Balcon del Mediterraneo, Benidorm

4.6
#3 of 6 in Sightseeing in Benidorm
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Benidorm

Thanks to the city's compact layout, visitors often find that nothing is too far on foot while vacationing in Benidorm. The city is made up of three main areas: Parte Vieja, Levante, and Centro. Parte Vieja includes the historical old quarter. The beachfront area, Levante offers numerous options for lodging close to trendy restaurants and the buzzing nightlife. Although a bit pricier than inland accommodations, these hotels give you doorstep access to, and splendid views of, the city's famous beaches. A ten-minute walk inland in the Centro district, accommodations tend to be more affordable while still providing easy access to shops, restaurants, and tourist sites.
