Car Hire Spain

No matter which part of Spain you are visiting, when most people come to Spain for a holiday they are thinking of hitting the beaches or the pool to catch up on much needed rays. It is also worth bearing in mind though that there are vast amounts of stunning scenery to enjoy all over Spain and for those looking to explore a little further and make the most out of their car hire in Spain, we have compiled a mini list of recommended day trips out in the car.

First location up: the Costa del Sol

1) Gibraltar
Gibraltar is located at the western end of the Costa del Sol and is very easy to reach from all locations along the Costa del Sol via the A7 motorway. For a slice of Britain on the Iberian peninsula Gibraltar makes for a fun day out, if only to go and stock up on your favourite products from M&S or Morrisons!

2) El Chorro and Malaga's very own "Lake District"
Around an hour from Malaga you will reach 3 massive lakes nestled into the Andalucian countryside. Known as Spain's very own Lake District, you really will expect to see Lake District Cottages sitting on the hillsides with these 3 man made lakes that were created by putting a dam across the Guadalhorce river gorge. The lakes are a popular spot for sunbathing, picnicing and enjoying water sports including canoeing and boating.

3) Granada
No holiday in Andalucia would be complete without a day trip up to Granada, home to the Alhambra palace. Granada is located around an hour and a half from Malaga and is a city rich in history and culture. The Alhambra, a Nasrid palace in the 13th and 15th centuries is a truly majestic Moorish wonder, overlooks the city of Granada and is a great day out for all the family.

4) Marbella and Puerto Banus
Visit the playground of the rich and take a stroll around the port of Puerto Banus where you can see a fabulous selection of boats moored up, lunch in one of the water side restaurants and shop til you drop in the boutiques dotted around the port. Marbella is a beautiful location on the Costa del Sol and it is easy enough to drive around the city and park up to enjoy a wander along the beach or walk around the old town.

If you're already thinking about your summer holiday 2010, why not consider swapping your Cumbrian Cottages for a holiday in Andalucia. If you're also thinking of hiring a car when you are next in Spain make sure you remember to pack your driving license with you and if you still haven't passed your test make sure you book your driving lessons with a reputable Surrey driving school such as www.simplydrivinglessons.co.uk.
