About Benidorm, Spain
Along the eastern coast of Spain lies a seaside resort town called Benidorm. Now a popular holiday destination, known for its Mediterranean nightlife, Benidorm was once a tiny fishing village. Rows of skyscrapers, bars, palm-lined promenades, and sandy beaches now attract excited tourists all year round, supplying the area with its main economy. Visitors from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, and the UK frequently join Benidorm’s local population of 69,010 to make the most of its 14.87 square miles.
Popular Destinations in Benidorm
Looking for activities once your private jet arrives in Benidorm? Free cabarets and lively night activities may attract some, but there are many spots worth visiting. Some notable attractions are listed below:
Levante Beach: Postcards from the area most frequently display this beach with its forest of blue parasols, long line of skyscrapers, and arc of pale golden sand. In the summer months, Levante Beach can become quite crowded, but visitors can usually find a place to set up camp and enjoy the waves, the sand, the sun, and various water sports. For those looking for a bite to eat, North European-style pubs and restaurants can be found along the base of the apartment blocks.
Poniente Beach: Directly next door to Levante, this beach property caters to a more family-oriented, quieter crowd – even though they share the same stretch of beach. A bonus here, due to recent funding, is that the beach is accessible to wheelchairs. As with many of this area’s beaches, those who do not consider themselves strong swimmers should take care not to wade out too far, as they could get caught in one of the strong undercurrents.
Mundomar: Popular for its wealth of birds and sea animals, this modern wildlife park features demonstrations and animal shows that are a great fit for both children and adults. Keepers and trainers have a strong rapport with the sea lions and dolphins. Visitors can get up close and personal with a variety of primates, penguins, and sea otters. To ensure an amazing experience, reservations for swimming with sea lions and dolphins should be booked in advance.
Terra Mitica: Inspired by ancient civilizations, Terra Mitica is one of Spain’s largest theme parks. Choreographed street shows entertain while roller coaster rides decorate the Greece, Egypt, and Rome themed areas. Those purchasing tickets here can also enjoy the amusement and water rides at Iberia Park, which is right next-door. Ibera Park also has a theme, which is based on the ancient history of Spain.
Sierra Helada: Visitors wishing to escape the sky-high buildings and bustling nightlife can leave it all behind in Sierra Helada. This national park covers a large span of coastline with a bonus at the end of the paved road, for those who bring their hiking shoes. The Albir Lighthouse lies at the end of the twisting path and awaits those willing to hike through the Aleppo pines and limestone rocks. For adventurers who enjoy a challenge, at 300 meters above sea level is the highest point of the park and the park’s radio masts.
