Overview

Spain’s most famous coastline runs from Torremolinos, just south of Malaga, to San Diego, and is peppered with resort towns offering everything from high-end refinement to adventurous family fun. Sunbathe on sandy beaches, hike through olive groves, snorkel and scuba dive, and shop and dine to your heart’s content. Luxury Costa Del Sol holidays promise ease, relaxation, and fun.

The Costa Del Sol is a holiday destination that offers all kinds of luxury holiday experiences. Marbella caters for expensive tastes with an array of Michelin-star restaurants, beautiful boutique stores and landscapes that could turn a social media-phobe into the most sought after Instagram influencer. 

For travellers seeking a tranquil time and the opportunity to explore historical landmarks, Estepona is the ideal destination. Situated along a picture-perfect stretch of sandy beach – the Playa de la Rada – Estepona offers the usual holiday attractions and nightlife while retaining its quaint charm. 

Away from the coast, Mijas, one of the region’s famed “white villages”, offers a secluded and scenic stay in the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas. For unbeatable family fun, you’ll want to head for Benalmádena or Fuengirola, where amusement parks, all-inclusive resorts, and kid-friendly attractions can be found in abundance. Meanwhile, in Malaga, you can immerse yourself in art and history at the city’s excellent galleries and museums.
