In case you still didn’t know, we would like to make this clear, the best time for a holiday in Benidorm is any time. Thanks to its mild Mediterranean climate and its attractive and particular landscapes this city has earned its popularity. November couldn’t be a better month to escape for a few days.
You might not get the suntan of your dreams. You might not fancy jumping into the sea, the cool water is only for the brave. But what you can be sure of in November, with a difference to the rest of Spanish cities, you can enjoy the sun, nice temperatures and streets full of people, full of life and with plans to do. To make your decision just a bit harder, to give you that last little push to come to our city we propose 3 plans to do in Benidorm in November. Carry on reading!
1. November Benidorm Fiestas
November the month of Gunpowder, treason and plot, we don’t have Guy Fawkes night, but between the 11th and 15th November Benidorm Fiestas have plenty of gunpowder, fireworks, music and parades along the Benidorm streets. Without a doubt the best week for the people of Benidorm when the streets are filled with lights and laughter.
If you enjoy nightlife and parties, you can find plenty on the two main streets, Calle La Palma and Calle San Roque every night. If you prefer daytime plans on Saturday 11th in the afternoon you can enjoy the flower offering in the center. On Wednesday 15th in the afternoon don’t miss the Spanish fancy dress parade, the floats leave from the Parque de Elche and make their way to the Plaza del Ayuntamiento throwing sweets along the way. And last but not least, don’t miss the amazing firework display that can be seen from the Poniente Beach.
Once the official Benidorm fiestas are over, the British fancy dress party starts, at midday on Thursday, a 20 year old tradition, when the square and Rincon de Loix area are filled with holiday makers and their colorful fancy dress costumes.
2. A long walk by the sea
Nothing is healthier and more enjoyable than a long walk by the sea. As you can imagine, in Benidorm, this is possible everyday of the year. We would like to recommend a walking route, starting in the Parque de Elche (The Dove Park) a 40 minute walk to La Cala of Benidorm. The new Poniente promenade has amazing sea views, children’s playing areas and plenty of bars and restaurants along the way where you can try some wonderful seafood or have afternoon tea in the sun. When you reach the end of the walk and turn round you will be able to contemplate a wonderful panoramic view of Benidorm.

3. Crepes and waffles
Our third plan for your break we propose a walk into the the old town to treat yourself, a must, a visit to gofrería y crepería Manneken-Pis you can find it Avenida Martínez Alejos, 3 or on Paseo de la Carretera, 21. A small kiosk that offers a large variety of crepes and waffles, sweet or savory. We don’t know the secret recipe of their dough but they are without a doubt the best in town, or even in the country.
