Why go to Benidorm

Benidorm certainly lives up to its reputation as one of Spain’s top party destinations. Renowned for legendary nightlife, pumping beachside clubs and international pubs, a night out in Benidorm only ends when you want it to.

The beachfront is the best place to head for your night of nights. From sunset to sunrise, the taps are flowing, and the dance floors are pulsing. Nurse your hangover with all your home comforts: this may be Spain, but expect to find cafes serving up everything from English breakfasts to fish ‘n’ chips. Then, recover in the sunshine at one of its main beaches – this legendary resort on Costa Blanca sits right in the centre of two sweeping sandy stretches equipped with everything you need for a day on the sand, Playa de Poniente and Playa Levante.

Benidorm holidays aren’t just for all-night revellers, though. This city attracts travellers of all kinds, from LGBTQ+ folk to families. Kids will love its theme parks and water parks, while those seeking culture will enjoy discovering the city’s other side. Set on a hill up, picturesque Old Town is full of whitewashed houses, quaint squares and outdoor tapas bars tumbling along a warren of streets. It’s here that Spanish culture reigns supreme, where small taverns churn out steaming paellas and fresh grilled seafood.
