I have been to Benidorm several times now, with my hubby and also with Parents. At some point we always have a walk up to the balcony. Whether you are staying on the new town Levante side of Benidorm or the quieter Poinente side, it is easy accessible. You can walk up the many steps at the side of the... More

This place is situated in an area with great footfall. I stopped for a coffee and orange juice and compared to other local cafes it was the most expensive. I wouldnt let this put you off because of the situ it probably has high rent and has to charge the prices.

Nice end to our walk along the prom. Stunning view, would love to return at night but a Sunday walk gave us a chance to mingle with the locals.

If your fit & healthy why... More

We visit near enough every time we come to Benidorm, starting at the church and making our way round to the headland. We were lucky enough to be up here on Boxing day and it was a beautiful, warm day. We sat in the bar and had a couple of drinks while listening to the panpipes. A lovely atmosphere and... More

Away from the hustle and bustle of the main town. A beautiful setting overlooking the sea listening to the Spanish musicians. Perfect for an afternoon walk and very romantic.
