Overview of Benidorm

The entertainment capital of Costa Blanca, Benidorm is a one-stop fun haven and has just the right amount of variety to fill a holiday all day, every day. Always popular, holidays to Benidorm offer enormous variety, from lazy beach days through to adrenaline-pumping theme parks and just about everything in between. The shopping is excellent as well, and the food, wonderfully diverse, with traditional Spanish fare and kid-friendly favourites easy to find. Few regions offer fun and sun as convincingly as Benidorm.

Things to do in Benidorm

Beach days are a must in Benidorm, and they are just a few steps away from the Ambassador Playa II. For a more secluded, peaceful stretch of sand, travelling a little further around the coastline will get you to Malpas Beach. If adventure is calling, there are plenty of water and theme parks to choose from, many tailored for a kid-friendly day out. The Terra Natura nature park is also particularly popular. And the shopping journeys from local markets to designer boutiques.

Resort Summary

The six kilometres of sand formed by Benidorm’s two main bays are a big part of its appeal. Closest to the town centre, and near to many All Inclusive Costa Blanca hotels and restaurants, is Levante beach, also known as Sunrise Beach.

If you just want a paddle then you’ll find the shores pleasingly shallow, while further out in the water is a playground for all ages. There are swinging bridges, diving boards and rafts, with any number of watersports beyond, from banana boats to jet skiing. There is even a cable-skiing station in the sea at this end of town – it’s a bit like water-skiing, but without the boat.

The other bay is Poniente Beach. It’s a big beach, with a long, pedestrianised promenade and a playground for children. You’ll find it slightly calmer than Levante, but there are still plenty of restaurants looking out to sea here. It’s worth taking the trip up to the viewing point in between the two bays, dubbed the ‘Balcon del Mediterraneo’ the balcony of the Mediterranean, for the astounding views.

There’s also the opportunity to wander through the old town, where you’ll find amazing views over the bays and an impressive range of shops and markets to explore. If you fancy going further afield, head out into Costa Blanca to explore the Mediterranean Sea, mountains and natural parks of this beautiful area.
