Hi all, Due to stay for 2nd time in the Urb next july, I understand there is a bus service that runs to the beach but is only in service July and August, is this correct? If so does anyone have the exact day this service begins? Can't find much info on web.

Thanks in advance

The beach bus is arranged in the summer months only. In 2010 a lot of effort was put in to try to obtain permission from Eche Ayuntamiento for the urbanisation tourist train to visit and stop at La Marina pueblo and the beach. It was a last ditch attempt to ensure the future viability of the tourist train. To cut a long story short Elche council did not provide approval for the train, it was deemed to be too dangerous to traverse the traffic lights junction in the pueblo, also their was not sufficient space near the beach for the train to turn around for the return journey. The train owner was not able to continue operating just on the urb with so few people using it. The train was eventually repossessed by the bank.

The Beach bus is run by Vega Buses and this year their timetable was from 1st July, the first Monday in July and ran until 7th September.,the first Sunday in September.. In 2015 it should therefore be starting either on the 29 June or the following Monday, 6th July and continuing until 6th September. Until we get the dates from Vega Bus we can only guess.
