Unexpected – and literal – daylight robbery

THE Costa Blanca has a low crime rate but unfortunately that doesn’t mean that crimes never happen. Stephen Kermack’s £30,000 (€39,350) gold Rolex was stolen at 2pm in the afternoon while he was on holiday in Albir, his aunt Dorothy Kerslake told the Euro Weekly News. A woman whom he…

Varadero beach restaurant still making waves

HOWEVER little Villajoyosa wants the Varadero beach restaurant, it can apparently do nothing to prevent it being built. Bartrom SAU has all the necessary permits although, ironically, successive councils could have halted the project but failed to act. The Varadero problem began in 2009 when the Ministry of Public Works…

Albir loggerhead sea turtles’ get a second chance

Beware the beach vendors in Benidorm

The Benidorm sun comes out, beach umbrellas go up, sunbathers get thirsty, and Levante Beach hawkers sell to a captive clientele. These unofficial, unlicensed traders are breaking local bylaws, although this does not deter them. Nor does it discourage British tourists from buying their cocktails, sangria and mojitos or wedges…

ONE of the first vocal groups to be recognised as being part of the ‘Philly Sound,’ the Stylistics are performing together again and will be appearing at the Benidorm Palace on November 14, and tickets are now available for sale via the ticket hotline: 629 056 720 or 666 691…

On the right track

ALTEA residents living near the trenet line are so used hearing the hourly trains that they barely register the noise. But that sound has been missing for almost six months and many people did a double-take on hearing the train and its familiar hoot once more. A €9.2 million modernisation…

Alfaz del Pi to combat pesky tiger mosquitoes with drone technology

ALFAZ DEL PI is combating the invasive tiger mosquitoes, now spreading along the Mediterranean coast, with drones. Once they have identified the humid areas and stagnant water where the mosquitoes breed these can then be eliminated, said Alfaz’s Health Councillor Dolores Albero. She stressed the importance of public cooperation in…

Costa Blanca's dog beach debate rages on

A welcome addition for our four-legged friends or a blight on our beaches? If you read the letters page of the Euro Weekly News or visit a local social networking site it’s clear that there are few issues that divide opinion at the moment as much as the emergence of…

Unfond farewell for Altea's Charco lagoon

ALTEA had two ‘come again?’ moments in recent days. On one hand - as explained elsewhere in the Euro Weekly News - trains are trundling once more through the town, as they test the track and signals following a six-month modernisation programme. On the other hand, practically nothing remains of…

Mobility scooters misused by tourists — blame it on Madge from Benidorm

Benidorm’s Local Police joined the town hall and hotels in the clampdown on mobility scooters. Officers have spent the last two weeks clearing the streets and pavements of irregularly used scooters. By-laws restricting them to the over-55s and the disabled were introduced in 2013. They had become a holiday must-have…

The mystery of San Josep tower is solved

SANT JOSEP tower in the Villajoyosa countryside overlooking the sea has given up its final secret. The restored tower, embedded for centuries in a private house, was built between 150 and 170AD to honour the memory of a prominent and clearly affluent Roman citizen. That much was obvious to archaeologists,…
