Spring has most definitely sprung here on the Costa del Sol, the weather is stunning, the beaches are ready and waiting and the restaurants, bars and beach clubs have been spruced up ready for the season.
We’re ready, how about you?
If you’re dreaming of fun in the sun this year, there’s no time like the present to get booking and start your countdown. Our most popular properties book up early and flights for the busy summer holiday period are also in high demand. If you need to travel during the school holidays particularly, we’d recommend getting booked up now. It ensures you the best prices, best properties and plenty of time to get ready for your holidays.
This summer there’s loads to look forward to!
Cirque de Soleil is in Malaga for the whole month of June with their show Totem. This is always a fantastic show, perfect for the whole family. We’d recommend you book your tickets early for this, as it sells out fast.
From June, the beach clubs really start going with regular events and parties throughout the summer. There’s almost always something going on, so check the beach clubs close to your holiday rental when you arrive, or browse online.
Summer also brings the start of the feria season, with Marbella’s week long festival starting on the 5th of June. From there on, there are ferias all along the coast, which gives a wonderful glimpse into the culture and passion of the Spanish, plus a great excuse for a party.
Later in the summer we’re looking forward to seeing the Pet Shop Boys, Sting, Jamiroquai, James Blunt, Texas and many more playing at Starlite during July and August.
This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of great things to do this summer on the Costa del Sol. You make the arrangements, leave us to provide the best accommodation!
