Welcome to the Costa del Sol. Coming up we’ve got received some perception to Malaga, Marbella, Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Nerja.
Malaga is the place to go for tradition and historical past, with well-known websites corresponding to Alcazaba Fort and Malaga Cathedral unfold throughout town.
First cease for us out of Malaga is Torremolinos. It’s every part you’d anticipate from a Spanish seaside resort; with an enormous number of seashores, lodges and actions. La Carihuela could be our decide of the seashores for households with younger kids, because it’s a bit smaller with a lot of shade and there’s a lot of eating places proper on the seaside.
We discovered that lots of the seashores in Torremolinos had been big and actually vast open; none extra so than Los Alamos seaside, up close to the airport. It will get actually big and a bit bit sparse, which implies that if you wish to get away from the primary crowds, you possibly can simply get pleasure from all of this area.
Just 3km alongside the coast, Benalmadena is the following city alongside from Torremolinos. What we actually favored essentially the most was the large quantity of actions you are able to do. Up first on our checklist was to go to the Marina.
Next up, seashores! The seashores in Benalmadena are much like these in Torremolinos. Expect lengthy stretches of sand with solar loungers, outlets, eating places and loads of issues to do. Away from the seashores, the cable automotive takes you 771m to the height of Mount Calamorro, the place you possibly can look down on the entire of the Costa del Sol. Another motive to return to Benalmadena, Mariposario homes a whole lot of butterflies and is a superb place to take the household to be taught all about their lifecycle and environments.
While in Benalmadena, we stayed on the tremendous in style Holiday Palace Resort Hotel. We’re right here on the Holiday Palace in Benalmadena. It overlooks the ocean and also you’ve received the beautiful mountains proper behind you however you’d by no means really want to go away this lodge as a result of every part is right here available. There’s an enormous pool, mini golf, backyard, youngsters play space, actions on daily basis, outlets and extra. The rooms are big and ours had mini kitchens and balconies. The solely actual draw back for us was that the wifi was gradual and actually costly.
Further west alongside the coast are Marbella and Puerto Banus. These resorts are the place the wealthy and well-known come to vacation, so it’s dear down right here, however you’ll discover a number of the Costa del Sol’s nicest seashores, golf equipment and lodges. Marbella has 17 miles of shoreline, break up into 24 completely different seashores, essentially the most famend of which is the 4-mile stretch famously known as the Golden Mile. Another factor to bear in thoughts in case you plan to go to Marbella or Puerto Banus are the excessive costs. Food will be particularly expensive. For 4 of us to have 1 dish and a few mushy drinks every, it got here to 80 euros. It’s a dear one right here in Puerto Banus! But in case you’re coming right here, that’s what that you must anticipate.
We stayed on the Melia Marbella Banus, which is typical of the extra high-end lodges you’ll discover right here. It’s actually costly however you do get what you paid for, because it’s a resort lodge in each sense of the phrase.
Nerja is the final cease on our guides to the Costa del Sol. About an hour’s drive east of Malaga, Nerja is the place to return to get away from the vacationer resorts and uncover the secrets and techniques of the Andalusian countryside. The Balcon de Europa is without doubt one of the hottest vacationer websites in Nerja. It’s a viewpoint that provides you some magnificent views of the shoreline.
