Situated on the eastern part of Benidorm is the district of Rincón de Loix, one of the most popular areas of the city. It is recognizable by its large beach front and abundance of skyscrapers that stretch towards the slopes of the Serra Gelada Natural Park. Rincón de Loix is located East of the Levante area of Benidorm, thus sharing a portion of the popular beach. It is bounded by Avenida de Europa on the west, and the Serra Gelada Mountain and Natural Park on the east. The district is famous for having the largest concentration of skyscrapers and high-rise buildings in the city.
‘Racó de l’Oix’ is the district’s name in the Valencian dialect, with ‘Rincón de Loix’ as its Catalan counterpart. Rincón de Loix is pronounced ring-con de lo-is, with the ‘R’ having a trill—or a rolling sound commonly used in the Spanish language—and an emphasis on ‘con’. ‘Loix’ is a Catalan word that is pronounced as ‘Lois’ or Lo-is in Castellano. Here you can hear the name (Rincón de Loix) spoken by a Spanish man:
LIFESTYLE AND ACTIVITIES
Rincón de Loix is a vibrant and modern suburb of Benidorm. It has a cosmopolitan atmosphere due to the varied mix of people and cultures present in the area. A “summer vacation” vibe is felt nearly each day of the year, made possible by the warm and pleasant Mediterranean climate. It offers plenty of leisure and recreational activities for all ages, as well as an excellent nightlife for which the city of Benidorm is widely popular.
Residents and tourists alike get to experience a seaside-metropolitan lifestyle, with skyscrapers and modern amenities standing alongside the Blue Flag Levante Beach. One can easily roam the bustling urban streets and enjoy many activities while still getting to feel the fresh, cool breeze carried from the sea and the nearby mountain.
People living or visiting Rincón de Loix may also notice a significantly more fun and vibrant ambiance as compared to other parts of Benidorm. This is because of the sheer number of amenities, services and attractions situated in and around the area. These consist of casinos, entertainment bars, nightclubs, hotels with large swimming pools, and of course, a wide array of restaurants offering local and
international cuisine. There are themed water parks nearby, as well as a cinema, mini golf course, and the famous Benidorm Palace.
Having one-third of Playa de Levante, the beach area of Rincón de Loix has become one of its major attractions. Boasting fine white-sand shores and clear waters, Levante Beach, one of Benidorm’s two largest beaches, is a recurring recipient of the coveted Blue Flag. This award—marked by a blue banner set on the beach—signifies that the recipient has passed the highest standards set by the organization in cleanliness, safety, water quality, service provision and respect for the environment.
The beach offers different types of water sports for beachgoers to experience. Scuba diving, snorkeling and water skiing are just a few of the water sports one can try out. Shops selling gear are situated around the beach area, with some even offering classes. For those who prefer more relaxing activities, there are plenty of Chiringuitos (beach bars) where beachgoers can enjoy a drink while watching the waves, and of course, the fine sands and sunbeds for hire are perfect for lounging, reading a book or sunbathing.
Benidorm is considered by many as the “nightlife capital” of Costa Blanca, and the part of Rincón de Loix bordering the Levante area, is home to some of the liveliest and fun entertainment in Benidorm. The district, which is already vibrant in the day, sparkles at night—with many of the bars, nightclubs and entertainment facilities packed with a variety of demographics. Whether it’s dancing, karaoke, bingo, bar-hopping or watching live shows, there is a place in Rincón de Loix for everyone’s preferred nightlife activity. Many of the bars offer trivia and quiz nights or dinner shows which are also suitable for families and children.
