Alicante Airport Bus Service
The Alicante Airport bus service is very handy for visitors to Orihuela Costa. The area is also served by the smaller Murcia-San Javier Airport. This however has absolutely no bus service. With Alicante Airport being less than an hour's drive from most of Orihuela Costa, many visitors choose to take a taxi. At around 60€, a taxi fare can sometimes work out more than the cost of your flight! Those without access to a vehicle, or friends and family to pick them up can also inquire about ‘private' airport pick ups and drop offs in the local Facebook social groups.
The Alicante Airport bus service runs from neighbouring Torrevieja's main bus terminus. This is located on the corner of Calle Antonio Machado and Calle del Mar in the city centre. Here you will find a large and friendly cafeteria/bar. They serve a full range of hot and cold drinks, beer, wine and spirits. They also do full meals, snacks and tapas at reasonable prices. Travellers will also find nearby shops, bars and a large Mercadona Supermarket. Ablutions are available but are rather unhygienic. It is best to use the rest rooms in the cafeteria, especially for females.
