“Worth the visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Lovely location with excellent backdrop for photo opportunity's. Steep steps to be climbed but worth it. Equally impressive at night when lit up.

“Great views, very hilly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Been there loads of times, mostly to the little beach. The sea is not rocky like the other beaches, and the sea is warm. The downside, it gets very busy quite quickly with locals who seem to be constantly on holiday. There are a few bars up the balcon which are bit more expensive than the ones in the old and new town, but few beers later and some shade you don't care. If you are staying in the old town its perfect, but like my family' who stayed in the new town you will find quite a trek and hilly too. That aside it was worth the walk

“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This a lovely point to view Benidorm, particularly in the evening. Of course it is free and there are nice places to have a drink afterwards.

“Stunning views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

I would thoroughly recommend a visit to the Balcon de Mediterraneo during your time in Benidorm. Located in the old town, it gives incredible views over both Levante and Poniente beaches and out over the sea itself.

Ultimately, the views are somewhat spoilt by the high rise buildings of Benidorm, but they also are interesting to see.

I imagine that the Balcon would be incredibly romantic in the evenings, but as I visited in the middle of the day, I can't say I experienced it myself!
