    Hi Clive, we shall also be in Benidorm at Xmas. We will take clothes to cover all eventualities. One thing for sure is that it will get pretty chilly at night so a warm coat will be needed. The following link may be of interest to you.

    Which site are you booked in with and would you mind telling us what rate they are charging.

    Brisey.

    Can get cold in the evening and frosts are not unknown in Jan/Feb.

    Take some winter woollies for the evening, and shorts and T Shirts for the daytime.

    Evenings get a bit chilly and nights can get as low as 6C, but the daytime temp are misleading in all the charts ( unless you intend sitting in the shade all the time ! )

    Get in the sun and it is def T shirt and shorts weather.. In February this year Woman and me was sunbathing on the beach ( we plot up about 30 miles south of Cadiz with the usual crowd of reprobates from Fun :thumb: )

    Benidorm

    Camping Raco are charging about 14.95 euros with 2 amp leckie included for 30 days plus.

    We've beeen here since sunday and every where at the moment seems busy but people are leaving and arriving every day and we had a choice of about 15 pitches.We travelled through France and northern Spain in awful weather and it was only when we got to Valencia that we saw any sun and on arriving in Benidorm the weather has been fantastic and still very warm nights, but we know it will change soon.

    As others have said, will be very nice in the sunny spots during the day but watch the shade. Evenings the temp can drop pretty quick and it does and can get down to near freezing.. February this year we arrived and first week I was going to the bars in my big winter coat, woolly hat and gloves !!

    So be prepared.. Always better than UK..:thumb:

    ps If you travelling down through France be aware that many aires will have the water turned off, so keep topped up...
