It doesn’t seem possible that the summer holidays are almost over – the shops are full of new uniforms and pencil cases and we are now counting down in days until our baby girl goes off to university (insert tears) But I don’t want to say to say goodbye to either the summer of my baby yet!
There are so many options for a summer holiday these days, with air travel now common place and a fraction of the cost it used to be, we can jet to the other side of the world and enjoy the sun a wealth of exotic destinations. But we don’t have to go that far to enjoy the sun or a beautiful beach, an affordable holiday in wonderful surroundings is only a short hop away in beautiful Spain.
The coast of the Costa Blanca is the home for what is possibly the countries most famous holiday resort – Benidorm!
With some of the finest beaches in Europe – Three major blue flag beaches to be precise. Acres of beautiful sand and blue sea what more could you want? OK so add swimming, diving, sailing and windsurfing happy now?
No? you want more? How about 4 family friendly theme and water parks?
If you want to admire a more cultural holiday with a taste of traditional Spain, then you only ever a short hop from a market, a small village or the amazing church of Virgin del Consuelo, with its blue dome and incredible interior.
Benidorm has been a holiday destination for
Spaniards since the railway came in 1914 with first tourists hostels being built in 1925, and when the airport opened in 1967 it opened it up to the rest of Europe!
And with over 40,000 hotel beds to choose from, you’re bound to find something to suit your taste and pocket.
So don’t race away to Asia or Caribbean – look a little closer to home and make the most of your precious holiday time, and consider Benidorm! It might just surprise you!!!
