Benidorm Old Town and other places to stay
Benidorm is synonymous with the beach, holidays and summertime - hence why so many choose to book private apartments here. Located in Alicante, in the popularly known Costa Blanca, it enjoys proximity to the national parks of Sierra Helada, Sierra Cortina, Puig de Campana and Tossal de la Cala as a barrier, Benidorm is protected from the wind and cold coming from the north; hence, its weather conditions are perfect throughout the year. For this reason, in 1956, Benidorm started its "tourist boom", leaving behind its previous fishing village status. At that time Benidorm’s transformation began with the construction of the first holiday apartments of what is today the most important holiday destination in Spain. Can you believe that only in Manhattan are there a higher concentration of skyscrapers per square metre!

The Old Town is a wonderful collection of ‘ramblas’; small winding streets with bars, restaurants and shops for you to enjoy at night time. With some of the best vistas across the entire city, it’s no wonder it is a popular choice for self catering rentals.

It is laden with long, flat promenades and is one of the busiest areas in the summer months due to its water sport facilities such as jet skiing and scuba diving, alongside many bars.
- Poniente District: The second of Benidorm’s two large beaches. Just beyond the Old Town, it tends to be quieter and feels authentic and traditional. You will find lots of food facilities and entertainment venues here.
