Easy walk up on good roads. Last little bit up rough path. No Pubs, shops or toilets on route. Great views from the road and at the top. Lots of people of various capabilities doing it today. I am 73 so don't be put off.

Thank Fred H

I walked up to the cross with my dad, sister and her boyfriends in their early 20s, all relatively fit! We made it to the top in about 30-40 mins but we scrambled up in a straight line where the road loops, to save time! You get amazing views from the top of the cross down to Benidorm and makes an amazing viewpoint and photo stop! Would recommend for anyone who is looking for a different side of benidorm - if not, you can get a taxi ;)

My partner and I had been planning to do this for the last eight years we have been coming to Benidorm.
Can I just say BREATHTAKING, Both the walk along the long winding steep roads to the top of the hill ( not for the faint hearted) but once at the top the views of Benidorm and beyond are amazing. Some people do get a taxi or use a moped but it is much more fulfilling to walk and feel that sense of achievement when you reach the top is superb and the panoramic sights make it worth while.
How to get there
Start up the hill via Calle de Amsterdam or Calle de Berlin when you come to the triangle in the road turn right along Calle Sierra Dorada till you come to the roundabout then keep to the right onto Av Tokio follow and look out for small signs on to Calle Taywan follow this till you get to a small car park. (nearly there) Walk a stony path and stairs cut out the hill with a rickety hand rail and once at the top just take in the views.

The cross is worth walking to as the views are particularly good. It is quite a long haul up hill and the last bit is over rough terrain but worthwhile in the end.

We got a taxi to the top which was an experience in itself!! The views from the top were quite amazing. We timed our visit for sunset which proved a good choice. We walked back down and enjoyed the views out to sea.
