I was recently asked by Hype Magazine – the international travel blog of UK-based Holiday Hypermarket – to share some insider knowledge on visiting Benidorm. (Could this be my favourite city in Spain?) Just a quick call and a rave about this corner of Costa Blanca later, I imparted my top tips on what to see, eat, do and experience on a trip to this diverse city in Spain. (They had a tough job getting this cut down!)




It was a fun way to reminisce on visiting a place that happily surprised me on my visit and to hopefully give insider advice to others planning a visit to Benidorm. You can read the full interview on Hype Mag’s site, but I’ve also included an excerpt from the interview below with my tips on the best activities and things to do during a visit:

Benidorm is all about its water activities, are there any options that are worth looking out for?

Aqualandia is a fantastic water theme park full of daring water slides, relaxing pools and water obstacle courses. If you’re looking for a more relaxing experience, be the captain of your boat, which you hire from Benidorm Marine and Diving Stones club and sail in Spanish waters. You can even visit Benidorm Island to snorkel the sea bed around it too.




When they aren’t basking in the sun on the beaches, what are three things that people should make sure they do during their time in Benidorm?

Tough question to narrow down to three! But I’ve made my decision!

  1. Terra Mitica Theme Park – an ancient multicultural theme park that combines history with thrill-seeking rides
  2. Eat as much yummy Spanish food as possible!
  3. Undertake water sports – after all, you’ve got the gorgeous playground that is the Mediterranean!
