Destination guide

Idle sands are your own private workshop in Benidorm

You may as well set your email out-of-office message now, because we can guarantee you won't be thinking about it once you get to Benidorm. A bustling seaside destination, Benidorm's part of Alicante's noted Costa Blanca region, a 120-mile stretch of shoreline along Spain's Mediterranean coast. Summer sun-seekers flock to the city's 2 wide, sandy beaches, and you'll also find plenty of vibrant bars and tasty seafood restaurants in this former fishing village. With a Benidorm vacation rental, you'll be right at the heart of the action without having to leave your own little world.

Activities

Love the playas and love the games in Benidorm

1—or actually 2—of Benidorm's biggest draws are its broad, gold-sand beaches along the Mediterranean Sea. The 2 beaches, Poniente and Levante, feature ample space to soak up that Spanish sun, and you'll also find areas for beach volleyball and other waterfront activities. Camping and fishing are also popular pastimes, but if you need to dive to thrive, the calm waters of the Mediterranean are right there. Back in town, you'll find plenty of bars and restaurants, and you can pick up local wares and top fashions at the many boutiques in Old Town Benidorm.

Weather

The rain in Spain falls mainly… somewhere else

Benidorm has a hot semi-arid climate, which means dry, toasty summers, warm-to-mild winters, and limited rainfall throughout the year. Summer highs average in the upper 80s in July and August, while the milder winters tend to peak in the low 60s between December and February. A popular vacation destination throughout Europe, you'll find that rates tend to be at their highest during the summer, and you'll be most likely to score a killer deal on a Benidorm vacation rental if you wait until the cooler winter months.

Natural features

This sand is your sand, this sand is my sand

Benidorm takes a 2-pronged approach to the vacation lifestyle, and it's equally known for its broad, sandy beaches and its lively, urban downtown. The 2 beaches offer plenty of space for seaside activities of all sorts, and they're separated by a rocky escarpment that borders the sea. About 2 miles off the coast lies Benidorm Island, a small islet with a nature preserve that's home to a thriving population of wild peacocks. Fishing is popular, too, and species in the area include barbel, carp, and bass.
