Benidorm holidays promise fun and lively getaways throughout the year. However, a holiday to Benidorm during its annual Fiesta will provide some of the best parties and celebrations that Europe has to offer.

When and where

Benidorm is a holiday town situated on the Costa Blanca coast in the southern region of Spain, approximately 25 miles from Alicante. A favourite with holidaymakers from around the world, Benidorm sees millions of tourists flock to its sunny shores every year, looking for a slice of its laid back beach culture and fun party scene.

With the range of holiday deals on offer, Benidorm is an affordable holiday destination - meaning it has been a firm favourite for a number of years. The region sees a large number of tourist visitors year round, but those numbers increase significantly when the coveted Benidorm Fiesta takes place on 9-15 November 2012.

What To Expect

Spanning 6 fun-filled days, the Benidorm Fiesta is all about celebration. It was originally created to honour the two Patron Saints of Benidorm, La Virgen del Sufragio and Jaime Apostol.

The celebration features everything from live music to football, cultural exhibitions and religious processions, before culminating in a spectacular fireworks display.

The whole event promises to be a truly eye-opening experience that stimulates all of your senses; with stunning flower filled parades, eclectic street performers, delicious local cuisine and performances in the outdoor theatres.

One part of the fiesta which has earned enormous popularity with the British public, despite not being an official event, is the British fancy dress day. This year scheduled for Thursday the 15th of November, the fancy dress day sees tourists take to the streets in all manner of costumes and outrageous outfits.

In true Spanish style, the celebrations aren't for the faint hearted and the parties tend to last well through the night. Whether you're hoping to catch the midday dance exhibitions or are more in favour of the midnight musicals, chances are you'll find a party to suit your style at the Benidorm Fiesta, with cheap holidays and travel deals helping to make it an affordable trip.

Other Options

If you need a break from the fast pace of the fiesta, be sure to lounge on the stunning beaches, Playa de Poniente and Playa de Levante or check out the vibrant restaurant, shopping and entertainment scene.
