Resort Info

Benidorm

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.

Top Tip:

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.

Top Tip:

Tapas are small, tasty dishes usually ordered in 4s or 5s; they’re the perfect size for sharing and for trying different things.

Benidorm nightlife

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. 

Top Tip:

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.

Top Tip:

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.

Top Tip:

Keep the cost of the trip down by bringing your own food and drink, which can be enjoyed in pretty picnic areas.

 

We Recommend

 

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.

Bar 69

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.

OK Hotel

Just returned from a 7 night break in the Helios. Overall the experience was good and would probably return. Our check-in was nice and quick and had a road/pool view room. Only niggle was the room walls are quite thin. I would be woken by the lift in the night and next doors wardrobes banging and trying to get into their safe. Rooms are clean, spacious and tidy and balcony was quite large. We paid for b&b but only attended breakfast twice. The area was too crowded and rowdy, people grabbing food like they have never eaten before then leaving it all for the waiters to take away. Ques were too long for something cooked so I never bothered. The food I did eat was quite nice. Pool area was clean and always beds available to use.

The best thing about my stay was...

Supurb Hotel

Excellent Hotel , really enjoyed our stay. The food on offer was varied and well presented, the rooms are modern and clean, the pool area and garden are very well presented. Also loved the fact the Hotel was very strict with saving sunbeds with towels , they have a policey that more hotels should follow. All in all a very enjoyable holiday, and as a frequent visitor to Benidorm will definately be returning.
