Watch out for the mobility scooters!

Benidorm seems to be the paradise for mobility scooters. People with limited mobility can rent scooters of all shapes and sizes in Benidorm. EasyHire is a major lessor of mobility scooters and is located in Benidorm New Town. As their name says it all, it is easy for them to rent you a scooter, sometimes too easy. Even people who don't really need one can rent a scooter without any problems. For them, it's just a fun thing to get around with.

Scooters can be rented per day, per week, or even per month. The longer you rent these vehicles, the cheaper the average price per day becomes. In addition to the usual three- and four-wheel mobility scooters, you also have special heavy-duty scooters that can carry people up to a weight of no less than 220 kilograms and so-called limo scooters on which two people can sit behind each other. The person who is at the front controls the scooter.

As a pedestrian in Benidorm, you will have to take into account that there are quite a few scooters on the footpaths and roads searching their way through the city. You don't always hear them coming. That is why it is especially important to watch out with young children, because they sometimes want to make an unexpected movement, and so does the scooter. This can have nasty consequences if someone just passes by on a mobility scooter in a hurry.

The new Mirador of Benidorm

The famous and much-photographed viewpoint of Benidorm has been completely renewed. The archaeological excavations are over and the city has given the square a facelift so that the selfie-making visitors can once again enjoy the fantastic view. Picture by Harry Fabel In June 2019, archaeological excavation work was started at the Mirador del Castillo, meaning that it was closed to visitors throughout the summer. A search was done, among other things, for the remains of the old "Castillo de Benidorm" that was destroyed 200 years ago by the British. On the well-known large rock that separates the two beaches stood a fortress that had the function of defending the city against the raids of Algerian and Berber pirates in the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. Later the Castle was abandoned and nowadays there are only a few remains of walls on the rocks of the lookout point, which is also known as the "Balcony of the Mediterranean Sea".
