Eat and drink in Benidorm
Benidorm Old Town is a world away from the bright lights and noise of its modern counterpart. The charming, traditional restaurants found here serve delicious tapas and fresh fish. Pull up a chair on the cobbled streets and enjoy an authentic Spanish dish whilst watching the world pass by.
Tapas are small, tasty dishes usually ordered in 4s or 5s; theyre the perfect size for sharing and for trying different things.
After drinks in The Square, hail a taxi and head to the epic Top Road. If youre in the mood for dancing then this row of super-clubs will see you through to dawn most of them are open until 8am. Penelopes and KU Benidorm have been going for years and come highly recommended.
Buying drinks in The Square will be cheaper than in the Top Road clubs themselves.
