busy levanteWelcome to Benidorm in August, traditionally the month when the Spanish from Madrid also descend on the resort! The golden sandy beaches, along with the fantastic weather are what attract millions here every summer – and this year is no exception.

umbrellas on LevanteThe popular Levante beach, in particular at the Rincon end, is completely ram packed with holidaymakers and multicoloured umbrellas are virtually touching one another on the sand. Temperatures are in the mid to high 30’s and it’s a feat trying to find a space in the water to cool down without elbowing someone in the eye.

frontlineTo get a front line position here you need to be up early – places are already being pitched well before 8am. But walk down a bit and the mid section is about 60 metres wide, with plenty of room for everyone to spread out comfortably.


la calaAlternatively, if you want to relax in peace and quiet then head down to the Poniente or La Cala beach - it’s a million miles away from the hustle, bustle and noise. In fact, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were somewhere else completely instead of Benidorm.


almadravaFor the slightly more adventurous, head to one of the two hidden rocky coves – Almadrava and Tio Ximo. They take a little effort to get to – those with mobility issues should probably give them a miss but here you won’t find hordes of tourists.


benidorm lifeguardPlease pay attention to the lifeguards – failure to adhere can result in a hefty fine. With so many people their job is difficult enough and remember, they are just looking after your best interests and safety. If you have a medical emergency then head to the candy strip huts – they also have defibrillators there.

News Snippets

  • Olive Oil +

    Prices of olive oil are expected to rocket as crops in Italy and Greece have been hit by bad weather. In some areas harvests are down by 60% and subsequently, wholesale prices have doubled from €3,000 to €6,000 a ton! But the saving grace may be Spain, where they had a bumper olive harvest...
  • That's crackers! +

    The Royal Mint are launching a gift range which will include 58 select items, one of which is a 'gold' six pack of Christmas crackers costing £5,000! But obviously for that price you are getting slightly more than a paper hat and plastic spinning top - you may be lucky to pull open a 1oz gold bar, 24 carat bullion coin or even an 18 carat gold diamond necklace!
  • End of the road +

    The last Ford Mondeo is expected to roll off the production line by 2020. The popular family car was launched in 1993 and was the epitome of the middle classes - with nearly 130K sold in the first year. Last year only 55K were sold across the whole of Europe hence the decision to stop production. But Ford takes the top slot for the UK's best selling car - with the Fiesta and in 4th place, the Focus model.
  • DIY closures +

    DIY store Homebase is set to close approximately 60 stores over the next few weeks, threatening more than 1,000 jobs. The chain currently has 250 UK stores, employing around 12,000 staff.
  • Chewing gum +

    A estimated £60 million a year is spent cleaning chewing gum off pavements - a startling amount. More than 100,000 tons are consumed every year, but many have no idea that it contains plastic. Now supermarket chain Iceland have developed a a new product called 'Simply Gum' - which is made from a sap called chicle, extracted from a tree native to Central America.
  • Powder ban +

    The Government are considering restricting air passengers on carrying powders in hand luggage under a new security clampdown. Baby powder, cosmetics and coffee may be limited to no more than 12 ounces. Australia, New Zealand and America have already introduced the restrictions.
