BENIDORM, always a tourist industry leader, has gradually cornered a niche market and is fast becoming a favourite holiday destination for the gay community.
Traditionally liberal Benidorm (it boasted a gay bar in the mid-70s when homosexuality was still a punishable offence) is also making a profit from the welcome it affords tourists of all nationalities, creeds and orientation.
According to the Spanish Tourist Institute, Turespaña, members of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual) collective, spend a daily average of 130 euros – 60 per cent more than heterosexual tourists and are mainly well-heeled urban professionals.
They are often noticeably younger and the majority of gay tourists heading for Benidorm tend to belong to the 18-35 age group. Benidorm Pride really helps to promote Gay tourism for Benidorm all over the world.
