Benidorm is one of the most famous summer holiday destinations in all of Europe – and one of the most popular. Due to the warm climate, accessible location in eastern Spain and the shimmering Mediterranean seas around it, it begin to boom in the 1950s, and it’s never really stopped growing. There are plenty of affordable flights from the UK, taxis from Alicante Airport to Benidorm and great places to stay.

The resort’s popularity also means there’s something there for everyone, with fun filled and exciting adventures for the whole family. Read on for some of the best.

Terra Natura Benidorm

Both a theme park and an incredible modern zoo, Terra Natura holds more than 1,500 animals from more than 200 species, including 50 in severe danger of extinction.

The 2,500 examples of more than 160 species of plant life make the animals feel at home… and guests feel transported to their natural habitats in the wild. There’s a good variety of restaurants and cafes to grab a bite to eat and relax – perfect to give your kids enough energy to move on to the next enclosure and keep exploring.

In case that wasn’t enough, there’s also a water park.

Top Tip: Check what’s on before you decide when to go – Terra Natura hosts a good range of ever-changing shows and activities.

Safari Aitana

Even more so than Terra Natura, Safari Aitana prides itself on authenticity – you’ll truly come away feeling like you’ve been on a real African safari!

Situated on a mammoth reservation 1,000m above sea level, Safari Aitana lets its animals roam free in climates close to their natural ones. Staff stay out of their way and let them socialise, and some profits go to charities to help feed and shelter vulnerable creatures.

Guests can enter and leave as they please, so if you’re the type to hop out of your transfer from Alicante Airport to Benidorm and dive straight into your first activity, you’ll be right at home. It’s even better, though, to go with a guide, either on a group visit or on a private tour.

While it may not compare to the wonder of seeing creatures in the wild, Safari Aitana provides an unforgettable experience without ever needing to leave Europe. Your kids won’t believe their eyes.

Bioparc Valencia

The final attraction on our list is, if you’ll pardon the pun, a strange beast. A zoo with the style of a safari reserve, the bioparc uses revolutionary landscaping to make visitors feel like the animals are roaming free without any barriers.

The effect is astounding. Each locale is themed after a different part of Africa, so you can move from the savannah to the tropics as creatures great and small seem to play and socialise around you.

How to Get There

The distance from Alicante Airport to Benidorm is less than 60km, with the journey taking 40 minutes by shuttle. Flights from the UK are affordable, with a range of airlines offering a lot of direct options each week.

With all this to explore, why wait to book your flight to Alicante Airport? To Benidorm you go – prepare for fun, sun and safari.
