Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Over the last few days, there has been much scaremongering in the UK press that Brits visiting Spain “must prove that they can spend at least €100 per day for the duration of their stay as well as a return flight and proof of accommodation”. Do not be put off booking by reading these alarming sensational headlines - 99% of those arriving at Alicante airport for their holiday to Benidorm will sail through passport control and be on their way on the AP7 motorway into the resort to enjoy all it has to offer.

Benidorm town hall commemorated Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee by lighting up the 20 meter tall ´Tecnohito´ tower, located at the end of the avenida Meditarraneo with a congratulatory message. It was a wonderful gesture and much appreciated by both British residents and visitors, who were here on holiday over the weekend.

Today (Thursday 18 November) is deemed “Brit Day” and Benidorm is certainly a magnet for those that like dressing up. British Fancy Dress Day always takes place the day after the end of the official Benidorm fiesta - which closed with a spectacular firework display last night. Calle Gerona was a throng of revellers in an array of outfits showing Benidorm is back in business!

Benidorm is BACK!

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

It´s been a long slow road but it certainly feels like the resort is getting back to some semblance of normality… albeit sadly with a number of restrictions still in place, namely the 1am to 6am curfew, no dancing and max 6 per table inside or 10 on an outside terrace. This was extended and will remain in place until September 6 but certainty hasn´t appeared to deter everyone as was feared. The neon lights that illuminate calle Gerona and the square have come back to life and live shows are back on in most places.

Many parts of the resort are at long last finally buzzing albeit not with the Brits we so want and need. Over half the hotels in Benidorm have re-opened but others are waiting for the UK government to give the go ahead for Brits to travel to Spain. Sadly it looks like it may take longer than initially hoped with a new revised date of July 19 now being announced for "Freedom Day" – strange that is 3 days before parliament goes on summer recess!

New build on beach front

How many of you, especially those that have been holidaying here in Benidorm for many years, admired the old rambling villa that once stood on the Levante beach near the cable ski?

Now after many years a new maritime information centre is due to be constructed on that prime 1,445 m2 plot, between the relatively new Oasis Beach Club bar and Hotel Brisa.

Armageddon hits Benidorm

The much promised and talked about renovation project of Benidorm´s infamous strip is underway. Resembling the aftermath of an earthquake – or as some amusingly said “a good Saturday night partying by the Brits”, the much-needed works have started. By the time international holidaymakers return to Benidorm many may well be pushed recognising the place they last visited some 12 months previously.
