Holidaying Around Malaga

January is a popular time to plan your holidays and if you’re wondering where to jet off to this year, we’d recommend the coastal towns around Malaga on Spain’s sunny Costa del Sol.

As well as being beautiful beachside resorts, the towns of Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Fuengirola have plenty of good value holiday rental properties, lots to do and excellent access into Malaga city and to the airport. They are connected by a good train line, unlike everywhere else on the Costa del Sol, so you don’t need to have a car. This saves you money and stress and gives you much more flexibility for exploring.

Torremolinos is closest to the airport and has plenty to offer, with wide sandy beaches, brilliant nightlife, shopping and lots to do. There’s a new tourist office in the centre of town which can help you make the most of this great area and is open Monday to Friday 9-2.30.

Benalmadena is next down the coast and within easy reach of Torremolinos and the airport. This lovely town has something for everyone, a beautiful marina, amazing nightlife, lots of family friendly activities and of course some lovely beaches.

If both these places sound good to you, then we’d recommend this 3 bedroom apartment between Torremolinos and Benalmadena and within walking distance of supermarkets, bars, restaurants and shops. The apartment is arranged over one floor, with a south-east facing terrace, a comfortable living and dining area and three good sized bedrooms, one with bunk beds, and there’s a shared pool and gardens.

A little further along the coast towards Marbella is Fuengirola, the final town on the train from Malaga and the airport. Fuengirola has wonderful beaches, great restaurants, a large international community and plenty of things to do, including an excellent zoo and water park. It is great for families, couples and groups and there are lots of good value holiday rental properties to choose from.

This cosy 2 bedroom holiday apartment is located in Carvajal, between Benalmadena and Fuengirola. Carvajal has a train station, so you can easily pop to Fuengirola and Benalmadena and up to Malaga too. Or if you fancy some exercise, you can walk along the promenade to either Benalmadena or Fuengirola, or all the way to Torremolinos if you really want to stretch your legs. The apartment has amazing sea views and is just 5 minutes’ walk down to the beach. It is well maintained, has a stunning south facing terrace and roof terrace, a spacious lounge and dining area, a modern kitchen and two bedrooms.

Choosing a location close to Malaga, gives you easy access to the airport and the beautiful city of Malaga, with its gorgeous port, historic centre, amazing shopping and art galleries. Each town has its own character and plenty to offer, if you’re not sure which one to choose please contact us and we can discuss the perfect area and Costa del Sol holiday rental for you.
