The Costa del Sol can offer holidays to suit every holiday maker. The area offers great weather, great beaches, amazing countryside, it's steeped in history, culture, religion, entertainment and has loads of attractions. The biggest decision to make when going to the Costa del Sol is to know what you want from the holiday or break to find the right location. Below are a few considerations to help make that decision.
If looking to holiday on a budget then Torremolinos, Benalmadena and fuengirola would be a good starting point. All the tour operators offer holidays here for as little as £100.00. These holidays are great for young families. La Cala de mijas, Cabopino and Marbella are more up market but a premium price comes with it. Mijas and Casares are excellent choices for walking and hiking, Malaga for history and culture. Go to Cities & towns to help find that perfect destination.
Having found the right destination the next choice is a hotel, apartment or villa. Hotels are in abundance in Malaga, Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Marbella but not so many in Mijas, La Cala de mijas and Casares. Apartments and villa's are all over the Costa del Sol, easy to rent and are a great idea for a holiday. Most apartments have a communal swimming pool villa's tend to be more private. Another consideration is whats on. The Costa del Sol has thousands of festivals every year so it's worth looking at Fairs & festivals and Music, concerts & gig guide to see whats on. Transport is another consideration. Parking can be a nightmare and expensive in the cities & towns. If considering a car make sure you have a parking space or know where you can park. If you are not careful car parking can end up costing more than the car hire.
