Top attractions of Benidorm

There is more to Benidorm than hot sun and gorgeous Blue Flag beaches. Check out two of Benirdorm's must-see attractions:


Stroll the narrow cobblestone streets of the Old Quarter (or Vellaguarda) of this picture-perfect whitewashed village that sprawls across a hilltop offering magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and Altea Bay.

A favourite haunt in the 60s for artists, musicians and writers, Altea offers a delightful mix of well-preserved Moorish and Mediterranean architecture. The new town sits in front of a palm-fringed seafront promenade that edges a 6km white-sand and shingle beach indented with cliffs.

Enjoy the local fiestas (held often), delicious local cuisine and browse the many handicraft shops. Escape the crowds of Benidorm for a day or stay longer at the Melia Altea Hills Resort Hotel, located in the Altea hills just 2km from the beach. Altea is about 10km from Benidorm.

El Castell de Guadalest

Stroll stonewalled walkways in this 16th century Moorish castle town boasting picturesque fortifications that sit perched across a mountain ridge. Savour magnificent views overlooking the nearby lake and surrounding mountains then wander the narrow streets and squares of the whitewashed Old Town.

Guadalest is around 20km inland from Benidorm and is easily accessible by bus or hire car.
