Holidays to Andalucia are all about traditional towns, great nightlife and a second-to-none beach scene. No wonder this slice of Spain is so popular.
Open-all-hours beach resorts and sleepy, whitewashed villages. Cutting-edge restaurants and backstreet tapas bars. When it comes to mixing old and new, Andalucia’s got it just right. It’s got all the mod cons, but without losing the Spanish charm that made it so popular in the first place.
Hit the beach
You’re spoilt for choice on the beach front. The Costa del Sol serves up super-sized sweeps of sand, while Costa Almeria and Costa de la Luz are all empty stretches and rugged coves.
If you’re looking to party all night, you can’t go wrong with the Costa del Sol’s bars and clubs. The big cities like Seville get pretty lively, too. And if you fancy a low-key evening, that’s covered in places like Nerja and Islantilla.
Shop ‘til you drop
Shopping in Andalucia runs the gamut from traditional handicrafts to designer handbags. Browse the boutiques in Marbella, or wander through the weekly markets in Estepona and Fuengirola.
Golfers have got it good here – courses are ten-a-penny in these parts. The course at Club de Golf Valderrama takes top billing, while Istantilla Golf Club comes complete with sea views.

Costa Del Sol
Whoever said you can't have it all hasn't been to the Costa del Sol. Skirting Spain's southern coast, it packs in the full spectrum of beach holidays. Take Benalmadena, for example. What families can’t do in here isn’t worth mentioning. The super-sized stretch of sand is the big draw, and then there’s the Sea Life Centre and theme park to think about. There’s no shortage of bars, shops and restaurants, either. And you can go traditional in its cobbled old town, Benalmadena Pueblo.
