The Costa Blanca’s boldest resort
Benidorm is bold, brash and buzzing – just the way its thousands of returning visitors like it. Situated on the sun-soaked Costa Blanca, Benidorm is a high-rise, high-attitude haven for holidaymakers who like their holiday lively and loud. This larger than life destination is well-known for its beaches, bars and dedicated following of international tourists.
From bars to beaches
Benidorm comes alive after dark with comedians, cabaret, drag queens and clowns. Night-owls will find the majority of bars and pubs located in The Square, which is perfectly placed in Benidorm’s town centre. Keep the party going until sunrise on the ‘Top Road’, where you’ll find a cluster of super clubs and big name DJs. Daytime bliss can be found on Benidorm’s two stunning sweeps of beach, Levante to the east and Poniente to the west. Both have clean, soft sand and clear, safe water.
Places to eat, shop and see
Benidorm’s choice of restaurants and cafes is impressive; food ranges from Sunday roasts to gourmet gastronomy, from traditional Spanish tapas to McDonalds. Wander into the Old Town for more traditional eateries and a real taste of Benidorm’s authentic Spanish culture. With cobbled streets and a maze of shops and restaurants, the Old Town is a charming break from the electric atmosphere of modern Benidorm. A variety of waterparks, theme parks and nature reserves lie just outside the town centre. Venture further afield to Alicante (50 minutes by car) for streets lined with shops and a pretty port overlooked by a castle.
Things to do in Benidorm
On the beach in Benidorm
With over 1.2 miles of golden sand, Levante Beach is the perfect place for a day spent by the sea. Pick a spot, settle in the sunshine and relax, safe in the knowledge that there are key facilities such as toilets, showers and shops close by.
Sunbeds can be pricey so pack some beach towels to lie on.
Eat and drink in Benidorm
Benidorm Old Town is a world away from the bright lights and noise of its modern counterpart. The charming, traditional restaurants found here serve delicious tapas and fresh fish. Pull up a chair on the cobbled streets and enjoy an authentic Spanish dish whilst watching the world pass by.
Tapas are small, tasty dishes usually ordered in 4s or 5s; they’re the perfect size for sharing and for trying different things.
After drinks in The Square, hail a taxi and head to the epic Top Road. If you’re in the mood for dancing then this row of super-clubs will see you through to dawn – most of them are open until 8am. Penelopes and KU Benidorm have been going for years and come highly recommended.
Buying drinks in The Square will be cheaper than in the Top Road clubs themselves.
Shopping in Benidorm
Benidorm’s indoor market is situated on Calle Girona; it’s open every day other than Sunday and is especially popular with tourists, selling a variety of British goods. Exchange holiday money at Sheila’s or find your ideal holiday read at Browse Awhile Bookstore.
Cast members from ITV’s Benidorm are said to shop here whilst filming nearby.
Things to see in Benidorm
Aqualandia was Spain’s first water park and has earned a well-deserved reputation as being fun, safe and clean. There are water rides to suit every age and swimming level, from ‘infantile’ to ‘radical’ attractions. Exciting, relaxing and a great way to cool down on a hot day in the Spanish sun.
Keep the cost of the trip down by bringing your own food and drink, which can be enjoyed in pretty picnic areas.
Amigos Restaurant and Roof Terrace
Amigos Restaurant and Roof Terrace has rave reviews online, with customers praising the friendly staff, excellent food and charming atmosphere. Try the delicious Sangria, said to be the best in Benidorm, or the steak, which is cooked to perfection every time.
On Plaza Constiucion 4, is reasonably priced with fresh cocktails and a fun atmosphere. Take a seat in the sun on the terrace, Mojito in hand, and watch life in Benidorm Old Town pass you by. The owners will make you feel so welcome one visit won’t be enough.
Romeria del Corpus
The Romeria del Corpus is a traditional Andalusian fiesta that happens every year in June. It’s a vibrant, 3 day long festival which sees participants dress in colourful costume and perform dances. There’s usually a fairground and horse processions too.
Aqualandia in Benidorm
A must-visit destination for the family. This thrilling water park is home to a great range of slides and pools. There are some nice grassy areas to relax and eat. Try to buy tickets in advance.

You get what you pay for, and to stay here in Dec/ Jan is cheaper than camping. The place is always clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but adequate. The only downside for me is the thinness of the walls, you can here everything from your neighbours, but this is not uncommon at this price in Benidorm.
The best thing about my stay was...Price

Although it is now showing it's age and (like most places at this price in Benidorm) it's very basic, I find it very convenient for my needs and have been there for the last 5 years in December. The staff are helpful and over 12 days the cleaner visited 3 times
The best thing about my stay was...The weather

El faro accomodation
William rickard, Wales in the uk
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Apartment very clean and tidy , pool area a bit tired but more than adequate. Bar area only adequate. Unfortunately the staff only did their job and nothing more. Would have classed it as an 8 out of ten if they had been more friendly. Having sai all that we had a great holiday and I would recommend the place.
The best thing about my stay was...The closeness to the beach and sea views.

Not for those that want 5 star for 2 star money
Mrs Linda Bibby, UK
El faro is great for a base. Rooms are very clean but old. Bed and bedding very clean. All with fridge, microwave TV and towels.The pool and pool area are well kept with plenty of sunbeds.This hotel does attract young people celebrating stag and hen parties but we found them fun a little noisy but very polite. Live and let live.
The best thing about my stay was...The views from each balcony face the beach - beautiful.

Christmas in Benidorm
Colin, Los Gallardos Spain
We stopped her for Christmas as a group of 5 staying in 3 separate rooms. The rooms were clean but a bit dated & lacking in basic things like a kettle & something to light the gas cooker. when we asked at reception these things were provided straight away with out any problems. We were all given rooms together on the same floor & the rooms all had great views. Overall for the price we paid it wasn't a bad deal & we would stop there again.
The best thing about my stay was...The views & the helpful staff

Basic but great location
Sam L, Stafford
The hotel is basic but that's all we wanted - a base. We also got a very good deal - so for the price it was great. It is based out if the hustle & bustle & is a 2 minute walk from a quiet beach. We stayed local for eating out & just ventured into town on the evening. It's only a 20 min walk or 5 min taxi. I went with a group of ladies but happily go back with my husband & son.
The best thing about my stay was...The location
