Holidays in
Benidorm

A buzzy Costa Blanca break

Famed for lively nightlife and swathes of golden sand, Benidorm holidays are the Costa Blanca’s star attraction for night owls and sun seekers alike. While days are reserved for flip-flopping between a lounger and the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean, evenings are lit up by glittering cabaret shows, playful karaoke bars and packed discos, which attract a roster of world-class DJs. It’s worth remembering that there’s plenty to see beyond the shimmering strip of high-rise buildings that hugs Benidorm’s coastline.

Nestled between two illustrious beaches, you’ll find the Old Town, which retains the characterful charm of its fishing-village origins. A mooch around these whitewashed streets makes for a welcome pitstop after exploring Benidorm’s more thrilling attractions, which include a waterpark, theme park and zoo. Whether you’re here to live it up with friends, enjoy some downtime with family or simply work on your tan in peace, holidays to Benidorm have got you covered.

Your Benidorm questions, answered

Keen to experience Benidorm at its liveliest? Aim for November, when this seaside resort pulsates with six nights of dazzling firework displays, live bands and colourful parades.

Plenty – Wednesdays are good for souvenirs, as you can choose between second-hand gems at the flea market and a range of goods at the largest of the lot, the Pueblo Market.

There are loads of international menus, catering to the tastes of British and German visitors in particular, but you’ll also find traditional Spanish rice dishes and, of course, platefuls of fresh seafood.

Play on the beach

With palm-lined promenades, children’s play parks and water sports aplenty, you’re guaranteed fun in the sun – you just need to choose which stretch of sand to plant your parasol on.
