The best senior holidays in Spain

by Antonio Felipe


Malaga, one of the oldest cities in the world, is an amazing destination for senior holidays in Spain. It lies on the Costa Del Sol (“The Sunny Coast”), a popular destination on Spain’s southern coast. The dynamic city is home to plenty of shops, amazing restaurants, a range of high-quality hotels, and annual cultural events (including the Holy Week celebration and the Málaga Film Festival). You’ll also find a wide variety of exhibition centres, including Malaga Picasso Museum, the Pompidou Centre and the Colección del Museo Ruso en Málaga.



You’ll find Granada at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains in Andalusia. The star of the city is undoubtedly the lavish Alhambra part palace, part fortress, and surrounded by greenery and rose gardens. Get lost in the streets of the old Arab town of Albaicin, marvel at the beautiful Moorish architecture, or take a relaxing bath at the Hammam Al Andalus. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you can ski the Sierra Nevada mountains, or watch a flamenco show in a cave in the gypsy quarter of Sacromonte.



Vibrant nightlife, quirky architecture, and eclectic cuisine all spring to mind when you think of Barcelona. It’s a city that will charm you at every corner – whether you’re strolling through the cobblestone lanes of the Gothic quarter or dining at one of the first-rate tapas bars. Make sure to visit the Sagrada Familia, and other works of art by Antoni Gaudi (including the Colonia Güell and Casa Vicens). This lively city is also home to some beautiful beaches. You can soak up some sun at Garraf and Ocata beaches, or dine on some seafood along the busy Barceloneta Beach.



Seville is famous for its flamenco, tapas bars, and orange trees that infuse the city with the scent of their blossoms. Visitors can explore the narrow winding streets of the Santa Cruz Quarter, go back in time at the stunning Alcazar Palace, and admire the views from the ancient cathedral tower and Metropol Parasol. Seville is a city rich in character and history, making your senior holidays in Spain enriching and unforgettable. Watch the flamenco dancers’ move passionately to exotic and wistful music, dine on paella and gazpacho in the city centre, or stroll through the Iglesia de la Caridad – the most beautiful baroque church in Seville.



If you’re chasing the sun, Alicante is the perfect destination in winter. With 3,000 hours of annual sunshine and mild weather, you can enjoy most of the activities usually reserved for summer  – including beach trips and golfing. Since Alicante is centrally located on the Costa Blanca, there are plenty of fantastic beaches to choose from – including La Playa de San Juan, La Albufereta, and Playa del Postiguet. For scuba divers, the sea around the Isla de Tabarca located off the coast are teeming with interesting sealife.


If holidays in Costa Blanca sound like your idea of paradise, then you’ll love Marjal Costa Blanca Camping and resort. Marjal is a popular destination for senior holidays in Spain, as it has modern facilities, endless entertainment for all ages, comfortable bungalow and caravan accommodation, and a temperate climate.
