So the curse of rowdy and reckless Stag & Hen groups is not just confined to Benidorm I see! In an attempt to change the image of Blackpool, the tourism boss Graham Cain said that "Stag & Hen parties should go somewhere else", suggesting Manchester and Liverpool as alternatives! However, unsurprisingly following a backlash from businesses associated and reliant on the tourism industry, he quickly retracted his statement and said he meant that "unruly behavior and inappropriate dress" should be clamped down on as it is putting off visitors to the resort.

Benidorm a winner for Winter sun

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

According to a Winter Sunshine report carried out by the Post Office, Spain, Bali and Portugal have been crowned best value destinations for Winter Sun.....which comes a no surprise to us here! Apparently the place to avoid if you are looking for value for money is Dubai – where a glass of wine can cost more than 7 GBP! The price of alcohol here in Benidorm is most definitely a great pull for many, where a pint can easily be had for 1.50 euro or even 1 euro if you look – especially during the low season.

The Benidorm Moors & Christians parade took place yesterday evening – giving the locals a chance to raid the dressing up box once again! It was a slightly haphazard start but eventually they got into their stride – with each group followed by a local band. But not all of the bands were from Benidorm – some came from as far afield as Parcent and Alicante.

There is mixed reaction to the story that Benidorm is out of control – obviously depending on who you talk to! Following the publication of "that picture" in the Spanish press the Town Hall have announced that they are looking to introduce some kind of by-law to curb this excess and lewd behavior in public.

Benidorm is renowned for being a party capital 24/7 and what attracts many here – especially Stag and Hen groups. I, along with many, welcome holiday makers to indulge and have fun – but there is a limit to what is acceptable.
