The Costa that doesn’t cost a lot

While the famous ITV show of the same name isn't a completely accurate depiction of life in Benidorm, there are elements of truth. The sun is always shining, there is a bustling nightlife and there is a strong British presence.

Families play in the theme and waterparks, couples relax in the old quarter, and singles bounce from club to club, there is something for everyone to enjoy on holidays to Benidorm. The phenomenal beaches are the all-round crowd pleaser with enough space to fit everyone.

Places to Visit


Big Bang. Zigzag. Splash. With rides named like these, it's all go at this aqua park. One of the biggest in Europe it's a fantastic place to spend the day. And on this trip, we'll whisk you there and leave you to enjoy it attractions in your own way. If you're yearning for the burn, hurtle down the high chutes of Big Bang. Race each other on the mega-multitrack slides of Splash. Or scream down the switchbacks of the Zigzag. Want something slower? Head for the gentle river rapids, waterfalls and wave pool or hit the sunbathing terraces with a cold drink and top up your tan. The tots can join in the frolics at Adventureland - showering under fountains, playing with water toys and slipping down mini-slides. Oh, and the Park offers up restaurants and snack bars for when you get peckish, too. A fun-filled day for all ages.


Mundomar is serious fun for all the family. A much-loved marine and bird park near Alicante, it offers up everything from dolphin and sealion shows to exotic birds, monkeys, penguins and loads of other wildlife wonders. With this ticket-only trip, you'll have the whole day to rove around the park taking in everything under your own steam. Train your eyes on turtles as they glide through the water. Gaze at beautiful owls and strutting flamingos. And giggle at the goings-on at the penguin pool. Or even hold a fish out for the sealions to snitch from your fingers. Whatever you do though, make sure you see the shows. These star the park's playful parrots and sealions and everyone's favourites - loveable dolphins. Grab a seat and watch entranced as troupes of these graceful mammals leap, splash and surge through their pool in a series of perfectly choreographed manouevres. A memorable and educational day.

Busy beach area

The tourism industry boomed in Benidorm initially because of the selection of beaches available on this part of the Costa Blanca coast.

The Levante Beach is the star of the show with a long stretch of golden sands that is dotted with beach activities. A wide range of water sports are available with everything from jet skis and banana boats to pedalos and fishing trips available. You're only ever a stone throw away from a pub or bar facing the beach too.

To counter the excitement and activity of Levante Beach, there are two smaller, quieter patches close by. Poniente, to the west, is a relaxing spot while Malpas is a secluded sunbathing area.

Plenty to see and do

There is a massive range of attractions and activities to enjoy in and around this coastal town. With a range of leisurely adventures to thrilling rides and events, boredom is an impossibility in Benidorm.

For families there is a huge range of activities to enjoy but there are three stand out options. The Mundomar animal park allows tourists to watch and interact with many different friendly sea creatures. Aqualandia has been a staple of Benidorm for a number of years now yet it still feels fresh with a wide array of exciting slides. Terra Mitica is a Mediterranean themed park with five worlds that share rollercoasters, games and shows.

It's not all thrills and spills in Benidorm though thanks to the areas of genuine beauty and culture. Removed from the hustle and bustle of the shops and bar-laden area is Benidorm's Old Town. There is a refreshing Spanish atmosphere here with traditional restaurants and terrific coastal views. Out of town the Placa del Castell is another historic area with great views to the marina and gain an even better vantage point by hiking up to the La Cruz de Benidorm.

Nights out in Benidorm

Nights in Benidorm are famous for their vibrant and lively atmospheres with a massive range of excitement and entertainment spread throughout the town.

The line of pubs and bars along the beachfront stay open long into the night and the Avenue de Mallorca is the best place to experience a wild night out in Benidorm. Head up to the Avenida de la Comunitat Valenciana where there is a collection of world famous nightclubs including Pacha, Space and Haçienda.

There is a wide range of entertainment available too with family friendly performances as well as not-so-family friendly entertainers. Many bars and hotels host tribute acts, fresh singers or karaoke nights while the Benidorm Palace is a famous dinner venue that features carnival-like showgirls performing every night.

Shop for anything

Benidorm is a built up area full of shops that cater for all of your holiday needs. There is a great area of shops along the Avenue de Mediterraneo with world famous brands like Zara, Lacoste as well as dozens of independent fashion stores.

There are the typical gift shop delights alongside jewellery stores, sports shops, toy shops, perfume stores and even a British goods seller.

Hundreds of bars and restaurants

Benidorm is a built up tourist destination with hundreds of places to eat spread throughout the hotels, streets and beach front. The majority of the aforementioned bars serve food up until a certain time before their focus switches to music and drinking.

Almost any cuisine imaginable is available from somewhere in Benidorm but there will be a prominence of British and Irish pub food as well as Spanish options like tapas.

Pedestrianised town

Benidorm is a 40 minute drive from Alicante Airport and there are plenty of bus transfers that make this trip.

Much of the town is pedestrianised so getting to the beach and some attractions from your hotel is easy enough.

You can walk to Aqualandia and Mundomar but getting a taxi is cheap and convenient too. Terra Mitica is based out of town so grab the regular free bus or a taxi to reach the theme park.

Best time of year to visit

Benidorm's climate is a major factor that makes the resort so popular. From April to October the daily temperatures will reach the 20s in degrees Celsius while July and August could see temperatures pass 30C.

Visitor numbers soar at the height of summer with families with kids and university students all flocking to enjoy the bright lights of Benidorm. The months either side of school holidays will be marginally calmer.

During the winter the family attractions close for the off-season and so do many of the bars and clubs.
