Christmas comes but once a year, and when it does Benidorm does all in its power to transform the resort into a fun-packed winter wonderland with attractions that include an ice skating rink, a traditional Yuletide market at Elche Park, concerts, and much more besides.
Central to the festivities is the area around the city hall where you’ll find bouncy castles, the skating rink, and 10-meter-tall figures of the Three Wise Men— thought to be the tallest in the world.
Also known as the Three Wise Kings, they—rather than Santa Claus—come bearing gifts.
The Plaza SS.MM. Reyes Españoles will be the setting for most of the Christmas shows included in the programme, which are open to the public, free of charge.
Four different Nativity scenes have been created in the city and will be on display from December 3 to January 6.
Festivities will culminate with a Three Wise Men parade on the afternoon of January 5. It will end at the Julio Iglesias Auditorium.
On Saturday, December 31, Benidorm will celebrate its famous New Year´s Eve Party at Levante Beach.
