This is a beautiful spot to visit! The views across Benidorm new town, old town and out to sea are spectacular and this makes for a great place to take some holiday snaps! I would recommend a visit here if you are near by or visiting old town! There are a lot of steps to get up and down here... More

Either a mooch around in the day or a lovely evening stroll when the Placa comes alive with quaint market stalls & artists, whatever time you visit you will enjoy your time here

The view from Placa del castell is wonderful as you can see the benidorm strip, the mountains in behind as well as Peacock island. When I was here there was also a lovely atmosphere as a couple of men were playing panpipes. A great place to have a glass of sangria (even if it is a bit more expensive on... More

While I am not crazy about Benidorm, I love the Placa del Castell because of its location; there are stunning views so is the ideal place to take pictures; there are places to sit and watch the world go by & enjoy the atmosphere to the sound of one of the musicians playing lovely background music.

Easily the best part of Benidorm and a welcome escape from the high rises and general craziness of the new part! It is quite a hike to get to either up steps or a steep road but the views are terrific and we whiled away many an hour in the cafe people watching!

Wonderful views from here over the sea, with live pan pipes played. A very memorable couple of visits here. I would definitely come here again, but next time would stay in the old town. The new part had no appeal to me.
