Terra Natura is a new-generation wildlife park where you can discover the “Zooimmersion” experience – a new concept in habitat design which will enable you to come into contact with the animals as if there were no barriers between you – at least, no visible ones! The 320,000 square metres of the Benidorm park are divided into four themed areas.

At Terra Natura Benidorm you can see more than 1,500 animals from 200 different species, 50 of which are in serious danger of extinction, and over 2,500 examples of more than 160 species of trees, shrubs and ground cover plants from these regions. As well as the hugely varied collection of wildlife, our educational information (through placards with biological details and information points), the architectural theming and the range of shows, entertainment and adventure activities make Terra Natura the venue of choice for families looking to spend an interesting and entertaining day in a natural setting.

The Don Cayo Golf Club

Following the remodelling that took place during 2006, which represented an important transformation of the course, currently the Don Cayo Golf Club stands out because despite the fact that it only has 9 holes, a golfer can actually enjoy an 18-hole round. Creation of various tee-offs per hole allows a configuration of its 9 holes in two completely different rounds, hence allowing the golfers to enjoy a more entertaining and attractive round.

The Lemon Express

For all train enthusiasts and those seeking a leisurely ride -the Limon Express from Denia to Calpe and all stops in between

The “Lemon Express” (Limón Express) tourist train ran on the FGV line between Alicante and Denia.  Reported to be a fabulous train ride experience, through beautiful rugged countryside.Unfortunately the train bogey wheels need maintenance and alteration to fit the new track which is being improved and electrified by FGV  the Costa Blanca tram & railway company. The old train has remained in a siding at Benidorm Station covered in graffiti. A ‘come back’  expected cost of this upgrade is just short of £1,000,000′ and the idea has been shelved.

You can still take the same spectacular journey on the modern tram through the mountains., so jump on a tram for either Benidorm to either Gata de Gorges or go a little further to Denia for a day out. The trams offer an hourly service.

The journey can be made from as far south as Alicante , but you will have to change trams at Benidorm. These trams are more frequent, every 30 minutes.You can always have a coffee, drink or snack at Benidorm Station if you have to wait 30 mins. Buy your ticket at the station booking office  of machines on the platform.
