Now somewhat of a yearly tradition (although not an official event), British fancy dress day took place today (Thursday) …. always the day after the end of the official Benidorm fiesta. 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.

Football certainly brings out the passion and virtually every bar in Benidorm was broadcasting the England v Spain Women´s World Cup final today. The giant poolside screen of the Marina hotel was one of the best vantage points, attracting both the Brits and Spanish, including players from the youth Benidorm football teams. The beers flowed and the sun blazed down... but sadly, it wasn´t to be for England - this time!

Following on in the theme of the four elements, the new show at Benidorm Palace is called FIRE, with Aqua (water) and Terra (earth) already covered.

Well it really is anyone’s guess at the moment as to what each day will bring! There were heavy grey clouds and rain this morning yet come lunchtime, the holidaymakers were out as quickly as the sun – making the most of it… and going by the last week, who can blame them. The promenade was full, the bars were busy and everyone was happy.

The rain in Spain!

Goodness me…. It is foul yet again! We are certainly not used to this wet weather in Benidorm, especially at the end of MAY. When it rains it really rains here. Holidaymakers are wondering around aimlessly, wearing multi-coloured plastic ponchos or umbrella hats – and the only ones who are really benefitting are the shops selling them!
