No sitting on the first 6 meters near the sea is permitted, this rule was made due to Covid, but proved a great success so will continue, this allows bathers easy access to the sea and a place where walkers can enjoy the area without tripping over towels etc This also allows easy access for emergency services.

FREE wifi is available at Levante, Poniente and Mal Pas Beaches.

A new entry point at the end of Poniente beach (Tamarindos promenade, La Cala), has been created by removing an old loading dock, foot baths etc have been installed

Future improvements - In Poniente, the City Council will be improving the wooden walkway that runs along the lower part of the promenade and Benidorm will invest 4.5 million in renovating all the lighting of the Paseo de Levante.

CALA TIO XIMO

Beaches in Benidorm Cala Tio Ximo

Cala Tio Ximo is situated at the base of steep cliffs off the Sierra Helada, to the North of Benidorm. The road goes down to this beach with road side parking. This is a small cove where visitors can escape from the hustle and bustle of the busier beaches and is used by locals as a nudist beach out of season. Combining fine sand and rock, this cove is ideal for snorkelling, as it has crystal clear waters, where you can view the beautiful rocky seabed.

Did You Know?  This beach is actually named in honour of a well known Benidorm resident - Tio Ximo, you may have noticed the old abandoned house on the road down to the beach, this house was owned by Tio Ximo who loved Benidorm and its people so much that when young couples were married he let them use his house for their honeymoons.  This gesture was appreciated by many over the years and upon his death this cove was named after him.
