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.
As a coastal town, Benidorm offers an endless variety and possibilities of water sports, sailing, kayaking, cable skiing or scuba diving. If you dare, you can practice skiing, mono skiing, figures or the latest: wakeboarding, from a platform located out to sea on Levante where they await you from Easter to October.
If you want to learn about the hidden secrets of the sea bed, initiate a new diving adventure in the small coves with transparent waters. If you already know about the pleasures of diving, then you must visit the small islands of Benidorm. A dive you will not forget in a marine reserve with a large number of protected species.
Active & Sports Tourism
Benidorm is an open, active, and friendly town. Bordering the Mediterranean Sea and sheltered by the Serra Gelada Natural Park, making the resort unique. A place that incites participating in activities, sport, adventure and nurtures health, fitness and wellbeing, a town full of fun and diversity.
Benidorm offers the possibility to practice sports and adventure activities on land, sea and air, a town that does not deprive itself of anything, where everything is possible and where each person can find what they are looking for. Its more than five kilometres of promenades are an inviting excuse for sports activities opposite the sea.
Crossing sierras or valleys on horseback or mountain bike is a real adventure, and so is climbing peaks, descending ravines, or investigating interesting caves. Slipping down rivers in rafts, traversing lagoons in a canoe, and rowing to secluded coves in a kayak, these are just a few of the many activities you can enjoy during your stay in Benidorm.
