Spain has many beautiful coastal regions that draw visitors from around the world. Holidays to Benidorm are popular among holiday makers who want to experience Spain’s sunny Costa Blanca. It has countless benefits that make it a great choice for a holiday. Here are just three of them.
Benidorm is the perfect place for a classic “sun, sea, and sand” holiday, due to its many spectacular beaches that stretch for six kilometres in total. They are extremely clean and have Blue Flag Awards for water cleanliness. The most central, Levante, is a long curving beach with golden sands. It can be a bit crowded, due to it’s popularity. However there is another beach that’s a little quieter, but still popular, called Poliente. It has a modern and attractive promenade amongst other amenities. There are several more secluded beaches and coves in the area that offer peace and quiet, if you prefer to avoid the crowds.
On Wednesdays and Sundays, Benidorm’s popular outdoor market sells everything under the sun. Bargain hunters can enjoy huge savings if they negotiate for the best price, while those who love to browse will find lots to see. The market does get busy, so visitors are advised to get there early. The Outdoor Market is located in the Parte Vieja area, close to the Hotel Pueblo.
Perfect Outdoor Weather
Whether you want to laze on the sand or be active in the sea, the year-round sunshine makes it possible whenever you visit. Like most of southern Spain, Benidorm enjoys many hours of bright sunshine every day; an average of six hours in the winter and twelve in the summer. The surrounding hills help to circulate gentle sea breezes, which means that the heat does not feel too uncomfortable, even in the height of summer when it can reach 30 degrees C.
These are just three of the reasons that draw vacationers to Benidorm, whether they are swimmers and sunbathers, shoppers or simply want to escape the cold. It makes a perfect travel destination at any time of year, but is Europe’s number one choice for summer breaks on the Costa Blanca. Benidorm has been welcoming visitors for many decades and knows exactly what they look for in a holiday.
