Alicante train station transfer connects to the main tourist town of Calpe the main tourist resort of Calpe on the Valencian coast.
Calpe, a fishing town , with more than 13 km. of coastline bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, is always under the protective shadow of the Rock of Ifach, emblem of Calpe and La Costa Blanca. The Rock of Ifach is a chalky mass measuring 332 metres in height, rich in vegetation and birds and declared nature reserve in 1987.
Prior to becoming a tourist town, Calpe was traditionally an agricultural and fishing town, producing almonds, raisins and carob beans, as well as being dedicated to fishing and the extraction of salt from its salt flats.
The fish auction dates back to very distant times. Currently, the auction is one of the most attractive and visited events in Calpe. The auction, organised by the Fishermen’s Guild, consists of the wholesale of fresh fish captured by the fishermen of Calpe.
Once you arrive on your Alicante train station transfer you will see that from the coves of ‘El Collao’ on the far west, we come across the beaches of ‘Arenal-Bol’, ‘Cantal Roig’ and ‘Levante’, two sailing clubs, and a very busy fishing port, with a succession of restaurants serving fish and seafood.
Climbing the Rock of Ifach, sailing along the bay, visiting the Real Club Náutico de Calpe (Calpe’s Royal Sailing Club), strolling through the ‘Paseo Ecológico Príncipe de Asturias’ (the Prince of Asturias’ Ecological Promenade), savouring the delights of the Calpe Bay, enjoying a dip in the ‘Baños de la Reina’ (the Queen’s Baths), practicing scuba diving in the coves, swimming in its fine sandy beaches, visiting Las Salinas (the salt flats) or the old town centre, and enjoying the variety and richness of its fiestas, are just some of the activities on offer in Calpe.
For your Alicante train station transfer once you leave the train, proceed to the arrivals hall and immediately on your left you will see a restaurant called CAFESTORE. Our guide / driver will be waiting for you outside this establishment with a Beniconnect sign, where you will be directed to where your uniformed driver and vehicle are waiting to transfer you to your chosen destination in Calpe.
With two teenage children, a silly o’clock in the morning flight and a bundle of luggage, we didn’t fancy buses, trains and more buses to get to our holiday flat in Denia from Alicante airport so I prebooked a taxi from Beniconnect. It wasn’t cheap, 125€, but we got a spacious air conditioned vehicle with a very courteous and friendly driver Enrique who took us quickly and safely to our destination.
I have used this service twice already and will definitely use again in the future. Will not hesitate to recommend. Drivers are very helpful and friendly, helped me with my luggage. I had to wait a bit on my arrival at the airport for other passengers from their flights but overall the travel (from arriving to the bus stop at the airport to the destination in Calpe) took just about 15 minutes longer than by taxi at a fraction of taxi price. On the way from Calpe to the airport it was about the same time as taxi. Oh, and wi-fi is available on board.
Excellent service. I use the no more than 4 drop off to Benidorm and always great service. You may have to wait a bit of your plane comes in first, or early, but this is not a problem. At approx €15 as opposed to €80 in a taxi
Easy location in airport and very helpful staff on reception. Drivers always polite and courteous. I would recommend them for a fast, efficient service. Very professional.
We found the Beniconnect ideal way to be taken to your hotel without having to drive. The bus was there waiting for us at the airport and was early for the return journey. Would definitely use again.
