Benidorm is just 45 minutes south of Javea. It´s love it or hate it type of place! It does offer some fabulous entertainment and shopping experiences. During the winter months there are great value deals for a night or two with all inclusive hotels and free entertainment in nearly every bar.
The Benidorm Palace always has a spectacular show, usually dancing, singing and cabaret. You can just watch the show or have dinner there as well. It makes for a good night if you travel from Javea and stay in a hotel for the weekend.
For the more daring or broad minded there are many comedy and drag shows that will leave you blushing. Overall a night out in Benidorm is an experience, maybe not one you want every night though!
On the outskirts of Benidorm there is a large shopping centre with Carrefour and all the usual high streets shops, as well as an El Corte Ingles outlet store offering great bargains.
