Benidorm is the most well known tourist destination in the Costa Blanca with a huge number of hotels, apartments, restaurants, bars and, of course, a great climate and clean beaches. Enjoying the beaches is one of the most popular things to do in Benidorm. Levante beach is the busiest, stretching from the Old Town to the Rincón de Loix. In the other direction from the Old Town lies Poniente beach, which arks round to the neighbouring cove of Finestrat and tends to be more quiet. Then, between these two larger beaches and close to the Old Town is a small cove where you can find Mal Pas beach, which can be accessed from the port or via steps down from the castle.
Walking around the historic centre is a great way to pass the cooler parts of the day, it is situated around Canfali Point, where you can see the emblematic image of Benidorm with its white stone balustrade and wonderful look-out over the Mediterranean Sea. In this area you'll also find the neoclassical church dedicated to St. James the Apostle and can explore the narrow streets between the Plaza del Castillo and the commercial centre around the Plaza Triangular.
Aside from exploring the Old Town and enjoying Benidorm's beaches, there is a huge selection of nightlife to enjoy and you can also find theme parks such as Terra Mítica, Mundomar, Aqualandia and Terra Natura all close by.
And don't miss the chance of boat trip, one of the most relaxing things to do in Benidorm and a great way to see the coast from another perspective. We recommend a trip leaving from the neighbouring town of Altea which takes you along some of the most beautiful coast in the Costa Blanca. The meeting point is just a 20 minute drive or taxi ride from the centre of Benidorm or we can organise private buses for groups.
