Hotel Victoria

A contemporary, well-presented property in a fantastic location just a short walk from Levante Beach, the Hotel Victoria is an ideal spot to enjoy the best of Benidorm. There’s a nice big pool, along with another for the kids and plenty of sports and activities to get involved in. There’s a gym with massages available, and the restaurant has a lovely pool view. The hotel hosts live entertainment in the evening, and because the location is so good, you’re super-close to the old and new towns with all the bars, shops and eateries.

Overview of Benidorm

A popular spot for tourists looking at holidays to Costa Blanca, Benidorm has everything you need for a sun-drenched European escape. The white sands of Levante Beach are oh-so-inviting and just a five-minute walk from the Hotel Victoria. There are limitless bars, cafés and eateries to hunker down and take in the view. The cobbled streets and markets make for a lovely late afternoon stroll, and there’s serious adventure to be found here too with the Terra Mitica theme park and Aqualandia water park both nearby if you fancy some family fun.

Things to do in Benidorm

Levante Beach, by the Hotel Victoria, is the place to be for lazy days by the waves, and Poniente Beach has a lot going on too. The promenade alongside it is a bustling spot with plenty of bars and eateries to explore. If you’re looking for a more tranquil beach near the town centre, Malpas is a small stretch that doesn’t get too busy. The fort in Alicante is worth a look as well, and you can swim with dolphins over in Mundomar. In short, there’s plenty here to keep the whole family occupied. Whether you’re looking for round-the-clock entertainment or simple beach days topping up the tan, you can do it in Benidorm. The weather is perfect, the beaches are ideal, and there’s plenty of culture to take in too.

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.
