Useful Information ALSA BUSES

This is the bus which runs to Alicante airport. You can catch it from either the Avda Europa, outside the Europa Clinica or from the bus station – but with baggage you would need to take a taxi as you are not allowed to take luggage onto local public buses. Departs hourly and on the hour from Avda Europa from 7am until 10pm – but there is NO bus at 9pm: costs 9.45€ one way.


In Spain banks only open for half a day, so make sure you go in the morning. Normal opening hours are 8.15am till 2pm, no Saturday opening. All banks have an ATM with an option to change the language into English – press the ‘cambio idiomas’ option.


The local bus service is run by Llorente. You pay the driver and the cost is 1.50€ regardless of distance. Generally the buses run until midnight. See the bus chart for more info later in the guide

For private sittings and appointments please contact Kenny on 96 587 8424 • 686 361 594 • Aries: Watch plans change as you encounter the unexpected and adapt your schedule. There is so much in the routine that you love, but there are some wonderful chances to enjoy yourself, and it is time you let your hair down for once in a while. You are usually so guided and protected, take a break and see what’s on offer. Taurus: An emotionally challenging time for you, especially when something has been misunderstood and your actions are under close scrutiny. Blame all this on Venus, your amorous planetary leader, for taking on mighty Uranus and then heading for Aquarian time mid month There is an apology to be made, so do it. Gemini: Beady eyed Mercury seeks the unity with Saturn, bringer of past and present wisdom. There is something currently not being revealed to you, and for sure this is because it isn’t the right time, and you could take things the wrong way very easily. Try reading between the lines and you will reward yourself with a new angle. Cancer: Maybe you should remain inside that shell when all around you just now appear to be losing their temper, or losing their way? Someone has stirred up a hornet’s nest, and since you are involved and implicated this should be a time to clear your name. However in the heart of the matter you may find more important things to do. Leo: You are fiercely independent, and about to start something very new and something very special to you. Don’t listen to what others say. Let nothing stop you and your quest for a slice of the action. Your inimitable charm and vibrant personality will see you safely through and there is more, much more where this comes from! Virgo: Messenger Mercury connects with Piscean energies suggesting that under the circumstances you could do no more than you already have. You had misgivings right from the start, and maybe if you had known where all this was going you would have declined to get involved. As it is you have to just walk away, head high!

Kenny Corris brings you the Horoscope Libra: Venus acts on two distinctly different levels this month as Uranus makes a connection in the fourth house bringing action, and enters boldly into Aquarius. There are two sides to every story, and it would appear that the one you have been told isn’t the full one. You feel pressured to make a decision that you may live to regret. Scorpio: Fight fire with fire as it seems to be the only way out. Someone is remaining stubborn, and you expected loyalty and didn’t get it, when you most needed it. It is clear that the tables are turned, the boot is on the other foot, and you have to have your say in the matter. Throw caution to the wind and set the record straight, once and for all Sagittarius: Try to keep your temper, and use your wonderful skills of judgment to wipe the slate clean. Saturn brings light onto a previously hidden part of your agenda. Take this as a sign to continue your good work and to show that, no matter what, you can openly defend what you did, and would do the same again if you had to. Capricorn: A financial corner raises its ugly head one more, as it is hard to break even and there are some financial pressures upon you. Take the positive way out and take the reins of finance under your belt. Some extra work remains unpaid, and you mustn’t be afraid to ask for what is rightfully yours; because, right now, every little helps. Aquarius: Venus brings love to your door and you are open and ready to move things to the next stage. It has been some time since someone entered your heart but it seems right now to be the most natural thing that could possibly happen to you. With passion stirring you begin to think for yourself for once and whatever, it is your call. Pisces: With both Mars and Mercury in residence there is a conflict of interests and your heart shouldn’t rule your head in the current scheme of things. Take a break and spend some quality time, as rest and relaxation will allow you to see things from a different angle, and then you may see what others see, and change your perspective.

Gay Beaches...

MAL PAS BEACH This is a small cove often missed by many visitors and is found at the end of the harbour road on the Poniente side of the Old Town. You can also reach it by steps from the top of the Old Town square known as La SeĂąoria. This beach is popular with gay visitors especially in Winter when it is a sun trap. PONIENTE BEACH (Popular gay area by the park at night) Beyond the Old Town starting at park Elche by the harbour and running for over 3km is the more sedate Poniente beach which is a favourite with local residents and Spanish families. The facilities are as good as the Levante but offer a less crowded space. Popular Gay area is in front of the park where you will also find the new CafĂŠ Refuel the place to meet up after the Poniente beach for a beer and gossip. (Park Elx known as Dove Park also).

BENIDORM COVES - TI XIMO & ALMADRABA These are small sandy coves reached by road at the far end of the Levante beyond the cable ski.

If you prefer to be more secluded these are recommended for the adventurous as it is quite a steep walk. There are no facilities so take plenty to drink and food if you are to spend an entire day there. RACO CORNIL GAY PLAYA NUDISTA 4km FROM BENIDORM This beach is best reached by hire car. Take the old Villa Joyosa road toward the casino. Take an immediate left at the casino and follow the road down to the car park where you will find a small rocky cove. The area both by the beach and at the top of the hill where you see a derelict Finca is very popular for all over sunbathing until sun down. The cove itself is mixed and is popular with Spanish couples too. You can walk if you take the number 5 or 41 bus to La Cala (From Park Elx by harbour) and walk over the hill. To get there face the beach and look to the right up the hill you will see a derelict villa set high up - head for it to get to the gay area which has been popular for 100 years! Take plenty of water with you as there are no facilities there.

Open from 10am-1am • Abierto 10.00h - 01.00h de la madrugada
