Where I stayed
Fifty Brits wearing Christmas hats and tinsel descended on Benidorm's Old Town and Tapas Alley to sample the Cava and tapas on offer and to sing Christmas Carols. We weren't a brilliant choir, some people even turned away but most seemed to enjoy the injection of British Christmas spirit along the Bars.
It was a glorious day and the beach was busy with sunworshippers, bathers and sandcastle wizards. Nothing could be better than sitting in a bar across from the ocean amongst a crowd of happy people whose singing got worse as the day progressed.
Fortunatley we were saved by a very good guitarist in The Guinness bar on the front where we all ended up and the carol singing stopped in favour of 60's classics like the Kinks and 'Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon' and the odd Irish rebel song. We were jolly wild rovers indeed!!!
