Why Benidorm

A Benidorm holiday means experiencing a side of Spain that is totally different. Being a multicultural resort means some of what you find there will seem quite familiar, but with the addition of great nightlife and affordable hotels.

Benidorm is one of the liveliest holiday resorts on Spain’s Costa Blanca, and features enough attractions to keep people of all ages entertained! It is a place that longs to please visitors meaning every part of the resort is geared towards making your holidays in Spain truly memorable.

When to go

Climate

Benidorm’s micro-climate year round is courtesy of the mountains surrounding the town. It enjoys some 3,400 hours of sunshine a year and an average annual temperature on the coast of 18 degrees Celsius (64 Fahrenheit). Between December and March the temperature of the sea water is around 15 degrees Celsius (59 Fahrenheit).

Where to go/stay

Undeniably the beaches are what most tourists come here for be it either soft clean sands of Levante and the more sedate Poniente’s. Both beaches are Blue Flag certified. Levante is home to the majority of Benidorm’s beachfront action and features sea slides, numerous water sports making this part of the Mediterranean a watery playground. In total there are 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) of safe, sandy beach in Benidorm.

As a purpose-built beach resort everything is about entertainment meaning there is not much to see for those looking for culture, but the old town still has some reminders of the past especially around the old church. The surrounding towns and villages which are less than 20 minutes drive by car or 30 minutes by bus are well worth exploring for anyone looking for "Real Spain".

Things to do

Benidorm’s location at the edge of the warm blue waters of the Mediterranean means you’d be foolish not to take a boat trip. At nearby Peacock Island you can observe the Mediterranean’s wildlife through the glass-bottomed boat.

After hitting the surf and soaking up the sun all day Benidorm transforms after dark. Whether you to leisurely dine in an open-air taverna, sip cocktails at a beach bar or you’re energetic enough for an all-night rave, you’ll find all that and more in Benidorm.

While party-goers are well looked after in Benidorm the resort doesn’t forget about those holidaymakers who are looking for a more relaxing retreat. You can stroll the cobbles of the old town, or take a day trip to Denia nearby with its marina, chic boutiques and quieter slice of Costa Blanca life.

If you’re looking to experience Benidorm in small bites stay at Poniente beach. Here you can easily relax on the sands in quieter surroundings than the neighbouring Benidorm.
