  • Levante Beach

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Levante is the most "in" of the beaches, and where everything happens. If you don't mind sharing a square meter of sand with five people, dispute the narrow corridors (if some) between the chairs to reach the water, and sleep... when possible, then you'll be happy in Benidorm. Tedium is the only forbidden thing in place

Benidorm Warnings and Dangers

  • Crowds

    I had in Benidorm an exclusive sensation: trying to reach the sea, I couldn't find how. The reclining chairs were to tight that it really worked as a wall. I had to walk to a rocky area in the northern tip of Levante beach to find a passage, walking back in the water to the desired bathing area, with the wall of chairs allowing the occupants to...

  • Foso del terror 6

    This is a special expierience. The authentic pit of the terror in the Castle Conde de Alfaz. Its not really dangourous, but its made very well and the actors are great. You feel like beeing in a horror movie. It opens at midnight and that makes it even more scary.

  • Spanish use two pin plugs!

    A fold up bag is useful to bring presents back. If going out of season consider taking a small umbrella. They are expensive to buy in Spain. If you bring your alarm clock radio with you as I do, and it runs off the mains, don't forget to bring your converter plugs with you as Spanish plug sockets are TWO PIN ROUND !Voltage is the same as in...

    A few kilometers west of central Benidorm, this beautiful beach offers the same quality of water, in a more calm ambiance. And, of course, the animation of Benidorm is only minutes away. In my first time in Benidorm, I choose a hotel in Altea, where we could really sleep. In my second time I stayed in the high part of Benidorm, distant from the...

  • East-coast of Spain

    Because Benidorm is located at the East-coast of Spain you can join the beautiful sunrises overthere. Just a few hotels in the little harbour, centre of Bendirom, do have the exact sight to the East, so you just have to look out of your window to enjoy the Benidorm sunrise ... Also some other spots along the coast can witness to this phenomenon...
