Beach – People – Amusement
Benidorm is only beach. Too much people, too much youth, too much amusement, too much noise, too much business, too much… Spanish holidays.
And too much Portuguese, always and everywhere.
Levante is the most “in” of the beaches, and where everything happens.
If you don’t mind sharing a square meter of sand with five people, dispute the narrow corridors (if some) between the chairs to reach the water, and sleep… when possible, then you’ll be happy in Benidorm.
Tedium is the only forbidden thing in place
A few kilometers west of central Benidorm, this beautiful beach offers the same quality of water, in a more calm ambiance, and, of course, the animation of Benidorm is only minutes away.
In my first time in Benidorm, I choose a hotel in Altea, where we could really sleep. In my second time I stayed in the high part of Benidorm, distant from the sea, but not much from the noise.
My third time (if it comes), will probably be here.
Wrong! Not yet! My third time was once more in Levante, by the beach. I will write about it (and add better photos)
Sierra Helada Park
East of Benidorm, the coast becomes extremely steep, with cliffs topping 300 meters.
The landscape is arid, but the strong tourism around it forced the authorities to declare it a Natural park.
