Surfing is so popular nowadays that you can meet fans of this sport in any sea city. Benidorm is no exception. Happy people with planks splash in the waves from morning to evening. And recently paddle surfing is gaining popularity – you need to stand on the board and control the paddle.
For paddle surfing, waves, wind and physical training are absolutely not necessary, and even a child can do it. Local clubs and sports schools offer surfing and paddle surfing courses. Thanks to the warm water and sandy bottom, training is as safe and comfortable as possible, experts monitor the state of the sea and will not allow you to study if this is contraindicated. Equipment can be rented there or at small rental points that are located along the entire coast.
Another popular activity is water skiing. On Levante Beach, about 50 meters from the shore, you can see the starting platform, and there is a ticket booth on the shore. An hour of skiing costs 26 euros with equipment rental.
Cala Tio Ximo beach
Tio Ximo Beach is located in a small bay in the north of Benidorm. Large waves do not enter here, making the Tio Ximo ideal for a calm and lazy swim. The sandy beach and rocky bottom ensure the clarity of the water and its incredible azure color. And under the water is a breathtaking marine world that is worth seeing with your own eyes. Tio Ximo bay is one of the most popular diving spots. After the huge and noisy Levante beach, the bay seems to be a very quiet and peaceful place. It is also a favorite place for a variety of photo shoots.
The length of the beach is only 70 meters, of the amenities there are only umbrellas and sun loungers for hire. Despite this, the beach is quite popular. An asphalt road leads here, you can get there by car, but there is no equipped parking, and places on the sides are very limited. We recommend that you leave your car in the city and walk to the beach.
Snorkeling in Benidorm
There is so much entertainment on the Costaablanca coast. And in the air, and on the ground, and even under water! The variety of activities attracts a large number of tourists, because everyone here will find something to their liking.
For those who want to get better acquainted with the underwater world of Benidorm, but are afraid to dive with scuba diving, there is snorkeling – this is swimming right under the surface of the water with a mask, snorkel and fins.

Kayaking in Benidorm
Kayaking is a wonderful outdoor activity. This is a good opportunity to see the surroundings from the sea, sunbathe and test your endurance. You can go kayaking alone, enjoying the unity with nature, with friends, or even with an excursion group, listening to interesting stories. These tours are offered by tour desks and nautical clubs such as Capitan Kayak, Fun & Quads Adventure. Experienced guides – connoisseurs of the surroundings will show you the rarest places that a common tourist is unlikely to find on his own.
The most popular and easiest route is to walk to the islet of Benidorm, which is located directly opposite the beach. It lasts approximately 45 minutes and costs 50 euros at the Capitan Kayak. Even beginners can easily master this adventure. More sophisticated tourists can try their hand at traveling along the coast, past the Albir Lighthouse and the colorful Ifach Cliff. Be sure to bring sunscreen, glasses, and a light snack. Prices for such swims will depend on the destination and individual nuances. You can find information on current excursions on the websites.

The waters of the Costablanca are too beautiful not to see it with your own eyes. Benidorm is very popular with diving enthusiasts due to its calm waters and rich underwater world.

The Diving Stones Club – one of the most popular in Benidorm – is located right in the city center. Experienced instructors will provide you with equipment, teach you everything you need to know and make sure you are safe.
The most beautiful places for diving are the coves of Tio Chimo and Almadraba, the islet of Benidorm. If you move a little away from the city, you can see the wreck of a sunken ship at the Ifach rock, visit the Elephant Cave or meet octopuses in La Cala Bay. Whichever location you choose, the beauty of the underwater world will still be beautiful. Experienced instructors will supply you with equipment, teach you everything you need to know, and make sure you are safe.

