Balcon del Mediterraneo

There is a large rock called the Cerro Canfali Rock between the Levante Beach and the Poniente Beach, and on top of the rock is the Balcon del Mediterraneo, a lookout point, also known as the Castillo-Mirador de Benidorm. It has marvelous views of both beaches. In the past, there was a castle on top of this rock to defend against the Arab pirate incursions during the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. The Balcon has a balustrade of white stone and there are many benches where one can linger to enjoy the views.
