Albir is a small beach resort sandwiched between Altea and Benidorm on the northern Costa Blanca in Spain.
Albir is very close to Alfaz del Pi which is just slightly inland on the other side of the N-322 which divides the two areas. Albir is also referred to as El Albir or L’Albir.
Albir is situated midway between two international airports, to the south there is Alicante International airport and to the north there is Valencia international airport.
Once at the airport you have a range of different airport transfer options to Albir including private shuttle buses, taxis or car rental.
Albir has a Mediterranean climate which means hot summers with mild winters and very little rain. Albir is blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year making it an ideal holiday destination pretty much all year round.
Albir is an easy drive from three international airports of Alicante, Valencia and Murcia. If you are planning a trip to Albir and you want to see what the weather might be like at the time you’re planning to visit, you may wish to see our dedicated weather page.
