Benidorm Sightseeing Bus
For most people just arriving for a holiday in a sunny seaside town or city, exploring the area and getting started on their tan is a priority; well you can do both when you take a journey on the open top Benidorm Sightseeing Bus. With block after block of high rise buildings, Benidorm can be disorientating for first time visitors and unless you're a single traveller with no set holiday itinerary, walking the streets looking for popular attractions and entertainment venues can just get frustrating, especially if you have kids in tow.
Benidorm Sightseeing Bus Routes
The city operates 4 different sightseeing routes with an audio guide in 5 different languages. The most popular route is the double decker open top line 3o which has air conditioning in the lower deck but offers the best views up top. This journey starts at the terminal in the popular city residential area of Rincón de Loix and heads along the busy Av. del Mediterráneo, which is a block up from Levante Beach and lined with popular shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. It continues through the city centre, down to Elche Park and along Poniente Beach Promenade before reaching Cala de Finestrat.
Line 31 also starts in Rincón de Loix and heads along Av. Dr. Severo Ochoa where the famous Benidorm Palace is located. The scenic journey continues through the seaside residential area of Albir and onwards to the picturesque town of Altea. Passengers wishing to take both journeys can simply hop off one and onto the other at the terminal in Rincón de Loix.
Compared to the south of the Costa Blanca, the inland areas around Benidorm are a lot greener and more mountainous where the scenic line 16 takes passengers to the mountaintop village of Guadalest, Spain's most visited village and a delight to explore with narrow cobbled streets, quaint roadside cafes and charming little museums. Line 18 goes to the equally as picturesque Algar Waterfalls, also located in the mountains surrounding Benidorm and home to one of the largest cactus gardens in Europe and the fun Dino Park, a favourite with the young ones. These two routes can be taken from various points along Levante and Poniente.
