Benidorm

Traditional sunshine resort with a British flavour.

Is it for me?

Ever popular with British tourists, with its dramatic high-rise skyline, the two beautiful beaches with palm-lined promenades and, in the Balcon del Mediterraneo, a giant single-jet fountain, Benidorm could surprise you.

Facilities

The beaches are perfect for sun worshippers and there’s a water park too. Check out the wealth of family friendly bars and cafes. Must see Explore the quaint winding streets of Old Benidorm. Approx 60 minutes from the airport.

Beaches

Begin with Benidorm – its two Blue Flag beaches drawing the crowds with bags of bars and watersports. There’s a sandy beach and a series of coves in the quieter Calpe area, and Cala Finestrat has a small sandy bay. Albir is decidedly relaxing, with a pebble shore.

Places to see

For a Moorish metropolitan day, visit Alicante and its castle. Stunning scenery rewards the mountain climb to Guadalest. There are castles at inland Elda and Villena, and Elche has a basilica, botanical gardens, and a forest of a million palm trees. For family fun, there’s Aqualand and Terra Mitica theme park.

Eating out

Oranges and lemons, grapes and grapefruits, clementines and satsumas are all locally grown and mouthwateringly good! Almonds and herby honey from here, feature in many delicious desserts. And sample the wines of the region – the dry wines of Alicante come with a kick and make a great aperitif.

Shopping

Quality and craftsmanship combine in the fabulous leather fashion goods. The region is renowned for its shoes. Carved wood and hand painted pottery make arty and inexpensive souvenirs. And nearby Murcia is the manufacturing base for fine rugs and carpets. Try local markets as well as Benidorm’s big shops.

Nightlife

You can’t beat Benidorm for Costa Blanca nightlife – from its feast of discos, clubs and bars to its Old Town restaurants and people watching promenade. Elsewhere on the coast, the night scene is much more leisurely – a scattering of bars and eateries, and entertainment in several hotels.

Getting around

Local buses link the beaches of Benidorm with neighbouring resorts, though most are close enough for a more comfortable (and not too expensive) taxi. There is also a faster service to Alicante, but inland discovery is best done by car or tour coach.
