Holidays to Costa Del Sol, Spain

Costa Del Sol is home to many of Spain’s popular resorts, including Benalmadena, Marbella and Nerja. This idyllic holiday destination offers an impressive coastline, stretching over 150 km, which marries well with its English translation as ‘The Sunshine Coast’.

Nerja’s calming Burriana city beach is the perfect spot for those seeking a peaceful location to laze in the sun all day, alongside a night filled with tasty food and a lively atmosphere. Yet, the year-long-sunshine and sandy beaches are just two of the many treasures of Costa Del Sol holidays. In fact, adventure seekers flock here for the sublime golfing resorts. Historians head to Marbella’s majestic marinas and cram their days with exciting culture trips to learn about Picasso, or hop on a boat trip over to Morocco.
