WHEN TO GO
The Costa del Sol opens its doors to tourists all year round. For temperatures around 29°C, July and August are your best bet. That said, spring and autumn are lovely and warm, and even in winter, the mercury sits between 16°C and 19°C.

Health & Safety
You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Spanish nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment. For the latest health and safety info, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/spain/health
