Where to Stay

Choosing where to rent your apartment in Benidorm is very important, as the various neighbourhoods have quite different characters. The most popular area for visitors is the Levante, with its iconic skyscrapers and a very sociable bar and restaurant scene - as well as access to the 2km Playa Levante beach. The Old Town offers more in the way of authentic Spanish culture, with its maze of cobbled streets, white cottages and little bars and charming shops just waiting to be explored. The Poniente and La Cala districts to the west of the town are perfect for fans of sand and surf, and offer a quieter alternative to the town itself, while still being within a short taxi ride for a night out. The newer part of Benidorm, Rincon de Loix, has the tail end of Levante beach to itself and plenty of cafes and bars, as well as a lively indoor market.

Things to Do

Although Benidorm offers everything for a sunny beach holiday - including two blue flag beaches at Levante and Poniente - being a purpose built beach resort means it doesn’t offer much in the way of culture. However, for those prepared to travel a few miles there are some quaint villages and towns offering an authentic glimpse of Spanish life. Hire a scooter and head along the coast to Altea, perhaps the prettiest of the Costa Blanca towns. Climb the medieval cobbled streets to the hilltop old town, with its spectacular views in every direction, and enjoy a spot of lunch. Head inland through the mountains to the popular tourist town of El Castell de Guadalest, which dates back to 715 AD and has been declared a “Monument of Historical and Artistic Value”. Worth a visit for the 11th century castle alone, the town’s interesting museums and pretty buildings offer enough diversions for a day-trip.

Eating and Drinking

Benidorm is justifiably famous for its formidable nightlife: there are over 800 bars of every type and theme in the town, catering to every clientele, as well as casinos, discos, music and dancing shows and more. Competition is fierce, and prices are low. “The Square” in Levante is the location of most of the smaller late night clubs, but the bigger clubs are scattered along the Avenida Communitat Valenciana, a short taxi ride from the town centre. Benidorm has over 1,000 restaurants, cafes and snack bars serving everything from Spanish classics to British, American and Indian cuisine. For local food and wine, and quieter bars, make a detour to the Old Town with its cute winding streets and tranquil squares. Head along Calle Santo Domingo, from Plaça de lá Constitucion (known locally as “Tapas Alley”) for some great local treats.

Getting Around

Alicante Airport is Benidorm’s closest airport and daily, low-cost flights from most major European cities make Benidorm a very accessible beach resort. The train from Alicante to Benidorm is direct and takes an hour. Once you have arrived, getting around the compact town centre on foot is perfectly feasible, especially the Levante area, which is the most popular tourist spot. It takes around an hour to walk from one end of the resort to the other, and there is also an excellent local bus service - also useful for day trips to local towns such as Altea and Calpe. There are several car hire companies in the town, and at Alicante airport, for visitors who want to explore further afield: A good quality motorway links Benidorm with Madrid and Barcelona, both of which are a straightforward five hour drive away.
