We propose some Ideas for the December 2017 Spanish bank holiday.
Throughout the year, in addition to the holidays and weekends you choose to escape from the routine, noise and stress, the bank holidays certainly have considerable value. They extend the weekend and allow you to disconnect somewhat more from the usual day to day.
This year, your December 2017 bank holiday trip will be perfect, because your holidays do not coincide with the weekend, taking place on a Wednesday and a Friday. So, if you get the 7th free, your break can stretch more, and enjoy that great December getaway from Wednesday to Sunday.
Also, remember that in our Servigroup Hotels we still have the best offers for the December 2017 Spanish bank holiday.
Now that we've whetted your appetite, we're going to challenge you with a series of ideas so you can enjoy your Spanish Constitution break and do it the way you like most.
Whether it's sports, nightlife or children's activities, among other possibilities, you can find an alternative to staying at home by coming to Benidorm, Orihuela Costa, Villajoyosa or Mojácar (hotels located in Peñíscola, Alcocéber and La Manga del Mar Menor aren't open to the public for these dates).
1- Sun and Beach
Although it is not exactly the warmest season, the weather in our towns, is very mild at any time of the year. Therefore, you will most likely find a day in which a moderate autumn sun can give you that golden tone that a few months ago you began to lose.
For your December break in Benidorm, our Levante and Poniente beaches, as well as the most tranquil and comforting coves, do not close for holidays.
In Villajoyosa, you know that our Montíboli Hotel lies between two of the most popular coves in the Marina Baixa, which are L'Esparrelló and La Caleta, plus you could also choose Bol Nou, Playa del Paraíso, Torres beach and Playa Centro, amongst others, which are also at your disposal.
On the Orihuela Coast, our two coves are also perfect for these dates, although if you prefer to go out a bit further, we recommend a few options such as Cabo Roig, Aguamarina beach, Mil Palmeras beach, and the beautiful coves such as La Mosca y la Cala del Bosque.
In Mojácar, our beach Marina de la Torre, situated in front of the Hotel Servigroup Marina Playa, also doesn’t rest in December and offers you one of the most relaxing and paradisiacal environments of the area. But remember that in the surrounding area of Cabo de Gata and in the vicinity of Carboneras, Playa de los Muertos is defined as one of the greatest paradises of our country, in true Caribbean style.
2- Fun for the Children
If in your case you are escaping to enjoy with the children, you will want to keep them occupied for the break.
In Benidorm and Villajoyosa, you have direct access to the most spectacular and famous theme parks, as you know, you have Terra Mítica, Terra Natura and Mundomar. You can also count on the best playgrounds and leisure areas, both public and private. In addition, the popular Circus of Benidorm Palace, located just minutes from the Hotel Nereo in Benidorm, also keeps its doors open so that the little ones can enjoy the best numbers of magic and other types of varied shows.
On the Orihuela Coast we offer you similar leisure options a few kilometers from the La Zenia Hotel. Also, very close to the hotel, you will find one of the most complete and extensive shopping centers in the whole region, La Zenia Boulevard.
Another fun option we recommend is visiting the Pola Park, about 30 kilometers from the hotel. It is the great amusement park of Santa Pola, perfect for going with children.
Near Mojacar, the little ones of the house will be able to enjoy to the maximum in the Fort West Bravo Park. In this fabulous theme park located in the Tabernas desert, the elderly will also have a great time thanks to its wide range of services, which will allow the whole family to travel to the Far West without leaving Almeria.
It is a unique opportunity to live a true tribute to western cinema in the first person, among its elegant and faithful decor, its magnificent shows and its routes on horseback through the park.
3- Open air sport in Autumn: cycling, running and skating.
Autumn is a perfect season for sports. Its temperatures are somewhat cooler, but allow you the best outdoor physical activity at any time of the day.
In all our destinations, cycling, running and skating are three of the activities that most define outdoor sport in the fall. Our fabulous beach environment, as well as any area of the towns are suitable for running, or picking up a bike or skates.
If you are a great lover of running, then in Benidorm, both our promenades and the sandy beaches are the best scenarios as it has little overcrowding at any time of day. But if you want to go further, our well-known Via Parque (parallel to the Poniente beach) is perhaps the most suitable area for practicing all three sports.
In Villajoyosa, we would recommend more the seafront and the center beach, although it is also very frequent to follow the National Road 332A, a popular route between the Paradise and the town of Villajoyosa. This route, is perfect to practice these sports, because of its low traffic, it is fantastic, since it is not used much as a crossing.
La Zenia is also perfect for outdoor sports, both on the beaches and in the urbanization, regardless of your favorite sport. Therefore, running, skating or on your own bike, you will find the most popular routes on the beaches of Orihuela including points such as Pilar de la Horadada, Villamartin, Cabo Roig and Río Seco.
