User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

As promised, the Mirador at the top of the Old Town re-opened today in time for the town’s annual fiesta celebrations. Although not completely finished people were allowed up to see the works that had been done following the closure back June, right at the beginning of the summer season causing much controversy. The excavation has unearthed some important ruins, which have been left intact and surrounded by glass and railing so that everyone can view them.

Summer season comes to an end

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

We’ve been incredibly fortunate with the weather here this year. On Thursday, the last day of October, people were still swimming in the sea and sunbathing on the Levante beach… must be a first! We welcomed the first day of November in with blue sunny skies over the resort, temperatures in the mid 20’ and Saturday’s rugby final was watched by hundreds on the mega poolside screen of the Marina hotel wearing summer clothes. Terraces up and down Calle Gerona were also full of locals and holidaymakers, cheering England on… sadly to no avail in the end.

Benidorm did Moors & Christians

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The colourful Moors & Christians parade took place in Benidorm on Saturday evening – following in the footsteps of Altea, which took place two week ago. Residents and holidaymakers lined the entire route – standing shoulder to shoulder, vying for a good spot to watch from. There were plastic chairs which were all occupied until the ticket inspectors came and many suddenly vacated them when they realised that they had to pay - €5 each.

Still missing in Benidorm

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

More than 18 days have now passed since the disappearance of 68-year-old British holidaymaker Phil Pearce in Benidorm – and currently there are still no concrete leads on his whereabouts. It is his first time to the resort and he was staying for a week at the Gemelos 26 on Calle Derramador in the Rincon de Loix, popular with many Brits. He left to go and buy tobacco on Monday 9 September between 4-5pm, taking some cash and nothing else – he did not have a mobile phone. The last confirmed sighting of Phil was in the early hours of Monday, September 9, leaving the National Police station on Carrer Apolo in the heart of the old town.

The ninth Benidorm Pride parade took place yesterday – what for many is the highlight of the entire week. 23 floats and 300 took part in this colourful and vibrant affair with an array of flamboyant and eye-catching costumes. Cars, vans, buses and lorries were converted into floats with mobile sound studio blasting out music to add to the carnival like atmosphere and the night finished with a Pride Party at the Julio Iglesias auditorium with some of Benidorm's top tribute artistes.

Harley Bikers Day

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

For the ninth successive year, the Eucalyptus Park in Albir has hosted the annual Costa Blanca Custom Bike Show – an absolute must if you love big shiny bikes! It is probably the biggest concentration of gleaming Harley Davidson bikes you will witness in one place and even if you’re not a biker, you cannot fail but be impressed by all the chrome on display! In addition there were also plenty of stalls, selling bikers related accessories, clothing, memorabilia, food plus a very busy bar and stage with live rock bands, making for a great party atmosphere.

Benidorm Pea Men arrested... while tourist assaulted for warning others

User Rating: 3 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The ‘mojiteros’ – illegal beach cocktail sellers, along with the pea men should be avoided at all costs here in Benidorm. Now thankfully there is one less gang after the National Police in Benidorm arrested five members of a gang that operated the pea game, fleecing holidaymakers out of thousands of euros every day. However, until a change in the law takes place, it is technically classified as a ‘misdemeanour’ here rather than a crime if less than €400 is involved. There are constant reminders not to stop and engage but sadly, reports surface daily of yet more fresh victims.

New scooter by-law in Benidorm

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Benidorm has passed a new by-law regarding electric scooters, Segway’s and yes, mobility scooters which rose in popularity after Madge appeared on one in the Benidorm series. The Councillor for Mobility explained that these new regulations will ensure the safety of both the users, pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. These fast moving electric vehicles will be banned from pavements with the exception of mobility scooters used by those who are disabled or with reduced mobility – obviously no one else should be using one anyway!

Crissy Rock - Back in Benidorm

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

One of Liverpool’s funniest exports has to be Crissy Rock and she’s back in Benidorm, accompanied by husband Julian to what she considers her second home. Crissy came here on holiday nearly 20 years ago and the very first venue that she performed in was Valentines – almost by accident. It is a place she holds dear and one to which she has returned, performing exclusive every evening at 10pm until mid-September! She packs the crowds in leaving everyone in stitches and although advertised as ‘adult humour’ there are plenty of younger ones in with their parents and grandparents. For those that do go and see her, you will realise how incredibly thoughtful of others she is when it comes to the bucket.

The Benidorm Sunbed scrum

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Summer is here and so is the annual competition between tourists to bag the best sunbathing spot! Many years ago, the Brits would ridicule the Germans in particular when on holiday over ‘towel gate’ – getting up at the crack of dawn to reserve their sun loungers with a towel around the hotel swimming pool. But it doesn’t just happen around the hotel pool… if you are ever up early then take a stroll down the Levante promenade and you’ll see the coveted front line already lined with chairs and parasols, with hardly any occupants to be seen!

‘AQUA” - Dazzling and Spectacular

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Benidorm Palace has once again surpassed itself with their new show ‘Aqua’ - which doesn’t need much translating as it is probably the one word that everyone knows. Each year they produce a new jaw dropping show and you cannot believe that it can be topped, but somehow, they just do!
Quite how they manage to get water cascading down onto the stage without getting the audience soaked in the process is a feat in itself and done in a truly spectacular manner - the imagination is mind blowing and my goodness, so dramatic like nothing ever seen before.

Benidorm's Weekly Market

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Virtually every Spanish town holds a weekly outdoor market but here in Benidorm we are doubly lucky, with not one but two and both on twice a week – every Wednesday and Sunday. The one most popular with holidaymakers is in the Rincon de Loix, just past the Pueblo and Helios hotels. The other is past the tram station in the old town, in the Foietes car park opposite the Guillermo Amor sports stadium. The stall holders are set up by 8am and generally there till around 1:30/2pm, so you can still manage a lie in if you’ve had a heavy night out!
