The Sierra Bernia rises majestically behind the resort of Albir, dividing the Marina Alta from the Marina Baja along the Calpe, Benissa and Altea border. This formidable natural barrier is one of Spain's many mountain ranges and is crossed by tunnels that carry the N332 national road, the A7 motorway and the railway. It was one of the most technically difficult stretches of construction on Spain's Autopista del Mediterraneo (Mediterranean Motorway). The international sports harbour of Luis Campomanes with its impressive collection of luxury yachts shelters under the Bernia at Mascarat exactly on the Greenwich meridian 00º 00' and a short step from the prestigious Altea Hills Urbanisation with it's 5 star Melia Hotel Resort.
The southern side of the Bernia range overlooks beautiful Altea Bay, making a gentle arc with the old hilltop town of Altea at it's centre and curving around to it's far end at Albir and the Sierra Helada. The attractive palm lined promenade of Altea is being extended along to Albir village and the Puerto Deportivo Luis Campomanes is current being enlarged to accommodate the strong demand for berths. Alternative harbours are the Calpe Club Nautico under the Peñon de Ifach, Moraira Clu. The mountainous backdrop to all the resorts along the Costa Blanca are one of its most spectacular and beautiful features - just a short drive away!.
The Sierra de Bernia reaches 1130 metres, and with its Font del Garroferet and ancient fortress, it is well worth visiting.
