Benidorm insider information

  • If you’re visiting Benidorm at the height of the tourist season and want to spend the day at one of the town’s two beaches, arrive early to grab a spot on the sand.
  • You can pick up souvenirs just about anywhere you choose: from the many gift shops, from the touts wandering the beach, from the hotel lobbies… One of the more enjoyable places to visit though is the outdoor market. Held every Wednesday and Sunday in the market square in the new town, it’s the place to buy clothes, leather, art or sunglasses. Further out of town, but also worth a visit is the Flea Market, El Cisne. It’s held at the weekends only and you can get there either by taxi or on the number 10 bus to Altea.
  • If you don’t decide to stop off at the flea market but keep going to Altea itself you’ll be pleasantly surprised. A much more “real” town than its neighbour Benidorm, Altea has great beaches and some beautiful old buildings – though the town is now undergoing a similar kind of construction that started in Benidorm in the 1960s and led to the huge array of skyscrapers. Many who fly to Benidorm also like to visit Altea.
  • Sample some churros – a Spanish speciality similar to a straight doughnut. It’s a deep-fried pastry which is popular in Spain and particularly the Valencia region.
  • One of Benidorm's top tourist attractions is Terra Mitica, a theme park with Europe's longest wooden rollercoaster. Another is Terra Natura, a new-generation wildlife park on 320,000 square metres with four themed areas: Pangea, America, Asia and Europe.
