Practical information about Benidorm
Easy access to all year round sun
One of the main reasons that Benidorm draws so many tourists every year, and why it started as the go-to European coastal destination in the late 20th century, is its guaranteed access to the sun. The warm rays bless the stunning coastlines of Costa Blanca every day of the year and provide the chance to spend days relaxing on the beach, escaping from the world. When it gets too much, take a dip in the beautiful blue Mediterranean waters, or better yet, cool off in your resort’s own private pool, nestled away from the main town itself. If you’re from the UK or a neighbouring European country, then all this can be yours in just three hours’ time, making last minute Benidorm trips almost irresistible.
What is the weather in Benidorm
Typically, the weather in Benidorm is very warm and sunny. It really is the ideal location for all year round sunny escapes to Spain. Like in the UK, the hottest time to visit Benidorm is in the summer months where temperatures typically reach 30 degree celsius and above in August. Temperatures can dip as low as 17 in January, but they soon pick up as the year progresses.
What budget to plan?
Another wonderful thing about last minute Benidorm holidays is that you can pick up a real steal! For just 50 Euros a day, you can expect to find a wonderful all-inclusive resort and still have money left over for drinks by the beach and any other activities you might expect. As with any holiday, you get what you pay for and, for as high 100 Euros a day and above, you will find wonderful 3 and 4-star resorts all offering high-quality food and drinks packages. But for the best last-minute Benidorm deals, be sure to look at the exclusive offers we currently have.
Endless activities to keep you entertained
Beyond relaxing and topping up your tan, Benidorm offers plenty to do in the daytime that you won’t get the chance to do back home. You could visit one of the local water parks such as Aqualandia, Mundomar or Terra Mitica. They’re within easy access of all parts of Benidorm and are a great choice for adults and kids alike. Alternatively, visit Playa de Levante beach and do some jet skiing, parasailing or any other number of high octane water sports. The entire region is very popular for horse walking, or if you’re more comfortable on two legs, go for some mountain walking and take in the phenomenal views of the coastline from up high.
It’s no secret that Benidorm has for years become a real party capital of Spain for British tourists, meaning if drinking sangria and beer into the long hours of the night is what you enjoy, you’ll find endless opportunities. Similarly, there are a lot of English-themed bars, pubs and restaurants to help you remember the taste of home. However, Benidorm is best enjoyed by trying some of the phenomenal local cuisines. True Spanish dining means ordering yourself and your fellow guests tapas, which is a number of seafood, meat, vegetable and bread dishes. These are usually all locally sourced and fresh and are the perfect accompaniment to a glass of wine or a nice cold beer while you watch the sunset along the horizon.
