If you think Benidorm is all booze, braces and brashness – then think again. If you travel out of season Benidorm turns into a much quieter, Spanish seaside town. It is not the most beautiful place in the world culturally but it has everything you need – immaculately clean beaches (cleaned every evening), clean streets (cleaned every evening), friendly and helpful locals, excellent cuisine (look for tapas bars in the Old Town), a beautiful promenade recently rebuilt for a few million Euros, outdoor free exercise equipment, and enough night-life to keep you going throughout your holiday. I would recommend staying on the 'old' side of Benidorm and explore all the little side streets, the new part is a bit soulless as yet but as time goes by I am sure it will gain more character. It is easy to drive there, there are buses and trams and a soon to be train to Madrid (if you are over 60 and you show your passport on buses, trams or trains you get a discount – no silly cards to mess around with). The weather is fab in Oct/Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar – Benidorm has its own micro-climate and gets around 300 days a year of sunshine. I love it!

PS. You can hire a mobility scooter for 40 euros a week which travel up to 25kms!
