Decided to take the long walk from Benidorm to Finestrat. We had stayed in the Gran Hotel Bali many years ago with friends and I remembered it had a nice little bay so off I went.

You can see the Gran Hotel Bali in the distance, its the one that looks like a rocket, considering we were staying at the furthest opposite end in Benidorm it was going to be a good trek.

So eventually I came across Benidorm old town, I love this area especially at night its always buzzing.

The views back over to Levante Beach from the top of the old town were amazing

So looking across the opposite side of Levante Beach I could see the second leg of my journey, a walk along the Pontiente Beach.

On the map below you can see where I started on the far right, and the circle is where I've taken the following photo and the arrow the direction Ill be walking.

Turn around for a quick look back at where I've come from.

Almost at the end now

Along this end of Pontiente Beach was lovely, the properties were not the same as Levante beach being a lot shorter in height.

Well I found the turn off me and Graham used to take and was almost at the end of this walk.

The Hotel Bali, must take a look inside for old times sake.

Ah memories, it was as if I had just been there yesterday.

A good place to stop and have a drink I think.

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm to Finestrat walk  C360_276

Phew a nice bit shade I was cooking

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm to Finestrat walk  C360_278

I noticed they had more bars and restaurants outside the Bali than they did last time I was here

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm to Finestrat walk  C360_279

Back to the walk, almost at Finestrat bay

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm to Finestrat walk  C360_280

Made it 👏Now one of the first things you notice when entering the bay is the large hotel under construction in the middle of this photo, the grey one, well their is an interesting story about it.

Spain, Costa Blanca, Benidorm to Finestrat walk  C360_287

Many years ago when we stayed here we were chatting to a bar owner that told us the company that built this hotel had placed extra floors on the top that they didn't have permission for, they were told to take them down or stop working, guess what they did Evil or Very Mad

Wow I was sitting on a wall thinking back to the last time we came here, my daughter and friends son used to play in the sand while we sat at the bar watching them, she is 16 now, how quick does time go by.

That was excellent, Daryn  -  your words & pics did a great job of describing the whole of Benidorm for me  -  thank you.  clap   

I think if I ever go there (not that I'm planning to!!), I would choose to stay on the Poniente Beach side, close to the old town.

Thanks again  -  a well deserved rep on the way.
