El Balcón del Mediterráneo
From the balcony of El Balcón del Mediterráneo you can see both Benidorm’s 2km long island and its smallest beach. You’ll stand on top of the historic Pillars, an ancient vantage point that was once used by the Moors to monitor ships leaving the Mediterranean, who guided them to port safely using navigation The views here are expansive; take your time on, while soaking up the breathtaking scenery!
Plaza Santa Ana
Plaza Santa Ana is a small but charming plaza. It’s worth a stop to have a few drinks and people-watch while you’re there! The church next door, Iglesia de San Jaime y Santa Anna has been around for centuries – the 18th century was built for visitors from nearby villages who came to the city on pilgrimages or business trips to add religious enrichment to their lives.
The first thing you’ll notice when walking to the Levante (sunrise) laze from Poniente beach is how many tourists are in your way, with hundreds of hotels on the boulevard and crowds so dense you feel like sardines. In contrast, Poniente beach stands empty – also much larger than its counterpart – but devoid of any tourist attractions except peace and quiet. So if you care about that, it’s worth going to the latter beach. You can really relax and feel good on it. Check this place out!
Sierra Helada for people who love viewpoints
One way to beat the heat is to take a scenic hike in Benidorm. The highest point, Sierra Helada offers views not only of Spain’s most popular city, but also some of the amazing scenery you can see from its summit! It can be difficult to get there during the summer months, as it gets really hot; bring plenty of water and sunscreen for the walk.
A Spanish vacation like this can be the perfect opportunity to simultaneously lie on the beach, swim and relax, but also to visit interesting Spanish sights, go climbing, check out the beautiful views from points of interest, which are perfect for this. That’s why Benidorm, although besieged by tourists, is a superb place for a holiday. It is worth including it in your summer plans!
