Overview of Benidorm

You could head on holidays to Costa Blanca for years and years and still never sample all the beaches that run for more than 200 kilometres across this beautiful stretch of coastline.

Benidorm is the star of the show in Costa Blanca. Here, you’ll feel right at home because of the traditionally British sights and sounds that surround the Sandos Monaco Hotel and Spa.

Benidorm does everything in big measures. The buildings are tall, the beaches are long and the evening entertainment is larger than life. Plus, there’s an old town that’s maintained its traditional Spanish feel thanks to cobbled streets, packed alleyways and tapas joints.

Things to do in Benidorm

The Sandos Monaco Hotel and Spa is well-placed for you to make the most of Benidorm’s lively new town. The resort has a distinctly British feel, so if you fancy a fry-up or a pint of Guinness in an Irish bar, you’ll find it here. When the sun goes down, the strip comes alive with bars where you can dance until dawn.

Plus, you’re also only 500 metres away from the golden sands of Levante Beach. During your stay, you may hear Levante Beach referred to as ‘sunrise beach’. That’s because, if you haven’t had a wild night on the strip the night before, it’s a great spot to watch the sun come up with a coffee. During the day, the surprisingly shallow waters are packed with water sports ranging from banana boats to jet skis. If you head to the far end of the beach, there’s even a cable-skiing station.

Whether you want to lounge on the sands, party long into the night or enjoy all of your home comforts, Benidorm is a great spot to head on a seaside holiday where you can soak up the sun.

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.
