User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Everyone knows of, or about, the British Square in the Rincon de Loix – but did you know that there is another heading into the Old Town? Nestled more or less behind Burger King on the Levante promenade, it is a delightful square with some great traditional British bars and cafes for those that are missing the creature comforts of home. You won´t find loud music or flat screen TV´s blaring out football or other sporting events here. It is a quite corner which attracts Brits by the dozens, where you can sit down and relax in a peaceful tranquil environment – ideal if you are on the beach and need a break.

The ¨Magic Natura´ holiday resort, based alongside Terra Natura Wildlife Park in Benidorm is now open.

I popped along over the weekend to have a look around and WOW - to say I am impressed is an understatement. From the minute you enter the Polynesian style complex you´ll be hard pressed to fault anything.
