The Lemon Express is the name of a tourist train that dates back to the 1920's.
The train sets off from Benidorm and ends in Gata de Gorgos some hour and half later, passing through towns such as Altea, Calpe, Benissa and Teulada. In Gata you can wander around and maybe buy some of the local wicker products or visit the railway bar and shop. The outward journey is an opportunity to take in the scenery and take some pictures. The highlights will be pointed out to you by your guide and on the return journey the fun starts with a champagne party with music.
The train can be booked through tour operators or your hotel and your ticket will include pick up to and from the station.
Mercadona, the biggest supermarket chain in Spain, which is next to the Benidorm Clinic along the Avenida Alfonso Puchades. You can buy here all the needs for your living in your appartment. Bus-line 12 will drive you to it, though a walk it's worth a while. All prices are in Euros for now and drinks correspond to 750CC bottles unless otherwise stated.
Open 09.00 - 21.00 h.
Monday to Saturday, open Sunday mornings, and stay open thru lunchtime
I`v been to the medieval night. I just went and seen a thomas cook tourist rep in the hotel across the road from where i was staying. She organised the tickets and the coach, the coach will go around a few hotels picking everyone up. Best booking a couple of days earlier as sometimes the coach maybe full.
Travel back into the medival times, have dinner while the knights fight for their honor in a tournament. Food, wine, dancing and regular old world merry making will ensure one of those great holiday nights to remember.
one of the tallest buildings and the tallest hotel in spain. the most "grand" feature in Benidorm. before going there i' ve read here on VT and on benidorm sites, the existence of it, obviously. and so do you. anyway on the sight of it you be amazed. one beautifull skyscrapper. it is possible to see it for or five miles before arriving Benidorm if your drive the alicant/valencia highway. spanish highways allways have good travel signs but seing bali from a distance yu'll know that yu are close. at close range it is a beautifull hotel. they provide a tour to the top of the building for you to see Benidorm attonishing views.
almost the meeting point of Benidorm. a rocky promontory with great views to both levante and poniente beaches.
if you want to go either way passing there is a must. at night a very wonderfull site full of activities. painters. caricaturists, and handy craft men and women selling their works. musicians playing. and last but not least yourself, and hundreds of tourists crossing and on the way to the bars, discos, and even shopping. at nite or by day light get your cameras ready and take wonderfull photos.
The height without aerial is 186m and with 210m. Gran Bali Is the highest building of Spain. Also the heighest hotel of Europe. On the top there is an open air platform for visitors, you have a magnificent view over Benidorm and surroundings. It is best to go up with one of the panoramic lifts. It is really sensational.
If you go for a walk in the mountains behind the Rincon de Loix, thats at the end of the levante beach, you will see this beautiful ancient tower. It feels as if you're all alone in the world when you go there. Its funny because a few hundred meters back you're in one of the busiest resorts of Europe.
The Plaza de la Hispanidad,it is also called just "Plaza Triangular" Triangular Square in english.This is the heart of Benidorm,and also in here everyone comes to celebrate the new year on New Year's Eve.
On this square starts also the largest avenue in Benidorm: Avenida del Mediterraneo.This is also a very visited place on the city,around you'll find some nice restaurants,outdoor terraces and snack bars,and a few of best shops in the city.Also a small street starts here: CALLE GAMBO,and is one of most important commercial streets in Benidorm.
There are also in the center of the square a small garden with a beautiful and huge tree,sorry but I don't know the english name of it!.
This is another picture of Terra Mitica.
LA FURIA DE TRITON. Here you'll find also a few very nice and funny water atracctions.There is also another one like that in small scale for children.
Inside the Park,you'll find lot of excitants rides,one of most visited of course are the rollercoaster.Here you can take a ride in a few of them.The biggest one is called MAGNUS COLOSUS that one is placed on the Rome Area,also there are two small ones specially for children and anoter new iverted one,called TIZONA.
Don't be affraid!! the Magnus Colossus,our Rollercoaster,are waiting for you!!.
This is a picture taken at late afternoon at Benidorm's new Town Hall,it is located at end of Park de la Iguera.I don't like the building very much because I think that is very modern with too much glass on it.
I like most the old town hall located at Levante Beach.A curiosity of that building is that all names of Benidorm's inhabitants are engranving in one of the facade glasses,so my name is also there!. :-)
Close to the harbour,you can find this nice and small beach,it is Playa del Malpas,and normally are not very crowded like the other beaches in Benidorm.
This small and nice beach is one of my favorites in all Benidorm,as you can see on my pictures the water here looks more clear and with a nice turquoise blue color.
