Very easy to understand, buy a ticket before boarding ( machine gives change). Trams run every 20 mins or so, pick up a pocket time table which shows all stops.Tram L1 travells from Luceros ( Alicante ) to Benidorm and L2 travells from Luceros to El Campello.
Did not see a human to ask any of our questions, i guess the leaflet says it all.

Our feet were aching, so we caught the tram from the Puerto del Mar, and travelled a short distance, where we changed to a train,
The trams run every half an hour, are always on time, and will take you to various destinations along the coast, or like us, the tram will take you to a station where you can get a train as far as Denia. You could also visit Benidorm or Calpe. (they also run every half an hour and are timed to connect to the tram) Also reasonably priced, but not very comfortable. Made a nice change from walking everywhere..

Trams were always on time, clean and a great affordable way to get around Alicante. We used the tram service between Alicante and Benidorm and found this service very efficient. Useful tip to pick up a timetable from local station as trams do have cut off times.

A lovely coastal route, past Terra Mitica and the Hiper Carrefour which is also the stop for the relatively new shopping centre, La Marina where you'll find an array of shops including C&A. You will also pass lots of other pretty little towns like El Campello and pass along by, looking straight out onto, the lovely long stretch of beach of the town of San Juan which over the years has taken the place of Benidorm, which believe it or not, was once in the 1980's the holiday home choice of Madrid's well heeled wealthy people. But has now become over shadowed by the more tranquil, and up market San Juan, their now prefered holiday home retreat.

The delightful journey on a nice bright, clean tram takes approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes and cost just over 6 Euros, plus 1 euro forty cents bus fare from the Avenida Meditereano in the centre of the Levante side of Benidorm up to the Train Station. Which also has a Diesel Train for all you Anoraks out there, which again does a coastal route all the way up the Denia but in the opposite direction.

On your arrival at Alicante we chose to get off at the terminus of Luceros and a hint for any of you who like us can get a bit lost, make sure you get a map of Alicante as the tram terminus is not sign posted like our underground or our metro's here in the UK, (not twit proof) and as there is a main train station in Alicante you can get as we did get lost, going back. That said Luceros brings you out and up on an escalator to the street and you are right on the actual Alicante Ramblas, right alongside some rather posh shops, restaurants where you will find traditional of the region paella, the menu of the day an inexpensive full lunch with water/wine (menus del dia) and lots and lots of tapas etc.

We really enjoyed the two very close to each other El Corte Ingles, which reminded us of a cross between the old Co op department store back in the day and a teeny tiny Harrods, with nice clean toilets that you don't have to ask to use or buy anything either you can just go in, on each floor. Plus lovely cafeterias and restaurants etc and an incredible Christmas shop where you will find opulent decorations, christmas cards etc and cute nativity sets so beautifully made they look like the miniature models an architect would produce for a plan of an actual building.

The sea front and the promenade of Alicante are just a short stroll from Luceros too an excellent and inexpensive way to see the surrounding quaint towns and authentic spanish city.
