No Valentine’s in Benidorm is complete without exploring the charming old town.

Poniente Beach and Mal Pas are two of Benidorm’s best-loved beaches and well-worth a visit.

No romance-filled Valentine’s in Benidorm is complete without walking arm-in-arm along the seashore.

3. Stop off at One of the Many Fantastic Restaurants for a Coffee and Some People Watching

Valentine’s Day is all about romance, so be sure to slow down and enjoy as many bars, restaurants, and cafés as you can.

For the hopeless romantics, it’s the perfect opportunity to stare lovingly into your partner’s eyes.

For the less romantic couples, it’s a good excuse to do some people watching and let the world go by.
Foodies shouldn’t miss the famous Tapas Alley in Benidorm Old Town.

If you fancy a nibble before dinner, get in the Spanish spirit and grab some tapas with a glass of wine or beer.

If it’s tapas you’re wanting, Pete, who in Els Poblets suggests: “I love Valentine’s Day, for me, it’s about intimacy, about romance, a time to spend together just you and your loved one. So for me, there is no better place than El Temple, after a day walking amongst the orange groves surrounded by the mountains. Small, cosy, warm, unrushed and accompanied by great personalised service from the husband and wife team.”

“I just love the tapas set menus, prepared with all care and love by the chef. Each dish is specially prepared and beautifully presented, each one a surprise that is just perfect for sharing and which makes your mouth water.

Most of all they say I love you, that you are special.”

4. Go for a Romantic Valentine’s Picnic

Wrap up warm and head up to la Sierra Helada for a cosy picnic with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. 
Alternatively, if you prefer your picnic with a sea view, pack a picnic and head to Poniente Beach.

You’ll usually see boats gliding across the water and the sunsets are out of this world.

Another impossibly romantic spot for a picnic this Valentine’s in Benidorm is the Tossal.

Located in La Cala de Finestrat, if you walk to the top you are greeted with some stunning panoramic views and colourful sky. It’s worth the walk.
