The main beaches in Benidorm are Levante and Poniente.
Levante has more bars, cafes, shops and clubs – it is where most of the action is – especially at night.
Poniente is by no means quiet – but it has less going on, especially at night than Levante.
There is also a small beach below The old Town – and a nice little beach – La Cala – at the western end of Poniente.
For gay men, the main attraction is Raco de Conill at the western end of La Cala.
