Benidorm is well known as a holiday destination of choice, especially amongst the Brits. A favorite with both families and groups of friends on stag and hen parties, Benidorm manages to bridge the demographics with little trouble. But how, and why do people return here year after year and what is it that makes Benidorm such a great place to holiday?
Below are just THREE things that the region has to offer that keeps people coming back for more. On top of these 3 reasons, planning a trip to Benidorm, Spain with travel experts such as Direct Holidays can also turn out to be very cost efficient!
FIRST: There Are More Theme Parks Than You Can Fit Into One Holiday
Who doesn't love a good theme park? Some of my best childhood memories are of having a great time with my family at a theme park.
It's a good thing that there are more theme parks in Benidorm than you can fit in to one holiday. These parks are great for families, as kids may get bored of the pool and beach everyday. The young at heart too will have a fab time on the rides and slides or with the animals at one of the parks. Favourites are Aqualandia, Terra Natura and Terra Mitica.
SECOND: Going to a Seaside Resort and Spending No Time at the Beach is Just Silly!
As a Hawaii born island boy, beaches are my thing! Wherever I go, I almost always weigh the worth of a place by the beauty of its beaches. Apparently, Benidorm has more than enough to make a case.
Benidorm has three main beach areas, Levante, Poniente and Finestrat. The most British is Levante and this is the default destination of many tourists. Travelling to Finestrat however will allow you a quieter beach experience, whilst Poniente will show you how the Spanish do beaches. Go out of your comfort zone a little for the best experience by the waves.
THIRD: Retail Therapy is an Integral Part of Many Peoples Holiday!
Although it's not really my thing, shopping is usually on the top of the list for many people on vacation, and Benidorm is well known for satisfying that need.
When the holiday money you have saved starts to burn a hole in your pocket in Benidorm, head to the old town for the best shopping experience and largest range of shops. The whole city is full of great shops so you will not be disappointed.
Benidorm has everything you could need from a holiday destination, all within easy reach, and without a hefty price tag. The entertainment is plentiful and there are great restaurants, bars, activities and facilities to enjoy. Try Benidorm once and you’ll be returning for many years after.
