Andalucia

A slice of traditional Spain

Andalucia is Spain’s southernmost region, stretching from the Mediterranean Sea in the east to the Portuguese border in the west. If you’re looking for quintessential Spain, you’ll find it here – Moorish castles, hillside pueblo blancos, and gorgeous sandy beaches all vie for your attention. It’s great for experiencing Spanish traditions, too – bullfighting and flamenco both originated here.

Costa de Almeria

In the east is the Costa de Almeria. Here, you’ll find spaghetti western-style desert landscapes, huge swathes of golden sand, and beach resorts like Roquetas de Mar.

Costa del Sol

To the west of the Costa de Almeria is Andalucia’s most famous stretch of coastline – the Costa del Sol. Along its sandy beaches are lively resorts like Benalmadena, Marbella and Torremolinos, as well as quieter spots like Nerja.

Costa de la Luz

Nudging the Portuguese border is the low-key Costa de la Luz. You won’t find many high-rise resorts here – instead, expect traditional towns and rugged, windswept beaches. Those in the know head for Isla Canela, a quiet island with low-key fishing villages and a golden sandy beach.

Moorish cities

Andalucia’s charms aren’t confined to the coast, either. Head inland and you’ll find beautiful Moorish cities like Granada, Seville and Cordoba.

Places To Stay In Andalucia

Britain’s love affair with the Costa del Sol has just passed the diamond anniversary point. It was slightly more than 60 years ago that holidaymakers from the UK started to head to Spain’s southern coast. Today, the relationship couldn’t be stronger. Not only do thousands of visitors travel over here every year, but 300,000 expats now call this place home.

The Costa de la Luz couldn’t be more different from its Costa cousins. Facing the Atlantic on Spain’s most south-westerly stretch of coast, it’s Spain without its make-up – a place where the scenery and traditional way of life hold sway over high rises and holiday crowds. Thomson Airways operates two different flights to the Costa de la Luz – one to Jerez and one to Faro – so you can pick and choose depending on what you’re after.

Tucked into Spain’s south-east corner, between the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, is the Costa de Almeria. This place missed out on the 1960s visitor boom that hit the other Costas because of poor road connections. As a result, it’s now far less touristy than its neighbours. You’ll find laid-back resorts, traditional whitewashed villages and beaches untouched by the holidaymaking masses.
