8 things you should do in Benidorm!

1 Sierra Helada nature reserve
Within minutes you can leave sky-scraping towers behind for sky-scraping cliffs. All you need is a pair of good shoes and you’re set for a hike through a rugged landscape of limestone rocks and Aleppo pines. At the northern end, there’s a paved road that twists up to the beautiful Albir Lighthouse.

2 A good restaurant and the nightlife
As a tourist enclave, Benidorm has the best Spanish and world cuisine. The large population of ex-pats and visitors from all over Europe makes dining in the resort an international experience. At an unbelievably sharp price.

3 La Cruz de Benidorm
The 45-minute hike to the cross is best attempted in the colder seasons, as the landscape is pretty exposed to the sun. But even if you do go in summer the panoramas of Benidorm make all the toil worthwhile.
