Benidorm Honeymoon Guide
With magnificent golden-sand beaches, multiple accommodation and entertainment options, Benidorm offers everything you need for a fun-filled honeymoon in Spain.
The purpose-built beach resort of Benidorm offers a choice of three golden-sand beaches, four theme parks, more than 250 hotels, 500 bars, 400 restaurants and 150 discos and nightclubs – all the ingredients you need for a memorable honeymoon in Spain.
With its main beach strip flanked by towering hotels and apartment blocks, the popular resort of Benidorm is often called the ‘Manhattan of Spain’.
Benidorm’s two main beaches stretch in gentle crescents on either side of a rocky promontory known as the Balcón del Mar (photo), which effectively bisects the turquoise Bay of Benidorm.
Choose the centrally located and usually bustling 2km-long Playa de Levante or the less crowded 3km-long Playa de Ponienete, a short stroll away from the town centre.
Away from the beaches, stroll through the narrow streets of the Old Town, take in free cultural entertainment at the amphitheatre in Aigeura Park or head to one or all of Benidorm’s four major theme parks.
Choose from countless rides with worldwide themes at the huge Terra Mítica park, the Costa Blanca's answer to Disneyland, or thrill to the biggest choice of white-knuckle flumes, chutes and wave pools at Aqualandia’s water park – perfect for thrill-seeking honeymoon couples.
Watch performing dolphins, seals and exotic birds, as well as sea lions and turtles at Mundomar Marine Exotic Animal Park.
And see animals at Terra Natura, a new-generation wildlife park where you can come into contact with various animals as if there were no barriers – or at least, no visible ones!
Visit the picture-perfect whitewashed town of Altea and the old Moorish citadel at Guadalest, with magnificent panoramic views overlooking the lake and surrounding mountainous countryside.
Take a boat excursion out to Isle de Benidorm in the centre of the bay, tee-off at one of two 18-hole championship golf courses at the Westin Real de Faula Golf Resort & Spa or go hill walking in the mountains behind Playa de Levante.
Climb to the summit of Puig Campana, a 1406m-high mountain that overlooks Benidorm or hike its rocky slopes for spectacular views along the Costa Blanca.
After dark, party hard at the huge choice of bars, discos, nightclubs and live entertainment acts around town. Check out a show at the 2000-capacity venue Benidorm Palace or have a flutter at the roulette and blackjack tables of Casino Mediterráneo.
Benidorm offers a huge range of hotels to suit all budgets. If you want to splurge, try the deluxe Hotel Boutique Villa Venecia, next to Levante Beach in Benidorm Old Town. Or head the spacious Gran Hotel Delfin on Playa Poniente.
Find the best deal, compare prices and read what other travellers have to say about hotels in Benidorm at TripAdvisor.
To avoid the soaring heat and crowds of July and August, try to plan Benidorm holidays in May, June or September when the days are sunny with an average daily temperature of around 25°C. (77°F).
