The vast majority of holidaymakers to Benidorm spend some of their days on one of the city's main beaches that comprise long, wide stretches of golden sand and offer excellent facilities, but there are other Benidorm beaches often overlooked by visitors. It is not difficult to understand why, as the huge Levante and Poniente beaches provide practically all visitors needs. Backed by bustling promenades lined with shops, cafés, ice cream parlours, bars and restaurants, these beaches receive thousands of visitors per day and their facilities and available activities include something for all age groups. Holidaymakers looking to enjoy a more peaceful day should really try one of the smaller beaches.
Other Benidorm Beaches
Cala Mal Pas – Holding its own right in the middle of Levante and Poniente, this beach enjoys a good position for those wishing to visit the Old Town or marina area.

Services here include a life guard and first aid station during the summer months, foot showers, litter bins and an area with sun loungers & parasols.
Cala Almadrava – What this beach lacks in services it certainly makes up for with its clear waters and picturesque position at the foot of Sierra Helada Natural Reserve.

Located to the north of Levante Beach, just beyond the Punta de Pinet headland.
