Visited this excellent viewpoint whilst in the Benidorm area. Well worth the walk for the views and photo opportunities both from the top and the small beach below. The stairs from the beach are quite steep and not really suitable for small children, best to approach from old town if with kids. On the Levante beach side be sure to... More

Visited whilst in Benidorm. Next to the old town. It was stunning and the views a cross Benidorm were fab. Made you realise how busy the beach is. Loads of small cafes

A really stunning Area, we visited here 3 mornings in a row for drinks in the restaurant in the square, so picturesque, great photos here, lovely when the guys were there piping the music. So relaxing here, gets busy as day goes on but a must see.

You have to visit here! It has a lovely traditional feel, white and blue tiles and stunning views! On a night when the lights are lit up all along the promenade, we could stay here for hours just enjoying the views and atmosphere. There are normally a few quaint little stalls just before entering the placa, lovely artwork and souveniers.... More

Situated at the top of Benidorm old town, this is a must visit spot with panoramic views along both beaches and the Isla Benidorm.

This is in itself just a place (nothing to do there) but the view is breathtaking. Great if you are looking for a "wow" effect or if you need a nice setting to take pictures. You can easily reach Placa del Castell walking through Benidorm's old town.
