Benidorm

A major seaside resort on the famous Costa Blanca, Benidorm was built compactly, thanks to the foresight of a local government administrator in the 1960s, who had a vision for a holiday destination that would grow upwards.
Take a break from the city and head to Playa de Levante and Peñón de Ifac Natural Park. We've included these beaches for you: Poniente Beach and Playa de Levante o la Fossa. When in Benidorm, make a side trip to see Punta Negra in Denia, approximately Denia away. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Placa del Castell and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia Ortodoxa Rusa San Miguel Arcangel.

To see where to stay, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Benidorm holiday planning website.

With over 200 km (124 mi) of sandy beaches and tranquil waters, Costa Blanca is one of Europe’s most popular vacation destinations. The modern seaside resorts of this sun-warmed coastline draw over 6 million visitors each year. But while Costa Blanca’s beaches dip right into the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea, deeper inland, verdant valleys and charming villages buzz with traditional Spanish cultural attractions. The entire region is blessed with stunning natural wonders, which include hidden coves, underwater caves, and dense forests. Its grand mountain ranges provide a vivid backdrop for ancient villages, offering plenty of authentic color to be explored.
