Beautiful views and church.

This is a must at dusk. You can look back at Benidorm and see the lights and the sun setting. Be sure to go in the church - stunning.

Every time we visit Benidorm, our holiday would not be complete without a stroll up to the Placa del Castell. Sit and people-watch while listening to the musicians in beautiful surroundings.Bliss.

Great views of both beaches. On a hot day there is usually a cool breeze and always a terrace where you can have a cold drink.

Spent an hour, loved it. Views were stunning. Sketch artists drew my sons sketches, cost £20 for the 2 of them. Good place to spend 20 - 30mins. Thereafter around 200 steps down to the beach and Marina.

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
