The city is divided into two, known as Levante and Poniente with each section having its own beach. The two beaches are divided by a rocky promontory which is home to the old part of the city. An uninhabited island off the shore provides a dramatic centre piece for anyone who is visiting the beach, looking out to sea.

The majority of tourists that come on Budget Holidays to Benidorm are from northern Europe and especially the UK.
