Exactly WHY would a tourist go there?

Pics are great though, thanks!

There are a lot of better beaches in many places in Spain, and even cheaper, but I think the people who goes to Benidorm do some kind of "social tourism", they're people who go on holidays to meet other people and to do a lot of things with them, not to be alone in an impressive beach. But that's only my guess.

Looks like a horror-vacation to me but it's kinda ridiculously impressive.

No, it is not lovely.

If you ever saw an old picture of what Benidorm used to be like in the 1920s and what has become you would scream of rage.

Still though, I have to admit that the amount of high buildings give you a... strange sensation (I won´t say I like them, but I can see other people liking them, somehow...).

these photos were taken a day before the "vuelta", a pro-bycicle tour from benidorm to madrid.You can see the start straight in one pic and all the cars who drove in front of the bycicles.
