Get ready to enjoy the South

The South is always a good place to escape to. Throw yourself into the adventure with your eyes closed. Fill the car with your junk, put your suitcases in the car, grab the children and leave, at that exact moment the word “holiday” rings true. Yes, there is nothing like Andalusia to ensure sun, perfect beaches, ever-lively beach bars, refreshing drinks and fun for all ages, all at your fingertips. So, yes, you heard right: Easter is coming and it’s time to head South!

But out of the whole South that opens before us … where do we choose to stay? On this occasion we’ll dive in and opt for 2 classics: Cadiz (well, the coasts of Chiclana) and Malaga (well, Estepona).

If you stay with the ‘gaditana’ option, you will have some spectacular beaches in which to enjoy the tranquillity and the beauty of one of the best-conserved coastlines in Andalusia. Cliffs, secret coves, beaches with impossible waves in which to show off your surfing skills, taverns where there are endless tapas and parties…. a lot of partying. It is an ideal destination if you are getting away with friends, but if you go with the family, don’t worry: there are a billion ideas for having fun with the kids.

From the beginning you can choose a hotel for families in Chiclana that guarantees you free time. This is possible because the kids will have their mini club, their swimming pool with water games and their special monitors to help them to enjoy their inexhaustible energy while you can lie in the sun, lapping it up in a state of nirvana. After all a little rest doesn’t hurt anyone 😉

In Cadiz do not miss:

– Try a little golf: there are magnificent courses and hotels usually offer discounts.

– Dedicate a whole day to walking around the capital and to viewing its monuments.

– Eat, eat and eat everything you fancy because everything is great.

– Have a drink in the beach bar. A classic.

– Take an excursion through the natural landscapes: don’t forget the camera.

But if Malaga holds more pull for you, be prepared because the coast of Estepona has all that Cadiz has. Here the atmosphere is mainly geared towards families, with the combination of sun-beach-fine foods and partying and this is for all ages. In Estepona there is always something to enjoy with the family, so the best thing to do is, before you take to the road, research the list of activities for Easter in the area and take note of the events that you really can’t miss (and that go beyond the traditional processions).

For rest and relaxation, the most comfortable option is an all-inclusive hotel in Malaga, such as the Saladillo beach resorts, which have everything to entertain you without leaving your facilities: swimming pools, restaurants, relaxation areas, areas for children … And a key location in front of the beach itself.

In Malaga do not miss:

– Visiting the capital: the Picasso Museum, the huge castle that watches over it and its urban beaches.

– Enjoying the lively nightlife of the famous Larios Street.

– Touring the Estepona coastal villages.

– Try spit-roasted sardines by the sea.