Extreme entertainment in Benidorm
If you are ready for an adrenaline and serotonin rush, we advise you to admire Benidorm and its surroundings from a rather unusual side – from the height of a seagull!
Parasailing is flying over the sea with a parachute attached to a boat. The feeling of freedom and incredible aesthetic pleasure is guaranteed to absolutely everyone. It’s safe and very, very fun.
Paragliding – flying on a glider – is a slightly more extreme option, but no less exciting. Unlike a parachute, the glider can be steered, even upward if you want to. Complete beginners can try a pair flight with an instructor.
Such entertainment can be found at tourist offices or on your own on the Internet. Some of the most popular companies are Summer Paragliding and Outbound Adventures, they have their own pricing sites and many positive reviews on TripAdvisor. The price of such an amazing experience is from 90/100 euros, it all depends on the flight time and individual nuances.
Poniente Beach is one of the most spacious in Benidorm, its length is 3 kilometers, but unlike its neighbor, Levante Beach, it is calmer and quieter, well suited for a measured family vacation. The part closest to Kala Hill is considered to be especially calm; it is located far from the center and the noisy promenade. The eastern part is the busiest, because the Old City is three steps away. The good thing for children is that the entrance to the water is shallow, the depth does not start immediately, and this is a great place to learn to swim. The beach infrastructure is fully equipped, there is a medical center and rescue towers. And the entertainment is provided by beach volleyball courts, cable parks for children, mattress and sports equipment rental centers.
There is no natural shade on the beach, only umbrellas provide it, which you can rent for 4.5 euros per day, there you will also find sun loungers. Interesting fact: the promenade adjacent to the Poniente beach is on the 4th place among the most beautiful in the world!
Terra Mitika is not a simple amusement park, but a whole historical and cultural entertainment center for children and adults. On an area of more than 100 hectares, you will plunge into ancient history, get a lot of new experiences and have fun from the heart, having received a dose of adrenaline in the rides. Here are the largest roller coasters in Europe! The ancient world is represented by five zones: Rome, Greece, Egypt, Iberia and the Mediterranean islands. You will be entertained by an incredible number of actors, acrobats, live sculptures, which, coupled with incredible scenery, sound and lighting effects, will allow you to feel the atmosphere of a fabulous celebration and magic for the whole day.

The longest and busiest beach in Benidorm is located right in the center of the city opposite the small island of Isla de la Olya. In summer, the beach attracts a large number of tourists, this is an ideal place not only for a beach holiday, but also for active marine sports such as surfing, diving, kayaking. All equipment is rented on the spot. Interesting attractions work for children on the beach, including an inflatable island in the water.

No wonder Levante beach is one of the favorite places for tourists and residents of the city, because really there is literally everything for a wonderful holiday. And since 2003 it has been marked with the Blue Flag, which is proof of its cleanliness, safety and a high level of comfort.
The Sierra Helada mountain range is located between Benidorm, Albir, Altea and since 2005 it has been recognized as a national park. The mountain coast, part of the sea and the three islands includes Sierra Helada. The main attraction of the park is the lighthouse of Albir, which is also an information center where hiking routes of varying complexity converge. Before going on the trail, carefully study the map and take a supply of water with you.
Here you can not only walk, but also swim. Near the rocks under water, divers enjoy a wonderful view of the marine flora and fauna, where you can meet moray eels, octopuses and many bright fish. Sometimes even dolphins swim in these waters. And from the port of Altea and Benidorm there are pleasure boats with a transparent bottom, where you can enjoy the underwater life without diving. The fauna is no less interesting above water – on the rocks gulls, peregrine falcons, and predatory swifts nest and hunt.
The opening hours of the park depend on the season and the day of the week, for example, in the summer it is open from 9:00 to 13:00 from Monday to Friday, but you can come there in the evening only from Wednesday to Saturday.

Mal Pas Beach
Mal Pas Beach is located in the heart of the city. And although it is only 120 meters in length, it is rightly called the most beautiful beach of Benidorm. Despite the fact that it is located in the very center, the beach is surrounded by rocky ledges and palm trees, hiding it from the bustling crowd. And immediately on the left side behind the rocks begins the Old Town. From there they get to the beach, stone steps lead from the city to the sea.
The beach is cleaned daily, sand is evened and the surf strip is cleaned, and of course, there is all the infrastructure necessary for tourists – changing rooms, toilets and showers. Strong waves do not reach there, which makes it ideal for families with children. There is a rental point for catamarans, umbrellas and deck chairs, although the sand is fine and soft. The cost of a chaise lounge and an umbrella in a set is 9 euros.
A lively promenade with cafes, bars, restaurants and souvenir shops begins a three-minute walk from the beach. Here you can spend a wonderful day from morning to late evening.

