As I understand it, gleaning Spanish forums like Caranx.net, the beach 'Playa de Levante' in Benidorm is closed to anglers due to the hordes of bathers, jetskis, water-skiers, windsurfers, mating couples, ravers and hawkers that frequent the place nearly 24 hours a day. That leaves the 'escollera' or breakwater in the port, which gets crowded with beachcasters at night where all sorts of stuff can be caught, from bass to giltheads and even angel sharks, according the locals. The lack of personal space can be intimidating for someone not used to the 'social side' of fishing in Spain. In the Rincón de Loix area, in front of the cable-ski platform, either early morning or at nightfall, you can try spinning with poppers, minnows etc for bluefish (anjova) and leerfish (palometón), which are so aggressive they'll chase a rap right to the shore and beach themselves in the process. Bluefish, it should be said, have a mean set of chompers that can cause serious injury if you don't use forceps/pliers, so beware. I don't think licences are required for shore fishing, the valencian government website only mentions licences for 'pesca desde embarcación' (boat fishing) and pesca submarina (spearfishing, without oxygen tanks of course).
