Spread the love

Benidorm is a great holiday destination. It really does not matter what time of the year you go there you are practically guaranteed to have a great time. This resort is all about fun and offers every kind of entertainment you can think of it really does have something to offer everyone.

Looking ahead to 2016, here is our must do list for visitors to Benidorm:

Terra Mitica

If you have been to Benidorm before and are yet to visit Terra Mitica it has to be on your to do list. This theme park is Spain’s answer to Disney; a truly unique theme park is split into two. One part celebrates the civilisations of the past, the other the Iberian Peninsula. The parks are home to some amazing rides, including the Titánide and the Magnus Colossus roller coasters.

Mundomar and Aqualandia

If you love swimming and all things marine, Aqualandia and Mundomar are great places. The two theme parks are side by side.

Mundomar is a marine animal park that is home to dolphins, penguins, sea lions and a long list of land mammals. You will enjoy the dolphin show and if you book well in advance, you can even swim with them. The parrot show is great too.

Next-door is Aqualandia where you can swim all day and enjoy the fantastic slides and flumes. A great change from the beach.

The Three Kings Fiesta

If you book yourself a new year’s break try to extend your stay so that you can experience the Three Kings celebrations. The old town is where all of the action takes place on the 5th January 2016. In Benidorm, there is always a big parade with plenty of sweets for the children.

Benidorm Fiesta week in 2016

During the year, there are lots of small festivals and fiestas held, but the biggest and by far the best fiesta is the one that is held in November. In 2016, the celebrations start on Friday the 11th November and wrap up on the evening of Wednesday the 16th November. There are street parties, parades and other events going on throughout the city during this time. You certainly will not be bored if you holiday in Benidorm at this time of the year.

On the 17th, you can enjoy a huge fancy dress party. That is gradually becoming a tradition in its own right.

The Balcon Del Mediterraneo

If you enjoy a view and want to stretch your legs, a trip to the Balcon Del Mediterraneo in the old town is well worth the effort. You will have to walk up hill through the old town, but the views are really worth the effort and there are plenty of great bars and cafes to stop in on the way up.

And the rest

As well as all of this there are two blue flag beaches to enjoy, a lively and interesting old town as well as plenty of history and culture. If you fancy a change, a day trip to Guadalest or nearby Altea is a great way to experience the more traditional side of Spain.
