Escape to DYMK

Two notable nightlife spots in Benidorm's old town gay area are undeniably linked. Besides the fact that they both have the same owner, they are also two places that complement each other perfectly. 

Escape and DYMK, Escape is more of an old-fashioned chat cafe when it's not too busy, and when it's busy it's more of a shout cafe. Having fun with your favorite music in the background is a great way to start the night here. The bar also has a slightly quieter separate lounge with the remarkable name LOU LOU LOUNGE. How it got its name is a bit unclear, although this may be one of the topics you can discuss in the bar. The bar staff is friendly with a little twist, which is quite normal in Benidorm.

Escape is not very big, so if you want to get a comfortable place come on time, it can be very busy at times. It's also not the right place to dance, you're better off doing that in DYMK, the abbreviation of "Does Your Mother Know". A dance club named after an ABBA song? This can't be anything but a very good place! DYMK is the largest dance bar in the area. Admission is free, but of course, at least one drink is obligated. With its two bars and DJ, DYMK is the perfect place to either end your night or, for some, continue it. The bar staff here are also very friendly, international, and well prepared for your late-night escapade. DYMK sometimes has special themed nights, which are announced on the screen outside the club and on their social media pages.

Both places are located almost next to each other and you can find them in Carrer d`Alicant 12 and 18, right in the Benidorm old town.

The new Mirador of Benidorm

The famous and much-photographed viewpoint of Benidorm has been completely renewed. The archaeological excavations are over and the city has given the square a facelift so that the selfie-making visitors can once again enjoy the fantastic view. Picture by Harry Fabel In June 2019, archaeological excavation work was started at the Mirador del Castillo, meaning that it was closed to visitors throughout the summer. A search was done, among other things, for the remains of the old "Castillo de Benidorm" that was destroyed 200 years ago by the British. On the well-known large rock that separates the two beaches stood a fortress that had the function of defending the city against the raids of Algerian and Berber pirates in the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. Later the Castle was abandoned and nowadays there are only a few remains of walls on the rocks of the lookout point, which is also known as the "Balcony of the Mediterranean Sea".

The Gay Village is located in the oldest part of the city and consists of about 4 streets. There are about 15 gay businesses in that area. Their numbers can vary, some close and others open, it is a constant change. Some other gay businesses are in close proximity to the Village.
