Benidorm Holidays

Benidorm is a popular resort city on the sunny Costa Blanca of Spain. Having long ago shed its "Brits abroad" reputation, Benidorm has reinvented itself as one of the best Spanish beach destinations, from the package holiday deals to the luxurious hotel complexes.

Soaking up the sun on the Costa Blanca

Sun-baked elderly women smoking cigarettes on mobility scooters, burly blokes drinking beer in typically British pubs, families on a mission to do absolutely everything on the cheap…The hilarious hit TV series has done well to enhance the boozy "Brits Abroad" image. But in reality Benidorm is so much more than touristy tavernas and tacky trinkets. Cast aside the crude stereotypes and give Benidorm a chance – we think you'll be pleasantly surprised. And after all, there must be something about the resort that keeps even the most conservative of Brits returning year after year.

Benidorm offers traditional seaside holidays at a very attractive price. It's a home from home for those that don't like to venture too far from the nest and offers all of the brands and amenities you'd find at home. Plus it's just a short two hour flight from the UK so whether you're a nervous flyer, travelling with fidgety kids or just too excited to wait any longer, Benidorm is a great option.

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.

Accessible beaches backed by an award-winning promenade

Benidorm's two beaches, Levante and Poniente, are dotted with sunbathers all year round. Both beaches are really scenic – as long as there's not an elderly bloke in tight swim shorts nearby that is – and they are immaculately clean, which makes them great for families. Their sweeping golden sands stretch for a whopping 5 kilometres, so even amongst the sea of beach towels, buckets and spades you'll always find a spot to soak up the sun. Just don't forget to slap on the sun cream, or you'll end up looking like one of the TV series stereotypes.

Thanks to Madge, mobility scooters are back in fashion and they're a really popular mode of transport for getting around. Because of this, most hotels have ramp access and beaches have raised platforms, making Benidorm one of the only holiday destinations in the world that the elderly and disabled can enjoy dipping their toes in the warm waves. Take a break from topping up your tan and admire the ever-impressive sand sculptures, splash through the waves on a banana boat or take a stroll along the award-winning West Beach Promenade.

Where Old and New sit side by side

The New Town, which sits behind Levante Beach, is lively, loud, and if you're looking for an authentic Spanish experience, it's not for you. However, if you're looking for bundles of fun in the sun then this round-the-clock entertainment hub is the place to be. The hundreds of bars here serve up great value pub grub during the day whilst major sporting matches play out on the big screen. Shopping-wise, supermarkets here are stocked with familiar brands, and it's the place to go if your faithful old inflatable pops or you fancy some new flip flops.

After the sun sets over the Mediterranean Sea and the neon lights of Benidorm's evening entertainment flicker to life, set out to explore what this vibrant resort has to offer. Whether you're a bingo fanatic or a karaoke queen, there is something for everyone in Benidorm. And we mean it. Quizzes, cabaret, live bands and comedians, Benidorm has the lot. Even the King himself can be seen shaking his hips on a few select stages.

Away from the bright lights of Benidorm's New Town is the equally-imaginatively-named Old Town. Dating back to year 1325, it's about as Spanish as you can get. It's a typically Spanish village, and many argue that the Old Town is the "real Benidorm". Wander the winding cobbled alleyways, lined by quaint boutiques and romantic restaurants and you'll soon see this place stands in stark contrast to its boisterous neighbour. Admire the beautiful Baroque domed church before walking Place del Castell's tiled walkway down to the balcony, which has stunning views over the sea and neighbouring Poniente beach. The many old-style cafés and bars are a great place to drop your shopping bags and watch the world go by, and when you're feeling peckish, meander your way over to Tapas Alley. Here they serve the most authentic of Spanish dishes at just a fraction of the price of other popular resorts.

From rollercoasters to rolling hills

In fact, food everywhere in Benidorm is pleasantly affordable. And whether you fancy a Full English or a Chinese, or maybe fast food on the promenade, there's something for everyone too, from the fussiest eaters to the finest diners. Kids are really well catered for, and plenty of places offer three course meals for under €12 – perfect for larger families or anyone on a budget and the portions are generally huge, too.

If you're bored of sunbathing or busy beaches just aren't your thing, there are plenty of activities to keep all the family entertained. Jeep safaris, paintballing, guided tours, diving, water parks…the list goes on. The dolphin shows at Mundomar are always a hit with the kids, whereas adrenaline junkies will love Terra Mitica, Spain's largest theme park. Walkers will enjoy the climb up through the Cerro Canfali hills, and the view from the top will take your breath away – if you have any left, that is.

Just a ten minute bus ride away, traditional Spanish towns are just waiting to be explored. They're a million miles away – figuratively of course – from the high-rise skyline of Benidorm, and make for a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the holiday world's New York. Popular coach excursions regularly head to the mountain fortress at Guadalest and the medieval town of Altea. Stop in at the magnificent Virgin del Consuelo, a blue-domed church decorated with white-glazed ceramic tiles, and if you can, pay a visit on a Tuesday when the town's charming outdoor market is held. The city of Alicante is just 40 minutes away, and offers chic shopping and something a little more sophisticated.

With so much choice in Benidorm, you can tailor your holiday to anything you want it to be. For a quiet, romantic break, book to stay in the historic Old Town, but if you're looking for fun in the sun, then Benidorm's lively New Town is right up your street, so to speak. Even if you decide you're not a fan, it's still a great base from which to explore the beautiful Costa Blanca.
