Local Bus Service – To/From Algorfa

With many thanks to ‘Ika’, for posting this handy information on the algorfaforum.co.uk forum.  To quote Ika:

“I am a frequent user of local bus network and find it easy and very cheap.

Going in the direction of Torrevieja:

The Vega Bus line stops just before the traffic lights along the side of TIEN 21 electrical shop, going to:

Benijofar: bus stops outside the Pharmacy, return bus stops opposite ‘The Smoke House’

Quesada: same bus stop for both directions, which is just before the Arches

Torrevieja:  1st stop just past the roundabout near the Habaneras Centre and Carrefour. Return bus from this centre stops on the roundabout at the tall flag poles, near the petrol station. (I am giving this detail because I found out on my first visit that nobody I asked there could tell me the location of any bus stop and ended taking a taxi home.)

Almoradi:  the bus stop is on the opposite side of the road (to TIEN 21), will take you to Almoradi, which is a hub linking to various other towns.

In Almoradi there is an excellent Tourist Information Centre; situated in a green kiosk on one corner of the large plaza in the town centre, next to the church. The staff speak English. Maps and bus timetables are available there. A very detailed bus timetables and routes are also displayed at the bus station

The timetable:

Almoradi – Algorfa – Torrevieja – (Arrives Algorfa 10 main after leaving Almoradi)
