La Vuelta in La Nucia

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The second stage of La Vuelta was from La Nucia, a town 10 kilometers from Benidorm.  The town has a market on a Sunday morning, but today the streets were full of cyclists in their outfits, not only  the racers but the spectators as well. If you decided to rob a bank in the Alicante region, today would have been a good day. All the Guardia Trafico, Guardia Civil, National Police and Local La Nucia police were all participating in the opening!

ITV Daybreak broadcast from the Sol Pelicanos Poolside

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

On Monday the turnout was fabulous at the Sol Pelicanos Hotel - the fictious Solana Resort from the hit ITV comedy "Benidorm". The Thomson reps did a great job to ensure a large turnout of holiday makers - perhaps the promise of a pool side breakfast was too good an opportunity to miss. I bet many had been up half the night producing their "Hello banners" to wave ...

Monday morning was the first live broadcast from Benidorm's Levante beach. Although it was an early start - in fact it was still dark when we arrived at 6.30am there was a great turnout. Amongst the crowd there was a group of ex-pat pensioners from The Companians Club - including Victor Evans, the clubs oldest member at the grand age of 89.

Ryanair hand luggage anomaly

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

My husband flew back home to Alicante from Manchester T2 yesterday with Ryanair and was rather suprised by the large vertical banner ad on display at the exit of the Biza Duty Free shop.Being a regular air passenger on Ryanair, normally traveling between London Gatwick and Alicante I am aware of the strict hand luggage policy that I always adhere to - that or face the extortionate £40 excess charge for being over the weight or size.

Sun advice when in Benidorm

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

With the full force of the Spanish sun it is important to take some precautions in order to cope with the hot weather.Stay indoors or in the shade during the hottest part of the day ... as the song goes "Only mad-dogs and English men go out in the midday sun" ... which is apparent if you pass by Levante Beach at 1pm. All the locals and Spanish go in for a prolonged lunch and siesta and not resurface until after 4pm.

After a complete renovation, the "Riviera Beach Hotel" has just re-opened its door to customers as an adult only hotel - no under 16's. What a brilliant idea ...It is located in the heart of the Benidorm entertainment district on the Avd. Derramador ( the road leading from the Sunday market to the Indoor market). The Sol Pelicanos and Morgan's Tavern, aka Neptunes Bar, both featured in the ITV hit series "Benidorm" are both within 100 metres.

Benidorm Theme Parks the cheaper way!

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

One of the great things about Benidorm is that there is so much to do once here. The beautiful sandy beaches are the first stop and probably the reason why most visitors come here - but Benidorm is also home to 3 theme parks: Terra Mitica, Aqualandia and Terra Natura/Aqua Natura. All are easily accessed whether you have a car or not and serviced by a regular bus service from the centre of town.
