Getting Around the Costa Blanca

Of course the most comfortable way to explore the Costa Blanca is to hire a car. However, there is a well-serviced and regular network of public transport which runs between all the towns and villages of the Costa Blanca:


Alicante Tram

There is a narrow gauge railway which runs North from Alicante through Villajoyosa, Benidorm, Altea and Calpe to Denia - a lovely way to admire the beautiful coastline. The railway also stops at Terra Mítica, at the big discos in Benidorm, at L'Alfas de Pi and Gata de Gorgos among others.

The Lemon Express Scenic Tour Train is an excellent alternative which follows the same route, starting from Benidorm up the coast and inland to Gata de Gorgos.


There are numerous bus services operating between all the towns and villages of the Costa Blanca. Each will have several departures every day from Alicante to all of the attractions and towns of the Costa Blanca.

Ask in your hotel for bus timetables and routes.

Benidorm - Alicante Airport Shuttle

The Alsa Bus Company also runs the new airport shuttle connecting Benidorm with Alicante El Altlet International Airport. The journey takes 1 hour and 15 minutes and costs 12 EUR return. It leaves Alicante Airport for Benidorm at 10.30, 14.30, 17.30 and 21.30, and returns from Benidorm to Alicante Aiport at 08.00, 12.00, 16.00 and 20.00.

Boat Trips

Surely the most fun way to explore the surrounding coastline is from the water... and there are several boat trips from the Benidorm Marina to nearby coastal towns, including Calpe, Altea and nearby Benidorm island (known for its Peacocks!).

The Mundo Marino Boat Company organises many excursions from various ports up and down the coastline. The boat trips leave from Denia, Javea, Calpe and Altea.
