The Costa del Sol is predominantly known as a sun and beach destination; however, what many visitors don’t realise is that there are some amazing and beautiful locations to discover by travelling into the interior towns, villages and countryside.
Well, we’re happy to introduce a new excursion to our – already ample – list of great day trips on offer at our Leisure Desk: Introducing the new excursion from our new collaborating company, Parknatur. You’ll be taken on a unique trip which will allow you to discover the ‘other’ Andalucia; rest assured, it will seduce your senses!
Parknatur will be offering daily excursions (Monday to Friday) which will take you on a truly memorable adventure into the Biosphere Nature Reserve of the Sierra de las Nieves, approximately40 kminto the mountains. Here’s a brief summary of what you’ll get to see on this great day out: Read More→
The Costa del Sol is known for its wide choice of street markets – or flea markets, as they are sometimes referred to. As visiting these markets seems to be on most of our guest’s to-do lists, we thought we’d put together a short and concise guide featuring the most popular markets along the coast.
Many of the local street markets combine flea markets and boot sales, so for the sake of this guide, we’ll just refer to all as street markets. Although we haven’t included all the markets which take place throughout the week, we have tried to include all the ones that we’ve actually been to and that our guests have recommended. Read More→
Don’t be surprised if you are walking down the street in Benalmadena next weekend – from the 22nd to 25th March 2012 – and come across groups of singers performing a cappella! You’ll have witnessed barbershop singers and enthusiasts showing off their harmony singing talents.
Benalmadena will welcome approximately 600 barbershop singers for the 4th annual convention of the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers (SABS). Delegates will be flying in from the Americas, the UK and from all over Europe.
Barbershop singing originated in the United States in the early 1900’s and has since gained worldwide popularity with thousands of singers practising and promoting this unique art form of four-part a cappella singing. Read More→
