A popular tourist destination on Spain’s Costa Blanca, Benidorm boasts around 300 days of sunshine each year. Add to this, blue flag sandy beaches, six amusement parks including water parks, animal parks and theme parks and you have at least 300 reasons to visit with the family, wouldn’t you say?! 😉
Our Five Day Whistlestop Family Holiday in Benidorm
Benidorm is an exciting destination, with loads of options to choose from for a family holiday. During our five-day action packed trip we checked out masses of family-friendly days out, places to visit, restaurants and the hotel where we stayed. I’ll be sharing lots about our trip with you here on Practically Perfect Mums and over on YouTube, so if you’re contemplating a family trip, please keep checking back for new updates. Firstly, have a look at the short Snapchat videos below which offer a flavour of taking a family holiday in Benidorm and then below those I’ve listed the things we did as a family, many of which I’ll be featuring in future videos and/or blog posts.
These videos were filmed on iPhone for Snapchat, hence the weird vertical video format!
