Spain Guide


Alfas Del Pi Nightlife

Alfas is a peaceful resort compared with its frantic next door neighbour Benidorm. which is one of the Mediterranean's top party spots. You'll find plenty going on in the evenings in Alfas during the high season live music, concerts, fiestas but if it's a really wild night you're after then Benidorm's action packed town centre is only 10 minutes drive away.

One of the best times to visit Alfas is during the first week of July when the town's international film festival is staged in the Casa de Cultura. There's also a major jazz festival in October as well as a variety of classical and popular music concerts. Pop along to the Casa de Cultura or ask at one of the local tourist information offices for details of shows and concerts taking place during your visit.

No less than eight fiestas take place in Alfas during the year, one of the biggest being the annual "Feast of Holy Christ" from November 7th 10th. This is when the streets are transformed into a riot of cavalcades, processions, music, dancing and fireworks.

In the first weekend in August there are fiestas on the beach with more parades and street dancing. And on March 19th it's party time again when the local Spaniards celebrate the feast of San Jose.

Throughout the summer you'll find live music and entertainment in the local bars and restaurants. It's plenty for the "average" visitor but those wanting a night (or more) on the wild side, it's Benidorm which offers the steamier Nightlife sex shows, a thriving gay scene, all night clubs and non stop partying all summer.

The Benidorm Palace offers a great night out with a first class international cabaret show and dinner included. It's excellent value and you'll be entertained by top variety acts from around the world as well as treated to a stunning display of flamenco dancing.

A fun family night out is right on your doorstep at the Castillo del Conde de Alfaz. This is unusual but superb entertainment with "medieval" knights giving a fantastic display of expert horsemanship and jousting. Find the impressive castle just outside Alfas on the road to Benidorm. Tickets include a medieval supper (which means you eat with your fingers!) and a trip to the terrifying mad monks dungeon (not for the faint hearted). There's a disco afterwards until the small hours.

Benidorm's Terra Mitica theme park now opens in the evenings when you can buy half price tickets to enjoy a range of entertainment in the park between 7pm and midnight, culminating in a firework display.
