The Elche palm grove is the largest in Europe with its 11,000 date palm trees. The palm grove is a unique place, because it has 1000 year long history and the European cultivation of the date palms started here, so the attraction was declared to a World Heritage site in 2000. It opens around 9 am and closes at 9:30 pm. It closes before dark in the winter.
Tram line L9, which is rather a commuter train than a tramway, goes from Benidorm to Denia. From Benidorm to Alicante, take the tram L1.
As more companies can operate lines (even on the same route), if you wish to get to your destination quickly, look for an express bus! Though for smaller distances, it's still easier to choose tram L9.
From Alicante, you can travel for fixed rates to the nearby villages or to the airport, but inside of the city, the price shown by taximeter applies. Both local and regional companies allow call orders. Ask the reception of your hotel, which company they recommend!
If you travel with children and keen on water theme parks, look for accommodation in Benidorm, Torrevieja, Santa Pola, or La Zenia as these villages are close to such parks. In Benidorm, there are 4 different water parks.
In the salt pond of Las Salinas de Torrevieja, you can watch how salt is made in a natural way. The lake has a strange pink colour because of the presence of halobacteria. Despite it's not toxic, it is not allowed to go into the lake.
From the church called Parroquia Nuestra Senora del Consuelo, there is a spectacular view on the cities of Altea and Benidorm.
