Benidorm has two main beaches – the Playa de Levante ( Levante Beach or Sunrise Beach ) to the north and the Playa de Poniente ( Poniente Beach or Sunset Beach) to the south. The historic Old Town of Benidorm with its narrow streets and alleyways lies near the castle and is dominated by the church of San Jaime and still manages to retain some Spanish character. Next to the historic quarter are the wide avenues and commercial streets which make up the more modern Benidorm along with its iconic skyscrapers.

The main areas for nightlife in Benidorm are the “strip” of Levante Beach Boulevard which goes down the beach, “The Square” around Avenida Mallorca, Old Town Benidorm, and the huge dance clubs on the main road just outside of Benidorm.
There are plenty of gay venues and events in Benidorm. Benidorm’s gay scene actually goes all the way back to the 1960s, when its first gay bar, called Gay Bar Pretex opened. Since then, Benidorm’s gay scene has grown throughout the narrow, cobbled streets of the Old Town. There are many small gay bars as well as some clubs. The majority of the gaybars in Benidorms Old Town are centred around the Calle Cuatro Esquinas and Calle Santa Faz.
