Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol

It’s no wonder why the Costa del Sol is known as The Sunshine Coast, with 161 kilometres of white sand to enjoy. Spend your days topping up your vitamin D levels, swimming in the warm waters and eating paella with your loved ones in one of the various beachside tapas bars, before dancing the night away at one of the various clubs, cocktail bars or beach clubs in the area. If you need a more relaxing vibe, head to Benalmadena – an affluent mix of trendy yachts dotted around the habour and old Pueblo blancos selling traditional wares. The town also offers spectacular coastal views from its Old Town area.
