Benidorm holidays have long been a staple in the British calendar. Attracting millions of visitors each and every year, the beaches, attractions and nightlife make the Costa Blanca resort one of the best destinations for families, couples and groups. A sweeping coastline with modern facilities and vibrant entertainment, it has a diverse appeal that brings mass tourism from people of all ages. Once a tranquil, fishing village, the climate and amenities of the Spanish south coast mean that it is now a year-round tourist resort. But, there are still remnants of the past and amongst the long strips of sand and fun-filled nights sits a cobbled old town with an authentic Baroque church. A multicultural resort, most people spend the day on the Blue Flag beaches, splashing around and enjoying water sports. For the adventurous there is the Terra Mitica amusement park and the water park of Aqualandia but the biggest buzz comes from the sky-rise promenades and the trio of beaches. As the sun goes down and the lights go on, party time begins. From tapas to tribute bands the nightlife is lively to say the least and comes with big-name DJs and dedicated nightclubs. Levante is the most popular part of Benidorm so head to Poniente for smaller crowds and, if you fancy a daytrip, then Alicante is a beautiful location at the end of a 40-minute mountainside drive. Elsewhere, Calpe is also a picturesque resort and Denia is good for a different evening setting. Holidays to Benidorm are most popular during the summer months of June through September when the average high temperatures are in the late 20s. Surrounded by mountains, there is a microclimate of sorts at play and even in the winter months you will get highs of 15ºC to 20 degrees. May and October are probably the best times to go for cheap holidays abroad to Benidorm
Being such a popular destination for European tourists, Benidorm holidays come with a vast array of attractions. Couples and families alike will enjoy the numerous options available with a holiday here in 2019/2020.
The long stretches of award-winning beaches, combined with the promise of sunshine and warm temperatures, are what attracts most holidaymakers to Benidorm and they are a great place to unwind. Whilst here you can leave the glistening sands to try some water sports with jet-skiing, windsurfing and pedalos commonplace here. If you don’t want to spend every day at the beach then the Aqualandia Water Park in Javea is fun for all the family with rides and slides while the Terra Natura Park is a kids paradise, where they can spot animals and partake in zip-lining.
When the evening comes there are so many options for you to enjoy. From clowns to drag queens, tribute bands to comedians, cabaret to Irish pubs the resort comes alive with an interesting mix. The most popular areas are the Top Road and The Square. It is complete exuberance and you get to choose whether you want to sip a drink at a beach bar or find a nightclub on the main strip and dance until dawn.
While it is known for mass tourism, holidays to Benidorm do also come with a traditional feel to them. Enjoy authentic Spanish culture as you meander through the cobbled streets and visit the domed church in the centre. The old town is perfect for finding gift shops and boutiques while Passeig de la Carretera and Gambo Street are both great for shopping. If you want to explore the region then the sleepy fishing town of Moraira and picturesque Calpe are both great options.
