Malaga Gateway to the famous Costa Del Sol and the region of Andalucía. Boasting a vast array of beach resorts from the up market areas of Marbella and Puerto Banus to the more commercialized areas of Fuengirola and Benalmadena. The coastal resorts of the Costa Del Sol have always been a magnet for Brits and therefore transformed very much into a little Britain in the sun. Venture in land half an hour and see the transformation from little Britain to Spanish charm, so it really is your choice - chose from immersing yourself deep in the Spanish culture, snacking on tapas and paella in a charming Spanish village or find yourself that full English with Danish bacon al fresco on the beach front, followed by a swift half in the local pub.
Flights to Malaga are aplenty and have been for decades with more flights from the UK to Malaga than from anywhere else, it seems us Brits just can't get enough of the place and with capacity on the increase year on year cheap flights to Malaga are in abundance. Add the cheap air fare to Malaga with the two hour flying time, 160km of beach and over 300 days of sunshine each year and it's not hard to work out why it has become one of the UK's favourite places in the sun.
The whole region has a massive ex-pat community with a mixture of those choosing to retire in the region and those chasing the dream lifestyle of living and working in the sun, so it is no surprise the Brit abroad is well catered for.
It is also one of Europe's foremost golfing destinations, with over 100 courses to choose from, from sea view or mountain view courses to international courses and clubs that incorporate spa facilities for those that have a golf crazy partner, you can sit back relax and get some pampering while the other half enjoy their round.
The region also has many areas of outstanding natural beauty, the Montes De Malaga national park with its breathtaking vistas is well worth a visit to get away from the madding crowds on the beaches with its dense pine forest, waterfalls and hiking and biking trails.
