If someone mentions Benidorm you think of miles of beaches, sun, sea and fun; this is the main tourist enclave on the Mediterranean. The two largest beaches, Levante and Poniente and, inbetween, Cala del Mal Pas are always frequented by sun worshippers.
Striking is the famous skyline of Benidorm, which is strongly reminiscent of great American cities. Most noticeable are the Hotel Desk, the tallest hotel on the European mainland, and the new apartment building Intempo. This building, still under construction, is 200 metres high and has 64 floors, making it the highest residential building in Europe. Benidorm is taking the name Beni York!
Benidorm has succeeded through the years, attracting visitors who return annually. Also, though, Benidorm caters for young people. The theme parks such as, Aqualandia, Mundo Mar, Terra Natura and Terra Mitica attract the young generation.
