Getting To Torrevieja From Alicante

Alicante, Spain is one of the most popular destinations for travelers to the Costa Blanca region. It is situated along the beautiful coast of the Mediterranean Sea in southern Spain with the cities of Benidorm to its north and Torrevieja to its south. Whether you are visiting for business or pleasure, traveling to Alicante should not be difficult.

The best way to reach Alicante is by air and, fortunately, it has its own airport. The El Altet International Airport is only six miles from downtown Alicante. In addition to flights from various foreign countries, there are also daily flights from other cities in Spain such as Madrid and Barcelona. Once you are at the airport, there is transportation available to help you reach your final destination in the city. If you are looking for a train, though, you should know that there is no train connection at the airport. But, considering the airport is only six miles from downtown, you can use one of the many taxis outside of the airport, the bus or a car hire company. Be sure to make an advance reservation for car hire services, as they will pick you up from the airport.

If not flying directly into the Alicante airport, you may also reach Alicante city limits by train or bus. The train system known as the tram and trenet can also take you to some of the smaller surrounding towns, including as Denia, Altea and Benidorm. Motor buses service the outlying areas to connect Alicante to the smaller towns. There is also a ferry from Algeria which will bring you into the city of Alicante. You can book the ferry through Romeu to Oran or Alegeria. Though this may be an interesting experience, it is not the most reliable method of reaching Alicante due to the potential for service interruptions at any given time.

Once you are inside the city limits of Alicante, you will find that walking is a sufficient way to get around the city due to its small size. However, taxis and the bus are available as well as car hire services if you prefer. Travelers requiring an overnight stay should have no difficulty finding appropriate accommodations. There are many hotels in the business district offering views of both the mountains on the west and the sea on the east. You can also find resorts along the beach, which are also close to the city.
