Monuments in Benidorm

Do you love taking excursions to monuments while you are on holiday? Then you may consider visiting Benidorm, a city steeped in rich history with various ancient ruins to be visited. Benidorm is a leading town in the world of tourism and leisure and has been for several decades. This is due in part to the wide range of attractions in the area.

Most cultural landmarks and sights that you can admire while walking around are of historical significance. If you are a fan of the olden days, be sure to check out the following monuments and grab the chance to dive into some Spanish history.
Old town benidorm

Benidorm Old Town

The old town lies between the Levante and Poniente beaches, and along the streets in this part of town you can see various remnants of the city's past. The whitewashed buildings have wrought-iron balconies, and there are tiny alleys and streets with arches. This is the perfect setting to wander around for an afternoon and enjoy the charm of the old town. Compared to other popular areas in Benidorm, you get to enjoy a remarkable change in scenery, as this part of town features streets, buildings, and houses with ancient architectural designs reminiscent of the traditional Spanish times. As this was initially a fishing village before growing into a city, you see some antique cannons scattered around. While you are here, be sure to visit the La Señoría square, the seamen and Calle Condestable Zaragoza which pays tribute to the local heroes. You will undoubtedly enjoy the ambience of the old town buildings and appreciate the architectural techniques.
Benidorm towers of Cavall peak and morales

Cavall Peak and Morales towers

Cavall peak and Morales towers are the perfect place to visit if you are interested in seeing several remains of ancient times in Benidorm, especially on a sunny day. The 16th-century watchtower remains are cultural assets tucked away near the Sierra Helada mountains. The sentries used these towers to scan the entire horizon and keep a lookout for Algerian pirates to give early warning of any suspected raids. It served as a defence against incursions. Torre de la Escaleta is another historical monument based in Punta Del Cavall in Sierra Helada Park. It acted as a watchtower in the 16th century to spot the Berber pirates as they approached the area.
Benidorm church San Jaime

San Jaime Church

Iglesia de Sant Jaime is a well maintained 18th-century parish church distinguished by its unique architectural shape, skilful design, and a perfect selection of ancient icons and artefacts for decorations. It was built between 1740 and 1780 to pay homage to the patron saint of Benidorm. It is at the very top of the old town on the Canfali hill; it appears with a distinctive blue roof and inspires a great appreciation for the arts and religion. When you enter the structure, you will find a symbol strongly linked to the native believers; the Virgen Del Sufragio, a wooden statue of a beloved patron in Benidorm. The legend goes that this statue was found adrift in a boat in the middle of the ocean. The well-preserved and restored Catholic Church still holds mass regularly and represents Spanish history. Every year, the town has festivals to celebrate Saint James and reenact the discovery of this carved out wooden image. This impressive monument is definitely worth a visit.
Town hall Benidorm

Benidorm Town Hall

At the entrance of the L'Aiguera Park, you will view a spectacular monument, the town hall colloquially known as the "floor scraper". It acts as a bridge or a doorway to the park, supported by four pillars and is cantilevered so you can walk underneath it. It also features glass facades with thick slats that show numerous names of Benidorm inhabitants who were present during the year the construction was completed. This unusual structure is a fascinating architectural gem.
Benidorm la cruz

La Cruz de Benidorm

The Benidorm cross is a historical monument and a religious symbol, located at the top of Serra Gelada hill. If you like to take morning hikes this destination is for you; enjoy your walk, La Cruz and the gorgeous views. The cross symbolizes the 1961 religious mission to carry a wooden cross across the town in an attempt to redeem the people from their rampant sins. In 1975, a storm blew away the original cross. It has since been replaced with a permanent monument. Panoramic views surround the large concrete cross. It's a 45-minute hike through pretty exposed landscape to reach the cross, but the toil is worthwhile. Your hard work will add to your sense of gratification when you get to the top to overlook the entire city, beaches, and the expansive sea. You might take a moment to contemplate religion and the landscapes, and don't forget to take some photos to remember this special outing.
Benidorm tossal de la cala

