We all loved it up here, stopped at a cocktail bar where they gave us straws about three foot long that soon turned into swords. loved the fact it seemed to be the place to go for hen parties so it was all good to go. great drinks great fun, and even funnier seeing pavement artists making people look worse...

I have been to Benidorm many times and know the area so planned my proposal here. After a lovely meal at paneils we walked the old town leading up to this area. We had a few cocktails and checked out the little stalls, checking out the views and beautifully light streets. We ended up around la placa then we walked... More

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
