Set in the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean, children will learn history in the best way, whilst having fun! Shows and dances, attractions for all ages and likes, areas where you can rest, areas where you can cool off… Entertainment guaranteed even for the oldest of the family!

Aqua Natura

If Aqualandia was the first option that we have suggested to cool down, Aqua Natura Benidorm is the second. This water park is part of Terra Natura but with a different entrance. As well as the attractions areas you will find areas to relax and have a picnic, different gastronomical options and in short, all that you need to enjoy an exciting day out.




If you fancy learning, getting to know and meeting animals on your family holiday put Mundomar on the list. You can find it right next door to Aqualandia an ideal location: on the Serra Gelada mountainside close to nature. From the park you can look out and contemplate the town, its amazing skyline and the sea views. Enjoy all of this whilst visiting the different mammals, birds and reptile species.

Another place that we suggest that you visit to enjoy animals is Terra Natura Benidorm. As we already said its right next to Aqua Natura. You will have a complete experience with the animals as many of the spaces are designed and thought for you been in contact with the animals. This guarantees a fun day for children and adults alike.

Benidorm Beaches

Benidorm beaches aren’t only for the summer. Thanks to its wonderful climate that continues throughout the year, you can enjoy the beach even in the months of January, March or November. We’re not talking about taking a swim but along the miles of beaches there are plenty of places to enjoy on the sand. Swings and slides, climbing frames, goal posts and Volleyball nets have all been installed to guarantee hours of fun. Why not come and explore the activities that each area of beach has to offer?

Bowling Alley in Benidorm
