Albir beach - an alternative to Benidorm

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

If you fancy a change from Benidorm's busy Levante or Poniente beaches why not try Albir beach ... just a stones throw away - even the No 10 bus goes there from Benidorm. Albir beach is wedged between Benidorm and Altea and the beach is ap. 600 metres long... from here you can see as far as Calpe - the "Penon de Ifach" or Rock of Calpe - a reference to the Rock of Gibralter can be clearly seen.

Who watched the last series of ITV's "Benidorm" where two of the characters were arrested by the local police for "frolicing" on the beach ? Well I certainly laughed at the far fetched scene as I imagined most other viewers did ... Benidorm is certainly not Dubai!!!! How wrong can you be ...... then  following a post on twitter I decided to investigate the matter.

Easyjet's new pricing structure.

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Easyjet have launched to much fanfare a "new" concept to ticketing ..... the "Flexi Fare" !!!!! Now I remember some 20 years ago that British Airways use to have fully flexible fares so Im not too sure which smart ass thought it was a new idea. Back in those days you even use to get a FREE Daily Mail newspaper, sandwich, drinks - including alcoholic ones and you didn't have to pay extra for baggage!

If you walk all the way up to the point - where the Levante and Poniente beaches meet you get the most beautiful panoramic view of both bays.At the top is a very pretty white and blue tiled gazebo with seating which is a lovely backdrop for a photo ... and at the front is the "Love Padlock"monument.  This tiled gazebo area was used as a "restaurant" in the last episode of the ITV  Benidorm comedy series

"Typical" sight in Benidorm ... a Naval Vessel!

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Went for a walk along the Levante beach this morning and there, moored just off the shores was a sight to defy belief... a monsterous American Warship. The holidaymakers sunning themselves on the beach didn't know what to make of the scene - certainly an alternative holiday snap of them in swimwear with a Warship as the backdrop! The "CG64 USS Gettysburg" from the VI fleet has docked for a 4 day break.

Today and last Sunday were 1st Holy Communion weeks across Spain. Many people were rubbing their hands together at this annual windfall .... from retailers selling the "mini bridal gowns" or sailor outfits for the boys to restaurants and photographers! Yes its BIG business here - infact, it really appears to be a trial run for the  wedding in 10-15years time ... by which stage the poor parents may possibly have paid off the bank loan!

Driving in Spain.

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

With the influx of visitors to our shores at this time of the year this creates alot of extra traffic on the roads - especially in holiday hotspots such as Benidorm ..... a welcome site for the police! Whether you are hiring a car here or driving over from the UK there is one particular rule you MUST remember. NEVER EVER drive in flip flops, croc's or anything without a back - it is illegal and subject to a hefty fine.

If you are fed up of pie & chips and fancy a taste of real Spain then head to "Tapas Alley" in the Old Town. It is so named because the entire street is made up of tapas bars! The biggest and busiest is  "La Cava Aragonesa" which has a constant stream of visitors - both locals and tourists. The word "tapas" is derived from the Spanish verb taper - meaning "to cover".

Mobilty scooter safety in Benidorm.

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Following an article in the British Press about the menace of mobilty scooters I decided to look into the matter. A pensioner in the UK was seriously injured when a mobilty scooter crashed into her - leaving her with a broken hip and badly fractured thigh bone. She is now calling for a change in the law to force drivers to take out insurance. This was actually raised back in 2004 by a LibDem MP who stated that "motorised wheelchairs need to be governed by more regulations.
