Costa Del Sol

With a mixture of sea, sun, sand, sublime entertainment, it’s easy to see why the Costa del Sol is Spain’s most popular resort. Whilst many visitors are enthralled by the gorgeous sandy beaches and plentiful amenities of some of the Costa del Sol’s main resorts, the coast also contains some more low-key charms, such as the hidden coves at El Maro.

Away from the seaside, the Aquapark in Torremolinos is the perfect place to splash around and enjoy the sunshine, whilst there are a number of karting circuits to get your adrenaline pumping. Families and animal lovers can also enjoy the safari park in Estepona, the Sea Life Aquarium in Benalmedena and Bioparc Fuengirola, where you can see a variety of species in a naturalistic zoo. The Costa del Sol also offers a variety of food choices, from British favourites to mouthwatering local tapas. Other highlights of the Costa del Sol include the quaint backstreets in Marbella’s old town and the vibrant nightlife of Benalmedena’s famous 24 Hour Square.
