Benidorm is the most popular tourist destination in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona. In Belgium and the Netherlands, Benidorm is best known as a wintering place for the elderly. Dutch, Belgian and British pensioners in particular spend the winter here. In contrast, in the summer Benidorm is a popular holiday destination for families and young people who come to enjoy the nightlife. Benidorm has the largest number of hotel beds in Europe after Paris. Due to the large number of hotels and apartments, Benidorm has the largest number of tall buildings by population in the world: on average there is a building of 35 meters or higher for every 180 inhabitants. Due to these tall buildings and the fact that Benidorm never sleeps in the summer, the city is sometimes called Beniyork.
Fine golden sand, transparent waters and beaches that are clean and well-kept all year round are a trademark of the Benidorm coast. At the northern end, two small bays of sand and rock are great for diving and for those who like to swim alone, the Bay of Tio Ximo and the Bay of Almadrava.
Further afield starts the bustling boulevard of the popular and busy Levante beach, which, in addition to the many facilities on offer, also has the extra attraction to be lively all year round.
South of the harbor, the magnificent Poniente beach, competes in beauty and facilities and both have in common that they have south orientation, so in the winter the sun shines all day until sunset and in the summer until after eight. Between them, in the old town and under the shelter of the Canfali hill, is the small bay Mal Pas Beach and opposite the island of Benidorm, a paradise for divers.
