Benidorm , as a family tourist destination, has a multitude of activities that can be done as a family. The first and foremost for any child is to enjoy the beach. Surely there is no better attraction or easier place to spend hours and hours, free and cool.
For those looking for more elaborate plans for children in Benidorm, on the Levante beach, in the Rincón de Loix, there is Cable Ski to put your balance in practice. There are also Bici Benidorm points where you can rent bicycles and be able to walk its streets. Even a boat trip to the Island or underwater view to observe the flora and fauna of the Mediterranean.
There are so many things for children to do. Even if they are picky eaters, there are plenty of British restaurants, fast food chains and pizza joints, so they are likely to find something to suit.
Shop around for the best deals. Don’t rush in and book direct with your chosen hotel. Benidorm hotels have set prices – and they very rarely offer decent discounts to individual tourists. But the reputable agencies book in bulk -and can negotiate very large discounts.
There are plenty of good agencies online. So shop around! Half-Board is probably the best option for families. This means that breakfast and dinner (but not lunch) are included. Full board is not so good – because you will have to drag your kids off of the beach to return to the hotel for lunch.
There are plenty of decent cheap places to eat lunch along the sea-front. Try to stay as close to the beach as possible. Seafront accommodation is more expensive – but a few yards inland
prices drop quickly. 700 Metres may not sound far – but that’s half a mile, which is a long walk for young children.
If you decide to go self-catering – be careful where you shop. Food is expensive in most Benidorm supermarkets. The cheapest place to buy food is Lidel – just outside Albir – about 15 minutes frpm Benidorm. The Number 10 bus goes there every 20 minutes – make a day of it, because Albir is well worth a visit. The 10 bus runs all day from early morning until midnight – and it’s cheap (Just over One Euro for adults).
Choose the Levante Beach end of Benidorm – more cheap options than Poniente Beach or the town centre. Check below , we have filtered this family friendly hotels.
