Hotel search

True: The city is a spectacle of sunlight, water, and sand during the day. But when the sun goes down, Benidorm lights up. This lively and celebrated nightlife is what many visitors are looking for. If you're down for open-air concerts, dancing till dawn, and an international party vibe, Benidorm won't disappoint you.

The Old Town

 

For a night with true Mediterranean soul, explore the pedestrian streets of Benidorm's old quarters. First up, share good conversation over wine and tapas. Then, head to one of the numerous cocktail bars, gay-friendly clubs, or traditional taverns that line the alleys and main drags of the city's Old Town.

 

Marrs Bar

 

This cozy tavern with white walls and exposed wooden beams is hidden in a narrow, cobblestone alley. Don't be fooled by the wine barrels and old-school decor; the bar hosts lively parties and plays pop-rock until the early hours.