All roads lead… to Benidorm!
As they say, all roads lead … to Benidorm! This colorful town by the sea attracts tourists from all over the world all year round, but it is especially good in the summer, when it is simply impossible to resist the beach and the sea.
From any Spanish autonomy, the roads to Benidorm have been rolled for a long time and the navigator will help you! Like any country in the European Union, Spain is connected by network of excellent automobile routes that lead to this sunny oasis, from Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia and other major cities.
If you are already in Spain or even in France, then we probably have not to tell you about the excellent local railway connection? High-speed, very comfortable trains will take you to the ESTACION RENFE in Alicante in a few hours. From the station in 10 minutes you can walk to the bus stop Estación del Autobuses, and there you can easily reach Benidorm.

If you first need to get to the city of Alicante, then you can get from the airport by an ordinary city bus, and then change to a regular bus or tram number 1, which runs every 30 minutes. Such trips will cost quite good price – no more than 10 euros per person. But a taxi from the airport to Benidorm can cost 80-90 euros.
Perhaps you value your time and do not want to worry about it? Then just book a transfer from Alicante by calling the reception at Caballito de Mar, and our driver will meet you and get you right to the door of the hotel.
Enjoy your travels and see you in Benidorm!
Spanish cuisine is not just food, it is a tourist attraction. Seafood, olives, Jamon and wine alone are worth it to come to Spain. But in fact, this is only a small part of all the delicacies. Food in Spain is loved and respected, so you should visit different parts of the country and enjoy the diversity of taste.
The most popular and light dish is Tortilla. A scrambled eggs with potatoes and, possibly, with the addition of other vegetables. It’s hard to find a place where you wouldn’t be served tortillas. The same goes for Toastado for breakfast – toasted bread with olive oil, with grated fresh tomato, with Jamon or cheese. In summer, Gazpacho is especially good – cold tomato soup. And of course, do not forget about Paella, the queen of Spanish cuisine. It is cooked in a special wide pan and consists of rice, sauce and any meat or seafood as desired. All this splendor goes well with Spanish wines, which are also considered the pride of the country. And for dessert – Churros, fried strips of dough, sprinkled with hot chocolate with excellent Spanish coffee!
The beauty of Spanish food is that it is easy to cook at home. Everything you need can be found in local markets, in shops and in retail stores. The Spaniards are proud of their cuisine and will gladly recommend only the freshest products. Of course, you know that our apartments have fully equipped kitchens, so you can easily prepare something interesting and very Spanish! A delicious morning breakfast with stunning views will create an excellent mood for the whole day. And the combination of local color and home comfort will make your stay unforgettable and very comfortable!

The modern resort town is located on the Mediterranean coast and is happy to welcome tourists from year to year.

And the Serra Helada Natural Park will impress even the most avid urbanist. You can talk about the restaurants of Benidorm, about the freshness of local seafood for a long time, but to be brief, they are magnificent.
Of course, this summer some activities will have slight differences compared to last season, but this will not particularly affect your vacation.

You just need to follow the rules, buy all passes and tickets in advance online, and, of course, choose the right place to live. From the spacious terrace of the “Caballito de Mar” Aparthotel you can enjoy the view of the historic city center, and at the same time, you can quickly find yourself on the wonderful Poniente or Mal Pas beach, because the distance from your doors to the sea is only 250 meters.

Costa Blanca is recognized as the healthiest region to live
Did you know the Costa Blanca has been recognized as the healthiest region to live by the World Health Organization (WHO)!
The Costa Blanca is especially a pleasant area for people with respiratory problems, asthma, skin problems such as with open sores, psoriasis and allergies. People with rheumatism or other muscle or joint problems tend to feel much better in this microclimate.
With more than 300 days of a year of sunshine, you can enjoy agreeable temperatures the whole year through. The annual average temperature is 18º, which means that in the summer the temperature isn´t extremely high, and the temperature in the winter will be relatively warm.
These temperatures come because of the microclimate in the area. The Costa Blanca is cloaked by the warm Mediterranean Sea to the east and mountains just a few kilometers inland to the west. Both are string forces in keeping the good weather in and the bad weather out!
