Introduction to Benidorm
When it comes to beaches, activities, entertainment and food and drink, Benidorm leaves visitors of all ages spoilt for choice. The Costa Blanca’s premier resort has a dramatic high- rise skyline and two beautiful Blue Flag beaches. Explore Old Town where the quaint winding streets allow a glimpse of the more traditional Benidorm.
Benidorm’s beautiful bay is split into two sandy crescents by a rock promontory, once the site of a commanding castle. The twin beaches add up to 3 miles of fine golden sand and most of the action takes place along the east beach, Playa de Levante. The west beach, Playa de Poniente, is longer and less crowded, and its shoreline is rock free. Here you will find a bit more privacy.
Benidorm has a lot more to offer than just beautiful beaches. Aqualandia, a thrilling water park – said to be the largest in Europe – certainly makes a big splash with visitors. Next door to Aqualandia is Mundomar, Costa Blanca’s ‘SeaWorld’, which has a colourful array of toucans, flamingoes, bats and birds. Just outside Benidorm is Terra Mítica, over a million square metres of theme park based on the ancient civilisations of Egypt, Iberia, Rome, Greece and the Barbary Coast. Terra Natura will take you around the world to see people and animals in their native settings and natural habitats. Meet Elvis, Dracula and a host of other familiar faces at Museo de Cera, Benidorm’s wax museum.
Go on a shopping spree in Benidorm and buy souvenirs to take home or anything else you may need. Along Avenida del Mediterráneo and near Triangular Square, you will find several leather shops, and the small shopping bazaars sell cheap T-shirts, beachwear and sundresses. And after the busy or relaxed day, enjoy the legendary nightlife with the liveliest entertainment, featuring variety of disco pubs and cabaret bars along Avenida del Mediterráneo and Calle Ibiza
