Cheap flights, accommodation and holidays to Costa del Sol, Spain
Holidays to the Costa del Sol are the original Spanish holiday for many Brits and the fact that we are still coming back here every year for more is reflected in its diverse range of resorts. There really is something for everyone on a Costa del Sol holiday - from high energy resorts to idyllic rural retreats.
There are the big busy resorts of Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Benalmadena with their enthusiastic nightlife, ideal for a young and lively Costa del Sol holiday; and the quieter, more relaxed ambience of resorts like Nerja and nearby Frigiliana, more suited to a laid back Costa del Sol holiday.
Whilst on holiday in the Costa del Sol, take some time to explore the region away from the beaches. There are parts of this lovely region, the hidden Spain, which you may not be familiar with. Salobrena is a smallish coastal resort set amongst high cliffs and lush tropical plantations with a tenth century Moorish castle, ideal for exploring on a day away from the beach on your holiday to Costa del Sol. Montejaque is a traditional rural village on the slopes of the Grazema National Park – complete with donkeys, sheep and rare birds. It is an ornithological and botanical paradise; and offers a real escape holiday on the Costa del Sol, complete with hot-air ballooning and caving.
All the mainstream resorts are reasonably close to each other. Each has a unique atmosphere but they all have a good choice of restaurants, bars and cafes. Most offer excellent watersports and tennis, and make excellent destinations for family holidays to the Costa del Sol.
For those who want to experience the traditional Spain, on your Costa del Sol holiday, you don’t have to travel far to experience Andalucia, famous for bull-fighting, orange groves, Moorish towns, castles and sleepy villages. For a different experience on your holiday to Costa del Sol, a short trip will take you to Gibraltar where you can see the apes, visit St Michael’s Caves and enjoy tax-free shopping.
For history buffs, on a Costa del Sol holiday you could hardly be better placed with numerous historical cities and monuments on your doorstep. Granada with its ancient buildings set against the snowy blue-tinged peaks of the Sierra Nevada is a stunning city to explore. The whole area is steeped in history - Malaga was the birthplace of Picasso, Cadiz home of the Armada and Huelva was the start of Columbus’s journey to discover the New World. On holiday in the Costa del Sol, you'll soon discover there’s a lot more to the Costas than just sunshine.
On your Costa del Sol holiday, there are a wonderful array of local delicacies to be enjoyed, like boucheros - little fried fish similar to whitebait, gazpacho, tortilla and meaty stews of beef, rabbit and goats. The tapas include an incredible range of meats, hams and cheeses and superb seafood. There is a long tradition of wine making in Malaga and many of the local dishes in Nerja are cooked in sherry.
Many tour operators offer traditional package holidays to Costa del Sol, which can represent excellent value for money. However, you may prefer to choose a Costa del Sol hotel from the selection available, and add this to a low cost flight to the Costa del Sol, to create your ideal trip to the Costa del Sol. If you are staying with family or friends, you may not need to book accommodation in Costa del Sol, and may wish to only search for a flight to Malaga.
