Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Without a doubt, if you asked anyone who is the king of all snakes you would probably hear "The Cobra". Most peoples experiences of a Cobra are either reading or watching Rudyard Kipling's classic "The Jungle Book" or enjoying a cold bottle of Cobra beer! Talking of which, did you know that Jake Canuso, aka Mateo from the Benidorm series did a television commercial for Cobra beer just before he got the part 5 years ago?

With the bars brimming over every night in the centre of Benidorm you are spoilt for choice as to where to head. Many of the Stag & Hen parties head to the big themed bars which offer round the clock entertainment in the evenings - which is all FREE. If you went into any equivalent place anywhere around the world you would be charged an entrance fee but here in Benidorm there is no charge what so ever.

Benidorm busy thanks to the Brits

Despite the economic crisis or lack of direct flights,  Benidorm has remained relatively unaffected thanks to a new niche market - the weekend visitor. This is composed of two completely different types of visitors.Firstly there is the domestic Spanish market, with many coming from Alicante, Valencia, Madrid and Castellon on a Friday night and returning back on Sunday afternoon - resulting in hotel occupancy reaching nearly 100%.

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Inactive

When I first heard the term Flossy I had absolutely no idea what it was.... perhaps you are clueless too? Flossy is the brand name of the biggest Mediterranean footwear craze of the decade. Flossy shoes are basically canvas espadrilles and come in a variety of styles and most importantly colours - to me they look a bit like old fashioned house slippers or deck shoes.

Nispero harvest around Benidorm reduced

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

If you've ever headed inland from Benidorm, past La Nucia you may have wondered what the silver white meshes are that adorn the mountain-sides. As you approach Callosa d'En Sarria, where the popular Fonts D'Algar waterfalls are located you will be surrounded by the mesh greenhouses, which protect the crops of nisperos being grown. A nispero is a soft orange fruit which is like a cross between an apricot and plum.

Many of you may have wondered what the semi built concrete skeleton in the middle of the Avd Europa is.....well obviously a building site - it doesn't take a genius to work that one out with SIX cranes sitting idly by!

In the UK political correctness has gone mad and thanks to all the do-gooders there is NO justice system.  A drink driving footballer, who killed two young boys was let out of prison to attend his son's birthday party - he was sentenced to just over seven years and is due to be released this summer after serving just half of his sentence. Yet a looter that started a fire during the London riots was jailed for 11 years! Today's Mail

Benidorm Palace is usually on most visitors "to do" list - even locals go on a regular basis, especially when they have visitors.
