Seem like everyone’s jetting off for the bank holiday except you? Well get your own back and escape once everyone else is back to reality. Just like last year, the Costa del Sol is still hitting the mark for the rich and famous. And it’s not just the carb-dodging TOWIE crew who have been flocking there this summer. Naomi Campbell was papped in Marbella a few weeks ago, and so was Claudia Schiffer. Perhaps that explains why Bradley Wiggins has been spotted there recently, too… it’s easy to jump on the bandwagon. This popular piece of the Spanish coast is just a 2 hour 45 minute flight from London Gatwick. And hotels like the Holiday Village Costa del Sol – just half-hour away from Marbella – are waiting for you when you get there.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for a little bank holiday reading, feast your eyes on this lot…
