Travel Guide

Benidorm

Discover the beaches and all the leisure activities the star city of the Costa Blanca has to offer, as one of the main beach destinations in Spain.

Benidorm still holds a good place among the tourist destinations in Spain in spite of the bad reputation of its urban landscape, peppered with skyscrapers. An exceptional climate, clean and well-equipped beaches, options for kids, nightlife and hotels surpassed only by the great capitals all explain why millions of people book their holiday to Benidorm every year.

If what you want is to roll out your towel and sunbathe, go to the long Poniente beach with its family-friendly environment that is slightly less crowded than the popular Levante beach, which stands out not only for its comprehensive facilities, but also for its many leisure and dining options. To avoid the peak season in July and August, it might be a good idea to search for cheap holidays to Benidorm mid-season, taking advantage of its excellent climate.

Families are sure to have fun riding the attractions at the Terra Mítica theme park, enjoying the dolphin performances at the Mundomar sea life centre, or zooming down the water slides at the Aqualandia water park. After a day of fun, there’s nothing better than a walk through the old town up to the Balcony of the Mediterranean, a viewpoint where you can contemplate a magnificent sunset before dining in one of the many restaurants that you’ll find in the city.

If you want to party, you’ll be blown away by the amount of pubs and discos on offer in Benidorm, full of Spaniards and foreigners alike, dancing until dawn. During the day, go for a walk through the Serra Gelada Nature Park and take in the impressive views from its cliffs.

Benidorm is located a little over one sixty miles from Valencia and some thirty-five miles from Alicante airport, with direct bus routes. You can get there by train from Alicante or Valencia, or by bus from the main cities in mainland Spain.

If you’d like to treat yourself to a few days of relaxation and fun, look for package holidays to Benidorm and get ready to experience the Mediterranean in its purest state.

Spain is one of the best locations in the world for a beach holiday. If you like beach holidays in Benidorm then you're sure to love our cheap beach holidays to Lanzarote or our Marbella beach holidays. Book with Expedia and find out why for yourself.
