Segway Tours in Benidorm

User Rating: 3 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar inactiveStar inactive

There are many ways to explore Benidorm – but one of the most fun and unusual has to be upon a Segway. Unlike the mobility scooter, which you sit on and is almost out of control in the resort – the Segway is a 2-wheeled electric vehicle which you stand on. The local police even have Segways and can be spotted whizzing around the promenade –  because they stand elevated they have the advantage of spotting anything untoward happening!

Love dressing up - then come to Benidorm!

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star inactiveStar inactiveStar inactiveStar inactiveStar inactive

If you like dressing up then Spain, and in particular Benidorm, is definitely the place for you. Hardly a month seems to go by without some sort of excuse to raid the dressing up box – and this phenomenon appears to have rubbed off onto the Brits too. There is one fiesta after another throughout the year- and obviously no occasion here is complete with fireworks!

"El Faro" - the lighthouse in Albir

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

If you enjoy walking, and I don´t mean from bar to bar, then this area must have some of the most beautiful and varied landscapes within the Costa Blanca. The promenade on the Levante beach front is popular with many, as is the walk to The Cross - but if you want to try something a little more challenging then I suggest you head out to Albir. You can catch the number 10 bus - only about a 15 minute ride and a 1.50€ fare, but culturally and visually about as far removed from Benidorm as you can get! Albir definately isn´t a party town - if you want late night drinking and clubbing then stick to Benidorm.

Benidorm nightlife

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

One of the attractions to Benidorm is the fantastic nightlife on offer - there is something for everyone regardless of age. Whether you are looking to enjoy the fantastic atmosphere of one of the many tribute acts, or just relax with a drink in hand while listening to the lapping waves on the beach, Benidorm is the place for you. Luckily the children in bars fiasco seems to have died down - something that was worrying not only those coming over on holiday but more so, the bar and club owners. It was NOT a rule that they had made up but one that was being enforced in a few situations by police from the Generalitat in Valencia. No-one is any clearer on the ruling but children are being allowed into the majority.

Cruise the Med aboard a private yacht

Pulling into Alicante harbour

A yacht conjures ideas of billionaires in the south of France sipping on the finest champagne while being waited on hand and foot. But why should this level of luxury be limited? Not having come up trumps on the EuroMillions I wondered whether I would ever have that opportunity – but as luck would have it, last week I stepped aboard our very own private yacht in Alicante for an afternoon of indulgence with family and friends. The Alma – rather like pets, all boats have names too, lives in Alicante harbour and is moored virtually in front of the Casino Mediterraneo.

Benidorm Booming!

With the somewhat questionable British weather this Bank Holiday weekend, holidaymakers are flocking to Benidorm in their droves. With the central heating going on in many UK homes it is no surprise to hear that figures released by comparison site "TravelSupermarket" show a 164% rise in the number of Brits heading this way.

Day Trip to Denia

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

With the bright lights, cheap beer and alluring beaches of Benidorm, the coastal resort of Denia looms in the shadow of its more popular cousin. However, 80 minutes north up the Costa Blanca lies this hidden gem laden with cultural delights. Being a Londoner, I expected the price of a 90 minute ride on a state-of-the-art, fully air-coned tram to exceed my budget for both dinner AND a night on the town, but was shocked when the price for two of us to get there and back didn´t even top 10 euros - we got on in Altea, a little further down the line from Benidorm.

Camping in Benidorm - not only for holidaymakers

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

Most dream of a life in the sun – to up sticks and make the move. The great thing about Benidorm is that there is something to suit all budgets and tastes, not only for holidaymakers, but also those choosing to move here permanently. Yet with property prices still very reasonable here and an abundance of rentals it is surprising how many ex-pats opt for life on a campsite. The biggest and most popular in Benidorm is Villamar, followed by El Raco. Now I openly admit that I did have preconceived ideas of what to expect as I was invited on a tour, like I am sure many others have - last chance saloon types scrapping by on their last euros on a hi-di-hi type site. As Jim Trott from the Vicar of Dibley use to say, no no no, no - but in this case there is no yes at the end!

Once again Benidorm was buzzing with excitement as the resorts favourite hotel Manager, Joyce Temple Savage, aka the lovely actress Sherrie Hewson popped back. She came over for a few days this week, accompanied by an ITV film crew to do some recording. However, it was not for the ever-popular comedy series "Benidorm" which she is in, but for the "Lorraine" show, part of the breakfast program Good Morning Britain.

Benidorm now sits alongside London and Paris as being one of the few European destinations to have "small cell" 4G antennas installed. In fact, Benidorm is the first city across the whole of Spain to benefit from this new technology. Holiday makers will be able to send pictures via social media even quicker now!

Hidden dangers on Benidorm´s Levante beach

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

Levante beach is one of the reasons why millions of people choose to come to Benidorm on their holidays - understandable with its miles of golden sand. In the busy Summer months the beach is packed with holiday makers - sometimes its a struggle to find a square metre of sand to place your towel! Its shallow waters and gentle slope into the sea make it a favourite with families but a word of caution. Just 20 inches beyond the shoreline lies a mile long stretch of rock mass hidden beneath the water. It is known locally as "El llosar" - the rock.
