How to get to Benidorm and where to stay
Reaching the city is very simple and also very cheap: Benidorm is just a few kilometers from Alicante or Valencia ; just book a low-cost flight to one of these two airports and from there hang a bus, which will take you to your destination in just an hour’s journey. Even the overnight stay is very cheap on average and the types of accommodation can satisfy every traveler: Benidorm is the second Spanish city by number of hotels after Barcelona.
If you are looking for a central location immersed in the heart of Benidorm’s nightlife, the best option is surely to book a room in one of the hundreds of hotels that crowd the historic center of the city: the Colon hotel for example is located right in front of the beach in the city center and offers breathtaking rooms; the hotel La Santa Faz instead is ideal for those looking for central accommodation spending as little as possible. If, on the other hand, you want to opt for a quieter but equally comfortable accommodation, the best choice is certainly an apartment, perhaps one of the many accommodations on top of the skyscrapers from which you can admire the extraordinary skylineof the city, such as the Apartamentos Gemelos .

Benidorm is considered the Spanish seaside resort town . Its splendid coast consists of two large beaches separated by the small harbor and the panoramic Balcón del Mediterráneo: the Playa de Levante is the main and most visited, it is 2km of beach dotted with pubs and clubs offering all kinds of entertainment; the Playa de Poniente, on the opposite side, is quieter and less crowded, because more distant from the center. Both beaches are free and easily reachable on foot, just cross the avenue and choose any point to enjoy the wonderful crystal clear sea of Benidorm.
