Well it took us 13 minutes to walk to the corner of Levante beach from the Flamingo Oasis and 15 minutes to return so quite a walk to do every day

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 38111

but today our last day we wanted comfortable beds, ones where the heads raise and of course to see the sea

on the corner a cafe that Mrs Db liked the look of

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 38210

but the first job was to find that spot on the beach

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 38310

along here a bit lol

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 38411

oppposite this nice TUI hotel, I think it may be in the German Brochures

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 38510

yes here, this is what we have missed all week staying in the AI, we are beach people really

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 38610

The sun was warm but not to hot to require a parasol, so two beds cost 8 euro's, I personally think 12 euro's a day for beds and a parasol a bit steep

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 38710

but Mrs Db is now settled and happy, for me after taking a close shot of the island, I was going to do that walk in the sunshine again

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 38810

so off I go, Benidorm is a different place in the sunshine, perfect in April

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 38910

but must be heaving in July /August time

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39010

hope you can read these, I can blow them up if anybody needed them

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39110

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39210

It was 10.42am and the beaches are near empty

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39310

more prices, not sure whether I got some of the before on the previous walk

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39410

a very nice beach but has been swamped with high risers and must get very crowded in the high season

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39510

but I suppose many get cocooned in the AI resorts which is a shame

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39610

I saw plenty of police presence on my two walks but this time on a Segway lol perhaps the new speed cop for the mobility scooters

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39710

this time of the year choose whatever bed that takes you fancy

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39810

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 39910

joining me on this walk doesn't of course lose weight for you lol

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40010

a few restaurants

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40110

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40210

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40310

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40410

not a lot of comment on some of these as the pictures talk for themselves

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40510

but shows you some of the restaurants on the front

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40610

but here a fit class has started but expands beyond believe as you will see later

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40710

and what else can you say about this piece but magnificent

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40810

I guess the walk will bring back memories for some

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 40910

I did try to use the google street map but it seems to collapse halfway along, as an approaching van going in the other direction seems to lock it all up

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 41010

however, we have some of the current prices now

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 41110

I like this pic, sort of natural lol

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 41210

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 41310

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 41410

some of the work that goes into these sand scenes are mind blowing, this guy has two working fountains in this model

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 41510

coffee and Bailey fans lol

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 41710

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 42110

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 42210

This spot 4 days earlier had Merlin and a Dragon, hope it wasn't ruined by vandals but I guess the artists move on from time to time, it a shame things of beauty just have to disappear

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 42310

but we walk on

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 42410

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 42610

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 42710

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 43310

The beach is starting to narrow a bit now

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 43410

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 43510

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 43610

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 43710

this cafe is just before the headland and a lot of local people seem to be using it

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 43810

on the Monday it was misty an cloudy and although I walked to the Bagoda sort of place pictures were a waste of time

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 43910

so with it being such a nice day, I had to go back

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 44010

I don't know much of the history of this place but I can't remember it being here in 1970, I know a webcam picture overlooks it

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 44110

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 44210

a couple of people were playing, 'I had a dream' on reed pipes and were also selling them for 4 euro's lol

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 44310

It was a lovely place to stand and take in the views

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 44910

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 45310

oh course I went to the end of it

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 45610

and got the views of the bays

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 45510

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 45810

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 46311

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 46111

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 46610

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 46810

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 48010

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm, Levente Walk in the Sun 2013 48210

Great photos and the memories came back to me, the first time I went there was back in 1987 and remember standing at the end of that headland, also remember a fountain in the sea opposite it.

Have a rep really enjoyed that clap

Rep from me, too - great pics Delboy. clap


IF I ever visit Benidorm (which is doubtful), I think i would choose to stay near the Old Town or the other beach (Poniente?) - and definitely not AI!!!

Thanks HH, this was part of the MF team holiday which is under the Flaming Oasis Hotel review which was AI, so much of the story is in the hotel review itself under accommodation section
