Gay Benidorm Guide, The scene, hotels, saunas, beaches & bars
Benidorm has a very vibrant Gay Scene with the Gay nightlife mainly concentrated in the narrow streets of the Old Town
A popular cruising area, and the La Cala area by the rocks at the end of beach is a nudist area. Be careful can be dangerous.
continue walking behind where the photographer of photo is stood and around the headland. We are not sure if this area is still popular due to the building that has taken place in the area
At the North West end of Playa Levante, a 10-15 minutes walk to the second bay beyond the headland. Use the short cut and walk along the pipeline, boxed in with concrete. Cruising from the first bay onwards, in the gorge above the second bay and along the cliff paths
Playa Levante is a popular tourist beach with mainly populated with non gay visitors.The popular gay area and swimming area for gays is in front of Playa Bar (gay bar / cafe). For serious cruising and action visit the other more remote beaches listed here
There are no services so take a litre of water with you
Take a bus to La Cala, walk towards Alicante,past La Cala Beach and up the steep road straight in front of you. Before the top of the road transfer to one of the paths on your left and head for the ruined buildings on the hilltop skyline where there is a slow lazy dip between the 2 higher points in the skyline..and over the hill to the next beach.
It is very Cruisy around the entire area around the ruined buildings
From the hill top with your back to La Cal;a the beach is at an angle of 450 to your left. Follow one of the paths in that direction<
By Car Take N-332 to Alicante and exit at ‘Vilajoyosa’. After 2 km make a left turn at the Casino. Head for the coast. There is a car park near the beach

Playa Campomanes Beach
10km North of Benidorm, And near Altea. A partially gay nudist beach. Take the Altea to Calpe road N332, just before the tunnel, under Pueblo Mascarat.turn right.
