Placa del Castell, Benidorm

4.7
#3 of 19 in Historic Sites in Costa Blanca
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.

    A spectacular view to the two beaches. They tend to put a craft market in the vicinity.

    For me is the place most beautiful of Benidorm especially at night. The climb up there is inclined if you go in the center of the village or climb a lot of stairs in which is recommended, since it starts in a Cove and just a beautiful viewpoint. In summer there are jobs and painters. Arriving up the views are spectacular and you can get off the cliff and see water that divides East and West.

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.