As for Mojácar, it offers you an ideal itinerary throughout Mojacar Playa to practice preferably running and skating. The urbanizations will also attract you to do sports, although if you prefer to avoid the hills, we recommend more the beach environment.
If your thing is cycling, Mojácar has at your disposal the best roads and routes to go by bike. In addition, we are the main destination of cycling, so you can enjoy to the maximum the December bank holiday 2017 on wheels. The Route of the Mojaquera by Sierra Cabrera, passes in the direction of the town of Mojácar from the beach, as well as other routes that visit places like Carboneras, Garrucha and Sopalmo, will make you see this town of Almerías Levante as the best area to practice your favorite sport.
4- Mountain Hiking
Hiking is an increasingly popular sport; whose routes are always perfect to explore in any of our destinations. In addition, any day of your December break will be perfect for an outing to those paths and trails, you can enjoy when the weather is good.
If you are going to visit Benidorm or Villajoyosa, the routes through the Sierra de Aitana and the Puig Campana are constant and very popular, especially during the fall weekends. Although the weather is much more pleasant for hiking, we recommend that you control the time due to having less hours of day light.
The popular beach routes in Orihuela are the order of the day at all times of the year. Some of them include the most emblematic beaches of the Costa de Orihuela (Punta Prima, Aguamarina, Cala Cabo Peñas, Cala Capitán, La Zenia beaches, etc.).
But if you prefer a less beachy and more traditional atmosphere, then in the city of Orihuela there are those popular and characteristic semi-urban routes that pass through its historic palm groves, the mythical Monte de San Miguel and the cozy urban center of Orihuela.
Mojácar is also perfect for hiking. In fact, the Sierra Cabrera also offers you on this occasion a magnificent hybrid environment for its reminiscences with the most traditional mountains of North Africa. Other popular hiking trails in Mojácar include important points such as the Sendero las Huertas and the impressive Cabo de Gata and its surrounding beaches.
5- Night time Fun
We cannot dedicate an entry to this blog about ideas for the December 2017 bank holiday, without speaking at some point about the nightlife. If you are one of those who usually travel without children, you probably prefer to visit the most popular night spots of the destination that you have chosen to spend these days.
In Benidorm, as you well know, the offer is very wide, and for all audiences and styles. These are attractive pubs, bars, restaurants and dazzling nightclubs perfect (how not?) Also buzzing during the nights of the December break. These are places of fashion that you surely know if you come often to the capital of the Costa Blanca.
The best and most varied pubs are more located in the surroundings of the historic area of Benidorm and close to the beaches, so you will not need the car if you are staying in a Benidorm hotel.
On the other hand, the most popular discos in Benidorm, are available throughout the year on the Avenida Comunidad Valenciana. And given that we are talking about the outskirts of the town, if you prefer to avoid the car, the area is also fully accessible by taking a walk.
In Villajoyosa, you will also enjoy the Constitution bank holiday, with more very attractive pubs and bars.
You can go out and have fun in various fashionable establishments, both around the beach and the town center. You will be surprised with exotic pubs characterized by avant-garde decorations and pleasant music in the purest chill out style. You can also find attractive places more characterized by the best rock music, among other styles.
If you choose our Hotel Marina Playa, the surroundings of Mojácar Playa are perfect to go out for a drink or party. The varied establishments of Vera Playa, a few kilometers from the hotel, will also surprise you with its wide mix of styles.
But if you opt for an atmosphere farther from the sea, in the town of Mojácar, you will also find very interesting and fun places.
As for the nightlife area around the Orihuela Coast, the beaches are characterized by having more establishments that are ideal to have something to drink and have fun. In fact, very close to La Zenia, leaving the urbanization in the direction of the road, you will find a wide range of pubs and restaurants.
If you prefer to expand your options, the port of Torrevieja and the surroundings of Cabo Roig will provide you with everything you need to "endure" until the wee hours of the morning.
6- Relaxing Bank Holiday: The Welness Centres in Servigroup
One of the most predominant goals, especially in the low and mid-season months, is relaxation and well-being. You may not be able to tan in the sun just as quickly, but you have wellness centres in certain Servigroup hotels that will make you feel like a new person once you get up from the massage couch.
The most innovative massages, the best and exotic anti-stress treatments based on the most popular oriental techniques in the West, comforting baths in our heated pools, as well as the always addictive Finnish saunas and Turkish baths, await you on this December 2017 break in the Servigroup Diplomatic hotel in Benidorm, our Servigroup La Zenia Hotel in Playas de Orihuela, our Hotel Servigroup Marina Mojacar Playa, and the Hotel Montíboli in Villajoyosa.
