From Aigües to El Campello route
This is the most classic route you can do from Aigües. An exciting descent along this quiet road to El Campello. We recommend you leaving Aigües early to go down to the beach and have lunch on a terrace of Carrer La Mar, the sailors’ district.
After recovering your strength, and if the weather is okay to enjoy a swim at the beach, it’s time to start the rise of one of the most beautiful cycling routes in Alicante. Ahead and on your left you will see the mountain that is becoming increasingly green. On the left side of the road you will see the immensity of the Mediterranean sea and the beauty of Costa Blanca.
From Aigües to Alicante city route, through Busot, Mutxamel and Sant Joan d’Alacant
Another road bike route that you can do from Aigües is an interior route arriving to the city.
After getting down 3km you have to take the diversion to Busot. Once in this village, take the direction to Mutxamel circumventing the Bonalba golf course.
A slight slope from Mutxamel takes you to the town of Sant Joan d’Alacant. In Sant Joan d’Alacant, take the N-332 that will direct you to the centre of the capital.
If you don’t want to do such a long back, you can take the Tram L1 or L3 to El Campello and you can climb from this location to Aigües.
Climbing route to Serra d’Aitana through Relleu and Sella
This route is for tough people, one of the cycling routes in Alicante made for experts, so we can do it partially until our legs give out. From Aigües we can climb to the nearby town of Relleu. From Relleu we should take direction to Sella-Orxeta, following CV-775. When we arrive to CV-770 we should take direction to Sella, and we could then climb to the highest point of the province.
From Relleu we could also go direction to La Torre de les Maçanes, another beautiful village in the Alicante’s mountain.
