Benidorm and its annual festival
Publishing date 30/09/2013
Benidorm is one of those towns that becomes even more charming and attractive with the arrival of autumn. Temperatures are milder and all sorts of possibilities are now open to you. Plus, from 28 September to 6 October, the town will be holding its Moors and Christians Festival. Don't miss it!
Benidorm holds its Moors and Christians Festival from 28 September to 6 October, a week when fun and laughter, Moorish and Christian parades, colour, music and the unmistakable smell of gunpowder flood the streets of this Mediterranean town.
We suggest you visit Benidorm, not only to enjoy the festival celebrations but also relax on its best known and most peaceful beaches. To start with, you could go down to the coast and stroll around the coves of Ti Ximo and La Almadrava before moving on to Levante beach, the most cosmopolitan and famous of Benidorm's beaches, and from there to Poniente beach.
Benidorm's old quarter contains the majority of the town's shopping streets, although you'll also find more traditional spots such as Carrer dels Gats, the church of San Jaime and Castillo-Mirador, between Levante beach and Mal Pas cove, where you can find the viewpoint of Balcón del Mediterráneo.
Don't miss Benidorm, make the most of the mild weather in early October to relax on its beaches, explore the old quarter of town and have fun at the festival.
