Things to do in Benidorm
At the campsite we are used to receiving people who ask us for information about things to do in Benidorm. It is not the same to look for plans with children between 8 and 12 years old than our little crazy people from 13 to 17 years old. We take them out of their environment to spend a few days in family, resting, but we have to offer them something different.
We will talk about what to do in Benidorm for adults, children, couples, families or anyone who wants to do something different during their holidays.
