Fuentes del Algar (Algar Waterfalls)
A beautiful natural park .
It is an enjoyable journey winding through the groves of nisperos. Over 22 million kilos of nisperos are produced in the Guadalest and Algar valley regions each year. These groves are covered by a massive framework of netting which act as protection from birds which enjoy the tasty fruit.
The easiest route to Algar begins by taking the road to Callosa d'en Sarriá and then following the signs for the Fuentes del Algar.
The walk up to the waterfalls begins by passing the bars and restaurants lining the route, some boasting swimming pools - one is even guitar shaped! Other areas of local interest are also signposted along the way, one being a small train museum. You will find a selection of bottled nisperos and nispero products as well as the usual fayre in a couple of souvenir shops you pass on the approach to the waterfalls. You will enter the waterfalls through a bar/restaurant and there may be an entrance fee.
A dozen steps down will bring you to the main pool into which the largest of the waterfalls cascades. Many people do have a swim in the fresh mountain waters so if you are prepared for the cold, then ensure you take appropriate swimwear with you.
