Benidorm Guide: Things To Do
As one of Europe's largest and most popular holiday resorts one might expect there is more to Benidorm than the 4S's .. Sun, Sand, Sea and Sangria.
Some say there are 5S's, the fifth being the 'XXX factor' which swings it.. and I am not talking about Sunblock but that Secret Special Something that will bring you back to Benidorm time and time again.
Hyperbole aside, there is one clear reason for Benidorm's enduring popularity with holidaymakers which is simply that it is entertaining. There is always lots to do and fun to be had.
If you become restless lying on the beautiful Playa de Levante (Levante Beach) why not take a walk along the promenade with its many restaurants, cafes and bars.
Or choose from a wide variety of watersports, including water skiing, diving, para-sailing and more.
On the other side of Benidorms headland lies the Playa de Poniente (Poniente+Beach) which tends to be quieter.
Benidorm has several Theme Parks which make a great family day out.
Benidorms Old Quarter, also known as the Old Town is situated aside the promontory that separates the two Benidorm beaches. You will find that the Old Town has retained much of its traditional culture and charm, a great place to get a taste of authentic Spain. Stroll arround the narrow streets to find souvenirs or refresh yourself in a tapas bar.
Boat excursions to Benidorm Isle, located out in the centre of the Benodorm bay, leave from the Benidorm harbour. According to legend, the islet of Benidorm is the resting place of the gigantic block of rock that is missing from the summit of nearby Mount Puig Campana.
Perhaps more leisuredly is the golf. In Benidorm there are two great golf courses The Villaitana Levante (72 par) and Poniente (62 par) courses). The Benidorm golf courses offer great quality and beauty with wide clear greens and lets the golf lovers enjoy playing golf in Benidorm with a view of the unmistakeable skyline of Benidorm along the Mediterranean horizon.
