Although Benidorm is known for its skyscrapers, in the same city or very close to it, nature abounds and we find thousands of plans related to it. So if you want to take a break from the beach and discover the exciting natural world that hides around Benidorm, here are five ideas to enjoy a day in nature during your stay.
1. Protected Landscape of Puigcampana and Ponotx
Very close to Benidorm, between the regions of La Marina and l’Alcoià-Comtat we find an incredible mountain range that never fails to amaze us. This area includes the Puigcampana and Ponotx ranges, declared “Protected Landscape” since 2006. There you can enjoy fun mountain activities and hiking. Totally recommended!
This animal park in Benidorm is designed for everyone, children, young people and adults, to have fun. You can discover different species of mammals, birds and reptiles with different shows and also live unique experiences like swimming with sea lions or having a meeting with dolphins.
3. Island of Benidorm
This island, located in front of the coast of Benidorm, is uninhabited but allows visitors to stroll through it. From the coast you can book a boat that arrives to the island and provides a magnificent view of the Bay of Benidorm. In addition, on the island there is a restaurant that caters to those visitors looking to rest while enjoying spectacular views.
4. Terra Natura
This is a new generation zoo that implemented “zooimmersion”, a new concept of zoo where visitors can have contact with animals through barriers that are invisible to human eyes. A very fun and enriching experience for all audiences!
La Almadrava, Cala Finestrat, Cala Tio Ximo … in Benidorm not all beaches are the same and there are a large multitude of small beaches that you will love at first sight and that will allow you to discover the flora and fauna of the area in all its splendor.
