Benidorm offers endless possibilities: from taking a walk along the promenade, swimming in the crystal clear waters, water sports, a boat excursion to the island of Tabarca, or a wander through Benidorm’s historic quarter, perched on a promontory, the old town is in great contrast to the wide avenues of the main tourist town.
Then there are the local cultural festivals, beautiful cuisine and great shopping; indeed it’s one of the Costa Blanca’s biggest tourist centres. Complete with its fine-sand beaches, crystal waters, privileged climate and great infrastructure have all gone to give Benidorm have granted this region —also equipped with a great infrastructure of high-quality services— its well-deserved fame.
Benidorm is what you want it to be: full of fun, with a fantastic nightlife, but is also affords peace and tranquillity with its charming gardens and secluded coves. Truly a place with something for everyone, it’s no wonder it’s so popular.
Sports & nature
Benidorm’s recreational possibilities are endless. From taking a walk on the promenade or visiting the nearby park of L’Aigüera, to an exciting day in the Mediterranean Theme Park Terra Mítica. The city also has a number of sporting centres, including a sailing school, and several scuba-diving schools.
Boat excursions to the little island of Benidorm – located in middle of the inlet – depart from the harbour. Legend has it that the island is a piece of rock from nearby Mount Campana that brave Roland severed with his sword during the expeditions of Charlemagne. The diverse seabed makes it a scuba-diving paradise.
Seafood and rice dishes are the base of the local gastronomy. Paella is one of the emblematic dishes, as are shellfish, grilled or boiled and fish, fried, stewed, or in soup.
Garlic and olive oil are the main ingredients of ali-oli sauce, which accompanies many dishes and for dessert lovers, try the almond cake, turrón or home-made ice cream.
Wines, with Designation of Origin - Alicante (the prestigious seal of quality and origin given in Spain to select wines and products) should definitely be sampled. Misteleta (a sweet wine); and horchata (a drink made from tiger nuts), are both typical of the region.
Culture and history info
Benidorm’s historic centre is located on a promontory, between its two main beaches – Levante and Poniente. This is the birthplace of the city, a primitive fishing town, dominated by the church of San Jaime.
Erected in the 18th century, its bluish domes rise among an intricate network of narrow streets and alleyways, filled with picturesque little corners. The peaks of the Canfali hills lead to the Balcony of the Mediterranean, a splendid viewpoint that presents a gorgeous panoramic view of the sea.
