The beach orientation poles that you can find on the Beaches of Benidorm are actually a Belgian invention. The inventor of the piles, Dominiek Vervaecke from Oudenburg, even has a copyright on his invention. The poles are primarily intended for finding lost children, the only thing you have to agree with your children is which pole they should walk to if they are lost or have strayed too far. Picture by Harry Fabel The poles were first placed on the Beaches in Belgium and were later used in other places such as Benidorm and Cannes. An interesting fact is that the poles in Benidorm have been used illegally for quite some time because there was no permission from the inventor due to the copyright, this dispute was later settled.
In the port of Benidorm, you can find this small but well-located bar. The special thing about the bar is that it has a fantastic view over the small marina and the skyline of the city. The bar is therefore called Bar Panoramico and is located above the maritime center of the Port de Benidorm. Picture by Harry Fabel In addition to the beautiful view, the bar also offers various small dishes and different drinks with sometimes interesting offers. The bar is open all year round and you don't need to be a member of the marina club to visit. Especially in the winter months, the place is a suitable place to enjoy the afternoon sun with a beautiful view over the many high buildings along the Poniente beach and the yachts in front of it. Picture by Harry Fabel You can find the bar across the entrance to the small Mal Pas beach. There is also an excellent fish restaurant below the bar.
