Poniente beach Benidorm is much quieter, bigger, and more relaxed than the party beach Playa de Levante.
The 3.7 km long beach is well maintained and has a blue flag plus an award-winning promenade.
Poniente beach 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.
Fast developing Poniente beach impressive skyline
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 accommodation 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 is the Sunset Waves, another twin tower complex in the shape of waves in an area called Via Parque, set back from the beach and on a hill with again views to die for.
If you’re looking for luxury then Poniente Beach is the place to stay, check out and compare these fabulous apartments. If you prefer to be waited on hand and foot, there is a fantastic choice of top-quality hotels to choose from.
Four of my favorite Poniente Beach Hotels
Villa del Mar
It has a stunning rooftop pool with fabulous views.
Hotel Villa del Mar offers a buffet restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine, with an optional all-inclusive regime too. The bar at this design hotel prepares cocktails in a relaxed atmosphere overlooking the Med.
At the top end of Poniente beach, close to Tossal de la Cala the Gran Hotel Delfín is located in a quiet area Poniente. It has a large garden with an outdoor pool, and overlooks the bay. It’s a Benidorm classic hotel and is well worth considering.
Literally on the beach! Rooms feature a terrace with fabulous sea views. There is also an outdoor swimming pool which overlooks the beach. Couples particularly like the location.
Corona del Mar
Located at the end of the Parque de Elche or Dove park, as we Brits call it.
The Hotel RH Corona del Mar is one of the best family hotels in Benidorm with amazing facilities. One great feature is that it’s close to Old Town.
