Many people who live and work in the UK but hail from sunnier climes can find the long winters in the UK a bit depressing. However, one of the great things about living in the UK is that it’s a real springboard into the whole of Europe, much of which enjoys a warmer and sunnier climate for a large portion of the year.
And with so many different flights that can be taken from all over the UK today, pan-European travel has become even easier and even cheaper than ever before. For those who don’t like the hassle of sorting out separate flights and accommodation, an even easier option is to book a package holiday. Simply choose which regional airport you’d like to fly from and then take it from there. For example, there’s a huge variety of Manchester Malaga holidays to choose from, at a range of different prices.
Malaga makes a great place to escape to for some warmer weather and some relaxation in the sun. It’s on the Costa Blanca, famed for its miles of beautiful beaches, but there’s plenty going on in the area away from the beach to keep you entertained too.
Going to Malaga slightly off-peak means that you’ll be able to enjoy the sunshine without having to share the space with as many other tourists as you would in July and August. For example, it’s a great place to go in autumn and spring. Then you get the best of both worlds, warm weather without the crowds.
If you’re just after some rest and relaxation, then Malaga has all that you need. Many of the hotels have fantastic spa facilities and there’s a choice of beaches to spend your days on. If you like people watching head for Playa Polo where a series of little coves get quite crowded even at quiet times of the year. You’ll find plenty of restaurants behind the beach. For those who like more space around them on the sand, Playa Benajarafe is a 4km stretch of sand in Velez Malaga, just a short distance from the main resort.
Malaga is just one example of an easy beach escape from the UK. There are plenty of other places to explore in Europe, but this has to be one of the best in terms of the facilities that you’ll find there.
