I love finding good viewpoints when I’m traveling. I’m always on a hunt for a rooftop bar or a hill you can climb. If you’re visiting Benidorm in Spain, check out these Instagram-worthy spots!
Tossal de la Cala
This one is probably my favorite viewpoint in Benidorm! It’s located on the other side of Poniente beach and you can either take a taxi there (ask them to wait if you want to take a taxi back as well) or walk.
La Creu Benidorm
This viewpoint is located on the opposite side – on the other end of Levante beach. It’s a good idea to rent an electric bike and cycle around Sierra Helada Natural Park. Read more here.
Take a jeep tour with Marco Polo Expediciones, and they will take you to the outskirts of Benidorm. One of the places we visited was this viewpoint pictured above – a cool place where you could see the whole city of Benidorm. Read more about the jeep tour here.
Balcón del Mediterráneo
Located in the old town, this place divides the two beaches – Levante and Poniente beach and offers a great view over the sea and both beaches. It’s also a lovely place itself and definitely an Instagram-worthy spot. This place is also called The Castle Viewpoint because centuries ago a castle of Benidorm was located here. The best time to visit is early in the morning to watch the sunrise because evenings can be really busy and a little too crowded (at least in the summer).
Hotel Madeira Centro
I didn’t stay at this hotel, but I went there for drinks and dinner. Planta 20 is a rooftop bar from where you can get a spectacular view of Benidorm from above. I would say this is a hidden gem of Benidorm because there were not that many people watching the sunset at the time I was there. After the drinks and sunset watching, you can have a dinner at the restaurant and enjoy the beautiful night views.
Meliá Villaitana Golf
If you want to stay outside of the hustle of the city, a good option is Meliá Villaitana Golf Hotel. This place also offers beautiful views over the golf course and the city.
Take a boat trip to the Benidorm Island and walk to the top to get fantastic views of Benidorm.
Or you can just take a boat trip somewhere else and go for example snorkeling or stand up paddle boarding. Either way, you’ll get a cool view of the Benidorm skyline.

These are beautiful viewpoints! I will definitely go on the jeep tour when I visit, looks like so much fun!
Yes, the jeep tour was so much fun! 🙂
Lovely! I can’t even decide which viewpoint is my favorite! Well, maybe La Creu 😉
Happy continued travels!
The spots are absolutely amazing! Thanks for sharing
They were pretty amazing! Benidorm is full of hidden gems.
I’ve been to Spain twice, but never heard about Benidorm until this post! Thank you so much for introducing me, Gabriela! I hope to go there someday.
It as also a new destination for me!
Great post and super helpful for when I visit Benidorm! Thanks for sharing these locations!
Nice to hear it was helpful 🙂
Like many things in life I stumbled across your site by chance. I think I was looking up double glazing companies, followed by the top 10 places in the world for romance and then your blog. Beautifully assembled narrative and images of loads of wonderful places. Gabby. Many of your photos have images of yourself in the composition – and artfully without you facing the camera. Are these images taken by a companion or do you use a tripod?
I’m and old guy dodgy hips but I still get about. I too have visited Eritrea. I took my Brompton folding bike.The main focus of my trip was to travel to the location of the tree that is illustrated on the 5 Nakfa banknote. Another highlight was visiting the Fiat Tagiatelli service Station. A couple of years back I travelled the length of Cuba on my road bike – from Punta de Maisi in the east to Cabo de San Antonio in the west.
Gabby I have a lot of respect for you. in life regret the things you’ve done – not the things that you’ve not done. And avoid negative and cynical folk. You’re still a young woman but your experiences will strengthen your resolve to achieve anything you’ve set your heart on in life.
Happy new year, keep safe and if you get in touch I’ll send you some of my own images.
Hi Barry! So nice to hear that you’ve been to Eritrea too! It’s such a cool country 🙂 I have an app for my phone and can use it as a remote to take photos. That’s why I’m not facing the camera most of the time because I’m hiding the phone in my hand 😀 I haven’t been to Cuba or most of the Caribbean countries yet. I just find it very expensive to travel there when you basically have to fly every time you want to go to a new country. But one day I’ll go there!
