Why Choose the Costa del Sol?
The Ideal Location for your Events, Parties and Holidays in Sunny Spain!
The Costa del Sol is the Costal area of the Malaga region in southern Spain, it is easily and cheaply reached from most parts of Europe, with a flight time of just 2.5 hours from the UK. We consider the Costa del Sol, to be one of the most diverse destinations in Spain, if not Europe! The Costa del Sol, really does have something for everyone, young and old, no matter what your taste, you will find it here, you just have to know where to look!
The Costa del Sol, as a whole is quite a big place, a region rather than an area and is made up of many resorts, towns and rural villages, with the City of Malaga at it's heart. It has a modern infrastructure, with good public transport and an outstanding climate, bringing hot sunkissed summers, with mild winters, while the rest of Europe freezes!
It's Possible you had the wrong impression?
The Costa del Sol, for some, may still counjure up visions of sprawling 1970's holiday resorts, high rise hotels, streets lined with tacky souvenir shops, dodgy currency exchanges, karaoke on every corner and countless Expat bars selling English Breakfasts.
Well that can be true, the Costa del Sol still has it's fair share of "tacky" resorts, although, many of these have been better developed over the last few years. However, the Costa del Sol also has much more "refined" areas, traditionally Spansh culture still exists and stepping out of the Tourist Zones, you can see the most amazing landscapes and visit the most delightful of places! The Costa del Sol is one of those destinations that can be anything you want it to be!
Costa del Party can help you find the right Costa del Sol destination.

Once Visited, Often returned too!
There is something magic about the Costa del Sol and the Andalucia region of Spain, from the "laid back" feel, to the hospitality of the Andalucian people. Many people choose to return to the Costa del Sol, year after year, to Enjoy it's sun drenched beaches, nightlife and ambience.
