    Anne 23rd and 24th are the Noche de San Juan. Two nights of late night drinking and lighting of bonfires on the beach. The Fuengirola paseo webcam has a good view of it all

    Wendy, I would suggest towards the end of the Levante near the old town Calle Gerona is closed to traffic at night and there are a few smaller pubs with live music and lots of nice restaurants it's mainly couples and not stags and hens who seem to stay at the Levante area near the Marina Hotel but this is easily avoided you should give it another try

    Not been to Benidorm for over 10yrs, don't fancy the late nights in Levante with the stag and hens- must be getting old but is there much live entertainment in the old town. Any suggestions or recommendations?

    Hi Bella, yes I get the picture, I gave Benidorm a miss for years because I listened to people saying it was like Blackpool well I think there is not much wrong with Blackpool so I thought I would give it a try and wish I'd went much sooner so much to explore I can't wait to go again in September

    Hi Anne
    I'm a Benidorm Newby! Hubby been trying years to get me to go for years- I thought it would bejust wall to wall party brits - how wrong I was so I went 3 years ago and am hooked! Lovely quiet places in the old town and so many other places that are a bus ride away. So many shops too. And clean. Great food for all tastes. I do love tapas though. I could go on but you get the picture

Benidorm - Playa de Poniente - Puerto

Also known in the world as "New York of the Mediterranean" as well as the "Spanish Rimini", the stunning city of Benidorm is a dream for people looking for a quiet getaway, as well as fun without giving up the chance to participate in a range of watersports and recreational activities including shopping and sightseeing.

Only during the last century tourism begins to move towards Benidorm, from a small fishing village visited by few people it rapidly became a thriving holiday paradise, the tourism mass and a new richer offer including high quality accommodation and services had an immediate impact on the growth of the city. The natural combination of a Mediterranean climate and naturalistic beauties make Benidorm today one of the first holiday destinations of Europe with a number of recreational activities for all ages and a refreshingly new and difference choice for dining and night entertainment.

Benidorm boasts large white and golden beaches and crystal clear waters, mostly visited especially during the sunny spring and summertime, every day is a pleasure in Benidorm, perfect relaxation and tranquility by day whether people want to relax and sunbathe or swim and play games on the beach, hundred of bars and night clubs for a vibrant night-life until the break of dawn; Benidorm is so exciting in the summer but also in winter season, its climate and good services and attractive scenery have turned it into a top tourist spot throughout the whole year, however its economy is partly still based on fishing industry as well. Benidorm boasts around 6 km long luxuriant coastline including two stunning beaches known as Poniente Beach (Playa de Poniente, Platja de Ponent) and Levante Beach (Playa de Levante, Platja de Llevant) in the heart of White Coast (Costa Blanca); with a length of 3 km. and a width of more than 100 m., Poniente Beach offers a number of shops, bars, restaurants, night clubs, hotels directly overlooking the sea, perfect for families with children, it is very close to the inner city and the old town center extending over a promontory, a very interesting spot for the curious tourists so attracted by its churches, monuments and surrounding areas.

The wonderful city of Benidorm is one of the most popular cities on the world-famous Costa Blanca, stretching over 200 km. from north of Alicante and Benidorm to Denia and running down to Pilar de la Horadada, it is a real magnet for nature lovers attracted by the Mediterranean scenery boasting wide beaches and sand dunes, cliffs and vivid sceneries on one side and mountain ranges as a natural protection by winds on the other. It is extremely easy to find quality restaurants with sun terraces and superb views on the bay of Benidorm, all guests will have the widest choice of attractive eateries and cafès offering the best culinary specialties of the Valencia region.
