The sunshine coast, more commonly known as the Costa del Sol, is situated on the southernmost tip of Spain. The Costa del Sol is a vibrant holiday destination and certainly lives up to its name with on average 320 days of sunshine each year.
It is perfect for couples, groups and families alike given the Costa del Sol offers up a great cross section of resorts from the chic, party hot spots of Marbella and Puerto Banus to the more family orientated Fuengirola and Benalmadena.
If you’re looking for a chilled out beach holiday to top up your tan, you won’t be disappointed as there are over 120 beaches on the Costa Del Sol along the 160 kilometres of picturesque coastline. One of the best beaches is in Marbella where 25 kilometres of golden sand is overlooked by lively beach clubs and luxury 5 star hotels. Another favourite is the Carihuela beach in Torremolinos with numerous watersports available and a multitude of Spanish restaurants and tapas bars just set back from the beach.
The cuisine across the Costa del Sol is a mixture of Andalusian, Spanish and international providing you with a vast array of tasty dishes. Feasting on a traditional paella or a slow roasted pork dish while viewing a stunning sunset over the Carihuela beach is an experience not to be missed.
Hotels in the Costa del Sol are available to suit all tastes whether you are looking for a good value 3 star All Inclusive hotel or luxury 5 star hotel. All Inclusive hotels are very popular on the Costa del Sol as you can dine on traditional Spanish food as well as dishes from around the world including many British favourites all washed down with wide selection of soft and alcoholic drinks. Costa del Sol family hotels and luxury hotels are certainly some of the best in the whole of Spain.
The nightlife in the Costa del Sol is extensive and varied with many family orientated bars and restaurants in Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Benalmadena providing live, fun filled evening entertainment for all to enjoy. However, if partying into the early hours with the rich and famous in Marbella and Puerto Banus is what you are after then a visit to the famous night spots of either Tibu or Pamgea (or both!) is an absolute must.
