One of the reasons why the Costa del Sol is a popular choice is that it's easy to get to, the gorgeous beaches and the warm weather. The Costa del Sol receives an average of 300 days of sunshine annually and basking in warm year-round temperatures (between 25 and 30 degrees C in the summer and rarely lower than 14 degrees C in the winter).

The average flight time from London to the Costa del Sol is approximately two hours and forty minutes, while from northern airports like Manchester it takes closer to three hours. From Malaga airport, it is easy to get to the likes of Marbella, which is served by regular buses, Fuengirola, which is connected via rail, and Torremolinos, which can be reached by taxi.

In and around the Costa Del Sol

There are many destinations on the Costa del Sol that are worth exploring - we've singled out a few of the best below:

Torremolinos

Torremolinos is great for families as it's got fantastic beaches, exciting theme and water parks, a wide range of sports facilities and historical and cultural attractions within its old town. There is a great selection of family-friendly hotels, too, while parents will certainly be glad that it's not a long drive from the airport, either.

Marbella

Marbella is renowned for being something of a luxury holiday destination and its high-end marinas filled with amazing yachts certainly enhances its reputation. As well as its star appeal, it boasts some beautiful beaches, outstanding restaurants and a number of world-class golf courses. Marbella's historic quarter, meanwhile, has retained much of its authentic charm and is a delight to explore.

Nerja

For a more peaceful break on the Costa del Sol, head east of Malaga to the lovely town of Nerja. There are wonderful coves and bays right next to the traditional town, which is home to a collection of landmarks that are worth exploring. One of the other highlights here is the Caves of Nerja, which is a system of nearly 2km of subterranean chambers that feature amazing rock formations, as well as a number of cave paintings dating from the Paleolithic period.
