If you have the opportunity, during your visit to the city, we recommend that you set aside a day to take a boat trip. Among the most interesting proposals are a visit to the island of Benidorm, enjoying a unique perspective from the cliffs of the “Serra Gelada” or sailing to a nearby town. This is a perfect opportunity to discover the richness of the depths of the Mediterranean Sea, as well as the natural environment of the area and its marine biodiversity. In this post, we’re going to suggest some options when planning Benidorm Boat Trips excursions in Benidorm. Shall we get started?
Discover the different options
To enjoy the best boat trips, all you have to do is go to the Benidorm pier. There you can find a wide range of excursions and maritime transport so that you can choose the one that best suits your plan.
Boat rental, plan your excursion!
In the port of Benidorm you can find options to rent a boat with or without a licence. For those looking to get started in sailing, the best option is to choose a boat without a licence and they usually have a capacity for 5-6 people. It is ideal for everyone as you don’t need any kind of certificate or specific licence to drive it. It is a perfect plan for a family outing, with friends or as a couple. There is also the possibility of renting boats with skipper which have more capacity and usually have a guided tour of the surroundings and the island of Benidorm.
Original Benidorm Boat Trips, let yourself go!
If your destination is the island of Benidorm, the city’s maritime excursion boats reach the island in less than half an hour. The frequency of departures of these boats depends on the season, being more frequent in summer. It is a matter of choosing the times that suit you best and even adapting to spend a day or an afternoon on the island. We recommend the excursion with submarine vision. This is a boat that allows you to contemplate the marine fauna and biodiversity that the coast of Alicante treasures.
Another great plan we suggest is a “mini-cruise” to Calpe or Altea. These same companies offer this possibility through which you can see, on the excursion, the most mountainous area of the Costa Blanca with views of the Serra Gelada, Puig Campana and Sierra Bernia and above all the arrival at the imposing Peñón de Ifach in Calpe.
Have you tried kayaking or paddle surfing? Whatever your answer, these are easy activities that allow you to go at your own pace discovering the coves and the Mediterranean coast. There are companies that rent these tools by the hour and it’s also possible to hire guided excursions to coves and private corners of the Benidorm coastline, you can even find jet skis!
If your plan is more private, there is the possibility of renting a sailing boat or catamaran with skipper to organise more inspiring and bohemian plans designed to contemplate the sunset from the Mediterranean. Idyllic occasions and moments to enjoy with your partner or family.
Places to visit, live nature!
Benidorm Island is one of the most popular destinations to visit by boat. The journey takes between 15 and 20 minutes. Enough time to contemplate the views of the entire bay of Benidorm. On the island you can walk along the different paths that surround it until you reach its highest point, where the lighthouse is located.
Sail around the cliffs of the Serra Gelada. Among the many treasures hidden in this mountain range is a precious legacy of thousands of years in the form of a dune. However, the peculiarity of this dune is that its sand is anchored in the cliff.
Another of the most attractive destinations is to sail to the Peñón de Ifach in Calpe. On the way, you can see the cliffs of the Serra Gelada, the Albir lighthouse and the small town of Altea.
Now that you know the different possibilities of sea excursions in Benidorm, we recommend that you don’t miss the opportunity to go sailing in the Mediterranean, we are waiting for you!
