The Benidorm area guide

Things to do

Benidorm, arguably, one of the biggest and most popular holiday resorts in Europe lies within the Alicante province of Spain, sitting along the sun-drenched Costa Blanca coastline. The beloved seaside haunt was not always so. It was, in fact, a petite fishing village up until the 1960s, when sadly the industry began to slowly decline. The quick thinking council decided to market the town as a holiday destination and lo and behold, Benidorm grew into the glittering tourist hotspot it is today.

Upon arriving in this illustrious town, you'll be bombarded with a multitude of skyscrapers, beaches of the prestigious Blue Flag status – the two most famed of which are Playa Levante and Playa Poniente – numerous clubs, tapas bars and a historic centre. Though Benidorm received bad press in the 1980s for being a notorious party haven, it has since cleaned up its act considerably and is now a sought-after retreat for the elderly.

If you, like many others, decide to uproot your life to Benidorm, endless possibilities await. Whether you wish to take a short trip to Benidorm Island to marvel at the peacock population, want to stroll back in time at the historic old town or enjoy a dazzling cabaret show – it’s all possible here.

Places to eat

As one would expect from a world-class resort, thousands of eateries have sprung up over the years to serve sun-seeking holidaymakers as well as locals. Though Benidorm resides in Spain, the cuisine found here is as diverse as the food scene found in London. From Brazilian to South African and traditional English pub classics, all manner of palates and budgets are catered for in Benidorm.

As Benidorm attracts a wave of British sun-seekers year on year, British restaurants, cafes and bars are scattered throughout the town, but the largest concentration can be found in La Calle Mallorca and Rincon de Loix. One notable venue for anyone pining over a hearty Sunday roast is St James Tavern. If you're missing this delicious English classic, a visit here should not be missed. If, however, you wish to take your taste buds on a more experimental, international route, you'll find a plethora of ethnic restaurants as well as classic tapas bars such as El Rincon de Ruzafa at every turn.

Shopping

Like any other leading resort in the world, the shopping district in Benidorm is awash with top fashion houses, independent boutiques, artisan stores and markets to explore in a stunning Mediterranean setting.

Stroll along the promenade and you'll be greeted by stores selling unique souvenirs to quirky independent boutiques selling artisan items as well as clothing. The winding back streets of the Old Town are home to a number of specialist stores, in particular, ones selling high-quality leather goods and handicrafts – especially on Passeig de la Carretera. Whereas, the lively Levante area of Benidorm is where you can find a plethora of the world's most famed designer stores.

Markets and Bazaars provide another avenue in which bargains can be sought and treasures can be bought. Foietes market (sells locally sourced produce and odd wares), El Pueblo (a general handicraft market) and El Cisne (a flea market) are three markets held on a regular basis that any who live or visit here should frequent.

Getting there & around

The easiest and simplest way to get into Benidorm is via air. Alicante Airport is situated a mere 60 km away. From London Gatwick, you can arrive into Alicante in just 2 and a half hours. Once at the airport, you can catch a direct bus, a private transfer or a taxi to Benidorm.

As the famed town sees an influx of travellers each summer, there is no shortage of travel options available within the resort. Whether you decide to take a bus, a taxi, cycle, walk or even drive, you'll be able to get around the town hassle-free and enjoy beautiful vistas along the way.
