Summer Holidays in Andalusia

Andalusia is a huge region, full of treasures that we can hardly fully see with a single visit and that lend itself to all types of tourism. Whether you fancy a beach holiday, a cultural visit, a break in the country or a busy list of holiday activities, you’ll find what you are looking for on the enchanted community of Andalusia. Its 945 km of coast have a great particularity due to the two different seas that bathed them: the Mediterranean Sea in the southeast of Spain and the Atlantic Ocean in the west of the Strait of Gibraltar. Join us and discover three of the main coastal areas of Andalusia.

Holidays on the Costa del Sol

If you are looking for a fun beach holiday with more than 300 sunny days per year, Costa del Sol is undoubtedly your ideal choice in Andalusia. In fact, the city of Malaga, once formed by small fishing villages such as Marbella, Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Torremolinos, has become one of the great tourist centers of Spain, with huge and modern hotels, thousands of places to go shopping or enjoy nightlife, a casino or its port.

As Marbella is the country’s quintessential vacation destination for VIPs, Fuengirola and Torremolinos are much cheaper destinations, hosting tourists of all kinds from all over the world every year.

The Costa del Sol has a lot of golden beaches with fine and beautiful sand, interchanged with rocky areas and typical sailor towns, creating a most picturesque landscape: among the most beautiful beaches of the Costa del Sol you cannot miss La Rada beach in Estepona, Calahonda beach in Nerja or Los Alamos beach in Torremolinos. Oh, and don’t forget to try the excellent gastronomic fish based offer.

Holidays on the Costa de la Luz

Tired of the Mediterranean but don’t want to give up the good weather? The Costa de la Luz is the solution for you, combining the essence of Southern Spain’s climate (few precipitations, almost 300 days of annual sunshine) with the wild beauty of the Atlantic beaches and a sea breeze that will allow you to get away of the urban pressures of the Mediterranean coast.

The Costa de la Luz covers the provinces of Cadiz to the east and Huelva to the west. Among the most popular beaches in Cadiz area is Bolonia Beach with its impressive moving sand dunes, meeting place for water sports enthusiasts. On the Huelva coast, with little distance to Palos and our Freson de Palos crops, we recommend a trip to the nearby beaches of Punta Umbria.

Holidays on the Costa de Almería

The eastern part of Andalusia is formed by Almeria coast. Despite the fact that it’s not well known by international tourism, it deserves special attention, especially for its fantastic beaches and unique, almost desert landscape of the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata.

Among the most famous beaches of the park you must visit Los Genoveses Beach; Playa de Monsul, very close to San José, a picturesque fishing village and one of the Natural Park main destinations; a little further north, near the border of the park, awaits the impressive Playa de los Muertos, one of the world’s top diving destinations due to its crystalline waters.

Apart from San José, it’s also important to take notice of spectacular places as Mojacar, Isleta del Moro or Rodalquilar, in the very heart of the Natural Park. Months of May and October are the most recommended to travel to the coast of Almeria, because it enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate: almost always sunny and near-absence of rainfall.
