Poniente beach in Benidorm is where older Spanish beach holiday makers and families spend their days basking in the sun.
The 3.7 km long beach is well maintained, has a blue flag and an award winning promenade.
Playa Poniente starts just behind the marina and stretches as far as Tossal de la Cala, where you’ll find the hermitage ‘Virgen del Mar’ situated on top of the hill at the end of the beach.
You get breathtaking views of Benidorm including both beaches and the Old Town area. Apart from the views, you’ll find ruins of a Roman settlement that was first excavated in the 1940s and dates back to the 2nd and 1st centuries BC.
Check out this fabulous apartment by Bravos Club if you fancy staying at the Tossal de la Cala.
Poniente is fast becoming the place to be in Benidorm with numerous high quality apartment blocks being built with prices that run into the millions. The accomodation offer in Poniente is exceptional and there are some fabulous restaurants from typically Spanish to Thai and everything in between. Try the Portus Massai beach bar for amazing food and drinks in front of the beach. One of the most spectacular buildings in Poniente Beach is called InTempo, it’s Europe’s tallest residential building and officially opens this summer.
Built just in front of the InTempo, you’ll find the twin towers, Sunset Drive, a luxury residential complex with spectacular views and 5 star amenities.My favourite are the Sunset Waves, another twin tower complex in the shape of waves in an area called Via Parque, set back from the beach and ona hill with again views to die for.
