Exploring Benidorm – Clubbing Holidays
However green and pleasant it may make the countryside, another potential washout of a summer means disaster for those looking to catch some sun on a budget in their precious week or so of holiday.
Whether you’re a last minute, spur of the moment holiday booker, or someone who plans meticulously for months before you get on a plane, really good deals are available if you know what you’re looking for.
For those on a tight budget looking for lively bars, and clubs that stay open until dawn, some of the famous clubber’s paradise resorts, with astronomical entry prices, have placed themselves out of the reach of the average holidaymaker. However, a clubbing holiday in Benidorm on the cheap is the perfect alternative. With the more high-profile clubs attracting some of the biggest name DJs, and entry prices being a reasonable 30 euros or so, including freebies (usually a drink, and a club promotional item, such as a t-shirt), even going out every night of a week-long stay won’t require bottomless pockets.
Most of Benidorm’s clubs are located around “The Square”, and each one has its own character. The highest concentration of hotels and self-catering apartments are also around the Playa Levante and Rincon de Loix area. With hotels ranging from bed & breakfast right up to two and four star, and even good campsites nearby, it’s possible to find somewhere to stay for every budget. Although be warned – the “luxury” campsites can often be more expensive than a comfortable no-frills bed & breakfast! If your accommodation isn’t all-in, then in terms of eating out, there are many restaurants and cafes in the club district, covering anything from local cuisine to good old British pub grub.
With peak holiday season running from June to October, the beaches are packed during July and August, usually with Spanish holidaymakers. If you want a slightly more relaxed break, but still with a lively atmosphere, then June and September will be quieter, and often have better deals as well. If you don’t trust your organisational skills to pull all the threads of flight, airport transfer, and accommodation together separately, then many of the major tour companies offer a clubber package deal, some even with discounted club entry, and inclusive party nights and excursions. Although these do tend to be a little more expensive, it does mean you can focus your attention on having a great holiday instead, and letting someone else do the organising!
