Cuidemos Calas y Playas - 7 Consejos

Benidorm is one of the most touristic towns in the province of Alicante. One of its biggest attractions is undoubtedly its beaches: Levante Beach and Poniente Beach, named after where the sun rises and sets and separated from each other by the Punta de Canfali, in the centre of Benidorm, where we find the Mirador de Punta de Canfali, also known as the Mediterranean Balcony and where we can enjoy beautiful views of the sea. Under this viewpoint, we will also find the Mal Pas Cove.

Levante Beach is one of the best known beaches in Europe. It is located next to the Rincón of Loix and borders on the north with the Sierra Helada of Punta Pinet and on the south side with Punta Canfali up to the centre of Benidorm. It is more than 2 kilometres long and has an average width of about 55 metres. This means that, despite the fact that the beach can be crowded from early morning, you should not have any problems finding space even if you arrive later.

The beaches of Benidorm point south. This is the explanation for its special microclimate with mild temperatures and that, unlike other Valencian coastal towns, it receives more hours of sunshine.

This urban beach, formed by an extension of fine golden sand and easy access by street, has a clear, shallow and relatively warm water, which makes it perfect for families with children. It is true that if we go out to sea we will find a rocky strip covered with algae/moss, which is easy to slip on. Despite this, there is no need to wear booties or similar footwear.

It has a multitude of SERVICES, among them:

- Showers, deckchair rental, access for people with reduced mobility, rescue service, children's play areas (also in the water, with floating platforms and slides)

- Rental of nautical equipment (jet skis, windsurfing, water skiing, wakeboarding, pedal boats, parasailing)

- Free parking is difficult to find in high season. For this reason Benidorm has a blue zone, although in the months of July and August, especially at weekends, it is more difficult to find space. As we move away from the beach, there is more possibility of parking.

The Levante beach does NOT have beach bars, but that is not a problem because this beach has a large promenade that runs along the entire length of the beach full of all kinds of restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors, cafes, pubs and shopping areas, as well as the most famous nightlife area.

In Levante you will find a greater concentration of hotels and apartments, from more to less affordable.

Without a doubt, it is a complete beach designed for the enjoyment of all types of users.
