“Top of the Day” as the Irish would say – and it certainly has been here in Benidorm today. The sky was blue, the sun shone, music played and the drinks flowed, as parts of the Rincon de Loix turned into a mini Ireland to celebrate the Patron Saint of Ireland – St Patrick.

Beni winters

Although some parts of Spain experience snowfall we are blessed here on the Costa Blanca to live in a microclimate, protected from the harsh weather most of the time. This certainly makes Benidorm a great choice for winter sunshine, especially with such a short flight time from the UK. With the promise of 3,000 hours of sunshine plus price comparisons, showing alcohol and eating out far cheaper, it is no surprise so many flock here.

An astonishing 40,000 Brits have attended this year according to town hall stats, transforming calle Gerona, which had been closed to traffic into a kaleidoscope of colours and costumes. What sets this event apart is the sheer diversity of costumes on display.
