There’s a reason why five million tourists arrive every year to spend their holidays in Benidorm. What was once a small fishing village until the 1960’s, Benidorm has now risen to become one of the world largest and most vibrant resorts, here’s why...
1. Sun sun and more sun!
Well never say never, but Benidorm benefits from an average of 330 days of sunshine every year so you’re almost guaranteed very warm weather. Winter temperatures also fluctuate between 8°C and 20°C so there’s no wonder why many tourists stay out of season too.
2. It’s great value for money.
Benidorm was one of Europe’s first low cost resorts and continues to be so to this day. With affordable package deals, budget airlines flying into Alicante airport and prices for food and drink lower than home you can enjoy a week in the sun without breaking the bank. You can also find a pint of local lager for a euro in many bars!
3. Let Benidorm entertain you.
With a variety of adult entertainment offers, there’s never a dull moment in Benidorm. There’s cabarets, singers, comedians and tribute acts including soul groups, Elvis and the Beatles. Most venues are free to get in and the standard is great.
4. Party all night long in the resort that never sleeps.
For holidaymakers who love to party, Benidorm’s nightlife scene is crazy, fun and never ends. From restaurants to bars to clubs to after parties, there’s always drinks on offer, music to dance to and friends to be made.
5. Benidorm is a fantastic family holiday resort.
The beaches are ideal for families in Benidorm and even have playgrounds and parks along the front for children to play in. Head to the Old Town for family restaurants which are filled with local Spanish families and enjoy children’s entertainment in the many family friendly hotels.
6. Visit amusement parks, theme park and water parks.
Boasting some spectacular entertainment parks, Benidorm caters for all ages and is one of the most exciting resorts in Europe. Spend a day on the white knuckle rides in Terra Mitica, soaring down the slides in Aqualandia or visiting the animal kingdom of Terra Natura.
7. Set sail and explore the Spanish coastlines.
Boats leave daily from the port of Benidorm and from here you can cruise to Peacock Island, Tabarca and Alicante. Our favourite boat trip to Calpe gives the experience of an ancient fishing village and opportunities to try local fish restaurants.
8. Enjoy some peace and quiet
Benidorm isn’t all about high rise hotels and family resorts. If you’re looking for even more relaxation, then private villas set a short drive away from the main areas could be ideal. Panoramic sea views, your own pool and spacious gardens are all possible within the Benidorm district.
