Benidorm beaches jam-packed as British holidaymakers flock to Spain in wake of Tunisia terror attacks

Barely an inch of sand is unclaimed as tourists swarm across the Spanish resort's beaches

It would be a hard task trying to locate your spot on the beach amid this masss of humanity in Benidorm.

These photos illustrate how thousands of holiday makers have flocked to the Spanish seaside resort.

Spain's renewed popularity comes after many families looked for alternative value-for-money holidays in the wake of the Tunisia terror attacks.
The Foreign Office raised Tunisia's terrorism threat level to 'high' earlier this month.

Meanwhile last minute bookings to Greece have decreased due to the country's debt crisis.

In the first week of the British summer holidays, the beaches of Levante and Poniente have been absolutely crammed full of holiday makers.
Thousands of sun umbrellas were propped up in the sand as temperatures on the coast soared to a sizzling 32C.

Spain recently set a new record for visitors, receiving 29.2million people in the first six months of 2015 - which was 4.2 per cent more than in the same period last year.