Tossal de la Cala

This late Iberian settlement gives insight into the economic activities that made the region a crucial commercial exchange centre in the area. A hike towards the Tossal de la Cala viewpoint offers one of the best views of the Mediterranean Sea and Benidorm city, and you can view the remains of the Iberia settlements. Tossal de la Cala is famous for the Roman outpost and for several other ruins where you can catch spectacular sunsets. On the site, you will find many artefacts and fragments, which represent different eras. Some archaeological remains on the hillside even date back to the 4th century BC of the Iberian age, including traces of early human inhabitants.
Benidorm torre de les caletes

Torre de Les Caletes

Once stood as a watchtower to guard the coastal area against corsairs' attackers from North Africa, this monument got ruined during the Napoleon war. Since then, it has been restored with a protective mesh to avoid further deterioration, and it now firmly stands on the 62-metre high cliff. As you stroll to the tower, you will enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the seafront and the spectacular cliffs.
Benidorm Mirador castel

Mirador del Castell

The Mirador del Castell fortress provides a scenic view of both the city of Benidorm and the Mediterranean Sea. It is built on the rocky remains of a fortress castle and is the perfect spot for ocean observation. If you are visiting with friends and family, be sure to take a seat at one of the benches on the deck to enjoy the company and the fresh sea breeze. Visit the restaurant here to replenish with a drink or to grab a Mediterranean meal.
Benidorm mediteranean balcony

The Balcony of the Mediterranean

The Balcón del Mediterráneo preserves the ruins of a fortress dating back to the 14th century. It initially acted as a defence area to protect the people from the Algerian Pirate raids during the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. The old castle lies on a rocky divide. It provides sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea and the surrounding sandy beaches. The remains of the walls that you see were abandoned in the 1500s. Recently the balcony has been decorated with bluish tiles, which really makes it pop. This is the perfect background for lovely photos, especially when it is bathed in sunlight. At the highest point, there are several benches where you can sit and relax; but you can also go to the lower section to gaze at the water. The entire area is tranquil and serene. This spectacular monument with a pentagonal balcony is an excellent viewpoint where you can enjoy brilliant sceneries as you take a seat beneath the lampposts to enjoy the Mediterranean breeze. Whether it is day or night, this unique landmark is a must-see attraction.
Benidorm cultural center martime

Maritime Cultural Centre

You can also head for the Maritime cultural centre located near the harbour on Paseo de Colón. Unlike many other attractions in Benidorm, entrance is free. The monument is a small house that acts as a permanent exposition for models of ships and other marine exhibits, such as knots, fishing boats, and anchors. You will also see various photographs of the great maritime ventures in the ancient times taken by original seamen from Benidorm. The monument was established as a perpetual reminder of all the accomplishments associated with the local seamen. Have a look at various fascinating exhibitions depicting different aspects of the fishing era in Benidorm. Celebrate the city's nautical heritage by exploring different types of naval objects ranging from sailing-themed paintings to wooden ship models.
Benidorm plaza e toros

Plaza de Toros

Bullfighting has played an essential part in Spanish culture since 1962. If you are a fan of this sport, then this monument is worthwhile. It features neoclassical structures and a multi-levelled exterior lined with brick arches. The circular sand-filled arena in the middle represents quintessential Spanish bullfighting. You will get a chance to learn more about the bullfighting tradition in the museum that is located here. You can even get an opportunity to view various bullfights sports held every year, especially during the fiesta time for amateur bullfights. This will help you discover the spirit and culture of Spain. The monument is in the middle of the city and still looks massive despite being wedged among other large buildings. Most of the bullfights take place in March during the Fallas week or the July Fair. If you intend to watch a bullfight, make sure that you get a seat in the semi-shaded or shaded area for a better experience.
Benidorm Aiguera park

Aigüera Park

Aigüera Park is a large recreational park, designed in a neoclassical style, situated next to the city hall. It separates the new buildings in Benidorm from the old quarter. It extends as far as Plaza de Toros, where you find the bullfighting museum along with the local music conservatory. There is also an auditorium dedicated to Julio Iglesias, the famous Spanish singer. He started his career in Benidorm after winning in a local festival. It's the ideal place to take a stroll, bike, walk or relax in the extensive green areas. There is a children's play area, and there are two amphitheatres that host concerts, theatre and live performances during the summer.

