When you think of Christmas you usually think of cold and snow, so you may not think of Benidorm as a perfect Christmas destination. Nothing is further from reality, Benidorm has an unforgettable Christmas spirit.

In this publication we are proposed to break with this thought, and convince you that Benidorm has some of the most authentic Christmas parties.

La Plaza de España and surroundings

It becomes the main point of Christmas in Benidorm. The town hall square is transformed into the Christmas Square. You will find an environment that will encourage you to spend long time with the family among its inflatables, its covered ice skating rink, performances and visits by Christmas characters suitable for the whole family to enjoy.

A few meters from the square, we find Gambo street where the typical manger is exposed and in which the smallest of the house can find the Three Wise Men and Santa Claus with their royal postmen, wishing to receive all the full letters of wishes of small and great.

Throughout this area, you can also do your Christmas shopping in Benidorm through the different shops in the area, and spend an afternoon shopping preparing Christmas gifts.

Turning on the Xmas lights and nativity scenes

As the month of December approaches, the city prepares for Christmas with the official inauguration promoted with the traditional proclamation and musical and children’s performances. After these acts, the famous lighting of the Christmas lights takes place that turns the Christmas square into the epicenter of the Christmas spirit in Benidorm

On the other hand, the nativity scenes are an essential stop in the city on these dates. As is tradition, you cannot miss the great Benidorm nativity scene on Tomás Ortuño Street, together with the PlayMobil nativity scene, they make up the main tourist offer of nativity scenes in Benidorm.

The Three kings parade

As is typical, the Three Kings parade is another of the important events in which their Majesties land in Benidorm together with their entourage to cross the city and leave children and adults astonished in their spectacular floats until they reach the Christmas Square.
