Holidays in Costa Del Sol

A diamond nestled on the southern coast of Spain, Costa del Sol has been attracting British travellers to its golden shores for over 60 years. With miles of golden sandy coastline, charming old towns, and a colourful nightlife that will have you dancing until dawn; Costa del Sol offers a little something for everyone.

Where is the best place to stay in Costa Del Sol?

The Costa del Sol is known for its exquisite, white-washed villas, and rolling hillsides, making it one of the most beautiful coasts to visit.

Holidays to Torremolinos and Fuengirola are ideal for families and groups of friends. With large stretches of immaculate beaches where you can splash around in the waves or try your hand at water sports, local culture, history, and vibrant nightlife; there’s lots to keep you busy.

A firm favourite among Brits, Benalmadena offers an idyllic mix of excitement and serenity and is a perfect base for exploring the coast. Combining busy harbour nightlife and wonderous sights and golden beaches, this resort is the best of both worlds.

Nerja and Malaga offer authentic Spanish charm. Think of alfresco tapas dining, beautifully preserved old towns, incredible panoramic scenery, and local cultural experiences.

Then there's Costa del Sol's most glamorous resort, Marbella, where you're likely to rub shoulders with the rich and famous! 'Marbs' is a fabulous destination for couples and groups of friends who want to experience the finer things on their holiday to Spain.

Things to see and do in Costa Del Sol

Thanks to Costa del Sol's soaring year-round temperatures, the water parks here are a great way to cool off. Kids and teens will be spoiled for choice with slides and attractions at Tivoli World in Benalmadena which boasts entertainment shows and adrenaline-pumping rides. Hurtle through the air on the rollercoaster or take in panoramic views of the park from the Giant Ferris Wheel.

Kidzworld at Aqualand Torremolinos means that younger children and tots don’t need to miss out on the fun, as they can play in the fountains and water playgrounds, while older guests relish more epic challenges.

Food and drink in Costa Del Sol

Costa Del Sol like many of Spain’s tourist hotspots caters to even the pickiest of eaters thanks to a wide choice of restaurants.

However, if you’re looking for some classics to try why not start with ajoblanco. A refreshing cool summer soup that combines locally sourced garlic, almonds, and grapes – a great vegan option.
