Villas in Benidorm - Things to do
Our villas in Benidorm are a quick ten minute taxi ride to the city centre. Once you arrive in the centre, don’t miss out on these sights!
Start out your day exploring the city’s massive skyscrapers. There are over three hundred skyscrapers to explore. In the 1950s, the mayor of Benidorm decided he wanted to hoteliers to build upwards rather than outwards, so every visitor could enjoy the beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea. Known as the Dubai of the Mediterranean and also as Little Manhattan, these high rise buildings keep everything in close proximity and can host over 500,000 tourists at any time.
The city also has great shopping areas. Go bargain hunting at the Benidorm Outdoor Market, on Wednesdays and Sundays. Local vendors set up tents showcasing their wares. They range from leather fashion goods and accessories, novelty items and knick-knacks of all sorts, household items, and food.
Although some items bear price tags, most don’t, so you can – and should – always try to bargain hard for better prices. There are regularly opened cafés along the opposite side of the highway, where you people-watch over a coffee or beer.
Wondering what to do in the evenings? Our villas in Benidorm are very close to the city’s thriving night life. Bars and clubs are abundant and lively, and each venue offers something different. Live bands playing classic rock and Top 40 songs, late-night dance clubs, and laidback bars that simply focus on drinks with terraces to take in the views over the promenade.
One of the best streets to find an eclectic mix is Calle Gerona. It’s where bar and pub crawls are common. There are plenty of stops in between for fun and games, and even foam parties.
