Alicante, and also its province, is well-known for its good weather all year. It always feels like spring. In fact, the weather will seldom make you feel disappointed. Yet, sometimes rainy days come and ruin all those outdoor activities you had already planned. And, as we don’t want the rain to spoil your holidays, in this post we’ll show you a wide selection of things to do in Benidorm when it rains. So, take a piece of paper and a pen because we are about to start!
Things to do in Benidorm when it rains: plans and ideas
Benidorm has a lot to see and do. And a rainy day doesn’t have to stop you, does it? That’s why we wanted to put together the following set of free time activities for you. Going shopping, eating out with the family or meeting friends are some of the things you can do in Benidorm when raining.
Have you ever walked through downtown Benidorm? If you’ve never visited the old town, you’ll be surprised by its cobbled streets full of clothes, jewellery and craft shops. And if you don’t fancy going shopping, you can always enjoy tasting a good pintxo and a glass of wine in the famous Zona de los Vascos. This plan will probably make your wait a lot more bearable.
On the contrary, if you are keen on malls, in La Marina shopping centre you will find hundreds of shops, restaurants and parks for children. Without a doubt, free workshops for children, watching a movie or playing bowling are excellent plans to do on rainy days. Especially if you go with children or teenagers. And remember, if you don’t feel comfortable driving in the rain, local buses have a stop at this shopping mall.
To choose between the cinema and the bowling alley
Why choose only one plan when both can be done?
Watching a movie
Popcorn and a film is a safe bet on a rainy day. There are three cinemas in Benidorm. The cinemas placed in La Marina shopping centre we’ve just mentioned, the IMF cinemas and the Colci cinema, both in the centre and in Rincón de Loix.
In the same way, to play bowling is a really fun plan when it’s raining outside. There are two options to play a match. The Ozone bowling alley, which is placed in the city centre, and the Bowling Paradise that is located in La Marina mall.
Another thing to do in Benidorm when raining is to learn more about the history of the city. So, we suggest that you go to see Boca del Calvari Museum. This place, in the central part of the city, keep different and changing exhibitions that allow visitors to get closer to Benidorm’s culture and traditions.
Paying a visit to Benidorm Circus
This circus without animals offers shows for the whole family. Amazing light and sound shows with acrobats, dancers, magicians, trapeze artists and amusing clowns. Performances that will surprise you and delight children and adults alike. The place is well communicated and easy to park. Can you think of a better things to do in Benidorm when it rains? And with children!
Having fun in a Escape Room
If you’ve been thinking about going to an Escape Room, a rainy afternoon would be the perfect time. And if you already know how fun these sessions can be, why not to repeat? It’s certainly a enjoyable activity for friends and family groups where it’s required to work as a team, find out the mystery and finally escape. In Benidorm there is the Lockdown Escape Room. There you will have up to three rooms with different challenges and atmospheres to try.
Enjoying the camping entertainment
If you prefer not to leave the camping site, Villasol also offers a large number of activities. Children will have a great time at the MiniClub or with any of the plans that are arranged for them: sport competitions, team games or workshops. Moreover, we don’t forget adults as they can also enjoy daytime entertainment and live music, shows and karaoke at night.
