Many people say that the only reason that Benidorm has become as popular as it is, is due to the abundance of cheap hotels and apartments on the Costa Blanca. While it is true that cheap hotels are plentiful in Benidorm, there are still luxury and 5 star hotels all along the coastline. Aside from accommodation, the other main draw for a lot of people is the climate and the spectacular weather. The weather in Benidorm is as close to perfect all year round as anything you will find anywhere in the world. The perfect weather is one of the big reasons that this spot on the Costa Blanca is so popular as a vacation spot. While Spain itself has pretty good weather, this particular part of Spain has spectacular weather, simply because of the geography of the area. Benidorm is surrounded by mountains on three sides, and these mountains block the cool wind that comes down from the north. This is what makes the weather in Benidorm ideal all year round.
Costa Blanca has the basic beautiful Mediterranean climate anyway. Mediterranean climate means that the winters are fairly mild to begin with, and the summers are very long, and spring and fall, while they’re short, they’re warm. Typically, vacationers like to become tourists in the summer. For a lot of people, this is due to the fact that they have children that are in school, and they want to enjoy their vacations with their children. Also, summer is the hotter part of the year, and in Benidorm, it rarely rains, this means that you could enjoy the fantastic Benidorm beaches even better.
Between May and October, these are the top tourist times in Costa Blanca. But even in the spring, the temperature runs between 50 and 70F. In August, sometimes the temperature hits a 100F, this is pretty warm even for the most devoted heat seeker. But at least it drops down in the evening to the 65, 70, 75, 80F range. If you’re going to be like a typical tourist, and you want to get there during the typical tourist time, which by the way is when most of the events that are attractive to tourists take place, don’t forget the supply and demand factor. You best bet is to plan your vacation in advance. A lot of people will be looking for cheap hotels in Benidorm and car rentals, and flights during that time, so your best bet is book early so you can get the accommodations that you want. Personally, I think planning in January, which is typically the coldest winter month, is a great time to do it. It gives your mind and body a promise of good things to come. It can be the coldest winter night and you’re thinking about Benidorm, and that’s a warming thought to begin with.
