Gossip & Events

We need your stories about Benidorm, good or bad ! tell the community about offers, good pubs and places to eat ..or avoid team@whatsonbenidorm.com

We love Benidorm and we all love the beaches and they have been awarded the Blue Flag award. Levante, Poniente and Mal Pas beaches will all proudly fly the flag on what is the town’s greatest attraction for many. Levante and Poniente beaches stretch for miles and we love the Mal Pas beach ,its a small and cosy spot sandy cove situated in the Old Town, directly by the harbour and particularly popular with families. Its very accessable and toilets are close by.

Just spent a couple of weeks down the road at El Campello, about 15 mins from the airport .Its well worth the drive if you are staying nearby,its a small version of Benidorm and has a nice harbour and beach . From here you can get the a3 tram into Alicante approx 20 mins and is quite cheap couple of euros make sure you stay till the last stop and you will emerge from the underground station right in to the middle of Alicante .Loads of shops !

If you decide to drive to Alicante or vice versa, here is a quick map and time taken.
