I went here with my friend, it is very picturesque and we took lots of photos. You can see for miles across Benidorm and it looks so pretty at night with all the lights on.

The views are amazing. Restaurant located everywhere. So perfect when you wanted 5 minutes out to just relax, or grab a bite to eat

Walked to here most evenings while staying in Benidorm. Lovely views of both old and new Benidorm. Can get very busy. Lovely place to sit with a glass of sangria and watch the world go by. A 'must do'
