Costa Del Sol holidays
of a pint £2.96
When: We recommend you travel in May to July if you’re a sun worshipper and want to see the region buzzing with events and festivals.
Where: Stay in the lively city of Marbella for luxurious shopping, fresh seafood and the chance to meet a celeb! Imagine the start of a Hollywood romance overlooking the yachts in the marina...
Why: Be master of your destiny and see Spain through independent eyes, with mornings trekking the mountains and afternoons on the beach eyeing up the local talent. You know, there’s a chance you might not come back solo!
When: Late spring is the best time to go to beat the crowds and still get the appealing heat of the sun. If you’re looking to do water sports, this is a great time as the water will be deliciously warm.
Where: Without a doubt, check in at Malaga to experience some of the best nightlife and vogue restaurants. You don’t have to go far for excellent choice, as this coastal resort is said to have the biggest concentration of bars in Europe! Gives London a run for its money, right?
Why: Get the rounds in at your choice of bars, clubs and restaurants after days beating each other at golf or competing for the best holiday tan.
When: Go hand and hand into the sunset anytime during April and May. The temperatures are a little cooler so there’s space for heating things up and you’ll get more privacy before the peak tourist season.
Where: For alone time and a chance to reach the dizzy heights of a Jane Austen romance, head to Mijas, a cosy village with cobbled streets. There’s also a secluded beach to help you both unwind...or something like that.
Why: Quite simply, where’s more romantic than the Costa del Sol? There’s sun, sand and tapas! So relax on the beach, take a dip in the sea and then be that couple who feeds each other at restaurants in the evening. You’ll be so loved up that the romance will stay with you long after you’ve landed back in blustery Britain.
When: As Costa del Sol holidays have warm weather all year round, you can enjoy a getaway during school breaks. We recommend booking for the Easter hols when grabbing a spot on the sand will be easy-peasy and soft skin will be more protected.
Where: It just has to be Nerja is your looking for beach variety and a place to unwind. If you want somewhere more energetic, try Torremolinos where you can shop and go to Aqualand, Costa del Sol’s largest waterpark. Who’d stick their nose up at that? No one!
Why: Because children can be picky and the Costa del Sol will keep them all happy! Get yourselves on as many beaches as you like, swim in the calm seas and have day trips to nearby waterparks.
