Costa Del Sol Holidays
History and Harbours
Holidays in Costa del Sol, Spain’s sunshine coast are great for families, couples or groups!
Head to the bright lights of Torremolinos for the perfect package holiday with friends or go to Fuengirola a long term tourist favourite.
Glitzy Marbella will impress those who didn’t know Spain could attract the rich and famous, so keep those Gucci shades on and play spot the celebrity whilst you sip cocktails in harbour side bars and watch the sun set.
As for the beaches, you will be spoilt for choice. In between the busy tourist beaches, there are intimate coves sheltering quieter sandy shores perfect for couples to hide away.
Torremolinos is a great beach destination for families, providing reasonably priced accommodation and plenty of activities for a family holiday in costa del sol.
It's got a fantastic promenade lined with bars, restaurants and shops… which stretches from Playamar to Benalmadena for those who want to stretch their legs. Activities here include a trip to the water park, golfing, shopping, jet-skiing, or plain old fashioned beach life!
Those looking for a quieter trip can head to the old fisherman's quarter of La Carihuela or go to the old part of town, known as El Calvario, with its narrow streets and sedate lifestyle.
Marbella and Puerto Banus
On the sunny south coast nestle the neighbouring glitzy resorts of Marbella and Puerto Banus. Port side life here involves yachts, cocktails, Gucci and Ferraris and you can play ‘spot the celebrity’ as people like Simon Cowell and the Beckhams frequent this part of the Costa del Sol.
You don’t have to be loaded to have a good time here though…. Cheap holidays to Marbella are still available if you plan ahead and with excellent accommodation available in the heart of the action, you could never be bored here!
Family holidays in Cost del Sol should include a trip to one of the fantastic theme parks like Tivoli World and nature lovers should head to one of the nature reserves up in the Sierra Mountains.
