Viva Espana: Benidorm Pride!

Remember Benidorm? The charming beach town in Spain? The bitter rival of Sitges and its main competitor for the title of gay summer capital of Iberian peninsula? Well, Benidorm is determined to close this summer with a bang – pardon our French, with pride! And not just any pride, but with Pride parade!

This year, Benidorm Pride will take place between September 5th and 11th – it’ll be a week of festivities in this charming coastal town. The actual parade will take place on September 10th on Playa Levante (huge open air party goes without saying). The idea behind the Pride is 3 Fs: Fun, Friendly and Flirty! In addition, if you decide to visit Benidorm during that time (courtesy of yec.com), you can enjoy in its many gay bars and clubs!
