Linda Morris - March can be a great time to visit Benidorm. Weather can be variable, we have had some weeks where you can sit on the beach and other weeks sheltering from the rain, generally speaking we’ve had good weather.

We love March as a contrast to the summer months so we can walk around a lot easier than when it’s really hot and visit more neighbouring resorts.

Easter can fall in March and if it does there are parades and celebrations by locals which is lovely to see. You would find it hard to get a table for Sunday lunch anywhere on Easter Sunday as families congregate and celebrate in local restaurants. Easter is a very busy week in the resort and hotel prices can go up so these are all things to watch out for, but we’ve really enjoyed Easter week here.
We always book apartments and flights separately and March is often one of the cheapest months to visit, so if you’re on a budget and don’t mind variable weather, it’s a great choice.

PatandMike Fenna - We have been going around the 20th March for a number of years and 8 times out of 10 it’s been lovely during the day and a bit chilly at night … perfect for us

Margaret Edwards - Had a bad experience in March weather wasn't kind so put me off, but otherwise paddy's day was good and the burning of the fallas we went twice, first time beast from the east at home went to Europe and my god it was freezing 2nd time we had rain.

Harry Hobson - Personally I’m not worried about weather. Benidorm is amazing place to be the beaches the restaurants and bars the people, the surrounding areas. What ever the weather you’ll always find something to do.

Marie McKenna - Best time to be there in March is on the 17th

Caz Burnett - The Fallas are an amazing fiesta, something that shouldn't be missed.
