With an average temperature of 11º, January in Benidorm offers sunny days and mild temperatures with cool nights. Leaving to aside the dips in the sea and pool and the night time walks along the promenade, there are many more things that we can do in this town that is full of life every month of the year. If you don’t believe us? Here are 5 plans that you cannot miss during your holidays in Benidorm in January.
#1. 5th January : Not to be missed The Three Kings Parade
At 6:00 p.m. departing from The Dove Park (Parque de Elche), the Three Wise Men’s Parade will take place, ending at the Town Hall (The route will be: Av.
