Benidorm … And Beyond.
There’s much more to the Benidorm area than some of its visitors first appreciate. The area is awash with plenty of things to see and do should you wish to venture away from the venue. On this page we offer only an insight into what’s on offer.
The immediate area of La Cala itself a pretty quiet place with lots of shops, bars and restaurants both in the area of the Cove and The Promenade. For a leisurely stroll into Benidorm, just turn right out of the hotel, go up the slope and then down towards the sea where you’ll find The Promenade.
For any golfers we can recommend The Villaitana Golf Club which sits proudly at the heart of the Costa Blanca, in Benidorm.. The club has 2 Championship Courses which were designed by Jack Nicklaus Design, the Par 72 Levante Course offering spectacular views of the coastline and the Poniente Course that is a little shorter at Par 67 but will certainly test a golfer’s short iron play. A driving range, practice and putting areas are also available as are golf buggies and good quality set of clubs can also be hired.
Or anyone interested in visiting a beautiful tranquil Spanish village, only 8kms from the hotel is the village of Finestrat. With a castle, hanging houses, a traditional village square and a church dating from the 1700s it’s a great place to spend a leisurely afternoon. There are a number of local hostelries in the village offering traditional Spanish lunch menus. To explore the village a little more just click on the link here: Finestrat

A must see part of the Costa coastline is Busot. Although a 45min bus-ride it’s the location of the stunning Canelobre Caves, a labyrinth of underground cathedrals hewn out of the rock over the millennia.
