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.

Just so you know, the majority of our properties in the vibrant and sun-soaked resort of Benidorm don't accept group bookings or bookings for celebrations such as stag and hen parties. This is in order to maintain a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere for all guests. Please take this into account while planning your holiday, and check with the specific hotel beforehand to avoid any last-minute surprises or disappointment.

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.
From June to August it's hot in Benidorm. You'll find these the most popular months. July temperatures typically reach 32ºC, which is good for the beach, but you can also swim here well into October and November. In the autumn, the sun will still shine and you'll find the beaches much quieter. You can also join in with town festivities like the Moors and Christians Fiesta. This dates back to the 16th century and features mock battles on land and sea. Spring is also mild and a good choice if you like hiking in the mountains.
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.
Aside from the main beaches of Levante, Poniente and Mal Pas, you can visit the Cala Finestrat beach at the far end of Poniente. You'll find a small cove where the locals go, with perfect swimming, a good choice of beach bars and restaurants and night buses to take you home. At the other end of town, you can reach the protected coves of Ti Ximo and Almadraba at the far end of Levante. You'll have a steep walk and you’ll need to bring your own food, drinks and sun lounger, but it's a secluded and beautiful spot.
Yes, definitely. You'll find many hotels and restaurants are geared up for families and there are lots of attractions to keep children occupied. The beaches are long, sandy and clean with shallow water that's good for kids. You'll find play areas and swings on them and simple sports like volleyball or kayaking. You can also visit attractions such as the Aqualandia water park to play on the water slides, or take a boat trip to Benidorm Island. Even small children will enjoy the Terra Mitica theme park, which has miniature roller coasters and swing chairs.
This was once a fishing village, so you'll find plenty of historic buildings around Benidorm. There's the 18th-century church of San Jaime and Santa Ana on Canfali hill, dedicated to the town's patron saints. Legend says a wooden statue of the Virgin, found inside, was washed to the village on a drifting boat. You can see parts of the original Benidorm in the old town, with its winding streets and a square dedicated to lost sailors. You can visit several historic observation points where people looked out for invaders, including the 16th-century Morales watchtower and the Balcon del Mediterraneo, a 14th-century fortress.
Benidorm is renowned for the variety of its nightlife, from cafe bars and cocktail lounges to rock bars and disco. You'll see at least 160 disco-pubs in the city, spread around the old town and in the Rincon de Loix area. To these, you can add the modern nightclubs along the Levante beach promenade and the big discotheques on the outskirts of town towards Altea. You'll also come across an area called the English Zone where you'll find pubs serving British cider and beer, live music and jukeboxes, to celebrate the long warm nights until the small hours.
You can drive to Alicante in 35 minutes. You might also take a bus, which will take you anything from 30 to 75 minutes, depending on traffic and route. There are 80 buses a day and it's very cheap. They run till quite late in the evening. Perhaps the best way to travel is on the new tram track, which runs along the coast and has splendid views. There are two trams an hour and that take 75 minutes, terminating right in the shopping heart of Alicante.
