Market 1Goodness me…. It is foul yet again! We are certainly not used to this wet weather in Benidorm at the end of MAY. A few brave stallholders set up for the outdoor market this morning but doubtful they would have stayed for too long with the rain - or infact if many customers braved going even. 

 Rain macsHolidaymakers are wondering around aimlessly, wearing multi-coloured plastic ponchos or umbrella hats – the only ones who are really benefitting from this weather are the shops selling them! Bars are hopeful of extra customers keeping out of the rain but when its really pouring, then many won´t even bother leaving their hotels!

Levante beachUnfortunately, the resort isn´t really geared up for this. We pride ourselves on the golden sandy beaches, water sports, theme parks, walks etc and in reality, there aren´t too many indoor activities, especially to entertain children.


Beer cratesEven for the adults, if you do not want to sit in a bar drinking all day or go shopping, then there is the bowling alley along the main avenida Mediterraneo (with the overhead halo lights) or ´Eye´s Down/Housey´ at one of the many bars here. 

RivieraThankfully we appear to have a few days of respite from the rain according to the weather apps but sadly no sign of any sun just yet. The only plus is that the reservoir in Guadalest should be filling up nicely, so fingers crossed, no water shortages this summer. The really bizarre thing is that the weather back in the UK is glorious...
