Benidorm has a commercial area in Finestrat with a shopping mall called La Marina. You can’t miss it. It is just off the N332 and can be seen from the motorway. There is a massive Carrefour, El Corte Ingles Outlet, Lidl and McDonalds across the road with ample free parking.
La Marina Shopping Centre first opened on 14th September 2000 and consists of four floors: one underground floor offering completely free parking, two shopping floors and one leisure and foodservice floor. On this top floor, in addition to restaurants, a cinema and a bowling alley, there are also 4000m2 of fun attractions for children (including bouncy castles, mini golf, an assault course, karts and a princess’s castle).
In 2011, the shopping area was increased through the creation of a retail park intended for large establishments where one can find stores such as the outlet of El Corte Inglés, Jysk, Kiwoko, Sport Zone and Fifty Factory.
La Marina offers a wide choice of fashion to satisfy even the hardest-to-please women, the most demanding men and the most rebellious children. The secret lies in offering a broad range of the very best brands all in one place: Sprinter, Zara, H&M, Massimo Dutti, Guess, Swarovski/Pandora, Primichi, C&A, Mango, Benetton, Mayoral, Stradivarius, Tous, Desigual, Orange, Paco Martínez, Vodafone, Desigual and Macson, amongst others.
