About Benidorm and Costa Blanca

Benidorm: All you can do!

Benidorm is like the Spanish version of Las Vegas. You will find all amenities for children and adults you can imagine.

Terra Mitica (an amusement park), Aqualandia (a water amusement park) and other entertainments are within 2 miles of the apartments. Terra Natura is a place to enjoy nature, as well as the beautiful Benidorm Island, where protected plants and animals live.

Sports are another great option: jogging, running, skating by the beach, water-skiing, hiking, windsurf, snorkeling or diving are some examples. Some of the diving schools go to Benidorm Island for their trainings. Levante Beach also has a public library, where you can read while having a sunbath, and attractions for children, as well as water slides for all ages.

For a more relaxed activity, Benidorm has two golf courses less than 5 miles from us. One is in Terra Mitica (1-2 miles) and the other one in Altea. Don Cayo golf club in Altea is 5 miles away, being one classic golf course in the Valencian Community.

And of course dancing!! You can dance watching the greatest sunset of Costa Blanca, in cafes with orchestras by the beach, pubs or clubs. The English quarter, where all the pubs are, is 5 minutes walk from us. You can bar hop, which implies drinking and not driving, to see live performances, even stripteases.

Benidorm also counts with multiple celebrations such as the Fiesta Mayor in November, the Moros y Cristianos in October and the famous Fallas in March.
