Ice Cream Parlours in Benidorm
Ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! When holidaying in the sun, there's surely nothing more refreshing than enjoying a delicious, cool ice cream while watching the world go by. Benidorm's idyllic climate and vibrant atmosphere attracts thousands of holidaymakers all year round and its many ice cream parlours are a firm favourite with adults and children alike.
Modern day ice cream parlours offer customers a huge range of delicious and unusual flavours, combinations and toppings from which to choose. Some specialise in waffles and crepes whilst others offer healthier frozen yogurts and fresh fruits. Benidorm's ice cream parlours provide a fabulous range of frozen treats for all the family to enjoy.
Founded in 1990 by Gino Fratini in the French city of Nice, Pinocchio ice cream parlours have grown over the years and now have no less than six outlets in Benidorm alone. The company's success can be attributed to its commitment to use only the finest ingredients sourced from regions known to supply the best quality produce.
Some of Pinocchio's outlets across Benidorm have added delicious home baked pizzas and exotic cocktails to their menus, but it's their splendid ice creams that they're still renowned for. Customers can choose from numerous exciting flavours of ice cream and frozen yogurt served in tubs, cones, cornets or platters and topped with a choice of exotic fresh fruit slices or salsas, rich sauces and sweeties for the kids. Alternatively, patrons may treat themselves to a tempting assortment of thick milkshakes, refreshing sorbets, ice cream sodas or fruit smoothies. Prices obviously depend on the size and complexity of the ice cream product chosen, but may be described as reasonable in relation to the superb quality. The following is a list of the six Pinocchio ice cream parlours in Benidorm and their locations:
- Gelateria Pinocchio – Calle Tomas Orturio
- Gelateria Pinocchio Playa – Avinguda Alcoi
- Gelateria Pinocchio Palmera – Paseo Carretera
- Gelateria Pinocchio Gambo – Calle Gambo

The brand name Haagen-Dasz is synonymous with quality ice creams worldwide. The company was founded in the Bronx, New York in 1961 and today its premium brand ice cream range may be found in supermarkets and other retailers across the globe. Their ice cream content is high in butterfat and dense in consistency giving it a rich and creamy flavour and texture. In more recent years, Haagen-Dasz have opened ice cream parlours in strategic locations in many cities around the world.
The Haagen-Dasz ice cream parlour in Benidorm can be found on Centro Comercial La Marina Finestrat. There is both indoor and terrace seating options and the spacious interior is cool, clean, inviting and tastefully decorated. The friendly staff are extremely helpful and have an incredible knowledge of their range of ice cream flavours. The ice cream menu is extensive with a huge choice of flavours and speciality dishes. Prices tend to be on the steep side which may be expected from a premium brand such as this, but the ice cream is simply ‘to die for'!
Frozen yogurt is a lighter, more refreshing and healthier alternative to the rich, calorie packed ice cream available in most of the ice cream parlours found in Benidorm. Yog2Go is situated on Avenida Madrid near the beachfront and has developed a novel self-service concept in the sale of its frozen yogurt range.
Customers are given a large carton and first help themselves to one or more flavours of delicious frozen yogurt to which they can add a variety of toppings including fresh fruits, fruit coulis, sauces, sprinkles and mini sweets. The friendly staff then put your carton on the scales and you pay according to its weight. In this way, your personally created dessert is only limited to your budget, imagination and appetite!
