What's the best time of year to visit Benidorm

There's so much to do in Benidorm and only so many hours in the day. When you know exactly what you want out of your holiday, you might wonder what's the best time of year to visit Benidorm to get the most out of your plans. We've had a think and come up with some ideas below. No matter when you visit, however, booking your airport transfers with Holiday Extras will mean you'll be met at the airport and driven to your resort reliably and at a competitive price.

For sun worship

Benidorm is blessed with beach upon beach for visitors to stroll along and sunbathe on. The peak time to catch maximum sun is in August, when the temperature can go into the 30's. The average temperature for the remaining summer months is 26°C, so if you're planning your trip around Playa de Levante or Playa Poniente beaches, or perhaps waterparks like Aqualandia or Aqua Natura, June-September is a great period to visit.

For watersports

The sea is generally warm enough to dip into all year round in Benidorm. Temperatures vary from 13°C in February to 26°C in the middle of summer, so watersports are something to enjoy no matter when you visit. If you're looking to try cable skiing, scuba diving, kayaking or banana boating, we recommend April-May or September-October. These months aren't as blazing hot as summer, so you won't be too sun-tired to get active.

For nature

There are a handful of wildlife parks in and around Benidorm, including Terra Natura(which has 200 species to see) and Safari Aitana, 47km away from the town. To get the most out of a visit to these natural parks, spring is the best time of year to arrive. You won't feel overwhelmed by wandering around in the heat, but the weather will still be glorious and the sights will still be breath-taking.

For indoor pursuits

While winter in Benidorm doesn't tend to reach 0°C, the climate is cooler than summer, hovering at an average of around 15°C (still a lot warmer than a British winter!). You can still head to the beach, but when it's chillier why not take the chance to brush up on your culture? Benidorm has lots of museums and attractions that teach you about the area, like the Maritime Cultural Centre and the House Museum art gallery. Perfect when the beach isn't the most attractive option.

Whatever the weather, our reliable Benidorm airport transfers will get you to your resort reliably and in comfort. We offer a great range of vehicle options, all at competitive prices. From shared shuttles, to private cars and minibuses, we will have an option to suit you and take the stress out of getting from the airport.
