Alfaz del Pi
Alfaz del Pi is a town located in the province of Alicante, on the Costa Blanca, Spain. The town nestles in the foothills of the Sierra Helada, in the district of the Marina Baixa.
It is situated 47 kilometres north of Alicante and boasts a wonderful beachfront, with spectacular views to the huge rock Peñon de Ifach at Calpe.
The town dates back to the Moorish occupation. The name ‘Alfaz’ derives from the Arabic word for ‘sown land’, as the region was used to grow fruits and almonds. Later on the town became a fortified settlement, which protected the local coastline against the Barbary pirates.
The town is very attractive and offers excellent amenities, including supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants, and services such as a medical centre, post office, etc.
The beach at Alfaz del Pi is particularly appealing, with golden sands, a pretty promenade and crystal clear, calm waters. The views from the beachfront are beautiful with a clear view to the Peñon de Ifach at nearby Calpe.
