Benidorm has long been the go-to place for those seeking sun, sea, sand and an unforgettable nightlife. Located on the southeast coast of Spain, this Mediterranean resort may not be the first place to choose for a quiet break, but if you love beaches, bars and a chance to let your hair down, then the party capital of the Costa Blanca is definitely the place for you.
The peak season is when flight prices inevitably rise. In Benidorm this runs from July to September, when the weather is at its finest and there are a number of popular local festivals, including Benidorm Summer Festival and Benidorm Pride.

Since it can be quite busy in summer, one option is to escape the city for a day. There are plenty of pretty fishing villages nearby, each offering a unique insight into how Benidorm must have been before it became a popular resort. The nearby towns of Villa Joyosa, Altea or El Campello are much smaller and more peaceful by comparison.

The locals tend to take siestas, which is not a bad example to follow.
