Take the steps down from the Playa del Castell and find yourself surrounded by the Mediteranean. Offers great views and nearness to the water. Afterwards you can get your grips back in a nearby café.

Prettiest place in Benidorm, right off the Plaza del Castellar in the old town. Don't miss this. The views are fantastic and the whole area is the best part of the town.
