Renowned for its beaches, Benidorm has become a popular holiday hotspot for good reason. This buzzing resort in sunny Costa Blanca is one of the original Spanish beach resorts. With golden sands, lively nightlife and beachfront hotels just a stone's throw from late-night bars and family-friendly restaurants, it's little wonder Benidorm holidays are such a popular choice for all ages.
The resort has been a favourite holiday destination for British families and couples for decades. There's no shortage of British-themed bars, and you're likely to spot a Union Jack or two as you explore the fish and chip shops, pubs and restaurants of the resort. Further away from the seafront there's the opportunity to soak up Spanish culture at some of the more traditional bars and restaurants. Splash about at Aqualandia waterpark, laze on the golden sandy beaches or party until dawn in Benidorm's bars and clubs. This destination has something for everyone.
