What comes to mind when I say “sun holiday”? Lounging by the pool with a cocktail, quaint little restaurants in the old town, or walks on the beach at sunset? Whatever it is, you can find it in Benidorm. Though it has something of a reputation for expat bars, all day fry-ups and all-inclusive tower blocks, there’s something for everyone here, with some of the most luxurious hotels in the region. |
The stretch from Alicante Airport to Benidorm is one of the most beautiful coastal landscapes in the world, and once you’re there, the friendly locals will do their best to make every couple’s holiday special.
