1. Mediterranean balcony
The balcony of the Mediterranean (Balcon del Mediterraneo) is considered the main attraction of Benidorm. It is located on a cliff between two city beaches: on the left side you will see Levante beach in all its splendor, and on the left side the immense beach of Poniente. There used to be a fortress on this rock, which protected the city from a sudden attack by Berber and Algerian pirates.
Now the Benidorm Balcony is not only an observation deck with a magnificent view of the Mediterranean and skyscrapers, but also a full-fledged architectural masterpiece with a white stone balustrade. There is also a telescope on the observation deck, where you can see the small uninhabited island of Benidorm in the distance. The beautiful panoramic views that open from the Mediterranean Balcony have made it one of the most popular urban tourist destinations.
2. The old city of Benidorm
From the Mediterranean Balcony you can go straight down to Benidorm's next attraction, the Old Town (El Casco Antiguo). This is the busiest part of the city, where there are always a lot of tourists, especially in the summer. Many people visit the Old Town in the evening when the heat subsides and walking along the old streets of Benidorm becomes even more pleasant, and a large number of restaurants and cafes with Spanish cuisine are great for a hearty dinner.
In the Old Town, you will be pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere that is inherent in many tourist cities in Spain: music, fun, delicious food and seascapes are around. Be sure to drop by the old castle square (Plaza del Castillo), and from there take a walk along Paseo de Colon to the port of Benidorm.
3. Church of St. Joachim and St. Anne
Another important landmark of Benidorm, located in the Old Town, is the Church of St. Joachim and St. Anne (Iglesia de San Jaime y Santa Ana). This beautiful Catholic church was built in Benidorm in the 18th century (between 1740 and 1780) immediately after the establishment of the new patroness of the city - the Holy Virgin Protector.
The church was built in a neoclassical style with a white facade and ocher-painted moldings and cornices. The temple is crowned with a blue dome, which is one of the typical in Mediterranean Catholic buildings. The church is located on the top of Kanfali hill, you can find the main entrance to this temple in the old city, or rather, in San Jaime Square ().
4. The city beach of Levante
Levante (La playa de Levante) is a beautiful sandy beach in Benidorm, where in the season it is always crowded and lively. The total length of the Levante beach reaches 2 kilometers, but the entire coastline is usually filled with tourists. Therefore, if you relax in Benidorm in the summer and want to take a free deck chair near the sea, it is better to come to the coast early. Levante Beach is located in a completely urban environment and can be easily reached from the hotel on foot. The only negative, which tourists note, is not very convenient entry into the water due to marble tiles.

In its most central part there is a nightclub and entertainment area where tourists who come to Benidorm love to spend time.
5. The city beach of Poniente
But if you want a less noisy and calm city beach, then it is better to choose Poniente for relaxation. This three-kilometer beach is also located near the old town only in the opposite direction from Levante beach. There are not many vacationers on Poniente beach, so it is suitable for those who do not like noisy places and crowds of vacationers. True, in terms of animation and entertainment, Poniente Beach is also inferior to Levante Beach.
Poniente beach is very wide and extended even in comparison with the beaches of neighboring Spanish cities. It has a well-developed infrastructure, there are areas for sun loungers, playgrounds for children, gates for playing soccer and volleyball net. There are many small restaurants and hotels near the beach, since every summer Benidorm experiences a real tourist boom.
