Where to stay in Benidorm

The Waterfront is ideal for those who wish to be just steps away from the golden beaches. There is a multitude of luxury hotels to be found in the high-rise buildings that line the beaches, and they provide excellent views of the aquamarine sea that stretches to the horizon. It can be worthwhile splashing out that little bit extra on these high-rise hotels if your main goal is to sunbathe during the day and then bar hop, munch on tapas or head to a fiesta at night.
The Old Town, Altea, is a 10-minute drive from Benidorm. It contains numerous hotels dotted about its charming maze of cobbled streets. Even if you choose not to stay here, it is well worth a visit as it offers a glimpse into a more authentic Spanish way of life. To truly experience the atmosphere, we suggest traversing on foot, experiencing the city and discovering tiny cafes for a thirst-quenching beverage. Another worthwhile sight is the Iglesia de San Jaime y Santa Ana, an old 18th century church located on edge of El Castell. It’s famed for its blue domes, it overlooks the sea in a stunning picturesque setting.

What to see in Benidorm

Benidorm’s is most known for its beautiful beaches. There are three major beaches: Playa de Levante, Playa de Mal Pas and Playa de Poniente. Each of these beaches holds a blue flag, the EU provided standard of quality. Levante is the iconic crescent of sand with the skyscraper backdrop. Popular in the summer months, Levante is a lively beach, but you will always be able to find a peaceful spot. Poniente, whilst just next to Levante, has a quieter atmosphere and caters more towards families.
For those of you travelling with kids there are many family oriented theme parks located on the outskirts of the city; Aqualandia, Mundomar and Terra Mitica. Aqualandia and Mundomar can be visited together as they are sister parks. Located next to each other, Aqualandia is a paradise of water slides whilst Mundomar provides the delights of close encounters with marine life. Terra Mitica is a fun park slightly closer to the city and has a Greek, Egyptian and Roman theme.
Benidorm being a big party town, it may be worth planning your trip to visit one of its many big festivals. The city plays host to many music, gastronomic and art festivals throughout the summer. The dates of these festivals vary, so it’s wise to check before you book your hotel.
For nature lovers, the Sierra Helada is the perfect place to soothe the senses. A huge natural park, it covers large parts of the coastline and encompasses rugged limestone rocks and Aleppo pine trees. Make sure to wear good shoes for the twisty path that leads up to Albir Lighthouse, and then enjoy the tremendous view of the sea.

The winter months are mild, with gentle breezes coming off the sea, and the beaches are quieter. This is also low season, and with the weather still being very pleasant it can be an ideal time to visit. At this time of year, you are likely to find lower prices and some good hotel deals.

How to get around Benidorm

Benidorm’s Old Town is best experienced on foot. However, for the rest of the city, we recommend the public transport system. A reliable bus service offers low fares and generally runs on time, and stops are close together so that you don’t have to walk too far. In addition, there is a tram service that runs throughout the city. As an added bonus, it extends to Alicante, the next city along the coast, which is where the airport is located.
