive for a few laps.
For all those interested in golf there are a some great golf courses on the costa blanca. These can be fairly expensive so it's best to check beforehand. Check our Tourist Information pages for details of some nearby golf courses.
Markets on the Costa Blanca (Times around 9:00am - 13:00)
Everyone likes a market and those on the Costa Blanca are very good. Albir itself does not have a market because it is based in Alfaz. Benidorm, Alfas & Altea are easy to visit. Check our Tourist Information pages for details of when and where the markets are held.
Castillo del Conde de Alfaz (The Castle of the Count of Alfaz) offers a great night of family entertainement can be found just outside Alfas on the road to Benidorm.
The medieval knights put on an excellent display of horsmanship. tickets also include a visit to the mad monks dungeons, a medieval supper and there is also a disco afterwards which goes on right into the small hours. Though there is plenty going on in and around Alfas to keep the average family entertained for hours, it is also rather quiet compared to its close neighbour, Benidorm which can be described as a non stop party. If you don't find enough locally then an evening in the raving town of Benidorm with it's sex shows and non stop disco's is sure to offer something to keep you entertained.
