Benidorm, Spain: a city with history

Located on Spain's eastern Costa Blanca coast, the city of Benidorm has a history that stretches back thousands of years; evidence suggests that Benidorm was settled as far back as 3000 BC by the Romans and Punics, though the city's name stems from the Arabic name given to it by the Moors. Benidorm started to play a more important role in the early 1300s when the Christians began the process of expelling the Moors from the area and settling it themselves.

Over the course of the following centuries Benidorm was attacked again and again by pirates, which kept the city from growing. Eventually piracy became less of a problem and innovations were made in the local agricultural scene. At the same time the local fishing business began to boom, and it was for fishing that Benidorm was primarily known in Spain and abroad until fairly recently.

Despite centuries of success for the fishing industry, it began to decline in the mid-20th century, paving the way for tourism. Today, Benidorm has the distinction of being Europe's and Spain's largest holiday resort destination as numerous visitors from all over the world flock to the Costa Brava to soak up the Spanish sun and explore the culturally rich province of the Alicante . In fact, though the city only has a permanent population of about 70,000, it boasts the most high-rise buildings per capita in the entire world. This gives Benidorm a fantastic skyline that is the perfect backdrop for your next family holiday in one of several Benidorm apartments available as holiday rentals.

A bustling city with lots to do

Booking one of our Benidorm apartments puts you in the ideal position to take advantage of everything the city and the surrounding area have to offer-and the options are extensive. One of the main attractions, of course, is the beach life. The Costa Blanca gives you access to picturesque beaches and pristine water where you can spend your days tanning or playing in the water with your loved ones. In fact, the three main beaches in Benidorm - Playa de Levante, Playa de Poniente, and Plays de Mal Pas - have all been awarded a blue flag, which indicates the highest level of quality recognized within the EU. This ensures both you and your children can head out from your Benidorm apartment to safely experience the beauty of Spanish beaches without a care in the world. But there is much more to Benidorm than just idyllic beaches.

Alongside the beautiful waterfront, you'll discover several theme parks and water parks, including Terra Mitica, Aqualandia, and Mundomar, to name just a few. Aqualandia is the perfect destination for families who prefer fresh water to saltwater. The variety of slides and water rides will keep kids and adults alike entertained for hours, all the while surrounded by natural beauty that will take your breath away. What's more, tickets to Aqualandia can be combined with other tourist destinations such as Mundomar, allowing you to save money without sacrificing on the number of places you can visit during your stay in our Benidorm apartments.

Terra Mitica focuses more on roller coasters and other popular amusement park rides, adding a level of excitement familiar to anyone who has ever been strapped into roller coasters around the world. Though young children will also have a blast here, the rides mean that this is a place suited to older kids who can enjoy cruising around the tracks with their parents-or by themselves while their parents gleefully take pictures from the unmoving comfort of the ground.

The marina is a great place to head if you enjoy watching boats sail in and out, and if you plan on exploring nearby Benidorm Island or Tabarca Island, this is where you'll depart. In addition to even more great beaches, a trip to Tabarca Island is perfect for those who love putting on a pair of goggles and diving into the water for a bit of snorkelling. Those looking to discover the island's culture can head to the island museum, which informs you about the development and history of the island over the years.

Back in Benidorm you'll also find a variety of fascinating museums, such as the Agricultural Museum, the House Museum, and several art galleries showcasing local, Spanish, and international art from various eras. For both the younger and the older members of the family, these museums represent an excellent opportunity to learn more about not just Benidorm, but various other arts, cultures, and industries, transforming a fun holiday into an educational one!

Nightlife in Benidorm

Given its renowned status amongst tourists, it should come as no surprise that Benidorm also has a bustling nightlife. One of the most popular events is Sticky Vicky. This popular magic show is geared toward adults and is thus an ideal option for parents taking the night off or for groups of friends looking to share some laughs. The show is held in a different venue every night, so be sure to look up where the show will be while you are in town.

There are also any number of bars, clubs, and music venues that cater to a wide variety of tastes and interests. From nightclubs with pulsing beats to relaxed bars where you can enjoy a pint in a comfortable atmosphere, you will definitely find what you are looking for on any night of the week. Prices vary from place to place, but many clubs have no entry fee, so you can dance the night away without breaking your budget.

Cuisine in Benidorm

A trip to Spain would be incomplete without sampling the local cuisine, and Benidorm does not disappoint. The seafood is fresh and delicious and available in the numerous restaurants spread throughout the city. Back when the city was primarily a fishing area, tuna was the main catch; today, it continues to be a mainstay.

Even if you are not a fan of seafood, your palette will rejoice in Benidorm's culinary treats. Tapas bars abound throughout Benidorm, allowing you to sample a little bit of everything: Spanish sausage, potatoes with local sauces, Spanish ham, and much, much more. Paired with local and regional wines, even the most discerning aficionado will find more than enough local food to fill their stomachs. Given its reputation across the world as a tourist destination, Benidorm is also home to numerous international restaurants, so even while on holiday you can travel the world from meal to meal.

It is near all necessary shops and restaurants, with easy access to buses and taxis. It is extremely well appointed, with modern, clean and tasteful decor, a lovely big shower in the sparkling bathroom and the incredible view all along the length of the Playa Levante. This is by far the nicest rental property that I have stayed in. A great way to start the holiday.
