Benidorm – ‘Package holiday’ pictures
Kiss me quick hats, sunburnt Brits and package holidays. Welcome to Benidorm.
Blackpool on the Spanish coast. The Manhattan of Spain. But for every stag party supping sugary sangria there are outlets selling fine Spanish wine.
For every burger bar there is a Tapas equivalent. And for every nightclub there is a late night terrace playing more traditional music.
Now you might think those contrasts pay compliment to the alternatives and deride the expected offers of Benidorm.
But I like stag parties, burger bars and nightclubs as much as the next man.
The trick Benidorm has up its sleeve is the ability to combine them with a more laid back and quietly classier way of holidaying.
Add plenty of sun, glorious beaches and a relaxed atmosphere and you quickly realise Benidorm has more than meets the eye.
