The views from the Castell are breath-taking and the nearby Church, although we have never managed to actually get inside, is fantastic. This is myself and my Wife's favourite place, it is situated on the edge of the Old Town and looks out to the sea, we must check the History of this place because we believe it goes back... More

A great place to view the coastline and both of the Bays of Benidorm. If visiting off season I would suggest having a coat handy as it does get chilly mid afternoon. Well worth a short visit and with facilities for food and drink close by.

Great late afternoon watching the sun go down, nice view of the marina down below ,three bars up there ,food drink etc readily available, we were there in December, note of caution, late afternoon at that time of year, make sure you have a jacket with you, with the sea breeze it can get pretty nippy quite quickly!

This is located at left end of Poniente Beach facing the sea and right end of Levante Beach (again, facing the sea). It offers a view point of the sea and the city, not to mention a chance of seeing some rare birds diving for a catch and on good weathers - it offers a clear view of the water... More

We have done one review but as we were asked to do another, not a problem. We found the place to be clean and well kept and on the three occasions we had coffees and prices were good. Pam pipe music absolutely brilliant ( although a personal favourite) and not to everyone's taste were still great. Views were great and... More

If you go to the Placa del Castell you will have brilliant views of both the Benidorm beaches. You do need to climb up to the Placa, but it is not too high or steep. Nice cafes are nearby.

Went here after seeing it on the TV show Benidorm. Fantastic views of the whole of Benidorm but the whole place was a little grubby and in need of a wash and a lick of paint.

This is worth the walk, showing the whole view of both Levante and Poniente beaches. Often, film crews are around, and not just for Itv! Nice gin and tonic with a breeze and a view, is a favourite pastime for me in one of the cafes at the top.
