  • 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

    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.
