Known as the Beach where the sun rises, this is the best known beach in Benidorm with its length of 3 kilometres. Lined by a promenade and characteristic night-time illumination, this is the most visited beach. The Levante Beach stretches from the centre to the Rincón de Loix area alongside a great variety of bars and cafes. With its children’s playground equipment, cable ski installation and library (opened daily from 11:00 till 16:00H year round), it offers a lot more to enjoy than just sunbathing and swimming.
With a length of 4 kilometres and a 100 meters width, Poniente (where the sun sets) Beach is the largest beach of Benidorm. Its recently redesigned promenade received an important award for global design from the Architecture and Design Museum of Chicago. This beach is quieter than Levante Beach and Spanish users are predominant. Like Levante Beach, every day is welcomed with clean sand, thanks to Benidorm’s mechanical beach cleaning service. The port is situated at the extreme closest to the town’s centre and hosts a Yachting Club and a varied fleet of ships. This beach also offers playgrounds and a library that opens from 11:00 till 16:00H on a daily basis.
Mal Pas Beach
You will find cosy Mal Pas beach hidden between the Levante and Poniente beaches, just next to the port, in a little bay. This beach has a length of only 120 metres. On its north side it delimits the Punta Canfali, the rock that’s also known as the Balcony to the Mediterranean Sea. Due to its protected situation, this beach rarely has high waves. It has been awarded with the blue flag for its quality, providing basic services such as beach chairs, parasols, lifeguards and foot showers. There is a blue parking zone nearby.
The Finestrat Bay or Cala de Finestrat is the only beach in the territory of Finestrat, which borders the municipalities of Benidorm and Villajoyosa. The beach is formed by a sandy bay with a 300m length and 50m width and includes a promenade. There is a playground for the little ones with parking lots, restaurants and cafés.
Cala del Tio Ximo
If what you like is a beach at the foot of the mountains you will surely like this small bay, hidden at the foot of the mountains beneath the Cross of the Rincón de Loix. It’s a beach with fine sand, rocks and crystal clear waters and it never gets very crowded. This beach, surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape, is the starting point of many diving excursions because of the rich submarine fauna that’s found here.
