Benidorm in August - What to expect from your holiday

Benidorm in August, what to expect from your holiday.   Benidorm is an all year round tourist destination but each month is slightly different with regards to tourism. August is different to other months, in that it becomes one of the main holiday resorts on the Costa Blanca for the Spanish themselves, with 1000s travelling from even hotter inland areas, such as Madrid, to enjoy the city's coastline, with its clear waters and sea breeze.

Find your Ideal Accommodation

Benidorm has something for everyone. Occasional when we come across people who didn't like Benidorm, with a little probing, we often learn they simply stayed in the wrong area.

To use the facility you simple select the criteria that makes for your ideal holiday and our list will filter showing accommodation that suits you. Hint: If you get a negative result from your search, try refining your search as sometimes it is not possible to match all criteria.

The Surrounding Area

There more to Benidorm than Benidorm

Think you've seen it all? Time to explore? There is so much to see in the surrounding area. Numerous towns and Villages surround Benidorm. Each one places and extra cherry on the Benidorm cake. The word Beautiful is commonly used when we mention Altea, Gaudalest or Algar Falls. Why not hire a car and really explore the area. There is so much to see and it would be unfair of me to take away all the surprises, but heading into the mountains is one suggestion.

Wild Life

Afraid of the Creepy Crawlies?

You could argue that the wild life in Benidorm happens in the square every night where the younger people like to congregate. But we do have a significant number of living creatures you would not expect to come across in the UK. This section will help you distinguish between the ones you can stop and admire and the ones you should give a wide berth to. There is also help and guidance for treatment of stings or bites. But its not all bad news. It could be a Bird Watchers paradise

I want to look but not touch.
