Costa Del Sol, Spain

We will be in Costa Del Sol, Spain in early September and are considering taking day trips to Tangiers, Morocco, Gibraltar and/or Granada. Any hints or suggestions about any of these areas? Are they worth going to?

The places you mentioned are all interesting and all different, and all very manageable day trips. Granada is unique with the lovely Alhambra and cool refreshing gardens. Gibraltar - the rock is such a sight! And the taste of England in Spain is really fun. Although I haven't taken the trip to Morocco I've talked with lots of friends who have. I've heard it's best to go with a group or a trusted guide. You didn't mention visiting any of the white towns - that's another thing you may want to add to your day trips. Ronda, hanging onto the side of a cliff, is fantastic. And Mijas is fun and so close to the coast you can go just for an hour or so. Have fun!

We felt that Gibraltar was a waste of time when there are so many wonderful other places to see in Spain. We waited hours to get in and out and found it to be expensive and dreary. The rock is much more impressive from outside.

Strongly recommend visiting Granada and the Alhambra -- it is truly a magnificant site.

Good Spain Website is www.tourspain.es Has ferry, bus, railroad, tour guides, auto rental info, etc. What town are you staying in? Malaga, Torremolinos?

Thanks for the suggestions! We have two nights booked in Torremolinos (sp?) but the other two are free to spend elsewhere in the Costa Del Sol area and will be flying out of Malaga. Any suggestions on a nicer place to stay? We'll have at least one free day in Costa del Sol to enjoy the beaches etc.
