Benidorm is an ideal destination for families. Although many people think that it is a city of mass tourism and with a predilection for a young audience, the reality is different. There are many options and places to discover with children: beaches, routes and trips, theme parks and activities such as snorkelling and seabed exploration. So, if you want to have a family holiday, Benidorm is a paradise for adults… and for children.


In Benidorm there are a total of 5 beaches: Poniente Beach, Levante Beach, Cala Mal Pas in Benidorm, Cala La Almadrava and Cala del Tío Ximo in Benidorm. Going to the beach is always an ideal plan to enjoy with the family: sunbathing, playing in the sand, enjoying the water or playing sports. In addition, most of these have a play area so that the young ones can have a great time.

Trips and routes

For lovers of family trekking, we can choose to hike through the Serra Gelada, the only Maritime Terrestrial Natural Park in Spain. There are also other spectacular routes to explore the mountains with the little ones in the Sierra de Bernia or the Sierra de Aitana. We can also take advantage of the maritime charm of Benidorm and opt for a boat trip to Benidorm Island. Every day you can visit this place and enjoy the tour around the island in a boat with underwater vision.

Theme parks

Benidorm boasts attractive water parks for the whole family. The Aqua Natura Water Park has slides, swimming pools and games for children and adults. And if you prefer stronger sensations, you can spend the day in Aqualandia: jacuzzi areas, swimming pools, whirlpools, white waters, waves and water currents. And this is not all, because if you choose to leave the water for a few hours, the Mon-Magic play park is an ideal place to have fun with rides, inflatables and mini golf.

Water activities

Water sports are one of Benidorm’s star activities: surfing, scuba diving, Cable Ski, kayaking… But, if there is a water sport that stands out from the rest, this is snorkelling. Also, it is an ideal plan to do it as a family, since you only need goggles, a snorkel, flippers… and to be eager to discover the secrets of Benidorm’s seabed.
