Kids love the two large theme parks. Aqualandia Benidorm, a water-themed leisure park, covers an area of 150,000 square metres, stuffed with fun rides and adventure pools. Extensive green areas offer plenty of room for picnics and tanning in the sun, and countless restaurants, cafés, and shops cater to the visitors. Your car hire will wait for you on a toll-free car park.

Benidorm is situated on the Gulf of Alicante, 45 km (32 mi) south-east of the town of Alicante. Tourists spend most of their time on one of two beaches. Playa de Levante is 2.5 km (1.7 mi) long and is immensely popular, a fact which is reflected in the fact that it overflows with sun worshippers during high season. A pedestrianised promenade separates it from the long line of hotels and restaurants on the waterfront. Playa de Poniente is roughly the same length but usually less crowded. Both beaches are separated by a rocky patch of land reaching out into the sea. This is the point where the once sleepy fishing village turned into a crowded beach resort in the 1960s. The Old Town has withstood the change and the sense of tranquility has mostly been preserved. The old buildings now house souvenir shops, jewellers, bars, and restaurants.
