Isla Benidorm - Review
Located 3.5 kilometre off the Benidorm mainland, the Benidorm Island (better known as peacock island for preserving wild peacocks) is one of the most popular places around the city. Looking like a sinking ship in the gorgeous blue Mediterranean water, the island is a short 20 minutes’ ride away from Benidorm’s ferry port.
The local organiser Aquascope arranges a diving and snorkelling experience along with their boat rides. You can swim with shoals of fishes, squids and starfishes or simply enjoy the view of the city from the sea. Seeing these gorgeous fishes in their natural surroundings, is an experience in itself! You can also spot dolphins swim around during the journey.
The island is not inhabited but has a restaurant and bar where you can stop by for a hearty meal and a drink. The fish& chips served here is a local favourite! Hike around the rocky pathways to spot wild peacocks and find your own favourite spot to lay down a picnic basket and enjoy the view. If you love photography, walk around the island to take some great photos. The skyline of Benidorm from here is magnificent, especially after dark when the city lights shimmers and reflect in the serene Mediterranean water.

Isla Benidorm, Benidorm Reviews
Loved it here. Go over on one of boats and included was an underwater tour around part of the island.
Fabulous boat ride to the island with great views of the resort and the fish through the glass bottomed boat. However once we were there the small cafe and toilets struggled to cope with the number of visitors and the path up to the view point can be steep so visitors need to be fairly mobile. When we were there it must have been nesting season and the seagulls were attacking people on their way up and several people came down past us bleeding from bird strikes and in the end we gave up on our journey to the top as losing an eye didn't seem worth the view.
Was a sun bathers paradise
Vvery stunning view's of the old & new town of benidorm the boat ride was amazing to peacock island and seeing the beautiful peacocks in a very spacious bird cage I would recommend to anyone . From my daughter susan
