The view from Placa del castell is wonderful as you can see the benidorm strip, the mountains in behind as well as Peacock island. When I was here there was also a lovely atmosphere as a couple of men were playing panpipes. A great place to have a glass of sangria (even if it is a bit more expensive on account of the location)

While I am not crazy about Benidorm, I love the Placa del Castell because of its location; there are stunning views so is the ideal place to take pictures; there are places to sit and watch the world go by & enjoy the atmosphere to the sound of one of the musicians playing lovely background music.
Walking through the old town from Levante beach, after stopping at Placa del Castell, walk down the steep stairway. Tucked in the corner you'll see a small beach called "Malpas Beach". This little beach is often not mentioned in brochures - most visitors go to Levante or Poniente. I prefer swimming at Malpas beach to cool off in the heat of the day and notice that its particularly popular with local Spanish pensioners in the mornings, and with couples. There were 2 lifeguards on duty, sand was clear, sea crystal clear.

Quite clearly one of the best bits of Benidorm as it is in the old town and very Spanish.
The views are amazng and there is something quite tranquil about it. there are a load of steps to get to the top, but if you can manage it I def recommend as its the best free trip you will ever do.
There are cafes up there that do a range of snacks and drinks, its lovely to sit up there and watch the world go by.

Easily the best part of Benidorm and a welcome escape from the high rises and general craziness of the new part! It is quite a hike to get to either up steps or a steep road but the views are terrific and we whiled away many an hour in the cafe people watching!
