The wide beach of El Altet, located between Urbanova (which belongs to the Alicante Municipal district) and Arenales del Sol, is a dune ecosystem which makes it a national reference, given the rarity of such evironments all around Spain. With an extension of 2 km of fine white sand, it was awarded with a blue flag for its quality and accessibility facilities.

There are parking areas, foot washers, wooden footbridges, a refreshment stall, areas to practice volleyball, deckchairs and beach umbrellas renting service and maritime surveillance services. There is a regular bus service which links El Altet with Elche and Alicante.
