Benidorm Beaches

Benidorm is renowned for its excellent Blue Flag beaches, with miles of sand and clear blue waters.

The most famous beaches are Levante, Poniente and Mal Pas, but a few lesser-known coves are also worth a visit.

Given Benidorm’s large gay community, Levante, Poniente and Mal Pas attract a good number of gay sunbathers all year around, but are not “gay beaches” in the same sense as, for example Playa de la Bassa in Sitges. The most “gay” local beach is Raco del Conill.

A small, secluded, sheltered beach, located about 6 km southwest of Benidor  Raco Conill was officially designated as a nudist beach and is popular with gay visitors during the summer.

The easiest way to get to the beach is by car. From Benidorm, take the N332 south, exiting onto the CV 767 towards La Vila Joiosa Nord/Villajoyosa Norte.  Continue along this road, turning left onto a single track road immediately before the Casino. Continue down to the beach.

There is a small car park. During the summer, there is also a small “chiringuito” selling drinks and snacks.

One of Benidorm’s most popular beaches, attracting tourists and locals alike. Stretching for over 3km, the mostly sandy Poniente Beach runs southwest from Benidorms Old Town.

In recent years local government has invested heavily to improve the beach and its excellent tree lined promenade. The most gay popular area is close to the Old Town, within easy reach of the ReFuel Cafe Bar.

One of the best beaches on the Costa Blanca. The blue flag Levante Beach has become an iconic symbol of Benidorm with 2 km of glorious fine sand and clear blue sea.

The area near the Old Town is usually less crowded and attracts more gay sunbathers near the Don Cesar Café.

If  you want to find a quieter, more secluded beaches, then two nearby coves are well worth visiting.

Ti Ximo and Almadraba coves are located at the far end of the Levante Beach, across a rather steep hill behind the Benikaktus Hotel.

Almadraba is popular for spot of nudist sunbathing (although not officially nudist). Sun loungers are available on both beaches during summer. Both beaches are great for swimming and snorkeling.

There are no bars or restaurants on either beach, so bring refreshments and wear sensible shoes. Parking is very limited near the beaches, so it is best to leave your car in the residential area above the coves.
