Nature's Treasures

Home to a variety of coastal and marine life

Benidorm's beaches aren't just a place to relax and have fun. They are also a natural treasure trove, home to a wide variety of marine and coastal life. Conservation is a priority here.

Posidonia meadows

On the seabed of Benidorm's beaches there are extensive meadows of Posidonia, a marine plant that plays a vital role in the health of our seas. They are the lungs of the Mediterranean Sea! They absorb CO2, produce oxygen and act as a cradle for marine life.
This aquatic plant is also responsible for the incomparable quality of the air on Benidorm's beaches. Clean and fresh, making it easier to breathe, relax and recharge your batteries.

European sea birds, dolphins and turtles

Not only under water, but also on the cliffs of the Serra Gelada Nature Reserve, nests the European Storm Petrel, an endangered bird. In the sea, on the other hand, dolphins are sighted every year and, in recent years, we have seen the loggerhead turtle, which has chosen Benidorm's beaches to lay its eggs.

Benidorm's beaches: cool places during the heat waves

Benidorm's beaches are much more than just a place to sunbathe. They also act as a shield against the effects of climate change, offering cool spaces during heat waves and helping to slow the rise in sea levels.

Benidorm's beaches are our allies in the fight against climate change, let's take care of them!
