Bird watching in MalagaBoasting an impressive total of 380 different bird species, the province of Málaga is becoming an interesting option for bird watching enthusiasts from all over Europe. 

The conservation of vast natural parks and areas as well as the important bird migration taking place from August to November have contributed to the area’s popularity as an ideal destination for Bird Watching holidays.

This rich bird life and the fact that there are over 10 million tourists who travel every year to bird watch make the promotion of the area as a top Bird Watching Holiday destination a logical step for the Malaga Province Tourist Board.  Read More…

Benalmadena to Launch Foreign Tourist Attention Centre to Help Victims of Crime

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

Foreign Tourist Attention CentreAccording to the Spanish Secretary of State for Security, less than one out of every thousand tourists who visit Spain are victims of crime; a low figure which contributes to Spain’s popularity as a safe and popular holiday destination. 

That being said, this low crime doesn’t console the unlucky few who do fall victim to petty thieves who take advantage of occasional lapses.

These unfortunate incidences usually mean having to go to the police and file a report,  phone banks to cancel credit cards and contact local consulates or embassies to report stolen passports. This could mean hours spent at the local police station without a qualified translator and valuable holiday time wasted.  Read More…

Lion Cub at Zoo de Castellar

Simba the lion cub

A few weeks ago I spotted an interesting photo on a friend’s Facebook page; she was petting a lion cub!!! Turns out the picture was taken at ‘Zoo de Castellar’ a very special place which serves as a rescue centre for all sorts of animals. 

Started as a private animal sanctuary way back in 1998, it actually opened to the public in 2002; this has to be one of the Coast’s best kept secrets!

Of course, with two young children, we had to go and see what all the fuss was about. After a quick check on Google Maps, we prepared a pack lunch and set off, for what turned out to be, an amazing family day out. Read More…
