One of the largest fiestas of its kind in Spain is held in Guardamar on the Costa Blanca South. It is watched by thousands from all over Europe.

Some of the best beaches in the world are on the Costa Blanca Coast. With an average 320 days a year of sunshine it is a swimmers paradise. The Mediterranean has lots to offer, safe blue flag beaches, with all the facilities you would expect, toilets, showers, cafe bars and water sports. They can be busy but not overcrowded and most have lifeguards. There is a choice of two airports with a third opening next year. Holiday makers not only choose to come out for one or two weeks, but due to cheap flights being available some come for long weekends as well. Food and drink is still much cheaper than most other European countries.

How do you explain one of the noisiest and longest fireworks display I have ever seen and heard. It lasted just over an hour and the buzzing in my ears lasted another hour. But it was worth it as this was pyrotechnics at its best. Who knows what it cost Elche city to put on this display as it was massive and was all over the city. Perhaps the video can show you better than I can explain it to you. I have had to reduce the volume as it was distorting the sound quality. Or as my friend at the end of the video “it was just a big bang” but his wife’s comments were “just fantastic”.

At the end every one of the Spanish people started singing a hymm and the church bells started ringing, remember this was in the early hours of the morning.
