Holidays to the Costa del Sol
From Sun Sea and Sangria at Marbella, to culture and cave art at Nerja, we at Co-operative Travel have Costa del Sol holidays to suit every type of holidaymaker. Costa del Sol package holidays no longer mean overcrowded beaches and “chips with everything”. Today, last minute Costa del Sol holidays also mean culture, history and authentic Spanish cuisine; chips strictly optional.
A Costa del Sol holiday offers beautiful beaches, endless sunshine, and everything from water parks to zoos in the way of activities and entertainment. Many resorts, such as Fuengirola and Torremolinos, developed from old Andalucian fishing villages, with fascinating old town districts to explore.
Late deals in the Costa del Sol resort of Fuengirola are a popular choice with families, who are attracted by the Blue Flag Beaches, water sports, promenade and marina. However, the resort also has a Moorish castle, zoological gardens, traditional street markets and numerous restaurants. A short way inland is charming Mijas, a traditional white-washed Andalucian village with donkey taxis for hire.
Costa del Sol holidays in Benalmadena take you to a lively family-orientated town where the fun never stops. The biggest attractions are the 700 metre beach, which has jet skis and parasailing, and Tivoli World Theme Park. Others include; a Sea World aquarium and the pretty Paloma Park. There’s also an attractive marina with chic bars and restaurants. If the 24-hour karaoke bars don’t appeal, the trendy clubs and discos of Malaga are close at hand, while culture-wise there’s the original old town of Benalmadena Pueblo to explore.
We at Co-operative Travel also have bargain holidays to Costa del Sol’s most exclusive resort – Marbella. Spain’s answer to Monaco, the designer chic beaches, marina and restaurants blend seamlessly with a fascinating old town of cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. Marbella has a refined nightlife in keeping with its upmarket image –Puerto Banus has the best nightspots. For a total contrast, check out cheap holidays in Nerja, a scenic cliff-top resort of whitewashed cottages and twisting cobbled streets, which has retained every ounce of its Andalucian charm.
