Benidorm Beach Vendors

Benidorm Beach Vendors

Benidorm Beach Vendors/sellers - As the sun comes out and the beaches of Benidorm starts to get busy, the beach vendors known as "Mojiteros" or "cuberos" start to become more noticeable. These are the people that walk along the beach trying to sell you bottles of water, mixed cocktails, sangria and slices of watermelon.

Many people believe these people work in the nearby bars, the Benidorm Beach Vendors DO NOT they are un-licenced and illegal

Do not be tempted to buy from these people, they are unofficial and are unlicensed traders and are all breaking local by-laws.  Also they would not pass Spanish health, safety and food hygiene standards, as most of the drinks are mixed at the side of the road in unsanitary conditions.

Benidorm illegal beach vendors

During the high season which officially starts in June there are more police patrolling the beach to stop this illegal activity, but during out of season periods. please be aware that these people are not what they seem.  The only legal items allowed to be sold on the beach is the hire of sunbeds and parasols.

DO NOT BUY FROM THESE BEACH VENDORS.  TAKE A STROLL AND USE THE LOCAL SHOPS OR A NEARBY BAR UP AND DOWN THE BEACH FRONT, THERE IS NEVER ONE FAR AWAY FROM YOU.

The same rules apply to the people walking up and down the beach offering massages - these are NOT legal, most are not trained and they hold NO licences and are breaking the law.  DO NOT USE THEM.

A few years ago there was even an altercation between a group of these "Mojiteros"  and the Local Police in which several officers were injured. 

There was a incident reported in Barcelona where three beach sellers were arrested for selling mojitos which contained faecal remains which could transmit E.Coli, a bacterium from the intestine of humans or animals.
