A pristine stretch of Spanish beach borders the Benitez family farm. A section of the land is sold to a developer. The market boom slumps. Building operations tail off. The heir, Jose Benitez, resigns from a Barcelona construction company and moves to Benimare Beach. Through sheer effort he turns the sleepy inlet into a burgeoning holiday mecca. He invites unknown, talented musicians from South America. They perform in the village square during the season. Delicatessens, roadside restaurants and kiosks add to the atmosphere. Holiday makers dance under the stars until the early hours.
Jose’s determination eventually pays off. Land investment picks up. In the quieter off season, Benitez manages the erection of holiday villas.
Benitez sells most of the remaining farm to a Madrid Company. Richard Le Prix arrives in the picturesque bay to plan the new development. He and Jose become allies. They plot revenge on the Barcelona consortium that paid Jose a pittance for part of his inheritance.
Suspicion and gossip thrive in all small communities. Benimare Beach receives its share. Among the cosmopolitan characters that make up the residents is Jose’s mistress, Paula. Insanely jealous of her debonair lover, the pretty blonde is determined to hang on to her sugar daddy at all costs.
In this idyllic setting of an emerging beach resort, that will become a destination of the rich and famous, intrigue and love are major elements.
