Visit Benidorm and discover its most emblematic places
Benidorm was originally a small fishing village until the 60s, where it became the preferred holiday destination both nationally and European. One of the great attractions of the city is its good climate throughout the year and its wide and clean beaches, something that allows you to visit them outside the summer season and enjoy their main points of interest with more tranquility than in the summer months when they are busier.
Endless beaches, a beautiful old town, amusement parks, nature, adventure sports, fun at all hours, Benidorm is the perfect place for a family holiday.
1. Benidorm Old Town
It is a must visit. Located between the beaches of Poniente and Levante, in Punta Canfali, it treasures the most interesting architectural jewels such as, for example, the church of San Jaime and Santa Ana, which stands out for its bluish dome and the classic ornamentation that shows its façade.
A few steps away, there is one of the busiest points for tourists: the Balcony of the Mediterranean, which occupies the remains of the old castle that protected the city. From its railing you can contemplate a 360º panoramic view of the surroundings or, what is the same, the coasts of Levante and Poniente, the skyscrapers, the mountain of Puig Campana or the island of Benidorm. Although the best way to enter this historic corner of the city is to wander aimlessly through its narrow streets and have a pincho in one of its large bars.
2. Its wide beaches: Levante and Poniente
If it is famous for something, the city of skyscrapers is for its extensive beaches with calm waters and fine sand. The two largest beaches are Poniente, with more than 3 km in length, and Levante, which has approximately 2 and a half km.These two golden beaches are separated by the historic center and the Balcony of the Mediterranean.
Between both coasts is the small and beautiful Cala de Mal Pas and somewhat further away, at the northern end, are Cala del Tío Ximo and Cala Almadrava.
3. Treat yourself at our flea markets!
In Benidorm you can visit its typical markets on Wednesdays and Sundays, as well as visit the stalls of its well-known flea market on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
One of the most famous is the Rincon de Loix market, located on the esplanade next to the Hotel Pueblo and open on Wednesdays and Sundays, it is perfect to buy quality clothes and fresh products, as well as having a stall of appetizing churros.
Another market that operates all year round is Foietes. It stands out for the fruit and vegetable stalls.
Last but not least, the Benidorm flea market is open on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It is one of the busiest markets in Benidorm. The Rastro El Cisne is divided into two areas, the antiques area and the restaurant area, once your shopping is finished you can have a soft drink or barley juice and best of all you have it right next to our campsite.
And if you visit the city in summer you can visit the picturesque market Les Nits del Castell, located in Benidorm Castle and full of craft and painting stalls.
4. Have fun with our theme parks
Another of the perfect places to spend a fun day with your family are the theme parks of Benidorm.
Those hot days in the middle of August, the only thing you want is to soak all day and what better than Aqualandia, one of the largest parks in Europe with fast slides and pools suitable for the whole family.

5. Benidorm Island
Obligatory stop if you come in the hottest months of the year, this island is also known as the Island of Journalists. It is located just 4 km from the city. The departures to the reef are made from the port in beautiful boats called swallows. The journey takes about 15 min.
Once there, you can tour the island through its narrow paths full of cacti and discover its secrets. The island has a nice restaurant where you can taste the delicious Valencian paella or its exquisite seafood rice.
As you have already seen, Benidorm is a city that does not go out of style, because it reinvents itself every day. Therefore, it is one of the busiest destinations on the Costa Blanca which, of course, is much more than all the clichés and preconceived travel ideas.