Weather in Benidorm

Weather in Benidorm

Benidorm is an excellent place to vacation or to pass a few months a year, not in the least because of the weather. If you live in Northern Europe, we can summarize Benidorm's weather in one word: glorious. The city boasts a Mediterranean climate, which means hot summers and mild winters. The mild winters could easily pass for summer in some parts of Europe. August is the warmest month in Benidorm with an average daytime maximum temperature of 33°C. The night-time low is a balmy 21°C. The sea temperature in August is an unbelievable 25°C, and the city enjoys 10 hours of sunshine every day. July might see a one or two-degree drop in both maximum and minimum temperatures, but the water temperature stays around 25°C. In July you will enjoy an average of not 10, but 12 hours of sunshine every day. June is another great month to visit. The maximum daily temperature is a very enjoyable 29°C, and the night-time low is about 19°C. The average seawater temperature lies around 22°C. In June you will enjoy the same amount of sunshine as in August: 10 hours a day. If you are used to Northern European weather, the climate in Benidorm from September to November is going to sweep you off your feet. The maximum daytime temperature hardly ever drops below 20°C. In fact, in September daytime temperatures can still reach 31°C; this gradually drops to 22°C in November. The average hours of sunshine during September, October, and November are 9, 8, and 7, respectively. The water temperature varies from a lovely 25°C in September to a quite respectable 19°C in November. Finally, what about December to February? You might be surprised to hear that even during winter the maximum daytime temperature is as high as 22°C (November), and on average around 19°C. Night-time temperatures never drop below 9°C and can be as high as 13°C in November. And you will still have an average of 6 hours of sunshine a day!
Festival Las Fallas in Benidorm

The Fallas Festival in Benidorm

Celebrated every year on the same date, from the 15th to the 19th of March, the ‘Fiestas de Fallas’ is a traditional festival that takes place in Benidorm. It’s one of the most exciting and colourful events in Benidorm and it attracts visitors from far and wide. Dating back to the 1800s, the festival welcomes spring and celebrates the feast of Saint Joseph the carpenter (San José). It’s believed that the festival first began when local carpenters competed to create bigger and better effigies in the form of St Joseph. Today, different neighborhoods of Benidorm each contribute an elaborate effigy, all of which are burnt to the ground on the 19th of March. In the days leading up to that grand finale, visitors can view these incredible monuments, made out of wood and cardboard that have taken months to construct. Live music, parades and food stalls create a carnival-like atmosphere in the days leading up to the ‘cremà’ on the last night. Flowers are featured heavily in this festival, with the perfume of the floral decorations filling the air and the colors brightening the mood. Every day there are impressive firework displays. The Fallas Festival is a lively event considered so important to the region that it was awarded UNESCO Intangible Heritage status in 2016.
Festival in Benidorm the discovery of the virgen of suffrage

The Discovery of the Virgin of Suffrage

The ‘Fiestas en Honor a La Virgen del Sufragio’ celebrate the patron saint of Benidorm. The legend goes that in March of 1740, an unknown and crewless ship was spotted afloat at sea. Fearing that the vessel was infected by the plague, the town-folk burnt the ship on the shore. Amongst the remaining ashes, an untouched image of the Virgin was discovered. The carving was taken to the church and a small chapel was built in honour of the Virgin. In November, a re-enactment of the discovery of the Virgin of Suffrage is performed on Poniente beach. This dramatization is part of a 6-day festival celebrating Benidorm’s patron saint. There is also a flower offering to the Virgin which includes a pilgrimage to San Jaime square. Several days of the festival, parades with floats work their way through the streets. Local people dressed in elaborate costumes dance along with the floats. Prizes are awarded to the best floats in the parades, so the standard is very high. Live music, fairground rides, fire crackers and fireworks are part of this huge event too. Local people and thousands of visitors enjoy the lively atmosphere of this Benidorm Festival.
holiday holy week in Benidorm

