The clubs and bars in Benidorm offer every type of entertainment you could imagine, from tribute acts to dance shows, comedians to singers.... then there´s the Legend, Sticky Vicki - I don´t know where or how to classify her! It caters to all tastes and ages - I defy anyone to say they are bored and can´t find something they enjoy.... but the best part is that they are all FREE to watch!

Stressful travel when holidaying in Benidorm

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

According to a survey carried out by a national holiday company, British holiday makers are finding going on holiday increasingly stressful! Unsurprisingly the main cause of this stress is the journey itself! Gone are the days when your annual holiday was a pleasure and delight... when you go to the airport nowadays, its all tension and anxiety thanks mainly to the likes of the low cost carriers!

Benidorm´s Moors & Christians Parade

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Hot on the trail of the Altea parade two weeks ago, it was Benidorm´s turn last night. The crowds were certainly out in numbers - the entire length of Calle Gambo was packed, with people standing shoulder to shoulder. There was a combination of local Spanish and holiday makers, but you could tell which was which. The Spanish were all very smartly turned out, with men in jackets and tie and ladies wearing their Sunday best.

Reciprocal healthcare in peril?

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Yesterday I watched an interesting documentary on BBC1 about "Health Tourism". It is a subject that has been widely debated in recent months both in the UK and here in Spain. The term health tourism refers to those that seek free hospital treatment knowing that they are not entitled to it.The rules in Spain changed on 1st September and more than 60,000 people in the Alicante province lost their right to free healthcare.

N332 road widening in Benidorm at standstill

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

For those that go on the N332, you will have been quite relieved when works started some years back on the widening of the Benidorm section. It is used by thousands daily, and more so since the toll rates went up on the AP7. Many now use it as an alternative to get to and from the airport, time wise there is hardly anything in it - I always use the N332 and save myself about 6 euros on a return trip.

Bingo in Benidorm

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

I bet you have often walked past bars in Benidorm with boards advertising "Eyes Down" and wondered why they don´t call it bingo... which is what it is. The reason is that it is illegal to gamble in Spain outside of authorized establishments. The bars hope that by writing "eyes down" it will fool the police - sometimes it works and other times not.

Iberdrola, the state electricity supplier here in Spain has no hesitation when it comes to cutting people off. Yesterday, a block of apartments in Alfaz del Pi had it power cut off  ... and according to one resident it is not just the "crisis" as its been going on for years.The main issue with the 132 block "Arabi Park, situated behind Arabi Park is that there is only one meter that serves the entire complex!

Christians parade in Altea

Last night was the turn of the Christians - but you could almost have mistaken it for a Christian Grey parade. Those girls that have read the book trilogy "50 Shades of Grey" will know exactly what Im talking about.... yes I admit I am one of the millions of women that have read them!The first 3 penyas were kitted out in leather and thigh high boots - thats the girls and the men had chains across their backs ...

It looks like security has become a top priority at long last. The PP senator for the province of Alicante, Augustine Almodobar has announced that they will present an "initiative to develop a specific security plan for tourist destinations" to Parliament. Almodobar is on the committee for Tourism and also spokesman for the PP party.

Moors parade in Altea

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Last night was the turn of the Moros (as they say in Spanish), to show off their stuff... and what a turnout. Spectators were already vying for front row positions along the route by 7pm - an hour before the official start time. I must say I laughed to myself when I saw people bring their own chairs - one man was pushing a set of 4 plastic garden chairs in a pram.
