The Spanish town of Benidorm is experiencing something of a renaissance these days. Occupying a central location along Spain’s Costa Blanca, with endless beaches, glittering Mediterranean views, and a warm, sunny climate all year, it’s no wonder travelers have been flocking here since the 1960s. At the city’s northern end you’ll find Rincón de Loix, home to Levante Beach and an ample supply of bars, restaurants, and nightlife options, not to mention the Aqualandia water park. The southern side hosts the quieter La Cala neighborhood, with its family-friendly vibes and access to Poniente Beach. Start the day with a stroll down the beachfront promenade, followed by a sunset catamaran cruise and dancing until dawn. If the nightlife scene is not your thing, you can always take refuge by the swimming pool at your vacation rental home.
Benidorm has no airport, so if you’re arriving by air, you’ll have to fly into Alicante-Elche Airport (ALC), and take a bus to the center of town. The 35-mile journey takes about 50 minutes. You can also check routes through Valencia Airport (VLC) and Murcia-San Javier Airport (MJV), each about 90 minutes away. If you’re traveling within Europe, you may opt to take a train to Alicante and transfer to the Benidorm tram or local train lines. Once you arrive in town, you don’t really need a car unless you want to explore off the beaten path; plus, parking can be scarce and expensive.
Benidorm can be crowded with tourists and hot in the summer, making it a better bet during shoulder season (spring and fall). Summers can be muggy, with high temperatures in the mid-80s Fahrenheit, and in the winter, temperatures drop into the low 40s at night, so you’ll want to pack plenty of layers. The water is comparatively warm year round, and on a hot September day sea temperatures can crest over 80 degrees. The water is coldest around March, when it hits the mid-50s.
Located on a hill between the Levante and Poniente beaches, the Casco Antiguo (Old Town) used to be the center of the action when Benidorm was just a fishing village. Today you can wander the narrow pedestrian streets, admire the blue domes of the Iglesia de San Jaime, and discover a new favorite tapas bar tucked away down a hidden alley.
Every part of Spain is renowned for its regional delicacies; in Benidorm, try the bollo de San Blas (a traditional almond cake) and, of course, paella. Sample the local fare in tapas bars or learn to make them yourself with a cooking class.
You can take a glass-bottomed boat trip a couple of miles offshore to reach this island nature preserve, which was once home to a population of wild peacocks. On the island you’ll find nature trails, a cafe and nice views of Benidorm and Alicante, while the coastal waters teem with life, making it a great option for scuba divers, too.
