A route through the Costa del Sol by car

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

This road route in Malaga generally covers from the capital city of Malaga, all the way through Marbella to Estepona. It’s a route of sun and beaches where you’ll find some of the most touristic spots, villages and natural sites of the whole Mediterranean.

Route from Malaga

The itinerary proposed by the Ministry of Development begins in Malaga city and passes through the towns of Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Marbella, including Puerto Banus, until it reaches Estepona. To the north of marbella you’ll also find beautiful natural sites up towards the mountains, such as the Sierra de las Nieves (the Snowy Mountains) and Sierra Bermeja.

If you were to tour this route from Estepona, you could actually extend it passing Malaga city and reaching the town of Nerja, and, although this municipality belongs to the Axarquia route, it’s highly recommended to visit as it offers great beaches and hosts the famous Nerja caves.

The Costa del Sol’s tourist board describes and highlights the following characteristics of the area in a short, but very interesting, summary: “The coastal facade on the Costa del Sol, situated in the meridional fringe of southern Spain, has an extension of around 161 kilometres. Its beaches, benefitted by an exceptional Mediterranean climate with average temperatures in summer of around 25 degrees, provide a unique variety of settings, even small hidden bays in a purely natural environment. The hours of sun to enjoy on the beach in summer seem endless. With over three hundred days a year of clear blue skies, without a single cloud, a notable warm sea with an average temperature of eighteen degrees and, in August, can even surpass twenty-four degrees. The summer season can extend beyond the months of July, August and September. There are several and varied swimming areas, with a complete relation of services that have deserved the recognition of the European Union with the awarding of blue flags. The majority of the beaches have modern beach bars (or ‘chiringuitos’ as they are locally known) right on the sand to enjoy the autochthonous gastronomy, with a menu dominated by fresh fish at very reasonable prices”.

Five days and nights of music – Primavera Sound 2012

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

When: 30 May – 3 June 2012
Where: Parc del Fòrum, Diagonal Mar
Cost: 190€ for festival pass, or 70€ for day ticket

At the end of May Barcelona hosts one of the top festivals in Europe – Primavera Sound 2012. Back for its 11th year, the festival continues to focus on independent music and is already gearing up to put a spring in Barcelona’s step once again.

With a long line-up of indie heroes this open-air festival is a rare treat for those with an ear for alternative pop – Primavera Sound has been graced by more musical legends than you could start a record label with. In previous years it has attracted headliners such as Lou Reed, Neil Young, Pulp, the Pet Shop Boys and Arcade Fire to Barcelona’s stage.

Primavera Sound by Berto Gracia

The event’s main stage is situated in the vast Parc del Fòrum, with the Mediterranean sea for a backdrop. If you don’t feel like forking out 70€ for a day ticket, the festival will include two free concerts near the Arc de Triompf called ‘Primavera a la Ciutat’ on the opening and last days of the festival.

Like lots of other top festivals in Barcelona, unofficial events and a feel-good atmosphere are all part of the experience. It’s a great time to come to Barcelona, even if you aren’t a dedicated muso with some cash to spare.

Cut to the chase – who’s playing?

the cureThe Cure
Perhaps the first truly alternative band to enjoy widespread chart success, the legacy of the Cure, who formed in the 1970s, is hard to overestimate. With a hit-heavy show that’s largely retrospective, seeing The Cure live is a must for fans of post punk and new wave music.

Björk 03 (2)Björk
Iceland’s queen of alternative pop is one of those very rare acts who have multi-million album sales and critical acclaim in equal measure. Never afraid to push the boundaries, her latest album ’Biophilia’ was released as an iPhone app and she’s just as innovative as a live artist.

rufus wainwright (2)Rufus Wainwright
This singer-songwriter is yet another genre-defining act at this festival. His introverted and confessional work also has a decadent strain that makes him stand out from his traditional roots. Wainwright, influenced by both opera and the gutsy songs of his famous dad, puts on a solo show that promises to be a marked contrast to more raucous headliners.

franz ferdinand by starbright31Franz Ferdinand
Scottish hit-making machine Franz Ferdinand is one of the most successful bands of the past decade. Bristling with a quirky energy and an arsenal of catchy and unique material, they remain in high demand even if they’ve left their chart-topping heyday behind them. They also have a substantial Spanish following, with their last single reaching number two in the Spanish charts.

the cure by genericitisWilco
Over the past 20 years Wilco have become known as an indie band who draw on country music and the 60s and 70s for inspiration. It’s been a successful formula. They’ve been applauded by the music press for their rootsy sound and diverse array of influences and are one of the most acclaimed and influential indie bands of recent times.


The official festival website is a great source of info and has managed to cover virtually every question you could think of, from where to leave your jacket to where the toilets are. Although it’s open-air, Primavera Sound isn’t a camping festival. Due to the popularity of this event, which takes place at the outset of the main tourist season in Barcelona, it’s a good idea to start booking tickets and accommodation now. Hostels are likely to be packed out at this time, but booking yourself a holiday apartment could work out well, especially if you’re travelling as a group.

We guarantee you’ll pay the lowest price for your apartment that’s out there on the internet – or we’ll give you double the difference back. Just plug in your details below and away you go.
