Benidorm has two spectacular Blue Flag beaches - Levante and the more sedate Poniente, which is preferred by locals and families.
The Poniente Playa has just seen the opening of (August 2009) a new 13 million Euro promenade including a boardwalk at beach level and easier access for wheelchair users. In total there are 4kms of safe, sandy beach in Benidorm.
As a purpose built beach resort everything is geared toward fun and enjoyment there is therefore not much to see for those looking for culture. The surrounding towns and villages which are less than 20 minutes drive by car or 30 minutes by bus are well worth exploring for anyone looking for "Real Spain". In Benidorm the old town does still retain some of the quaint past when the town was a small village. Head for the old town Church where you will find the most interesting part of the town.
