Choo, choo! Orihuela Costa tourist train gets on the right track

THE ORIHUELA COSTA TOURIST TRAIN first rumbled onto the streets in 2018, proving an immediate hit upon its introduction. After a minor delay, the popular train is back this summer to provide an innovative and enjoyable way to experience the locale.

The local attraction was initially launched by Orihuela Town Hall in association with the established Valencian passenger transport company, Bus Sigüenza. Billed as the “best way to discover Orihuela Costa”, the road train provides a unique travel experience in addition to a practical way of getting around the coastal region.

The Orihuela Costa tourist train operates a road-going locomotive pulling a carriage with covered seating providing shade and a generous seating capacity.

The service operates a return route starting out from Campoamor and servicing points of interest eastward along the Orihuela Costa coastline, and runs a return service from Playa Flamenca travelling in a westerly direction.

For summer 2022, the Orihuela Costa tourist train will operate a service for the rest of July and the month of August. Tickets cost €5 per person and tickets remain valid for an entire day of unlimited travel.

The trains (or “Orihuela Tren Turístico”), will run local transport services along the coastline, offering a super-fun way to see the sights and experience the sounds of the region.

Popular scheduled stops include Playa Flamenca beach (Cala Mosca), Zenia Boulevard shopping centre, La Zenia beach (Cala Bosque), and the beaches of Campoamor (Playa de la Glea).

With a comparatively short travel time comfortably under an hour, the Orihuela Costa tourist train provides a great way of exploring the local area even in the height of summer, as the movement of the vehicle provides a cooling Mediterranean Sea breeze even on the stillest of days.

Services from Campoamor depart at 11:00, 13:00 and 17:00 each day from Monday to Friday. Weekend services depart Campoamor at 09:00, 11:00, and 13:00 on Saturdays and Sundays during July only.

Return services from Playa Flamenca depart at 12:00, 14:00 and 18:00 each day from Monday to Friday. Weekend services depart Playa Flamenca at 10:00, 12:00, and 14:00 on Saturdays and Sundays (July only).

The tourist train connects the urbanisations of La Regia, Cabo Roig and La Zenia, which allows visitors and tourists to visit the beaches of Cala Bosque, Cala Mosca and Playa de la Glea.

It's a fun way for everyone – both residents and tourists – to get around together with the possibility of getting to know the local area and facilitates improved mobility for people of all ages.

The travel experience is expected to prove exceptionally popular during the summer, and visitors can find out more from the official Orihuela Tren Turístico Facebook page.
