This evening, Good Friday, saw the climax of the Easter Processions in Benidorm – with all of the brotherhoods from churches in Benidorm taking part. Spain certainly retains its traditions and cultural identity as would have been demonstrated across many towns and cities. The entire route was jam packed with spectators but some of the Brits on holiday were rather taken aback by the startling and to them, sinister looking costumes. However, theydo actually date back to medieval times...

Oh what a craic it has been here...with clear blue skies and temperatures in the 20´s, there was no stopping many taking to the streets of Benidorm today to celebrate St Patrick´s Day. Calle Gerona turned into a sea of green, including many of the shops, who had a roaring trade selling green wigs, t-shirts, tutu´s and hats. Plenty of bars embraced the occasion, with bunting, balloons, shamrocks and flags decorating their terraces.

Well we knew that the unseasonal warm weather couldn´t last and for the last couple of weeks it´s been blowing a gale, with snow even making an appearance inland, in particular around the Murcia region and on the ski slopes of Valdellinares, inland from Valencia. For those that believe it´s always summer-like here then think again – winter has well and truly arrived. The last week has been positively Baltic, especially in the early morning and as soon as the sun goes down – assuming that it has even bothered to make an appearance.Today we had a few hours around lunchtime then the grey clouds rolled in and temperatures quickly dipped.

What an incredible last day of the year it is here – vivid blue sky, sunshine, an abundance of people about on the promenade, what more could we ask. It´s hard to believe we are in December and in a few hours will be welcoming in 2023. The stage is already up on calle Bilbao and giant screens line the Levante promenade, ready to broadcast the countdown to 2023 from Puerta del Sol in Madrid and repeated an hour later from London

What a fabulous day it has been today – no chance of a white Christmas here with a vivid blue sky, sunshine and Spring like temperatures. The Levante promenade was awash with people at lunchtime, many taking a stroll, with a spattering of Santa hats whilst others just enjoyed a drink and were people watching. Those here on holiday probably couldn´t believe their luck how mild the weather is!

The spectacular end of fiesta firework display took place on Wednesday evening - as always lit from the Poniente beach. Crowds gathered up at the Mirador lookout point well before the scheduled 21:00 start for a birdseye view - and were not left disappointed! As they say, if there´s one thing that they do exceptionally well here then it´s their firework displays...

The Royal British Legion Benidorm & District 3489 branch held a short but moving act at The Poppy Tree along the Poniente promenade this morning to mark Armistice Day.

The morning was plagued by torrential rain and loud rumbles of thunder, but thankfully all stopped just long enough to take place.

Beach art

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Take a walk along the Poniente promenade in Benidorm, the wavy, multi-coloured one which won an award for its innovative design and you will come across yet another stylish art installation. This isn´t the first time that the town has bought art to the streets, and it certainly gets walkers, out on their daily exercise stopping to admire and photograph the striking pieces. They are certainly a talking point, with many stopping to look – if not work out, what the pieces symbolise.
