You must know about Benidorm. Benidorm located on the northern Costa Blanca Benidorm within sixty minutes by car from two airports is the most famous seaside resort on the Costa Blanca. A two hour flight from most U.K. airports you can pick either Alicante or Valencia airports to fly into. For even a better deal there are cheaper flights available to Murcia which will add another forty five minute driving time to your journey.
Unless you have booked a package holiday to Benidorm you will be stuck if you have not hired a car. On the Costa Blanca at present there are no trains or buses going from the airports to Benidorm so hiring a car will be your best option.
Benidorm has two fabulous mile long golden sandy beaches called Playa Poniente and Playa Levante. Across the Bay you can see Peacock Island made famous by the TV series Benidorm. The promenade has a lot of typically English pubs and bars and restaurants and cafes as well as good Spanish food too. Try the Buffet Libre for a Spanish buffet.
Benidorm is home to four major theme parks which unless you have hired a car you will be unable to visit. Terra Mitica and Terra Natura are located on the hillside of Benidorm a ten minute drive from downtown Benidorm, you can be bused in but the buses run infrequently and you are sure to want to stay in the parks until they close.
Terra Mitica is an ancient world themed park with rides and roller coasters as well as live entertainment while its sister park is a zoo with animals living in their natural habitats also having live entertainment. For those of you who would like to cool off Terra Natura has a water park on the premises called Aqua Natura where for 6 extra you can enjoy the rides and flumes.
Mundomar and Aqualandia are located on the western side of the resort. They literally are next door to each other and you use the same car park for both theme parks. Mundomar is similar to Sea World with dolphin shows, parrot shows and sea lion shows as well as exotic birds and aquatic animals, while Aqualandia is a water wonderland with rides and flumes of varying heights. Small children have to reach the height of 125 centimetres to be able to go on some of the flumes. The food available at the cafeteria in Aqualandia is of very high quality so enjoy!
Whatever you decide to do, getting Benidorm car hire would make you have the most from your vacation in Benidorm.
Another must in Benidorm is to enjoy the entertainment on offer. Benidorm is known as the party capital with many live acts, impersonators and bands doing the rounds at the various night clubs. For a more upmarket evening you can book a table at the Benidorm Palace and enjoy dinner.
