Holidays are a crucial part of existence as they allow you to relax your body and soul. One of the places that allowed me to have a superb time in Costa Blanca is Callosa and its sights. The surroundings are amazing and offer lovely views of the waterfalls and mountains. If you’re planning to visit Benidorm, be sure to include the Algar Waterfalls on your bucket list.
