Many people look forward to retirement with great enthusiasm, as this is the time of life when you can enjoy the most free time after a long working life. Travelling is one of the favourite activities among pensioners.
It’s time to relax, enjoy the good weather, the beach, the sun and good food, and Benidorm is undoubtedly one of the favourite destinations for this segment of the population. In this post we are going to discover everything this city has to offer for your retirement.
Perfect for pensioners: Come and enjoy Benidorm and its landscapes!
Benidorm is the holiday destination par excellence for people over 65. And it’s for good reason. Benidorm for pensioners is noted for its excellent gastronomic, leisure and cultural offer, combined with a good value for money ratio.
Benidorm is a synonym for leisure and fun. The city is full of shops and shopping centres, entertainment venues, restaurants with the best national and international cuisine, zoos and amusement parks, the best hotels affordable to all budgets –many of which also offer live music shows, board games, etc.– and wonderful beaches of fine golden sand on which to relax.
The Poniente and Levante beaches are located in the centre of Benidorm and are characterised by calm waves and a long coastline, ideal for long walks. What’s more, they are surrounded by all kinds of shops, restaurants and bars to complete a day of leisure on the beach. For those who prefer a little more peace and quiet, there are also more secluded beaches, such as the Almadraba and the Finestrat coves, both of which are easily accessible.
But Benidorm has much more to offer than beaches and leisure activities. In terms of landscape, it is a beautiful place. The old town is pedestrianised. This allows tourists and locals alike to stroll through the streets and visit shops and boutiques peacefully. Benidorm’s promenade, which runs along the Poniente beach, is another of its great assets. Strolling under the late afternoon sun enjoying the sea breeze is one of the favourite activities for pensioners, but also for tourists of all ages. Crowning the promenade you will find one of the most beautiful places, the Balcony of the Mediterranean, a viewpoint from which you can see the city, as well as beautiful views of the sea.
The best tours for pensioners in Benidorm
The city also offers a wide range of tours for pensioners, such as, visiting the parks of Elche and L’Aigüera, two very popular green areas in the city centre. These are places where you can relax and where there are usually a large number of musical and cultural activities. In these areas there is also a wide variety of bars and restaurants where you can enjoy the best dishes of the Mediterranean cuisine, as well as dance halls where you can enjoy fun-filled evenings. There are also activities and tours such as boat trips to the island of Benidorm, as well as a tour of the city on a sightseeing bus.
Some companies offer sea tours on boats from which you can even see the seabed.
As you can see, Benidorm offers pensioners an endless range of cultural and leisure activities, a large number of alternatives for an unforgettable holiday!
