Things to do in Benidorm

The Costa Blanca’s tourist capital and the Mediterranean’s equivalent of New York! Like it or dislike it, Benidorm is a must see for everyone, even if it is just so that you can say ‘I’ve been there’! It is one of the easiest places in the world to relax and simply do nothing! Over recent years Benidorm has been transformed into a major tourist destination.

Benidorm has two glorious beaches, Poniente and Levante, both of which are backed by beautiful promenades as well as a small marina. The bustling, historic old quarter is well worth a visit and in particular the three plazas of Santa Ana, Castelar and Castell from which there are breathtaking views of both beaches and the impressive skyline. The old town, twice weekly market, and the 'out of town' mall offer the avid shopper more than enough choice. The three golf courses range from a championship 18 hole to a 9 hole pitch and putt and not to be forgotten are theme, water and animal parks to visit. There is an incredible selection of entertainment and excitement for people, including cabaret shows, nightclubs and every type of bar you could wish for from sophisticated to Irish. A wide range of restaurants of all nationalities from Spanish tapas  to a la Carte and the inevitable English breakfast!


1.- Take a walk around the old town. There you will find several charming places, such as the Church of San Jaime and Santa Ana.

2.- Visit the Mirador del Castillo de Benidorm. Mandatory at sunset. The sunsets from here overlooking the two beaches are very top.

3.- Stroll along the promenade of Benidorm both Levante beach and Poniente beach, although the most moving is the Levante area, especially at night.

4.- Take a boat trip to the Island of Benidorm, the island that you have right opposite and is one of the icons of the city.

5.- Take the boat from the port that takes you all the coast until Alicante and continues the excursion until the island of Tabarca. Its crystalline waters are Marine Reserve of the Mediterranean.

6.- Explore the surroundings of Benidorm and discover charming villages like Villajoyosa, Altea, Calpe or Guadalest.

7.- Enjoy a beer with live music in bars like the Heart Break on Levante Beach.
