The Alicante Metropolitan Tram light rail combines different modes of rail services: a partially underground modern tramway through Alicante city centre, a tram-train from Alicante to Benidorm, and conventional commuter rail from Benidorm to Altea, Calp and Dénia.
In target to travel from-to Allicante and Altea you can use the following lines:
- L1 – from Alicante city centre to Benidorm takes 72 minutes. In Benidorm it connects with line L9 to Dénia.
- L9 – from Benidorm to Altea takes 14 minutes.
Discover Line 9
Line 9 is a little over 50 kilometres of track where six completed refurbished locomotives circulate through spectacular landscapes linking some of the most interesting towns in the region.
