Bar owners in holiday favourite Benidorm have reportedly vowed Brits will have the “best ever” summer.
Boozy holidaymakers will knock back £1.30 pints and soak up the sun on the beaches when Spain reopens its borders.
The vow comes after the Spanish tourism minister announced sun-seeking British revellers will be welcome on holidays from June.
Pub landlords in Benidorm are now gearing up to welcome holidaymakers back.
Ashley Price, owner of The Corner Bar in Costa Blanca, claimed it will “be back with a bang”.
He told the Sun Online: “Benidorm was so vibrant before the pandemic and local bar owners have held on because they know when things return, this town will be better than it's ever been before.”
He said the sun-drenched resort is just two hours on a plane from the UK and a pint costs just 1.50 euros (£1.30).
Town officials have spent millions on work over the last year refurbishing the place, he added.
Diane Charlesworth, the owner of Winnies Cafe Bar in Benidorm, told the publication: “It has been nearly 18 months of the pandemic so any bit of positivity is good and we will be welcoming British holidaymakers with open arms.”
Bookings to the resort are said to have already started rolling in as families get ready for the long summer ahead.
Spain’s tourism chief Fernando Valdes Verelst this week said June will be the “start of the recovery of tourism in Spain”.
He said: "By then we will have a digital vaccination certificate in place and we will be able to reopen our borders.
"We are having close conversations with UK authorities and we are exchanging information on Spain’s digital system and the trial happening at our airports in May.”
The UK government is set to announce early next month whether travel abroad can resume by May 17, and what the requirements for each country would be.
