Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

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.

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

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.

"Make A Smile" - Helping the Forgotten

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

Today I travelled up into the mountains to Relleu, the next village after Finestrat and visited a special unit which is home to 24 mentally handicapped adults. The unit is set in 10 hectares of land – which is slowly being regenerated by a team of volunteers, headed by Tony Grande of The Calpe Bed Centre, to who I take my hat off and have the greatest of respect. The setting is so peaceful and beautiful, although rather challenging to find as it is tucked away on the outskirts of the village. Initially the unit was built to house young offenders and rehabilitate them, but the villagers caused uproar at the prospect and it never got off the ground. Eventually the unit was handed over to a charity and it has become home to those that many often forget about – whether consciously or not, as it is easier to pretend that they do not exist and get on with our busy lives.

WHEN IT comes to drag shows in Benidorm, Miss Coco Chanel is often referred to as the "Queen of Visual Comedy" - and it´s not hard to see why, performing an amazing 12 costume changes within a spectacular one hour show! The man behind the many faces of Coco is Colin Brown – a funny, energetic and extremely talented artiste. He performs a full mime comedy drag show – with emphasis on the mime as he readily admits his voice would empty a room in 10 seconds flat!
