Boat Trips from Benidorm

There are several boat trips from Benidorm available. ALL depend on favourable weather conditions. 

BOAT TRIP TO BENIDORM (PEACOCK) ISLAND, Isla de Benidorm - trips restart 1st March 2022

Some call it Peacock Island, others Benidorm Rock and the locals refer to it as simply L’illa (the island). But whatever you call it the fact remains its one of the most easily recognized symbols of Benidorm and if you’ve never made the journey across the bay to explore it, then you really should, because it’s a great day out.

Enjoy the amazing views of the Benidorm skyline from the Mediterranean and framed by the towering Puig Campana mountain (the one with the hole in the top) is simply stunning – in fact the whole trip is worth it just for that view.

Benidorm Island measures 350 metres long and 260 metres wide, to the southeast side the high cliff is around 70 metres high.   The island is situated 3.5 kilometres from the coast

When you get to the island you can spend as little or as long as you want just check with a crew member the time of the last boat back before you disembark.  why not make a day of it and take a picnic. The island is a protected national park so flora and fauna abound - wander the path to the summit for a great view of the coast right up to Alicante, then find a comfy patch of rock or undergrowth to enjoy your picnic, with just the fresh sea air and the gulls for company

Also included in the price of your crossing is an ‘underwater’ experience. Known as the Aquascope it looks like a yellow submarine but don’t panic – it doesn’t really go underwater. Instead passengers climb aboard and down into to bowels of the vessel which is glass lined, allowing you to see the marine life swimming free in its natural habitat – its absolutely amazing and the kids will love it.

The Aquascope takes you on a short ride round the side of the island, lasting about fifteen minutes and you’ll see starfish, squid and endless shoals of fish – a real treat!

So for an interesting change of scenery get yourself to the port and on that boat to Benidorm Island.  If you’re wary about feeling seasick, don’t be. The powerful vessel cuts through the calm Mediterranean sea easily, you won’t feel a thing. There’s a cozy interior if the sea air feels chill, or an open top – rather like a double decker bus - and the views from that top deck are spectacular.

Did you know? During the 1830s during a worldwide epidemic of cholera, several local families from Benidorm and Villajoyosa took refuge on the island and lived here for a while.

Legends say that the island is the missing part from the Puig Campana mountain, but tests were done in 1987, and it was found that the rocks at the core of the Puig Campana are Late Jurassic in age whereas Benidorm Island is made of  limestones and are Early Cretaceous (Albian), making the island around 5 million years younger than the mountain.  The true origin of the island has to do with the Sierra Helada mountains, which it was once connected to many, many years ago.
