Getting to grips with the water sports of Benidorm

June 6, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Benidorm is a holiday resort that has a lot to offer its visitors. As well as the features for which it has become almost synonymous – namely nights out and sunny beaches – one of its very best draws is the great variety of water sports that are readily available for tourists to get involved in. Ranging in types and styles and suitable for all levels and ages, there’ll always be a sport to find that is right for you. Below are some of the best to try out.



One of the first things you should look into doing in Benidorm is scuba diving. The resort is perfectly located to see some of the ocean’s most interesting marine life, and the clear and warm waters make the experience all the more enjoyable.  The nearby Mitjana Island is a good spot to get started. It has diving centres that provide courses ranging in level from beginners to advanced, organised outings that are available throughout the day and into the night, and equipment to rent if you don’t have your own. Mitjana Island itself is a great place to explore and has a fantastic beach to relax on after a day of scuba diving.

For a wider range of water sports, the main beaches of Benidorm have almost every one you can think of. Paragliding, surfing and jet-skiing head up the most popular that are on offer and, like scuba diving, there are courses available for both those new and those already seasoned in the sports. If you’d like to do something less demanding, though, there are also pedalos that are readily available to rent for both pairs and large groups. Numerous hotels are located close to these beaches. To find the one that is best suited to you, the Co-op travel website is extremely useful in filtering through the many that are around to locate one that best suits what you’re looking for.

If you’d like a day to relax and see the sites of Benidorm, the boat trips that are run daily from the coast of the resort are the perfect way to do so. In going on one, you’ll be able to see parts of Benidorm that are otherwise inaccessible, including a range of coves and bays.
