Overwhelm your senses not your pockets: Holiday in Costa del Sol with lastminute.com
You’d be forgiven for thinking that the best thing about a holiday in Costa del Sol is the fantastic weather or, with lastminute.com, the unbelievable price. You’ll soon discover, however, that it’s not just the sunshine that sets a holiday in Costa del Sol apart.
Whether you’re looking to explore Spanish culture, relax on some of the finest beaches in the world, dance the night away, or entertain the kids while you do all of the above, Costa del Sol will exceed expectations.
Costa del Sol: popular for lots of reasons
Offering an abundance of resorts, beaches, bars, clubs and activities, you’ll be spoilt for choice on holiday in Costa del Sol.
Want to relax and take in the rays? Costa del Sol has been welcoming thousands to its shores for years, and it’s not hard to understand why. Situated on the Mediterranean Sea, the area is renowned for its white sand beaches and tranquil waters. Combine that with temperatures reaching around 30C throughout summer and the only work you’ll be doing is on your tan.
Costa del Sol boasts plenty to entertain all ages, so if you fancy something more active try raising your pulse with a high speed go kart race, or unleash your inner child at the Aquapark in Torremolinos. If you’re looking for a family day out, the zoo in Fuengirola or the Sea Life centre in Benalmadena will capture your attention, or you could try a safari in Estepona. For everyone who loves a bargain, there are countless flea markets across the region, just remember you have to take it all home! The golf courses along the ‘Costa del Golf’ provide perfect relaxation after your morning’s shopping. All that’s missing from your Costa del Sol holiday is more time!
If you prefer to turn off the beaten track, the secluded coves of El Maro aren’t to be missed, or lose yourself amongst the winding cobblestones of the Old Quarter of Marbella. If you can bear to leave the fabulous sunshine for a couple of hours, the Museo Picasso Malaga particularly stands out from the wealth of museums in the area, or you could venture into nearby Seville for the authentic Spanish experience.
While Costa del Sol is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Spain, the area has retained its Spanish roots, offering an eclectic array of some of the finest Spanish tapas alongside more traditional English influenced fare. Sample some mouth-watering jamón in Benalmadena before progressing into the famed 24 Hour Square to experience the thriving nightlife. Don’t expect to return until the early hours!
