Poniente beach

Poniente beach is the first beach you come across in the southern area of Benidorm. It starts at the sea port and stretches for more than three kilometres as far as the area known as La Cala (The Cove). It is the largest of all the beaches and competes with Levante beach in terms of beauty and services on offer, although the atmosphere is generally quieter and there is more space. Its fine golden sand looks clean and immaculate every morning.

It offers a wide range of equipment and services, such as: numerous sun beds and umbrellas for sunbathing, foot washing facilities, etc.

A notable feature is the architecture of its spectacular promenade, which looks like the structure of a cliff and resembles the movement of waves and tides.

Mal Pas beach

The small cove of Mal Pas is located between the beaches of Levante and Poniente, right in the heart of the old town. Opposite the cove is Benidorm Island, which is home to an important marine reserve with excellent sea beds representing an authentic paradise for divers.

It is small, pleasant, and usually not very busy, unlike Benidorm’s two main beaches. There is a bus stop nearby, and other services such as parking, showers and telephone.
