Benidorm knows how to keep you entertained on holiday. Whether it's whizzing down waterslides during the day or partying long into the night, you'll never be short of something to do here. The resort has a very British flavour so you'll find it just as easy to get your favourite beer or food as you will to try some tasty new Spanish treats, whether you're on an All Inclusive Benidorm trip or travelling Self Catering.
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.
