3rd February, 2012
As you've probably guessed by now, we love
telling you about our fantastic holiday destinations around the world and by bringing you some background info on them, we hope that this will help give you some great ideas about planning your 2012 holiday
! But if you are after some more recommendations for great holiday destinations then listen up! Because our next one is an absolute winner (and this is only the first of many great locations in the area that we will be telling you about in the future!)
First up is Torremolinos
, one of the most popular towns on the Costa Del Sol
, which is (if you don't already know) a long stretch of southern coastline that stretches for over 150km and is located in the Andalucia region of Southern Spain. The town originally started off as a little fishing village in the 1920's but as the amount of tourist started to increase, so did the size of the village until it became what it is today, one of the most frequented destinations in the country, by not only international tourists but spanish tourists also due to the multicultural feel of some of the areas!
Torremolinos is most likely best known by many, for it's numerous beautiful beaches and fantastic weather. El Bajondillo is the closest beach to the town, where you can (depending on the season) have a go at some top water activities including windsurfing, water skiing, kite surfing, snorkelling as well as being able to rent pedal boats and enjoy regular boat trips, which sometimes offer the option of going to watch the dolphins swim just off of the coast! Now that would be something special! If getting wet is your thing, then you can also enjoy a spot of swimming at Aqualand, which is claimed to be the biggest watermark in the Andalucia region!
If you want to have a break from the beach and the water, then you can enjoy the pedestrian-only Calle San Miguel, which is the perfect destination for shoppers as the area is lined with shops and runs from the centre of Torremolinos, straight down to the beach where you have to descend a winding stepped footpath, which of course is great fun to go down but as you can probably guess, not too much fun climbing up! But once you have climbed them, there are many perfect opportunities to treat yourself to a well deserved lunch at one of the many lovely restaurants in the area as well as a coffee at one of the local bars or cafes.
Once you have paid a visit to Torremolinos, we are sure that you will understand why the town is one of the top places to visit in the Spain and that you will again take advantage of one of our last minute holidays to the region so you can do it all again!
