So, let’s start with the most important part for many….
Benidorm’s Fabulous Beaches
Benidorm is on the Costa Blanca, or White Coast, and this gives us a clue as to the nature of its beaches and coast line. you will be hard pressed to find longer, wider stretches of almost white, fine sand beaches anywhere else in Europe.
One of the main beaches in Benidorm, Levante Beach, has been rated as one of the best in Europe. Also known as ‘Sunrise Beach’ the sand stretches for 2 kilometres and the waters are shallow and considered safe for bathing. There is an exciting buzz to Levante Beach and always lots going on.
To the West of Benidorm Centre lies the quieter, but no less impressive, Poniente Beach. Another wide expanse of near perfect sand and shallow waters, the beach contrasts nicely with the hussle and bussle of Levante, with a more serene character. Backed by palm trees and beach side restaurants, there are no shortage of facilities, and as with everything Benidorm it is well looked after.
