Quite pleasant. Nice views across Levante beach and Poniante beach the other side. Narrow cobbled streets with few bars/restaurants

Go here and you can get a photo with the Poniente Beach (old town) in the background, swap places with the photographer and you get a photo with the Levante Beach (new town) in the background, SIMPLES!! If you are unfit and do not have a 'chariot' then i wouldn't advise a visit as it is uphill all the way.... More

We walked up to the church then walked out on to the balcon which reaches out into the sea. Quite windy, but lovely atmosphere and views all round both bays. Usually someone playing a guitar which adds to the atmosphere. There is a small cafe where you can have a drink before heading back down into the old town.

The new town in Benidorm can be a bit brash so you'd be forgiven if you thought you were in a different place when you visit the old town and go to the headland. The Balcon de Meditterraneo is at the bottom of some steep steps so be careful as some of them are broken or uneven. The views from... More

We walked down to this lovely spot on our family trip. We managed to get down here where we reminisced about previous trips. It wasn't too crowded so was able to get a good spot and take pictures of the view. All to soon we had to leave the calm and return to the hustle and bustle.
