Create an itinerary including Balcon del Mediterraneo
Balcon del Mediterraneo, also known as the Benidorm overlook, divides two beaches and offers a great view over the sea. Only a few meters from the rock, a geyser shoots a jet of water up into the sky. Imagine the castle of centuries past, which sat atop this rock defending against Arab pirate attacks for 300 years. Take a seat on one of the many benches and appreciate the sights. Not far from the shore lies an uninhabited island you can admire from the overlook. Our Benidorm trip maker tool makes visiting Balcon del Mediterraneo and other Benidorm attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Lovely to come and stay and look at the view around you. You can take lots of photos of the views and of yourself.

  • Benidorm always seems to be associated with rowdy nightlife. There are some great aspects to the town. This is one of them. Not only taking a step back in history it is a relaxing place to visit. With superb views and a good choice of places to eat and drink. An early evening visit is worth the while. A good place to lose yourself.
  • It has a phenomenal location, once you are in it you will be able to see beaches of Benidorm. Climbing up is not that difficult and you can even find bars and places to rest. Very recommendable to visit this wonderful place " the balcony". Let the photos speak for themselves, it's wonderful. Try it yourself.
  • What a lovely historical place. Absolutely beautiful architecture and fabulous views overlooking Benidorm and Levante beach. Warning to those in wheelchairs or with wheelchair users. You will have very steep streets to contend with to get up there. I suggest you hire an electric mobility scooter or electric wheelchair to save your shoulders and back.
  • Fantastic place to get great views of benidorm and surrounding area , sea view is stunning. Has a few nice places to sit and chill to watch the sun to go down. Great place to take holiday pictures and photo opportunities
  • Always visit this place when visiting Benidorm. This area has been fully renovated where you can sit or enjoy the stunning views of Benidorm 's beaches and skyline. Situated close to the Old Town of Benidorm this a tranquil space to spend a few minutes or longer. There are restaurants and bars near to refresh you after the walk to the Balcon.
