Go here and you can get a photo with the Poniente Beach (old town) in the background, swap places with the photographer and you get a photo with the Levante Beach (new town) in the background, SIMPLES!! If you are unfit and do not have a 'chariot' then i wouldn't advise a visit as it is uphill all the way.... More

We walked down to this lovely spot on our family trip. We managed to get down here where we reminisced about previous trips. It wasn't too crowded so was able to get a good spot and take pictures of the view. All to soon we had to leave the calm and return to the hustle and bustle.

My favourite place in Benidorm to watch people and the world go by. Great views of both beaches in Benidorm. Great place to be in the evening and watch the sun go down.
