Most of the Euro 2012 games will be shown on the screens in the Panorama Bar; however, the big games involving Spain, Ireland and England (Most of our guests hail from these countries) will be shown on the fantastic 6 square metre screen in our Moonlight Theatre!

Alcazaba de Malaga

The Alcazaba as night falls...

Anyone visiting the Costa del Sol from the 6th to 10th June (2012) will have the opportunity to take part in a unique and special experience: A night tour of Málaga’s famous Alcazaba fortress.

For those of you who are not familiar with this emblematic monument in Málaga’s city centre: The Alcazaba is a Moorish fortification which was built in the 11th century. This impressive structure is built on hill in the centre of the city and comprises two walled enclosures; the first is built around the topography of the hill and the second wall – located within the perimeter of the first – is dotted with defensive towers. The beautiful gardens and magnificent enclosures make this one of the most popular tourist attractions in Málaga. Read More…

Málaga Airport’s Second Runway Almost Ready for Take-off

Second runway at Malaga airport

Anyone who has flown in to Málaga Airport will probably agree that the new airport terminal is an impressive piece of engineering; with its sleek and modern design and extensive services, this gateway to the Costa del Sol is now one of the largest in Spain and indeed Europe.

Well, it’s about to get even more impressive with a new2,750 metrelong second runway! The expected date for the opening of this new runway is next month (June) as the airport authority – Aena – are still awaiting the completion of the certification process as well as the correction of a few minor faults which have been detected; don’t worry, it’s nothing serious, they just need to check some of the signage ;-)

Malaga airport already has capacity for a not-too-shabby 37 take-offs and landings per hour. The new runway will increase this figure to a massive 72 take-offs and landings per hour, or 9,500 passengers.

There are only 4 other airports in Spain – Madrid, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Gran Canaria – that have 2 runways, so with the addition, Malaga airport really does join the airport elite :-)

The addition of this second runway to Malaga airport will hopefully mean more inbound flights full of tourists and visitors coming to stay at Sunset Beach Club ;-)

Cudeca Walkathon 2012

Next Sunday 20th May 2012, the promenade in front of Sunset Beach Club will once again host the Cudeca Walkathon fundraising event. All funds raised at this event are for the Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice in Benalmadena so we’d like to encourage hotel guests and visitors to Benalmadena to take part in the Walkathon and help us support this much needed charity.

SunsetBeachClub will once again be involved in the organization and sponsorship of the Walkathon which is hoping to build on the success of previous years.

Everyone is welcome and the Cudeca team and sponsors do a great job to ensure there are plenty of activities for a fun packed day! The meeting point will be the promenade area just in front of Sunset Beach Club and participants can register for the walk from 9:30am.  Read More…

Don’t Miss the ‘Super Moon’ this Weekend!

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

Super Moon 2012This weekend we’ll have the chance to witness a phenomenon known as a ‘Super Moon’.

Super Moons are larger and brighter than usual and are caused by the shape of the Moon’s orbit which is actually an ellipse, or oval, shape. The Moon orbits our planet once each month and during this time reaches a point farthest from the Earth (an apogee) and a point closest to the Earth (a perigee); the latter is what we will experience this Saturday the 5th May 2012.

This will be the biggest full moon of the year – about 16% brighter than average – and will create larger than normal tides. Apparently, at perigee, the moon exerts approximately 42% more tidal force than when it’s at apogee!

Experts say that the best way to view this weekend’s Super Moon – the one that will get the best effect – is to look out for it just after it rises, when it’s close to the horizon. If you can manage to get the moon behind buildings or trees, an optical illusion will make it look even bigger!

If you’re staying with us at Sunset Beach Club, we recommend you grab a spot on the terrace of our Panorama Bar or head down to the promenade and watch the ‘Super Moon’ from there. Don’t forget to take some photos and post them on our Facebook Page ;-)

Cheetah at Selwo Aventura

Many of our hotel guests are often on the lookout for new and exciting activities and attractions when they come and stay with us. One of the most popular attractions is the Selwo Aventura wildlife park. I actually visited the park with my family recently so, for the benefit of those of you who have yet to visit this amazing location, here’s an account of our fun day at Selwo Aventura.

Located in the hills near the coastal town of Estepona, Selwo Aventura is approximately one hour’s drive from Sunset Beach Club. Although it might seem a little far to some, it’s well worth the drive!

Parking is easy as there is a large area just in front of the main entrance to the park. Once you’ve collected your entrance tickets it’s time to experience the magic! The park is split into four main areas or routes for you to visit, so I’ll give you a brief summary of what you will find in each and give you a few tips as to things you’ll want to see :-) Read More…

The Silver Beats - Beatles Tribute

The Silver Beats

Last night the Moonlight Theatre rocked to the sound of local Beatles tribute band, the Silver Beats. This is the first time this fantastic band form Málaga have played at Sunset Beach Club; however, judging by the audience response to their Beatles rendition, it won’t be the last!

Formed 17 years ago, The Silver Beats play songs from the ‘Fab Four’s’ early years influenced by 50’s rock and roll tunes from the United States and when they started composing their first – now classic – songs.

As you can see from the photos and the videos, the Silver Beats put on a great show. Not only do they look the part – even their instruments are all original replicas – but their unique mix of voice, guitar riffs and great rhythm made for a great evening of entertainment. Read More…
