  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

4.2 Quality and importance

Zona mixta, formada básicament por una extensa área litoral y marina comprendida desde el sur de la Punta de Toix, adyacente a la zona anterior. Esta zona alberga, según los datos disponibles, extensísimas praderas de Posidonia oceanica que muestran en general un estado óptimo de conservación. Además, y todavía en el medio marino, el LIC incorpora dos pequeñas islas -la de l'Olla, frente a Altea, y el conocido Illot de Benidorm--. Sin embargo, la delimitación adoptada excluye del LIC la zona litoral de Altea hasta una franja de 500 m mar adentro (coincidente aproximadamente con la curva de -10 m) y el litoral de las playas de Ponent y Llevant de Benidorm, aunque en este caso y a causa de la configuración de los fondos la exclusión afectaría a una franja de 200 m desde la línea de costa. El límite sur de la LIC quedaría situado al sur del límite entre los términos municipales de Benidorm y La Vila Joiosa. Por lo que respecta al medio terrestre, la zona incluye la Serra Gelada de Benidorm, impresionante relieve litoral con acantilados de más de 400 m, y que alberga reductos de vegetación de un valor execocional. Cabe destacar, en este sentido, la interesante duna fósil colgada y la peculiar vegetación que la coloniza. Además, la sierra comparte diversos endemismos botánicos con el vecino Penyal d'Ifac. Finalmente, es de destacar el interés del citado Illot de Benidorm como área de nidifación de diversas especies de aves marinas.