Holy Week

Holy week or Easter Week is at least as important to the Spanish as Christmas is. Workers often take the whole week off and many return home to spend time with their families. ‘Semana Santa’, as it is called in Spain, is celebrated throughout the whole country from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. During Holy Week, religious statues are taken from the local churches and carried through the streets of the town. To be chosen as a member of the group that carries the statues is considered to be a great honour. In Benidorm, the most important procession takes place on Good Friday. The Vía Crucis, or the Stations of the Cross, leave from San Jaime Church and end in a sermon at the Old Cemetery. Another important procession happens on Thursday; it departs from and ends at the San Juan Bautista Church and it takes place at night. On Sunday, the statue of the patron Saint of Benidorm, Virgin del Suffrage, is carried through the streets. A sweetbread that is traditionally eaten at Easter in Benidorm is the Mona de Pascua. These pastries have a hard-boiled egg on top. Sprinkled with sugar, these eggs are sometimes coated in colourful toppings. Traditionally god parents give these to their god children at Easter time.
Festival corpus christi pilgrimage in Benidorm

Corpus Christi Pilgrimage

The Corpus Christi Pilgrimage is an Andalusian tradition that celebrates the presence of Christ in the holy water. This religious Catholic festival has its roots in Granada, but the Andalusian people who live in Benidorm today celebrate this festival, which lasts a total of 5 days. The highlight of the festival is when the statue of the Virgin of El Rocio is carried to the Nuestra Señora de la Almudena church accompanied by pilgrims and musicians. A solemn mass is an important part of the celebrations. The occasion has developed into a lively festival held in most parts of Andalucía and Benidorm. During the event, known in Spanish as the ‘Romería del Corpus festival’, many concerts and musical events can be enjoyed in the large marquees that are set up in the town. The performances are influenced by the music and dance from Seville. Sherry is the traditional drink of this festival, and there are bars and kiosks selling the tipple everywhere. The Corpus Christi Pilgrimage in Benidorm takes place yearly, in June, although the timing could change depending on the dates of Easter.
Benidorm bonfires festival San Juan

Bonfires of San Juan in Benidorm

The beginning of summer is a day that is acknowledged all over the world, but in Benidorm, it is celebrated with a huge festival of fire. Every year on the 23rd and 24th of June, people from all over the Alicante region head to the nearest beach to mark Midsummer with a festival called Las Hogueras de San Juan. The official beginning of summer coincides with the feast of St John and has developed over the centuries into a celebration that lasts several days. This festival begins with a parade where local people dressed in costume walk through the town. Fireworks are also set off in celebration to mark the occasion in deafening style. Large bonfires light up along the whole stretch of the beach with thousands of people arriving to enjoy the fun. Effigies are sometimes thrown on the flames to demonstrate the end of old emotions to make way for new feelings. There is a party atmosphere and many people stay up all night dancing, singing and talking. Others simply sleep on the beaches in the firelight. Markets, fairground rides and stalls are created in Benidorm especially for the festival selling food, drinks and trinkets.
Britishe Festival in Benidorm Fancy dress party

British Fancy Dress Party

The Benidorm Festival takes place annually, in November, and the last day always falls on a Wednesday. The British Fancy Dress Party starts when the official festival ends – with a huge party on that Thursday. This unofficial event, known locally as ‘la fiesta “no oficial” de disfraces de los Británicos’, first began around 25 years ago when a local bar manager offered free drinks to anyone who turned up wearing fancy dress. The event has grown each year and today, thousands of people come to Benidorm in costume to join in on the international celebration. This fancy dress party takes place in the British area of Benidorm from the Calle Gerona to Rincon de Loix. Many of the hotels of Benidorm take part in this light-hearted festival by entering a float in the parade. Guests staying at the hotels are encouraged to put on a costume and enjoy the festival. There isn’t a particular theme to the occasion; those who go along wear anything from simple shop-bought costumes to elaborate hand-made creations. Balloons and flags of Great-Britain decorate the streets creating a carnival atmosphere and the bars are open selling alcoholic drinks.
Carnaval party in Benidorm

Carnival

Taking place at the end of February or beginning of March, ‘Carnaval’ always begins on the Saturday after Ash Wednesday. This is one of Benidorm’s biggest events and large crowds arrive in the town to enjoy the lively event. It’s a 4-day festival that was originally meant to mark the end of winter and the start of Spring; nowadays it is mostly known as the celebration before the start of lent. The festivities begin on Saturday morning with a children’s parade. All the youngsters in costume are treated to a feast at the end of the parade. An adult’s fancy dress parade is held late in the evening on Saturday with music and colourful decorations providing a magical atmosphere. Other smaller parades take place over the next few days with street concerts and dances being performed in the Old Town. The Old Town gets very busy during the festival and the area has a party feel every day. The Benidorm Carnival closes on the Tuesday evening with a ceremony known as the burial of the sardine. A funeral parade is led through the streets by a large symbolic fish that is transported by horse and carriage. The parade ends when the sardine is set on fire. A fireworks display follows along with a huge party.

