Benidorm Spain

Situated along the Valencian coastline of Spain in the Alicante Province on the eastern edge of the country bordering the Mediterranean Sea, Benidorm is a complex mixture of skyscrapers, resorts, beaches, and all-inclusive fun. It is one of the premier holiday resorts in Spain, and has been nicknamed the Manhattan of Spain as a result of the skyline of skyscrapers rising up behind the beaches. Beyond the city itself are the Costa Blanca Mountains, putting Benidorm smack-dab in the middle of some of Spain's most picturesque backgrounds.

While these days the city sees more than 5 million visitors every year, back in the 1960s it was just a little village along the coast, sheltering local fishermen. Over the years it has transformed until it exists as it does today, as a package resort offering a wide array of modern amenities and accommodations to please the conscientious traveler. The primary reason so many people come here is because of the beaches and the surrounding countryside, offering a glimpse of some of Spain's most spectacular landscapes. The surrounding province is full of rolling hills and old Spanish towns, and the beaches are perfect for simply lazing around all day, enjoying the world-famous Spanish cuisine, wine, and hospitality.
