It´s hard to believe that exactly one year ago this week – on 28th November 2013, the first symbolic stone was laid for the new Benidorm casino! I doubt that anyone believed for a minute that it would be ready and open 7 months later, especially with the reputation of Spanish builders and their lax attitude. But credit where its due, the casino was ready and officially opened on the last day of July.

BA - surpringly cheaper than the "low cost" carriers

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

When choosing what airline to fly on the overriding factor is normally price, followed by departure times. I have just returned from a quick "Christmas shopping" trip to the UK – traveling from Alicante airport to London Gatwick on British Airways. Over the years I have used all the London carriers – Easyjet, Ryanair, Monarch, BMI (showing my age) and Thomson, but must say that BA wins hands down. It was pure chance that I checked, assuming that they would be far more expensive – but in fact they were substantially cheaper than Easyjet and Monarch when adding luggage and had more convenient flight times.

Today was the main event of the party calendar for Brits in BenidormFancy Dress Day, which always takes place the day after the official Benidorm fiesta ends.

The Benidorm fiesta finally came to an end today - Wednesday, with a grand float parade through the streets of the Old Town. There were more than 50 floats taking part and each and every one was spectacular. In comparison to last years parade you could tell that financially things are definitely improving - the floats were a lot more extravagant and lavish with costumes to match.

If you fancy a day out of Benidorm why not hop on the tram and head to Alicante. The newly electrified track makes it an easy and pain free way to get about – far easier than trying to drive then attempting to find a parking space, for which you´ll have to pay.

One of the most popular bars in Benidorm has to be Tiki Beach on the Levante front. Whenever you pass it is virtually always packed to the rafters, with people spilling out onto the road. Some people pass judgment on those having fun – but today I spoke to one lady who cannot speak highly enough of either Tiki Beach or the clientele! The lady in question is Marilyn Rogers – Social & Membership Secretary of the RBL Benidorm branch.

Benidorm comes alive in November – with the town celebrating five days of fiestas, starting this Friday. All events will be concentrated in the Old Town – where the streets will be transformed and embellished with floral decorations and Holy Artwork hanging from the balconies and daily parades. Religion plays a major part of the fiesta and almost every day there will be a mass held at the blue domed San Jaime church – located at the top of the Old Town on the Mirador and Solemn processions through the streets.
