One for the golfers
You don’t have to show a golf club in exchange for entrance into Alhaurin but the small town in Malaga is usually associated with teeing off. Designed by one of the best golf players in the world, Severiano Ballesteros, it is made up of 18 holes and is set amongst some incredible scenery. Golf fans have described the resort as a paradise and it is tailored to be used all year round. At New Years, the main hotel puts on a huge firework display and guests are encouraged to all come together and celebrate in style.
Find the hidden gems of Alhaurin
Away from the golf resort, Alhaurin is a quaint village that still shows some snippets of insight into the region’s history. Three Roman columns stand proudly in front of the town hall in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento while across the village you can find a Moorish archway that dates back to the 12th century. These small traces of the village’s past add some character to the maze of cobbled streets that make up the Alhaurin. The best way to find the hidden gems while on holiday in Alhaurin is to explore the backstreets. Try taking a left instead of a right and see where you wind up. If you don’t fancy the risk, just head to the bar and share a drink with the locals, they’ll be more than willing to offer you their recommendations.
Just a dot in the province of Malaga, holidaymakers may find themselves wanting to explore a little further afield. The main city of Malaga itself is where the night owls fly, the nightlife is big, bright and brash and certainly not for the feint hearted or the light drinkers. Further along the coast you’ll find the whitewashed village of Mijas. The vibrant buildings almost feel like you’ve escaped to Greece and the beaches that are on offer are luxurious.
