1. Playa de Poniente
What is it? Benidorm’s greatest glory is its beach. Two beaches, in fact, which spread each side of the historic town, and curve for miles around the bay. Both are pristine and well equipped, but the Playa de Levante sees more action, while the Playa de Poniente is a little more chilled.
Why go? Benidorm wouldn’t be Benidorm without its beaches, which are easily some of the best on the whole of the Costa Blanca. These stunning swathes of golden sand stretch for more than 5 kilometres, and are packed with beach bars, water sports and everything you need for unbridled fun in the sun.