Attractions in the Benidorm Area

In the greater area of Benidorm there are four large amusement parks; each one is different and offers something fun and exciting for the family to do. There are animal parks, water parks and theme parks with attractions for every age group – ideal for a day away from the beach. The amusement parks usually have a pricey entrance fee, especially if you have a larger family to pay for, but look out for special offers and discounts advertised on flyers. Leaflets can be found in some supermarkets and drug stores, and in the summer there are young adults on rollerblades handing out discount vouchers in the streets of Benidorm.


If you love a theme park and are likely to go back multiple times, look at buying a season ticket. Usually the membership price is the same as 2.5 daily tickets, so you’ll get your money’s worth after the third visit. All of the amusement parks near Benidorm are easy to get to using the urban bus routes. For all the information you need, check our ‘Transport’ tab. It’ll help you get from A to B smoothly and quickly. For more suggestions for days out, take a look at our ‘Things to do in Benidorm’ tab.

Terra Mitica

Ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt provide the three backdrops that make up Terra Mitica theme park. Seven different thrill-seeking rollercoasters with names like Flight of the Phoenix get the adrenalin pumping. For little ones, there’s an area with gentle roundabouts and toddler-friendly rides. There’s also a waterpark called the River Nile area with waterslides for smaller kids and whirlpools for the grown-ups. A schedule of shows keeps the fun going all day, with things like a circus, tournaments and a Spartacus act.


Shops around the theme park sell souvenirs and sweets. Inside Terra Mitica there are four different eateries with plenty of variety (hot dogs, pizza and ice cream), but the food isn’t that great and it’s expensive. So our tip is to take your own picnic, drinks and snacks.

Mid May until November.

Benidorm Bays and Beaches

Beaches and Bays

Fine golden sand, clear water and clean and well-maintained beaches all year round are the hallmarks of the coast of Benidorm. On the far north of Benidorm, there are two small sandy and rocky bays; the bay of La Almadrava and the bay of Tio Ximo, both very suitable for diving and swimming. Further south is where the busy seafront and the popular Levante beach starts, which, in addition to the complete services offered, is lively all year round. South of the port lies Poniente beach, a beach that can rival Levante in terms of beauty and services.


All the Benidorm beaches have one thing in common; the wonderful Spanish sun warms the sand and the soul. The sun shines on them until around 5.30pm in the winter and until after 8pm in the summer. Between the two beaches, in the area connected to the old town, sheltered by the Canfali hill, you can find the small bay of Mal Pas. Out in front of Mal Pas lies the Island of Benidorm; a true diving enthusiast's paradise. Read about some of the beautiful beaches and bays Benidorm has to offer in more detail below.
Benidorm poniente beach

Poniente beach

This pearl of the Mediterranean is the most extensive beach in the municipality; Poniente beach is more than 3 km long, which makes it the ideal place to take a nice long walk along the shore. Even though this is a popular beach, it does not get as crowded as Levante. The tourists who visit Poniente are mostly national visitors, from other parts of Spain. This true city beach borders a seafront promenade with numerous restaurants and bars that are very popular with tourists.


Poniente beach offers an extensive range of services and leisure facilities; there are floating platforms, children's play equipment, fun and sports activities, shaded areas for reading and beach entrances that are accessible for the disabled. There are also numerous places to rinse the sand off of your feet, lifeguards to keep you safe, flags that indicate whether it is safe to go swimming, and even ecological toilets. If you happen to be looking for a beach library, you can find that here too. So, pack your swimsuit, a towel and your favourite book and hang out here for a day (or two). If you are visiting with children (of any age), you need not worry they might get bored; just install yourself close to one of the playgrounds or sporting areas.
Benidorm levante beach

Beach of Levante

This is probably one of the most famous beaches in all of Europe. It is a city beach that is more than 2 kilometres long, located between Punta Pinet and Punta Canfali. Levante beach has fine, golden sand, and it is positioned just so that the sun hits it all afternoon; it is a sunbathers’ paradise. But this Beach is not only beautiful, golden and vast; it is also extremely fun and lively! The promenade, the perfect place to show off your newly acquired tan, is filled with fun bars, cafés and great restaurants. People flock to all this gorgeous city beach has to offer, so don’t be surprised to meet people from all over the world here.


