Transportation in Torrevieja


The two nearest international airports to Torrevieja are Murcia's airport (MJV) and Alicante's airport (ALC). Some visitors to Torrevieja also fly into Ibiza's international airport (IBZ), but the journey is more complex and involves a ferry to Denia and then an additional 2hrs by car to Torrevieja. 

The Murcia-San Javier Airport (IATA code of MJV) is situated 25 kms from Torrevieja. It takes about 30 minutes by car. 

The Alicante El Altet Airport (IATA code of ALC) is situated 36 kms from Torrevieja. It takes about 45 minutes by car. 


There are buses running from Murcia's airport to Torrevieja, but the line is not direct and involves going into Murcia's central bus station and catching a bus from there onto Torrevieja - a total trip of around 100 kms. 

We suggest using an alternative transport method, such as car rental, a taxi or a private shuttle bus to Torrevieja. 

The bus service from Alicante's El Altet airport is far more straightforward. The Quickair bus runs several times a day and provides a direct connection between Alicante airport and the central bus station in downtown Torrevieja. 

The bus stop is located just outside the departure area (level 2). Arrivals is on the lower floor (level 1), when arriving take the lift up to the departure area. The Quickair bus stop is located at the end of the departures terminal. 

The price for a one way ticket is approximately €7 and a return ticket is €14. Tickets can be bought directly with the driver.

Timetable from Alicante airport - from 8:00 until 22:00. The bus leaves every two hours.
Timetable from Torrevieja bus station - from 7:00 until 21:00. The bus leaves every two hours.
