Staysure, the leading retailer in insurance for over 50’s, recently surveyed all of their customers to find out which Spanish holiday resorts they liked the most.
With Spain boasting over 5,000 miles of beautiful coastline, sunshine all year round and warm seas it was a tough decision, but the results are in!
So get in your swimsuit and lather on the sun cream and take a look at the 3 most popular Spanish resorts – according to Staysure customers…
1. Benidorm, Costa Blanca
At number one in our survey is the ever popular resort of Benalmádena, Europe’s biggest holiday resort with over five million tourists arriving every year. The town is famous for its two outstanding beaches, Poniente and Levante, both of which have spectacular promenades and marinas. The old town is also worth wandering around to experience its hustle and bustle – and you should head to the plazas of Santa Ana, Castelar and Castell for some dreamy views of the beaches and skyline. Moreover, there is a wide variety of restaurants and bars to explore.
2. Benalmádena, Costa del Sol
Hot on the heels of Benidorm is sun-drenched Benalmádena. Highlights include some 12 miles of coastline, 15 beaches, two golf courses and the largest concentration of amusement parks in the province. What’s more, its old town Benalmádena Pueblo is filled with narrow streets, sugar cube style houses and quaint squares so picturesque you’ll want to move here. The town’s super-yacht filled marina has also been voted the best in the world several times. While a cable car from the coast up to the mountains is an exhilarating trip for the thrill seekers amongst us!
3. Fuengirola, Costa del Sol
Just next door to Benalmádena lies your third favourite Spanish resort – Fuengirola. A former sleepy fishing village, Fuengirola now offers up-market tapas bars, chic boutique shops and a wide selection of restaurants. Sun worshippers can top up their tans on 5 miles of beaches or stroll down the length of the town via the newly renovated promenade. It’s also got one of the best micro climates in Spain, thanks to its privileged position in the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas mountains.
