The village of Polop is located inland in the Costa Blanca North in an area known as the Marina Alta. The local economy is based mainly on agriculture. The village is a delight to explore and perfect for a morning or afternoon ramble. The hill, where the old castle was situated is encircled by a medieval wall, and is a 'must' to walk up. Follow the Stations of the Cross to the castle remains and you'll be well rewarded with some fabulous views before you enjoy a cool drink at the café bar at the top. There you will marvel at spectacular views to Calpe, Albir and Altea on the coast and inland to Callosa and the Sierra Bernia Mountains. The area is dominated by the Leon Dormido - the Sleeping Lion mountain which lies behind Polop.

Quiet of Polop or hustle & bustle of the coast
• Polop can easily be combined with the nearby resort of Benidorm. It provides a perfect contrast to the busy, commercial beaches of Benidorm. So spend the morning exploring the village of Polop then head to one of the many nearby award winning beaches for an afternoon of sun, sea and sand!
• Spend a day exploring the nearby historic mountain top village of Guadalest. Here you will have panoramic views of the coast and mountains and can enjoy a boat trip on the turquoise waters of the lake.
• If you don't fancy cooking much you can enjoy a meal in Polop. There are many bars and cafes to choose from offering traditional Spanish and International cuisine. Then maybe head to the nearby water falls known as Fonts del Algar for a day splashing around in the crystal clear mountain waters and plunge pool.
