With an average temperature of 20º C, even just being in Benidorm is relaxing. The simple pleasures of a holiday, such as walking in the sand, swimming in the sea or hiking can help you switch off and relax. The Sierra Helada Nature Park is a particularly popular place to relax amidst some really beautiful scenery.
What do you do personally to switch off?
This is actually personally my favourite place to switch off… I normally take my bicycle and ride through the Nature Park of Sierra Helada. I love coming to the cliffs of the mountain and see the wonderful combination of sea and earth.
If you had one day to relax in Benidorm, what would you do?
I’d start the morning off with a Mediterranean breakfast somewhere by the coast and then head straight to the beach. When it comes to relaxation, you can’t get better than laying on a sun-bed or walking near the water front.
At lunch, I’d enjoy a Valencian Paella in one of the restaurants located on the boardwalk by Poniente Beach and then have a welcome “Siesta” for about an hour… it’s the perfect way to recharge your batteries.
After lunch, I’d recommend going for a leisurely stroll in Benidorm Old Town to see the Old Castle which is a brilliant landmark. By dinner time, you’d be ready to taste the most typical Spanish Tapas and Pintxos combined with Sangria in the evening.
Where are the best places to relax in Benidorm?
I can’t stop talking about Sierra Helada Nature Park – because it really is worth a visit! The Cross of Benidorm and the Punta del Cavall cliffs are both located there and a brilliant places to relax.
The Punta del Cavall cliffs are, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean coast and is located just a 25 minute walk from the town.
What is the Cross of Benidorm?
It’s a landmark located on top of the mountain. Local superstition is that the cross protects the entire town… similar to the Corcovado Christ in Rio de Janeiro. As you can imagine the view from the cross is wonderful.
