This webcam is located on the Marconi Hotel, Poniente Beach. Overlooking the promenade, Elche park, Benidorm port and with a view of the top of the Old Town Benidorm.
This beach begins after the harbour and stretches right along to La Cala. It has a striking promenade, designed to resemble waves with steps and slopes giving access to the sand. These ‘waves’ provide shelter for winter sunbathers. Areas are allocated for sun beds and umbrellas to be hired on a daily basis, but there is plenty of room for families to bring all their own beach furniture. At the rear of the beach are designated areas for ball games. The Spanish holidaymakers favour this beach and many of the little cafes and restaurants that line the road behind the promenade are Spanish.
This beach is noticeably quieter with no live music or stag and hen parties.
The Elche park which overlooks the harbour provides welcome shade in the summer months and has a nice children’s play area and outdoor exercise machines.
At night the fountain there is illuminated with changing colours and it is a popular place to sit in the cool of the evening.
