Poniente Beach in Benidorm
Benidorm, located beyond the Old Town of Benidorm, has a more laid back atmosphere than Levante, and is more popular with Spanish tourists.This is the longest beach in the town of Benidorm.
Poniente beach of Benidorm Measuring more than 3 kilometres in length, with a delightful and refurbished promenade, it is the perfect place for a stroll along the shoreline on the Costa Blanca.
It is an urban beach which begins at the marina and stretches as far as the Finestrat cove, and has a new Seafront Promenade alongside, which in turn houses numerous restaurants, bars and other premises for the enjoyment of visitors.
The crystal-clear blue waters, as at Levante beach, are incredibly clean, allowing for a whole host of watersport pursuits, including snorkelling and diving, so as to enjoy the seabed covered with posidonia grass.
Poniente is equipped with the full range of leisure services and amenities, such as floating platforms, beach libraries, children's play areas, sporting and leisure pursuits, shaded areas for reading and the accessible beach service to facilitate access and enjoyment on the part of people with reduced mobility.
The Seafront Promenade is a new transitional zone linking the man-made city to the natural space formed by the sea and beach. It should be seen not as a frontier or border but as an intermediate space which in turn plays a central role and enhances the environmental quality of a hugely attractive setting which is intended to allow the horizontal expanse of the sea to blend in with the outright verticality of the urban skyscape which characterises the city.
