Fantastic little park at the top - followed by some steep steps to a viewpoint over the rocks. Not really suitable for those incapable of such steps. Could do with being advertised better and having something at the top for the tourists.

Situated on a cliff top in between Poniente beach and Levante beach the Placa del Castell is a nice area to have a stroll, have a meal or people watch. There are artists there who will do a portrait for you or even a caricature. Whilst we were there a wedding took place.

Up quite a steep hill but well worth the walk through the little maze of streets to get there. The views are amazing at any time but the place itself lights up at night with all sorts of stalls, musicians, artisans and artists of all kinds. Great place to sit with a cold drink and just take in the atmosphere.... More

"Placa".....my opinion is it is a placid place to visit and a definite place to visit on your visit to Benidorm,the views are spectacular we call it "the peak" the point that divides the Levante beach and the Poienita beach ...spelling wrong on that but its the new dividing the old and quite part for travelers that a lot will...
