Benidorm

Travel Guide
Benidorm

This sunny city of high-rises is the Costa Blanca’s most popular resort town. Swim or snorkel in the clear water or hike in the mountains that surround the city.

Relax in the beachside resort town of Benidorm, one of the most popular destinations in Spain. High-rises, long stretches of beach and dramatic mountains are the city’s main drawcards. Go hiking, swimming and party throughout the year in this sun-drenched Costa Blanca town.

Enjoy breakfast on the Levante Beach promenade and then take a walk along the busy beachfront, which is lined with bazaars. Gaze over the sea from the Balcón del Mediterráneo, which lies on the point of a peninsula.

Spend a day on the water. Cool off by swimming in the clean and clear ocean. Kayaking and catamaran tours depart from the beaches of Levante and Poniente. Join a scuba-diving boat that leaves from the harbour to Benidorm Island, which lies just off the coast.

Once you’ve exhausted Benidorm’s watersports, enjoy the area’s land-based activities. Play beach volleyball on a white-sand beach, learn boules or hit some golf balls at the sports pavilion. The Puig Campana mountain in the Sierra Helada National Park on the outskirts of town offer a beautiful place to hike or cycle.

Bring the family to the city’s fun waterparks or the Terra Natura animal sanctuary. Featuring 200 species, the sanctuary will introduce you to the area’s impressive wildlife.

Benidorm is as exciting by night as it is in the sun. Watch a show at a gala dinner, see a burlesque show or visit a nightclub and dance to techno music until the next morning.

Discover the city on foot or hire a Segway to get around. Since the beach is near the hotel district, you will not need to travel far. Visit Calpe, Altea and Villajoyosa nearby by car or bus. In these beachside towns you can walk along the beaches, tour heritage buildings and shop for crafts by local artisans. Drink sangria, eat tapas and be sure to taste the San Blas cake, a Costa Blanca specialty.
