Germans' 10 Holiday Hotspots on Spain's Costa del Sol

During a predictably sun-soaked week in June 2017, visitors from Hamburg couldn’t resist these 10 holiday hotspots in Málaga province – “A cultural hub” according to The New York Times (August 2016):

  1. Panoramic sea and mountain views from my penthouse apartment, Fuengirola
  2. Fuengirola Bioparc with Golden-Cheeked Monkeys serenading us throughout the day
  3. Chilled bottles of white wine in Taberna Volapié, Fuengirola, accompanied by triangular slices of creamy Manchego Cheese
  4. Comfy accommodation and much-needed laps in the pool, Cerros de Aguila, Mijas Costa
  5. Best table and seats in Merendero Cristina chiringuito (beach bar), Marbella seafront
  6. Gambas pil pil (hot spicy prawns), juicy steaks and pepper sauce, Salamanca Restaurant, Fuengirola
  7. Scenic country drives through Alhaurín, Coín, Pizarra, Antequera, El Torcal
  8. Cold Bacardi & Cokes and small-money card games, J&J Copas Bar, Fuengirola
  9. More Gambas pil pil, swordfish, chips and Jägermeister, La Gamba Restaurant, Fuengirola
  10. Richie’s Sports Bar, Las Chapas, Marbella, a sleek ultra-modern venue for footie-mad family and friends

Only ‘downer’ of the week: waiting more than 1.5 hours for Fuengirola tourist train that failed to turn up one sweltering afternoon!
