we strolled up there by accident and had a lovely surprise. the little area was very pretty and the views over the beaches, harbour and Benidorm island were lovely. we even saw a gull and her chick.

The approach is uphill to the Balcon del Mediterraneo but it is well worth the walk. The view is magnificent day and night. There are places to eat and drink and the beautiful Catholic church is situated here also.

If you are looking for culture this is the best you are gonna get, some nice restaurants on here but all the usual cheap food, but serve drink and is lovely in the sun with a great view of the sea.

This is in the middle of Benidorm by the old town, up a medium hill towards the sea. When you are there you can see all of benidorm. If you are lucky the sea fountain may be working. Worth a walk down the sea steps...More

So pretty and beautiful views! A must to visit in Benidorm. Easy to get to in the old town, make sure you walk down the steps at the other end of the castle.

Unless it's an electric wheelchair it would be a hard slog for the last 50 yards or so as the streets are quite steep from that point, plus the roads/pavements are not tarmac but it would be possible. If you used a taxi... More
