If you fancy a day away from the bustling Benidorm beaches, then Benidorm Island is a great family day out. It is a small, uninhabited, 7-hectare island situated just 4 kilometres from Benidorm and is accessible by a short 15-minute boat trip that runs daily from the Port of Benidorm.
There is loads to see there. There is a small rocky area where you can relax and go for a swim in the crystal clear waters which are fantastic for snorkelling. In calm seas the visibility can be as high as 25 metres, and they are home to an abundance of fish and other marine life, as well as caves and reefs. If you want to get even closer to the marvels beneath the surface, multiple companies offer scuba diving sessions. If you don’t want to get wet, you can still get close up views on a glass bottomed submarine.
The views above the surface are great too. Walk up to the top of the island and you will get an unspoiled view of the mountainous Benidorm coastline.
