Benidorm has been popular among British tourists for decades because of its tenacious sunshine and hot weather, big, open beaches and the wide array of activities for families and partygoers. Local
businesses have embraced the British and the area has become even more suited to friends and families looking for low-cost, all-inclusive holidays. Signs are frequently written in English, as well as
the local Spanish, the best hotels, shops and restaurants are right beside the most popular beaches, and late-night bars and clubs offer cheap drinks and happy hours for groups looking to dance the
As with most popular sunshine destinations, the beaches are full of activities for children and adventurous tourists to enjoy, including diving, paddle boarding, water skiing, etc. However, families wanting to take a break from the sand have a whole host of nearby theme parks and water parks to enjoy, including the rollercoasters of Terra Mítica and the water slides of Aqualandia. There are also a number of full golf courses for parents and adults who want some relaxing quiet time on the green.
Meanwhile, those preferring nature can hike through the Sierra Helada (Serra Gelada) National Park for some stunning scenery and natural vistas away from the hustle and bustle focused around the
beaches. Those preferring to learn about the history of the region can explore Benidorm’s Old Town, although the nearby town of Altea is far more picturesque and less affected by the tourism. Also,
Benidorm is on mainland Spain in the department of Valencia, so holidaymakers can drive or take public transport to nearby towns and cities if they want a more authentic Spanish experience. Primarily, Benidorm attracts British tourists to its lively nightlife. You don’t have to travel far from any hotel to find numerous bars and pubs offering deals of food and drink, although the biggest
clubs are along Avenida Communitat Valencia.
Benidorm’s consistent warm weather and spacious beaches have seen it transform into a mainstay holiday destination for British tourists. The sun is at its hottest in August, although it is still comfortably between 25˚C and 30˚C on average, while it rarely drops below 12˚C in the winter. The surrounding mountains hold most of the clouds back, while a persistent sea breeze keeps skin temperature comfortable. However, while holidaymakers can grab bargains by travelling out of the summer tourist season, rainfall is significantly higher in the non-summer months.
Benidorm is a popular European holiday destination not only for its party atmosphere and good weather, but prices are relatively low. A mid-range meal for two will average €30, although you can find cheap, single-course meals for one for as little as €5. Drinks are also cheaper than the rest of Spain: beer ranges from €1.20 to €3 (although happy hours at bars are common); a coffee is about €1.50, and a bottle of water is about €1.
