Benidorm is the Costa Blanca's holiday capital, upfront, upbeat and up all-night. Here you'll have the choice of two beaches, Levante and Poniente, each with the reassurance of the EU's Blue Flag. The smaller Mal Pas beach is also nearby. A Benidorm holiday has myriad entertainments, from restaurants and bodegas where you can sit down to paellas and tapas, countless bars, pavement cafes, and souvenir shops. British-style amenities are also thick on the ground, with pubs and tea rooms buzzing with life. At night, choose from dozens of discotheques and nightclubs, or take in an unforgettable cabaret at the Benidorm Palace Nightclub.
You should take time out from the more hedonistic activities to explore the Old Town, home to countless tiny pubs and bars. For a gentler pace, explore the huddle of narrow streets and whitewashed houses along to the Balcon del Mar, the famous viewpoint. Take a boat trip to Peacock Island bird sanctuary, or travel inland to Guadalest. Cala de Finestrat is only 4km from Benidorm's Old Town and promises to offer relaxation. Golf nuts will delight in the huge championship course, and you can take a trip to the extraordinary Canelobre Caves nearby, or perhaps a visit to the picture-postcard town of Altea. There are the usual water sports activities too. A holiday to Benidorm really does have something for everyone, and you will have a hard time deciding what to do first. See more holidays to Spain.
