Placa del Castell, Benidorm

Perched high above Benidorm and its beaches, the blue and white tiled Placa del Castell offers sweeping views of the high-rise buildings and bays below. Have a sangria under the Moroccan blue spires and canopies before heading down the white steps to a balcony over the sea. If you're lucky, you may catch a traditional Spanish wedding taking place on the plaza. Musicians often frequent the area, providing accompaniment to the refreshing sea breezes and placid vistas.

  • This is an uncovered courtyard within the balcony area. Blue tile on white. Romantic. Lovely. Quiet. Scenic. Incredible views.
  • Great view. And that little climb down the edge.
  • Had to wait what felt like 30 minutes for a beer and 2 coffees. The wait for the waiter to appear after we had called him and he had responded was equally bad. What's more, there are a couple of guys playing really bad pan-flute re-adaptations of already bad songs on a stand right next by. A small plus is that it was very nice when they finally stopped playing.
  • As well as the balcon is a "must have". You can't not go there. Nice but a bit crowded. Unique sunset.

  • Amazing views and a good breath of fresh air. Beautiful place to see. Go early in the morning, it's enjoy the calm, it's really soothing to contemplate when everyone is still asleep or goes to sleep. Truly magical.

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.
