As you have just read: a holiday in Benidorm is a perfect plan for anytime of the year. The privileged climate that the town enjoys makes this easy. But the years of hard work by the local council making sure that there are events and celebrations all year round also plays a large part. So if you have the idea of a break running through your head, don’t think twice: choose your dates, book your Benidorm apartment and get ready to visit a town full of life.
Get away from your routine, if it’s just for a few days, getting trapped by the warm sun and the peaceful sea is always a nice feeling. And if we told you this is possible at any time of the year in Benidorm?
The town has a strategic location and orientation in which the surrounding mountains act as natural barriers. They impede that the cold air flows through in the winter and hold back the clouds of many of the bad weather fronts. Resulting in very few rainy days and the sun taking lead of the days.
From May to October it’s quite normal for the tourists and the locals to take a swim in the sea. They’re even a few who swim all year round. For those of you who don’t like such extremes the town is just as attractive, and appealing throughout the cooler months.
Benidorm is constantly transforming and evolving. A town that welcomes and wins the hearts of its habitants from all parts of the world has to strive to keep up the best offer. So the main achievements of the local Council are concentrated precisely on this idea: expanding the offer of entertainment and leisure of the town to satisfy all publics, all year round.
