“A stunning beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Poniente beach was completely re-developed about three years ago. It's promenade is wide and colourful. The sea wall has been designed to represent huge waves crashing on the shore. Much less busy than Levante beach with 2km of golden sands. Plenty of room for all the family.

“Great place for a stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

I like Benidorm. I wouldn't want to stay there, but it's a great place to visit for a day. Both beaches are excellent and have very pleasant promenades.

It's a great place to go people-watching!

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Being in the Old Town area it is less commercialised and off the sea front has excellent shopping if you take the time to walk around.

Less crowded than Levante Beach. Good variety of cafes and bars. Lovely sandy beach and lovely walk to Cala.
