Despite the large number of tourists visiting these holiday cities in the Spanish Levante, year after year and since two decades, the most important beaches in Benidorm renew its European quality certification, the called Blue Flag, that honours the beaches for the quality of their waters, their cleanness and the variety of their services and accesibility.
In the case of Benidorm, its two most famous beaches –Poniente beach and Levante beach- have a guaranteed distinction: they are long sand areas with all types of comforts, located right in the built-up area, surrounded by a big promenade, offering security service, medical attention, bars, restaurants, facilities and sport schools, properly signposted leisure areas… Everything, preserving at the same time an excellent water quality, even during the high season months.
Levante beach, with more than 2km, gives life to one of the areas where are placed most of the hotels and apartments in Benidorm. Restaurants are next to the lively promenade where you can enjoy a drink in a terrace, there are also perfectly equipped playgrounds for children. The beach also includes service of hammocks and parasols rent, beach library, showers, toilets and beach walkways.
The Poniente beach -twin of the previous one, but more extensive and wider- has a promenade that stands out for its colourful atmosphere and its playgrounds, ideal for children. It has the same services as Levante and, in its surroundings, stand the most significant hotels in Benidorm, such as the Gran Hotel Bali, the highest in Europe.
Mal Pas cove is a small beach with 120 metres of fine sand, and some rocky areas. It is more distant from the urban centre than Levante and Poniente and, therefore, it is a most charming beach. It offers hammocks and parasol services, security and comfortable accesses.
