Road Trip Alicante to Benidorm.
Yesterday we hired a car in Benidorm, wanting to explore beyond the coastal town and resort.
Car hire was from Europcar and was approx. 69€ (£54) for one day. Bargain.
[We also hired bikes earlier in the week from Monkey Bikes- 13€ for a days hire] http://monkeyrentbenidorm.es/monkey-bike/
We took the coastal road down to Alicante, where we stopped for a picnic lunch and a wander.
We wanted to drive the mountain roads, so took the CV-800 to Alcoi, then the CV-70 down to Benidorm. We wound our way up, over and through the mountains in a very sultry 35 degree heat. The landscape was mostly barren, interspersed with a very occasional villa, a derelict building or a small village.
The drive took approximately two and a half hours. It was a rugged, parched and lonely terrain- just us and the cicadas. We loved every minute of the drive. Certainly a vastly different Benidorm from it’s traditional, stereotypical boozy image. Get out and explore this beautiful Costa Brava region.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Two of my favourite things are playlists and road trips. Two of my second best things are books containing these things. I loved Mix Tape. I was reminded of and introduced to songs and bands from the late seventies/ early eighties that I had either forgotten about or hadn’t heard of. All through I had to stop reading and yell at Alexa to play a song by a particular band.
This weekend will see me compiling a ‘Mix Tape’ playlist and planning a mini-break road trip to Sheffield. And a much grander, maybe in the future, trip to Adelaide!
