Top places for remote working in Benidorm

The Benidorm skyline and the city’s reputation as a party capital are famous throughout Europe and other parts of the world.  In recent years, Benidorm has become a magnet for remote workers and Digital Nomads: “Your Mediterranean Workplace”. People are drawn here for the beautiful beaches, the wonderful weather and the relaxed pace of Spanish living.  Plus the fact that you can live in Benidorm very comfortably on a wide range of budgets.

The city of Benidorm rose up (literally) in the 1950s when mass tourism began and people flocked to the miles of beaches here with their crystal waters and all year round sunshine. 

Today, there are three distinct parts to the city: Poniente Beach, Levante Beach and the city centre with its old town.  

On Poniente, you will find luxurious apartments, a scattering of hotels and a very Spanish feel to the bars and restaurants catering to locals and second-home owners. 

Levante beach is renowned for its tourist scene with live music bars, ice-cream parlours, shops and entertainment.  

The city centre is where the residents go about their daily life as if there were not millions of visitors arriving every summer.  At the beach end of the city is the historic old town with some great tapas bars, classic and modern restaurants and bars and a plethora of shops for everything and anything you could think of.

Famous for its skyline which has been likened to Dubai, Miami Beach and Manhattan, it boasts over 300 skyscrapers, each having their own green space around, the most famous of which is the Intempo building.  Its reputation as one of the party capitals of Europe is in truth the Levante beach area where you can party all day and all night.

Dining out in Benidorm is a feast for the senses.  With delicious seafood, traditional tapas and paella sitting snugly alongside modern European and Asian cuisine.  You will always find a little of what you fancy in Benidorm.  As in most parts of Spain, there are menus del dia for less than 10€ but there is also a good selection of “splash-out” restaurants for 50€+ per head.
