Costa del Sol
Costa del Sol attracts a loyal fan base year after year, thanks to its sandy beaches and reliably warm weather. Many resorts along this coast are family-orientated and offer a great range of fun activities. It is also an ideal place for a straightforward holiday away with a group of friends or as a couple.
As well as lovely coastal areas, the Costa del Sol displays great interior beauty. Traditional Moorish towns cling to the slopes of a striking mountainous landscape. Charming towns like Estepona and Nerja offer low-key breaks in a more traditional atmosphere, at the same time as providing modern facilities.
Marbella and its smaller neighbouring resort, Puerto Banus, are known for being more chic and exclusive. Resorts such as Torremolinos and Fuengirola attract the 18-30 crowd looking for lazy beach days and wild nights out.
Golfers will love it here. Its undulating landscape and always-sunny climate affords wonderful conditions for spending days on the green.
Throughout this sunny coast, there are a range of attractions that are perfect for family days out. Activities such as The Tivoli World theme park, the amusements at Funny Beach and watersports will ensure that there is never a dull moment on a Costa del Sol holiday.
