Beaches & Coves
Fine golden sand, transparent waters and beaches that are clean and cared for throughout the year identifies the Benidorm seafront. At its north end, there are two small coves of sand and rock that are very suitable for diving and for those who like to swim alone.
Further on starts the bustling promenade of the popular and busy Levante beach, which in addition to its many facilities on offer, also has the added attraction of being lively throughout the year.
South of the port, the Poniente beach competes in beauty and facilities with Levante beach. Both have in common the fact they, thanks to its orientation, enjoy sunshine in winter all day until sunset and in summer until after eight. Between them, in a section that corresponds to the old town and the shelter of the Canfali hill, is the small cove of Mal Pas and opposite, the Benidorm island, a paradise for scuba divers.
