Nearest big city
Alicante - 40 km away
Valencia - 130 km north
How to get to the city
The easiest way is to go by bus from Alicante or Valencia. If
you get by plane, you have to get into the city (either by taxi or with the
C6 bus) and ask for the Bus station (estacion de autobuses) to get the buses
for Benidorm. The company that drives you to Benidorm is UBESA/ALSA.
From Alicante there is also a small train that stops right at the Foietes
stadium back, that's the Benidorm main stop. This train is called "El
Trenet" and you have to go into Alicante as well.
Or if you're planning to rent a car, then you have to look for the highway
A7 and from Valencia head towards Alicante, and from Alicante head towards
Valencia. And then you should go out at number 65, which is marked with
"Benidorm - Levante".
Anyway, I found this web page that's really good explaining, it's a real
estate agency, but the explanation is good:
For tickets to the show in Benidorm, Spain see the
ServiCaixa ticket site.
How to get to the venue
I think it's going to be a bit difficuld at
this moment, already. But this link can help too (i hope!!):
The Benidorm Guide.
My friend, at the time The Stones are
coming... any place is recommended!! It's going to be in August, isn't it??
So, Benidorm is FULL with tourists. So you better make your bookings right
now, or ou won't find a place to sleep (if you're really going to), and it's
not allowed to spend the night on the beach! but you can spend the day
But if you really want to go pubing, the best area is the beginning of
Levante Beach (close to the old town), from (say) 1am till 4 am and then to
the main road area, the one that takes you to Valencia, "Nacional 332",
there's lots of discos there. There's also a "well known" British area, with
all British pubs in it, in the area of "Rincon de Loix".
Meeting place for fans
If you click on the blue letters that say "centro nuevo", you will see on
top of it a football stadium, and really close to it at its right something
that says "estacion ffcc". That's what I previously meant by the train
station. Close, eh?
Then, to see the bus station (which is not marked on this map) you have to
click on "Playa de Levante", and you have to look for "Avenida de Europa"
which goes sort of vertical and find the cross with "Calle Gerona", and
there is the bus stop located.
Valencia 24/7 :
This site claim they have a story about Keith Richards
and Anita Pallenberg's romance in Valencia 1967!