The beach is well watched over by lifeguards, and there are flags indicating whether or not it is safe to swim. Don’t be shy in summer, when the water is nice and warm to take a dip in the calm waters of the Mediterranean. There are areas with sun loungers for rent, or you can throw down your towel in the sand and rent a parasol. There are multiple places to rinse the sand off of your feet, and if you want to make sure your kids enjoy the beach as much as you do, visit one of the six different playgrounds.
Benidorm bay of almadrava

Small bay of Almadrava

The small, pittoresque cove of Almadrava is no more than 100 meters long. The bay is formed by fine sand and rocks, and located at the foot of the Sierra Helada Mountains. This cove is usually tranquil, so if you are looking to avoid the crowded beaches of Poniente and Levante in high season, this is the place for you. Here, you will feel surrounded by nature and almost forget that you are so very close to bustling Benidorm. This is an excellent place to swim, snorkel, dive, kayak, paddle board or all of the above. The water is usually calm and clear and the rocky bottom of the bay is the habitat of many different kinds of fish and other sea creatures. This might be a small cove, but there is still a lifeguard on duty for safety.


Do keep in mind that the access road to Almadrava Cove (or Cala de Almadraba as the locals refer to it) is too narrow for vehicles, so you will have to walk the last little stretch (a few minutes) and leave your car in the residential area. Don’t worry; you won’t have to haul your sunbed and parasol with you, you can simply rent those once you get there.

Bay of Mal Pas

This charming little cove separates Levante Beach and Poniente Beach. ‘Cala de Mal Pas’, as it is referred to by the locals, is located between the Punta Canfali and the port. One of the ways to access the Mal Pas cove, is via the steps that come straight down from the Benidorm castle. Generally this hidden secret is less crowded than its stretched out and popular neighbouring beaches. The beach of Mal Pas has fine, golden sand and is about 120 meters long. From the beach you have a view of Benidorm Island, which houses a submerged platform that serves as a major Marine Reserve, a real treat for those who love diving.


This is the ideal cove to visit with kids and for those who enjoy getting into the water. Because of the way this little beach is protected by both the viewpoint and the port, the water stays remarkably calm. In fact, this beach has had a continuous blue flag since 1987. These qualities also make this one of the safest and beautiful places to learn diving. You will get to marvel at the underwater life as you practice all the necessary safety procedures; there is dive school located right on the edge of Mal Pas. Paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkelling are other activities that are perfectly suited for this bay.

Festivals in Benidorm

Benidorm is one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the world. Many people from all regions of Spain and Europe have made this vibrant city their home. Every year, visitors and tourists flock here from all corners of the world. Benidorm's rich mix of cultures can be enjoyed in all aspects of daily life here, but it is especially tangible when you attend one of the colourful and fun festivals.

Each year many different kinds of festivals and fiestas are celebrated here. In fact, so many festivities are celebrated here, that it can be a challenge to find a weekend without some sort of an event or celebration. Below we describe a few of Benidorm's vibrant festivals such as The Benidorm Summer Festival, the Iberia Festival, and Benidorm Pride. These are legendary events that are known for their friendly and energetic atmosphere.

Many people time their vacation days just so that they can attend one or more of these magnificent events. Our personal favourite; Benidorm Pride! Scroll down for more information. For dates and information on celebrations and Fiestas in Benidorm that have a more cultural and traditionally Spanish or regional background, see the tab 'National and Cultural Festivities'.

Benidorm Summer festival

Benidorm Summer Festival is a 12-day long event that focuses solely on dancing; high-quality dancing for that matter. This yearly event in the Grand Hotel Balí really encompasses two dance events; first a week-long Bachata & Kizomba congress, followed by the Salsa congress. The national and international artists who perform here are the best of the best. You will be able to enjoy extremely skilled on-stage dance performances with exquisite choreography. For either category there are also over 50 different dance work workshops, several masterclasses and even boot camps.

