Flamingo Beach Resort

Boasting vibrant and fresh bedrooms, as well as three swimming pools, two pool bars and a buffet restaurant, the Flamingo Beach Resort is perfectly equipped to offer plenty of relaxation. That’s a pretty high mantle, given how lively the region usually is. A welcome antidote to the buzz of wider Benidorm, the Flamingo Beach Resort is an adults-only complex that prides itself on having a contemporary and quiet ambience, while still being fantastically close to the centre of Benidorm and the area’s attractions.

Overview of Benidorm

For guaranteed family-friendly fun or lively nightlife adventures, you can’t beat holidays to the Costa Blanca. One of the most popular destinations in Spain, this tourist-heavy region has risen to the challenge of providing a little of everything, to counter the old adage that you can’t please all of the people, all of the time. Benidorm is the jewel in the Costa Blanca crown and really knows how to keep a variety of holidaymakers entertained. There’s a distinctly British vibe to the resort, but with the added bonus of great weather, plenty of gorgeous beach to stretch out on and more child-friendly attractions than you can shake a stick at.

Things to do in Benidorm

Beach life comes as standard in Benidorm, as there are six kilometres of sand to explore. The shallow shoreline is great for youngsters that want to paddle, but swim out a little further and you’ll find that watersports are very much on offer too. Restaurants, bars and cafes flank the sands, so you’ll never have to go hungry during a lazy beach day. For some adrenaline-pumping fun, you’ll be spoiled for choice in Benidorm with its many adventure attractions, waterparks, theme parks, wildlife experiences and traditional theme parks that can cater for visitors of all ages. You’ll find most attractions are within easy walking distance, though there are regular buses to take advantage of as well.

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.
