The beaches of Benidorm – Levante, Poniente, Mal Pas and Cala del Tío Chimo – are the permanent owners of Blue flags – the international award given to beaches that meet excellence in the areas of safety, amenities, cleanliness and environmental standards. Day and night the beaches of Benidorm are teeming with life.
Cala la Almadraba
Cala la Almadraba is a small wild beach located at the base of steep cliffs of the natural park Sierra Helada. Difficult to access. A great place for snorkelling.
Cala del Tío Ximo
The name of the half-wild beach “Cala del Tío Ximo” means in Spanish “the harbour of uncle Chimo”. It combines sand and rocks and is located next to the Cala la Almadraba beach. Popular among the nudists.
Located in the heart of the town and surrounded by enormous tower blocks, the Levante beach is considered the most famous distinctive feature of Benidorm and is one of the busiest in the whole Spanish Mediterranean. The sea and the sand here are exceptionally clean. The Levante beach extends over 2 km; however, during the peak season it’s quite difficult to find a place to lie down. Levante offers a wealth of watersport & fun opportunities, such as pedal boats, water slides, water skiing, jet skiing, paragliding and boat rides as well as a lot of cafes, restaurants and shops. The beach is sited with the Blue flag – the international excellence award for beaches.
