A Guide To Your Benidorm Stag Weekend

Best bars in Benidorm
Best Bars in Benidorm

You don’t need us to tell you there are plenty of places to drink in Benidorm, but we can let you in on a few secrets to the town’s best bars.

People come from all over the world to visit the banging bars down the Levante Beach Boulevard – otherwise known as the strip. At night it comes alive, but don’t miss out on day-drinking opportunities over a chilled game of pool, cabaret show or… bingo.

“The Square” (the area around Avenida Mallorca) promises a more relaxed evening or day hangout with plentiful outdoor stag-friendly seating. Benidorm has a great party scene and down in Benidorm Old Town, you’ll find an electric mix of bars offering every tipple you can imagine!

"El águila no se entretiene en cazar moscas."

Where to Visit in Benidorm

Districts - If you're on a Benidorm stag do there's pretty much only one destination worth worrying about. Head to 'the strip' which contains all the biggest and best nightlife. Everything is within walking distance. It can get pretty manic and what with keeping the stags together being a bit like herding kittens it might be worth laying down a few stag forfeits.

Must see...

Benidorm really is all about sun, sea, sand and sangria. It's an amazing place to party. If you're really going to make the most of it, hitting the beach is a must. It's not only good to work on those pre-wedding tans, but the sea breeze makes a good hangover cure.

Pub Trivia

In the 1950s the town's mayor had a vision to put the sleepy fishing village firmly on the tourist map.
He allowed women to wear bikinis on the beach and the rest is history.
Half a million Brits visit the Costa Blanca every year.
Benidorm has two beaches and 3,400 hours of sunshine each year.
The Celtic language (used in Scotland and Ireland) was spoken in the north of Spain until 1 BC.

Getting Around Benidorm

Getting into Benidorm from the airport couldn't be easier, book with StagWeb and we'll arrange it for you!

The town itself is nicely compact and getting around on foot is a doddle, in fact, wherever you stroll, the beach always seems to end up just 5 minutes away. The best of the nightlife is also easy to find on foot. If you are heading further afield then you can hop on a bus, certain bus routes run all night long. Travel cards give you unlimited access over a set time period.

Getting around Benidorm

Benidorm Stag Do Trip Tips!

  • Flights to Benidorm from Birmingham - 2hr 40m
  • Flights to Benidorm from Glasgow - 3hr 5m

Benidorm Transfers

Benidorm airport transfers will take around 40 minutes and are the easiest way of getting to your accommodation as you’ll be able to quickly negotiate the airport and hop into to your private vehicle which will be ready and waiting to whisk you off so you can kickstart the party. You could also get a bus from the airport to Benidorm regularly running throughout the day.

Local Customs and Tipping Culture

Similar to the UK, tipping in Benidorm restaurants, it’s reasonable to give 5-10% gratuity if the service was good. In bars, you could tip a euro or two depending on the price of your beverage!

Activity No.1 – Bubble Football

It’s any footy fan’s dream to play a game abroad and now is your chance… although, this has a slight stag do twist! This is the beautiful game, but not as you know it!

Home-Bittersweet-Home! Although it’s nice to be back in Britain, it pains you to say goodbye to Benidorm because it was an incredible host for your big weekend away. Goodbye for now, we’re sure it won’t be the last time!

Benidorm – the land of a thousand bars and endless "Let's never speak of this again" nights out that inevitably someone will talk about again.

Head on a bar crawl, treat the boys to some lap dancing at one of their famous strip clubs, party on through ‘til sunrise, this 24 hour stag playground is your oyster!

QI - Benidorm became popular after the mayor made it the first city to lift the ban bikinis.
Oh happy days!

Old Town

Traditional white-walled houses, cobbled streets and bars, like Michael Caine surveying the charging Zulus, "Thousands of them...". Well, there are hundreds for sure. Bars, pubs, live music venues, theme bars, tapas restaurants, burger joints, pizza places. Passeig de la Carretera is the main route, packed with shoppers by day and party people by night, which runs down to the beach. The Old Town is also home to El Mirador de la Punta del Canfali, the castle lookout point and the perfect place for a stag team photo.


The New Town district, Levante is modern and cosmopolitan, packed with brilliant bars and restaurants. It’s also a great place to start a big night out and has launched many a Benidorm stag do. With everything from cabaret bars and karaoke, so you can get musical, there's also a huge selection of British grub on offer if you can't persuade all the guys to try something a little more continental. Levante is also home to English Square, drinks around here are very cheap and the party crowd tend to be mostly British. If it's live music you're after, check out Daytona and Heartbreak which both feature live bands.

Rincon de Loix

Home to the famous Benidorm Palace (it's a show and nightlife venue, not a small castle) and yes, there are more bars (this is Benidorm!). The Rock and Roll House has great live bands and tribute acts. Many venues sit overlooking the beach making this a nice spot to start or end the night, raising a glass to the groom, enjoying the sunset and reminding him that his best years are now officially behind him. Because that's what friends are for.


Slightly further away, this is where you're more likely to find locals in the bars rather than tourists. Slightly quieter than the famous Old Town and streets like Avenida Madrid, it's actually a really nice walk along the seafront during your Benidorm stag weekend to get to Poniente, and you will find a slightly older crowd away from the midnight revellers of English Square.

QI - Can't find room to lay out your beach towel?
Keep walking, Costa Blanca has 200 kilometres of coastline to choose from.


Skyscrapers - The town considers itself the Manhattan of Spain. It certainly does have some pretty impressive erections (oh come on, you're better than that!), including the 192-metre Intempo, one of Spain's tallest buildings.

English Square - The perfect place to party at night and still a pretty cool place to see by day, with plenty of handy places to grab a bite, you can treat those Benidorm stag do hangovers and piece together the events of the night before.

Benidorm Zoo - Yes, if animals are your thing, there is a large zoo with lions and tigers and bears.

The Old Town - During the day you can still see the charm of the original fishing village with cobbled streets, white-walled buildings and traditional Spanish food.

Calle Santo Domingo - Known as 'Tapas Alley', you can literally eat your way from one end to the other. Now THAT's how you do sightseeing!

The Beaches - A great place to head to conquer those hangovers and top up those tans!

Waterpark - Unleash your inner child and just go nuts! See exactly what awaits you in the waterpark.

Festivals - Benidorm has a number of awesome music festivals throughout the year. Ask our team for details of the best times to hit the resort.

QI - 'Costa Blanca' isn't actually a Spanish term, it was dreamt up by British European Airways as an advertising gimmick to attract more British tourists.

Photo Ops

Placa del Castell - The 'place of the castle' is where the former castle that protected Alicante from pirate raider and invaders is located. The views are immense. There are also big canons because, you know – the gun show. It also leads on to El Mirador.

El Mirador de la Punta del Canfali - This lookout point juts out to sea and is an ideal spot for those team photos with blue skies and crystal-clear seas in the background.

La Cruz - The cross of Benidorm sits to the West overlooking the resort. Originally put in place in 1961 to absolve the resort of its sins, it is undoubtedly the best view of the area. The 45-minute hike means very few tourists see it, but it’s well worth the trip.

The Beaches - Yep, it's back to the beach so you can show off your beach-ready bods and Instagram the results.

QI - In Europe, only London and Milan have more skyscrapers than Benidorm.
