Benidorm island is an islet located around 3.5 kilometres from the coast of mainland Benidorm. It has many nicknames; The Rock, as some believe it’s the missing chunk from the top of Puig Campana mountain behind Benidorm, and Peacock Island, due to the large peacock population. Whatever name you give it, this small island is definitely worth a visit during your holiday to Benidorm.
You can reach Benidorm Island from the mainland by a glass bottom boat, it’s a great way of seeing fish and other animals living under the sea. You can also admire the view of Benidorm’s spectacular skyline and surrounding mountains on your way over, some say the whole trip is worth it just for the view. As Benidorm Island is a nature reserve, there are plenty of animals to see, especially birds. There are also many flowers and plants to enjoy and if you wander up the path to the summit, you’ll get a great view across Costa Blanca, all the way to Alicante. There is a café on the island but we recommend taking a picnic, find a comfy spot and enjoy your surroundings.
