The Costa Blanca is a fascinating part of Spain and tourists have been flocking to the province of Alicante for many years. Its beautiful coastline is a wonderful viewpoint from which to appreciate the Mediterranean Sea and the area is famous for its special beaches. Popularity has not meant that visiting the Costa Blanca is a wallet stretcher, however.

Many British tourists choose to stay in affordable Benidorm. Half a century or so ago, Benidorm was a small village, but now it’s a vibrant resort and home to a wide variety of high-rise hotels. There was a time when Benidorm could be a bit rowdy, but the atmosphere has gradually evolved and it is now a great destination for visitors of all ages.

Geographically, Benidorm is backed by a mountain and has several beaches of its own. It does not cost a fortune to get there, which frees up many people’s budget for the cost of accommodation. The resort is not just a place where high-rise hotels are in abundance; there is a large variety of apartment blocks too. Prices of both accommodation types are reasonable. An old city has been preserved within the wider settlement.

As well as tourists, Benidorm attracts immigrants, many of whom are British. When it comes to hotels for tourists, there is plenty of choice. One example, the Rosamar Hotel, Benidorm, is located very near the beach and has a wide variety of facilities.
