If you are looking for a cultural getaway, at Grand Luxor Hotel you have the advantage of being able to alternate it with a visit to the Terra Mitica theme park, which you will have access to during your stay. Furthermore, you will be staying in a hotel for children in Benidorm that has a kid’s club and games area.
Read on the beach
If you love reading, then you’ll be interested in this new initiative called “Booking Books“. The idea came about from the Library Network and the Historical Heritage and Tourism Departments.
It is innovative in Benidorm, which offers you a campsite or a hotel for readers. The establishments that have joined this initiative offer you the possibility of reserving one or several books for you to read during your holidays.
This responds to the need to cater to the wide range of visitors that come to this traditional Spanish tourist destination. Copies can be reserved in advance or during your stay.
Being able to offer the advantages of reading to everyone is a key concern for the Library Network, in order to be a space for learning, information and leisure. Therefore, they emphasize the importance of a reading service aimed at tourists.
Furthermore, this does not prevent you from enjoying the services provided by conventional libraries, such as the Biblioteca Central, Foietes and Rincón de Loix libraries.
On the other hand, the beach libraries have been around for almost 20 years. This successful initiative is pioneering not only in Spain but in Europe. There are two beach libraries, one located on Levante beach and the other one on Poniente beach. There are free newspapers, magazines and a wide range of books are offered.
Since its inception, this service has been continuously provided to hundreds of thousands of visitors. The beach libraries only close between 15 January and 15 February in order for the beaches to be cleaned, as this requires the structures to be dismantled.
The project came about with the aim of bringing together the concept of beach fun, reading and more broadly, culture in general. It is about bringing books closer to readers, no matter where they are and without their nationality being an obstacle.
The Levante beach library is 352 square metres and has seats for 125 readers. In addition, there are chess tables, which can be used to play, even if opponents do not speak the same language.
There are around two thousand documents in Valencian and Spanish, but also in English, German, French and Dutch. This includes CDs and DVDs to widen the offer to film and music. The Poniente beach library is 125 square metres, has 50 chairs and 750 books.
At the Grand Luxor Hotel you have somewhere nice to stay close to the Terra Mítica theme park and Benidorm offers you the possibility of reading on the beach, an activity you can start doing with children.
