  • Array

With winter in full swing here in Malaga, Costa del Sol have been busy making sure that your holiday is a fantastic experience from start to finish with a Spain roundup post, Malaga City Guide, Hunt for Spanish Organic Food and much, much more.

What?s more, with friendly low cost air fairs and low cost AGP airport transfers there’s still plenty of time to treat yourself to one more summer break, so why not visit Skyscanner and book a cheap flight and check out some great value, last-minute deals and make sure to catch this minibus comparison post to reduce your airport transfers from AGP.

Treat Yourself to a Winter Deal

You could spend a fun mini-break in Marbella enjoying the surf, escape on a long weekend to La Cala Golf to play golf on beautiful greens, or take a romantic break to Puerto Banus and treat yourself.

Ive checked out some latest deals with Easyjet and to enjoy some late winter sun with accommodation and flights, book a seven-night package holiday from ?180 per person.

Theres a new Manchester to Malaga Airport route that has been a huge success and, due to overwhelming customer demand, have increased the frequency to twice weekly during December, January, March and April, linking in with the festivals of Santa Maria in Spain.


Flights to Malaga depart from most UK airport from ?49.99, with package holidays including luxury five-star accommodation on offer too. Also new for winter 2014/2015.

With all of this talk of sunshine, let?s not forget about the upcoming ski season either. Sierra Nevada near Granada offers some great piste skiing. Less than 90 minutes form Malaga City you have everything on your doorstep ski and sun in one day cant be bad!

Early bookers are guaranteed a great deal so they can save their pennies for the apris-ski. Finally, don?t forget to join a loyalty scheme, where you can earn points for every pound you spend. Points can then be turned into free flights to most European destinations.

For example 600 points will secure you a one-way flight to many European destinations. Don’t miss your chance to earn free flights ? So sit back, relax and enjoy your flight.

Marbella Tattoo Adventure

As a rite of passage, getting a tattoo must be high on the list.

But inking your body during the working week is simply something you never get round to ?too busy, too undecided on what, where and who to do it. Go on holiday, however, and pah! there goes the rule book.


You’ve reinvented yourself as a super-relaxed, spontaneous kinda guy/gal. You’re drunk on one pina colada, you’ve left your hairstyle au natural and you have to look at an imported UK newspaper to find out what the date is.

Cue the tattoo. Happy wheels is a great flash game. This is what happened to me in Marbella, Spain. Usually my pain threshold is set to: stub my toe, burst into tears. On the Costa, however, the promise of being needled by a sexy pirate of a tattooist got me into the chair and holding a sugary Coke to stop me from fainting.

Two hours on I had an art-deco design between my shoulder blades and orders to avoid the sun and chlorine for three weeks. In the height of summer damn!

Tattoo artists don?t care. He said you couldn?t buy that kind of publicity. He was right. But catch him on a good day and he will ink you a masterpiece in his supercool studio, with the fan whirring, the beats booming and Marbs Town dragging its heels from fiesta to siesta below? and if you have an old boyfriend you committed to ink that needs deleting, well, as every pirate will tell you, X marks the spot.

And where better to show it off than my following stop, Barcelona Woo!
