Tips for Benidorm Outdoor Market

It is a very big market and if you have young children keep an extra eye on them. The rows between stalls are not the widest and the market gets very busy.

In the high season a break half way round is recommended as it does get very hot on the market.
Getting to And From Benidorm Market
The main buses run on the Rincon and the Mediterraneo. From the Rincon if you get off at KFC near the indoor market.
Where the medical centre is walk down that road and the market is just there.
Coming from the Mediterraneo, if you are heading towards the Old Town, jump off at the Don Pancho. Take the first right, directly at the top of the road is the market.
If you are walking it may be worth getting a taxi back in the high season. It’s a long walk around in very hot conditions and for the cost of a few Euros a taxi is a welcome break from walking.
