Calle Gerona ALL day ALL night – The street that never sleeps
Running parallel to the Playa Levante from the long established (quality) Spanish restaurant “El Meson – Cruz Blanca” in the south of the street not far from the old town, all the way to Morgan´s Tavern the famous cabaret bar, made yet more famous by that ITV comedy series and located at the far north end of the street in the Rincon de Loix.
Calle Gerona is without any doubt the street that never sleeps. For the weekender intent on eating big breakfasts, English lunches and drinking more than you know is good for you, then the street that cuts right through the centre of Benidorm´s Levante is where you will find it all, both day and night.
One half (North) offers a guaranteed lively break with show bars, sports bars and disco bars favoured by the British visitor looking for great value drinks plus home from home cooking all of which is available in abundance from 10am until 5am 365 days of the year. A pint costs from 1.25€ to 2.50€ depending on where you are and what is on offer, such as the superb and free entertainment. A belly busting plate of fish chips and mushy peas or an everyday Sunday roast will set you back little more than 5€.
For a quieter option where a big choice of dining options are available then the other half (South) of Calle Gerona will be your best choice. Here you will find superb long established Italian Pizzerias, fine Indian cuisine, quality Spanish restaurants and speciality grills for lovers of steaks. A world of food awaits you.
Staying on Calle Gerona to make the most of your weekend in Benidorm could not be easier with every type of hotel right on the street. Prefer to be hop from the lively bars, book into the very busy 3* Ambassador Playa or opposite the start of the street the new 4* Hotel Flash. Prefer to be nearer to restaurants, closer to the old town and away from the “package” holiday hotels? The traditional little 3* Los Alamos is ideal as a base and will not break the bank or for a 4* try the Diplomatic, quality from servigroup.
When time is short and you only have a few days break then staying in the hub of Benidorm either on or near to Calle Gerona will ensure that you enjoy what Benidorm is famous for. Fantastic value, plenty of choice, late nights and of course those stunning beaches to sleep of the night before!
