The Benidorm area guide

Sights and attractions

Towering skyscrapers, crystalline Blue Flag beaches, secluded coves and an atmosphere like no other, Benidorm is an alluring destination for many. The celebrated resort in the Alicante province of Spain on the gorgeous Costa Blanca coastline is a firm favourite with British sun-seekers and retirees, so much so that British-run restaurants, cafes and pubs now form part of the intriguing cityscape.

But Benidorm's popularity was not always so. The town was once deemed a party resort infamous for drunken louts causing a nuisance. Thankfully, it is now a favourable place for many to settle down and start afresh – thanks to resorts such as Ibiza and Malia attracting the most hardcore revellers.

Many are now lured to the town by the promise of sun, sea and sand and the two most popular beaches, Playa Levante and Playa Poniente, though rammed during the summer, provide the much-needed relaxation many seek. For night owls, the dazzling cabaret shows – for which Benidorm is famed – provide hours of entertainment, as do the leisure and theme parks dotted throughout the town.

If you seek a destination with a culture that isn't too dissimilar to the one found in the UK, plus one that offers the perfect combination of relaxation and world-class entertainment, Benidorm ticks all the right boxes.

Restaurants and cafes

Benidorm is a melting pot of different cultures and, thus, cuisines from around the world can be found in abundance. Here, all tastes, all flavours and all types of delicacies can be savoured. With over 1,000 venues serving delicious meals and refreshing tipples, the only struggle you'll have is picking the venue for the night.

If you miss home comforts, stroll through the narrow, winding streets of the Old Town until you stumble upon a multitude of upmarket British restaurants serving traditional English classics to hungry patrons. La Calle Mallorca and Lepanto are two areas where further British restaurants, cafes and bars can be found.

To savour more traditional delicacies, Spanish tapas bars must be frequented. These delightful eateries serve a wide array of tasty appetisers, perfect for sampling the area’s mouth-watering cuisine in one go. El Rincon de Ruzafa is one such place and often leads to repeat visits. You'll also find fine dining options along the picturesque promenade, Villa Venecia, for one, has stunning views of the coast and exquisite meals cooked by seasoned chefs.

Shops

Benidorm is somewhat of a haven for shoppers. A collection of the world's top fashion houses, artisan stores and bazaars can be found in the beautiful Levante and Rincon de Loix district. Keeping up with style-statements will, therefore, never be too difficult.

For a more immersive cultural experience, one should pay a visit to the Old Town. As you traipse down the historic streets full of character, you'll be greeted by a number of stores specialising in leather works and other handicrafts. Markets such as El Pueblo, selling an assortment of odd wares and trinkets, provide another way in which unique treasures can be found. You should also make every effort to visit the indoor market in Rincon de Loix. Here, a smorgasbord of stalls – mostly run by British vendors – sell all manner of goods.

Just outside of Benidorm sits La Marina, a shopping centre, split over three levels with over 100 retail stores, eating quarters and a 9-screen cinema. There are also numerous supermarkets like Mercadona, Carrefour and Masymas which sell local and British produce.

Travel

As Benidorm welcomes millions of sun-seekers year round, the travel infrastructure is more than reliable, timely and convenient. Many arrive into Benidorm via Alicante Airport – situated around 38 miles away. Passengers then either get a taxi or a private transfer to the holiday resort of Benidorm, which takes around 45 minutes to get to but offers gorgeous seascapes en route.

Once in the illustrious town, there are a majority of ways in which you could explore the stunning surroundings. The bus, taxi or for the more athletic bunch – cycling or walking – conveniently get you from A to B in a matter of moments.
