Costa del sunshine

With temperatures reaching 30c in July and August, the Costa del Sols southern location means that temperatures stay warm during the winter months, making holidays in the Costa del Sol a year round destination.

With over 100 miles of coastline, water sports are in abundance, and with 11 marinas along the coastline, you can always book scuba diving or water skiing lessons, or simply take yourself off snorkelling. To the north of the region you can visit authentic Andalucian villages like Nerja, or slightly inland, the village of Frigiliana, with its fertile climate encouraging the sweet smelling olive, mango, almond, figs, avacoados and grapes to grow in abundance.

The lively Torremolinos offers sandy beaches and vibrant nightlife, linked by the affluent marina with its neighbour Benalmadena, a town which gives the diversity of family fun and evening entertainment. Further south brings you to the cosmopolitan resorts of Marbella and Puerto Banus, both bustling with designer shops, street cafes, trendy bars and gourmet restaurants. Relax by the marina in Puerto Banus amid the multi million pound yachts and watch the world go by. For a taste of culture, a visit to the capital of Malaga is a must, home to the Picasso Museum, stunning art galleries, impressive Cathedral, hilltop Castle and Alcazabar fort.

Places to Visit

Tivoli World

This fantastic amusement park is located in the resort of Benalmadena. There is an open air theatre and numerous rides to keep the whole family entertained throughout the day. A very popular day out indeed, while in Benalmadena.

Alcazaba

Alcazaba is a magnificent Roman fortress to be found in the city of Malaga. Over the years it has become a popular tourist attraction and actually dates back to between the 8th and 11th Century.

Puerto Banus

Top shopping, fantastic restaurants and a breathtaking marina are the star attractions of Puerto Banus near Marbella. Spend the day at the marina checking out the lifestyles of the rich and famous or take a quiet stroll and admire the beautiful yachts. Puerto Banus is also becoming increasingly popular as a destination for "hen" nights.

From amusement parks to zoos

If its excitement and entertainment you are looking for, then there's plenty on offer. Tivoli World in Benalmadena will play host to a fascinating evening of thrilling rides and amazing shows. Ascend up Monte Calamorro in a cable car to see breathtaking views of the Costa del Sol, right down to Gibraltar, and on a clear day, the North African coastline, day trips are also available from most resorts to visit Gibraltar and Tanzier. Andalucian horses are world famous for their fascinating shows, and there are many to be seen on the Costa del Sol holidays, or even go one better and try horse riding yourself, opportunities to have lessons or just a wonderful gallop along the beach at sunset are readily available

Golf is another favourite pastime in the Costa del Sol as there are around 50 courses in the region, attracting players of all levels. Even during the winter months, with the climate being so mild this is an excellent choice for golf fans. Fuengirola Zoo is an absolute must with monkeys, tigers and crocodiles among the wildlife on show, but beware...Fuengirola Zoo has a very animal friendly policy and there are no cages to be seen in this Zoo! One thing is for sure, a visit to the Costa del Sol will leave you with a lifetime of memories. Holidays to the Costa del Sol can be booked online here at Latedeals.co.uk.
