If you are looking to book a holiday in the sun but can’t find the perfect destination, consider Malaga; a delightful port on the coast of Spain, on the Costa del Sol.
If it’s (almost) guaranteed sunshine, good food and plenty of entertainment you’re looking for, then Malaga is the place to be. With more than 320 days of sunshine guaranteed each year, you will not be disappointed with the weather at any time of the year and will have no trouble in finding a warm sandy beach to kick back with a cocktail and relax on.
It is well-known that many of the best beaches in Europe can be found on the Costa del Sol and Malaga has more than its fair share of them. No matter where you are in Malaga, you are never far from an inviting beach and the clear waters of the Med.
Not only does Malaga have a number of fine beaches, but it is also one of the few Spanish tourist destinations where you can still expect to find traditional Spanish values and be given a glimpse of real Spanish life.
If you’re fed up of visiting Spanish destinations which have been transformed into tourist destinations with little Spanish influence, then Malaga is sure to give you a more authentic Spanish experience whilst still catering to the needs of tourists.
