Magic Aqua Rock Gardens

The Magic Aqua Rock Gardens is a little slice of Africa on Spanish soil. With a close-to-the-beach water park, a safari-inspired design and themed buffet restaurants, the hotel is truly unique.

In the pools, you’ll find a tangle of water slides and a separate splash park for the little ones. In the main pool, there’s a big screen suspended above the water, so you can jump into one of the in-water loungers and have one of the best seats in the house.

The evenings are fun-filled with discos and magic shows to kick things off. After, live musicians and have-a-go karaoke sessions bring the evening to a close.

Overview of Benidorm

The sun always seems to shine when you’re on a holiday to Costa Blanca. Whether you’re six or sixty, Costa Blanca is a place the whole family will love, thanks to the combination of old-town charm and enticing entertainment.

Benidorm is Costa Blanca’s most famous resort. Here you’ll find the biggest hotels, the wildest nightlife and the largest attractions. Plus, there’s six kilometres of beach you can lounge on. If you get down here early enough, you can even watch the sunrise. A real 24-hour destination, Costa Blanca and Benidorm have been popular with holidaymakers for decades, and it’s easy to see why.

Things to do in Benidorm

One of the joys of the Magic Aqua Rock Gardens is that it puts you in the heart of the action. Levante Beach is only 150 metres from the hotel and the local bars are within a five-minute walk.

Down on the beach, you’ll find a shallow shoreline perfect for kids and an in-water playground that’s suitable for all age groups. Around Benidorm, family-friendly attractions abound, including Aqualandia Water Park and Mundomar Animal Park.

In the evening, Benidorm really comes alive. From traditional Spanish tapas to ham, egg and chips, you’ll find a range of meals in the local bars where a lively atmosphere will bring a smile to your face.

Benidorm has a proudly British twist. So, with a stay at the Magic Aqua Rock Gardens, you’ll find a new home away from home.

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.
