Benidorm

3.8
Nightlife · Beaches · Water Parks
A major seaside resort on the famous Costa Blanca, Benidorm was built compactly, thanks to the foresight of a local government administrator in the 1960s, who had a vision for a holiday destination that would grow upwards. Today, the town is famous for its tall hotels and apartment blocks, many of which are over 25 floors high. Benidorm’s wide tree-lined avenues give a feeling of space. Its award-winning beaches are ideal vacation destinations year-round due to the region’s mild climate--the temperature rarely falls below 18 C (64 F). Benidorm may be a hotbed of mass tourism, but it also possesses that distinctive Mediterranean character, worth exploring any time of year. Plan your holiday in Benidorm and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Spain trip planner.

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.