Reggaeton Beach Festival

The Reggaeton Beach Festival (RBF) has Benidorm and Barcelona editions and is known to be the best urban beach festival. If you like to bounce to reggaeton, RBF is undoubtedly the festival for you. RBF is the largest Urban Festival in Europe that takes place in the city, only a few meters from the beach. Each year the festival grows in popularity and scale; it's last Benidorm edition had a venue capacity of about 15.000 people and hosted around 15 national and international artists.

It doesn't all revolve around Reggaeton at this festival though; besides the sweeping performances, there will also be activities and workshops such as Zumba and Bachata classes. Visit the massage area if you are looking to relax, or if you are looking to cool down, go find the water cannons. Different food trucks offer a wide range of culinary options. As far as beverages are concerned, you can find natural juices, a variety of beers, vermouths, mojitos and other tropical cocktails. You do not want to miss this excellent 2-day summer festival that brings together Reggaeton's greatest lovers and the TOP world artists who are here especially for the occasion.

Low Festival

Every year this independent 3-day Benidorm music festival attracts music lovers from all over the world. Enjoy a variety of musical genres and artists' performances on the three main stages. There is usually no more than a 15-minute overlap between the two largest stages. Bands and artists such as Franz Ferdinand, Kasabian, Foals, The Pixies, The Chemical Brothers, Izal, LA, Full, Las Flores Azules, The Libertines, The Kaiser Chiefs, Massive Attack, Bastille, Hot Chip and Belle & Sebastian, have shone on the stage, among many others.

Low Festival takes place in the Guillermo Amor sports city, a large, comfortable, clean, affordable and top quality venue. Asides from the large area dedicated to outdoor music, there are two VIP areas (one of them with a legendary VIP POOL) and a restaurant zone. There is a wide variety of food on offer, including options for vegetarians and celiacs, and it is unusual to have to queue for drinks. There is a train stop nearby; just a 5-minute walk from the Ciudad Deportivo Guillermo Amor. (The train is a great way to access Benidorm from anywhere between Alicante and Dénia)

Iberia Festival

The Iberia Festival is growing by the year, and rightfully so; every year a large selection of Spain's best and most popular Pop and Rock bands and artists perform here. Set in the famous Julio Iglesias Auditorium in the Bullring in Benidorm, over 20 different artists and bands perform over a period of two days. Each of the two days of the festival, live music is played for about 10 hours straight. Among some of the artists who have already performed here are La Unión, Coque Malla, Toreros Muertos, Tequila and Zigarros. Much of the music played at the Iberia Festival will trigger some sort of nostalgia; well-known older pop and rock numbers are met with the whole crowd enthusiastically singing along.

This top-rated event attracts many national tourists every year; after all, what better excuse is there to spend a long weekend in Benidorm? Tickets are available for purchase in advance and at the venue. There are also special packages on offer that include a hotel stay with breakfast, access to the festival and transport to and from the festival (see www.iberiafestival.com for more details).

Benidorm Pride

For many, Benidorm Pride is the favourite event on the LGBTQ calendar. Since its modest beginnings with a few thousand proud participants, the event has gained momentum. The three F's that attract giant crowds every year are FUN, FRIENDLY and FLIRTY; all of which perfectly describe this event. Benidorm Pride is the most famous tourist festival in Spain. For seven days and seven nights Benidorm turns all the colors of the rainbow as over 15000 people from all over the world flock to this festival dubbed as the 'European Summer Closing Pride'.

This is a true party week that revolves about the three F's and has no particular political or social agenda. In the Old Town in the heart of Benidorm lies the gay village; an already lively neighbourhood that genuinely shines during this week. Many of the over 30 LGBTQ bars in Benidorm are located here, at walking distance from each other.

During Benidorm pride, no matter where you turn, you will find incredible indoor and outdoor parties with a colourful and talented line up of singers, dancers and drag artists. The main event is usually held on Saturday; the Grand Parade! Over 20 floats with more than 300 people participate, and as they dance, cheer, and celebrate, so do the crowds they pass by. This is an event you want to mark clearly in your party calendar.
