Benidorm Holidays

Read more about Benidorm

An iconic beachside destination, Benidorm is the setting for countless family-friendly holidays, as well as the hit TV show of the same name. Set on the Costa Blanca, on Spain’s east coast, this resort town is hugely popular with holiday-makers who value affordable accommodation, attractive beaches and having plenty to see and do.



Beaches
Benidorm is famously fringed by the sandy Blue Flag beaches of Poniente and Levante, which offer lively bars and restaurants, playgrounds for the little ones, thrilling water sports and sunbathing spots. For something a bit quieter, head to Playa Mal Pas, a sheltered cove close to the marina, or to the rocky Cala Tio Ximo for a snorkeller’s paradise.

Food & Drink
Whether you’re looking for a home-from-home pub, a greasy spoon for a fry-up or an authentic Spanish restaurant, you’ll find it all on the streets of Benidorm. With options to suit all budgets and bars that offer regular happy hours, dining and drinking out doesn’t have to break the bank.

Culture
In Benidorm you get two destinations in one: Old Town and New Town. The Old Town is the traditional, historic part of the city, great for discovering shops and restaurants down quaint, winding streets. New Town is lively and modern, with entertainment and fun found on almost every corner.

Nightlife
Karaoke, cabaret, pubs and clubs – Benidorm has it all. Coming to life at night, this city welcomes revellers and party people of all kinds. Sip sangria at a bar on the Square or get the beers in at Jimmy’s Red Lion pub, the choice is yours.

Things To Do on Benidorm Holidays

Tapas Alley
Head down the cobbled walkways of Old Town to Tapas Alley – a whole street of restaurants that serve paella, tapas and pinchos. Delicious smells, mouth-watering sights and a true taste of Spain await you at this spot that is popular with both tourists and locals alike.

La Cruz de Benidorm
Crowning the Sierra Helada natural park, La Cruz de Benidorm is a stunning clifftop monument in the shape of a cross. Though it’s well worth the walk up for the spectacular views over the coast, if you aren’t feeling up to a hike then you can also hop into a taxi to be whizzed straight to the top.

Aqualandia
With over 20 water slides and attractions, Aqualandia is the biggest water park in the whole of Spain. Highlights include the 33-metre-high Vertigo, The Rapids and the multi-track Splash! slide, where you can race your friends or family to the bottom. Make a day of it and chill out at the lagoon pool or grab a bite to eat at the restaurants in between thrills.

Benidorm Island
The uninhabited Benidorm Island, also known as Benidorm Rock, is a striking feature of the surrounding seascape. This nature reserve is just 3.5km from the mainland, making it the perfect place to take a relaxing boat trip – you might even meet the cheeky wild peacocks that call it home.

Culture

Holidays to Benidorm don't have to be all about all-night partying though. From the Three Kings Festival in January to Yuletide nativity plays, it'll be remarkable if you don't come across a fiesta here! Come in October for the biggest one, the crazy 'Moors and Christians' Fiesta, with mock battles staged in front of a huge, makeshift castle.

For an equally fun-filled experience, don't miss out on a visit to one of Benidorm's many markets such as the town centre's Outdoor Market on Wednesdays and Sundays.
