A spring break on the Costa del Sol

After a long, cold winter, a spring break on the Costa del Sol may be just what you need. Spring is one of the best times of the year to visit Marbella and the Costa del Sol. And if you’re wondering what makes it so good, here are ten reasons why.

Great weather

Perhaps the biggest reason to take a spring break on the Costa del Sol comes in the weather. Warm temperatures – hot enough to sunbathe – and lots of sunshine are a given during springtime.

Longer days

Spring starts with an extra hour of daylight, perfect for making the most of your holiday. Spend the longer days sightseeing, playing golf or just relaxing in the sunshine.

Not too many people

Unlike a summer holiday, a spring break on the Costa del Sol comes without the crowds. You can make the most of all the attractions and you’ll have some of them, including the beaches in Marbella, almost to yourself.

Great offers

As spring isn’t high season, you’ll be able to make the most of flight and accommodation deals for your holiday. For the very best prices, take your spring break on the Costa del Sol during the week.


Spring is the prettiest time of the year on the Costa del Sol when the countryside and mountains (and the golf courses!) are carpeted in spring flowers. Enjoy some of the lovely walks within easy reach of Marbella and see the scenery in full bloom.


Andalusia is famous for its flower-decked patios and during spring these stunning features come into their own. Cordoba – an easy day trip from the Costa del Sol – is the best place to see patios, but you’ll also see some lovely examples in resorts on the Costa del Sol. Don’t miss those in Marbella Old Town and Estepona.

Spring events

Spring is one of the busiest times of the year with lots of events on the Costa del Sol. Highlights include the Malaga Film Festival, Malaga Gastronomy Festival and Marbella Fair.

Easter processions

If you book your spring break on the Costa del Sol to coincide with Easter, you’re in for a treat. The Easter processions in Malaga rank as some of the best in Spain and you can also some stunning processions at Costa del Sol resorts.

Spring art

Combine your spring break on the Costa del Sol with a touch of great culture – visit an art exhibition in Malaga. This spring you can enjoy Kandinsky at the Russian Museum, Bacon and Freud at the Picasso Museum (also with a new collection of Picasso paintings), Starck at the Pompidou Centre and Jia Aili at CAC Malaga.

Because you deserve it

And if after reading the previous nine reasons you should book a spring break on the Costa del Sol, you’re still not convinced, this one should make that decision for you. Go on, book it now – you know you deserve it!

Andalucia`s Gateway

It always makes a good pub quiz question. What is the geographical centre of Andalucía? Historically, and semi-officially, Antequera (near the northern border of Málaga province) is considered to hold that honour – at least for tourist brochure purposes. However, earlier this year a report by the National Centre for Geographical Information argued that the exact centre is in the small Córdoba municipality of Monturque. Other key cities in the region have their own claims to fame: Sevilla, the official capital; Cádiz, the oldest city in the western world; Málaga, the Andalucian capital of international tourism… 


Golf and Tennis… Marbella’s Sporting Haven

When it comes to golfMarbella is recognised as Spain’s premier destination. The town has the highest number of courses of any municipality in Spain, but it is just as much (even more) about quality as it is about quantity. Several of the courses have hosted European Tour events (as well as the World Cup in 1973 and 1989) while others such as Río Real are regular venues for premier national and international amateur tournaments. The same applies to tennis
