Benidorm Holidays

The town of Benidorm is located about 45kms northeast of Alicante, on the Costa Blanca, Spain. Benidorm is situated about 60kms north of Alicante’s El Altet airport. Back in the year 1953, Benidorm was a small little fishing village which wasn’t much heard of. This is the time when the local mayor Sen`or Pedro Zaragoza visited the then dictator General Franco, to lift the ban on bikinis to which the general agreed and thus the mayor started building one of the most successful resorts of the world in Benidorm.

With a population of 70,260 inhabitants, Benidorm is ranked as the fifth most populous town in the province of Alicante. Because of the unique skyline formed by the numerous tall apartments and hotels, Benidorm is sometimes referred to as the “Manhattan of Spain”.
