Bright times in Benidorm

Benidorm has a great climate – very sunny in the summer and still warm in the winter. The weather matches the vibrant feel of the town. Make the most of it at Levante and Poniente, the two biggest Blue Flag beaches.

Join the fun

Benidorm’s Terra Mitica is a top theme park based on the ancient world. You’ll also love the Terra Natura animal park, where you can see tigers, elephants and rhinos up close. You can even cool off at the Aqua Natura waterpark at the same time.

A cosmopolitan city

Alicante itself is an atmospheric city well worth exploring, even if you’ve just booked flights to Benidorm. We’re talking cobbled streets filled with lantern-lit tapas bars and a lively after-dark scene by the marina. Make sure you tick off the Museum of Fine Arts and Santa Barbara Castle.
