Those planning last minute holidays in Spain should make sure they pack plenty of suntan lotion - as experts are predicted a scorcher.
The latest weather forecasts from the Spanish Meteorological Agency suggest that the south of Spain will enjoy temperatures of up to 30 degrees in the south over the bank holiday weekend - great news for sun worshippers holidaying in La Manga Club.
It seems the south is the place to be this weekend from a sunshine point of view. Central Spain will enjoy less impressive though still respectable highs of 24 degrees.
Music lovers planning on holidaying in La Manga Club might be interested to learn that Antony and the Johnsons are planning a show in Murcia.
The band, fronted by Antony Hegarty, will be playing at the Auditorio de Murcia on May 7th - one of only three shows the New York-based outfit will be playing in Spain.
Tickets for the Murcia gig are still available, but those interested in renting a car in Murcia and driving to the gig may like to act soon, as the other two dates - in Madrid and San Sebastian - have already sold out.
News of the European tour comes after critical and commercial success for Antony's other band, the disco-influenced Hercules and Love Affair.
One of the essentials to pack before holidaying in La Manga Club is some absorbing reading material.
That is the advice of actress Emilia Fox, who believes the essentials for the perfect holiday are "a good book, good company and great food" - as well as sunshine, preferably.
Fox, who has starred in adaptations of novels such as Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, told the Telegraph that having a book with you can even make the travel as enjoyable as the holiday itself.
"I love the feeling of being transported to another world when I'm travelling, then arriving at my destination," she explained.
Lessons from a professional golfer or a tennis coach could be high on the agenda for many London-based holidaymakers, it has been suggested.
A survey found that nearly three-quarters (73 per cent) of adults in the English capital would like to pick up a new skill while away.
Meanwhile, 52 per cent of Britons said in the YouGov and VisitScotland poll that they would like to take part in a relaxing activity ruing their break.
Perhaps golf holidays in Spain could be a good option for these people, as the year-round sunshine makes it a perfect destination for those who enjoy a gentle day on the fairways.
Those taking flights to La Manga in future could be greeted by an altogether bigger and better Alicante Airport.
The hub is to be the subject of a 353,000 euro (£316,500) investment that will increase its daily operations from 18 to 40, allowing even more people to take holidays to La Manga Club.
Completion of the expansion is expected by the end of the year, the World Aeronautical Press Agency reports, and forms part of a plan to increase capacity to 20 million passengers a year from 2020.
As well as enlarging terminal space, the airport is working on adding parking facilities for 4,200 vehicles and 73 buses.
There could be a larger number of people taking flights to La Manga from Gatwick Airport than usual this weekend, it has been suggested.
Staff at the London hub are bracing themselves for some busy shifts as they welcome bank holiday travellers, with trips to Alicante Airport, which serves La Manga, among the most popular.
Gatwick is expecting to greet 325,000 passengers between Friday May 1st and Monday May 4th, with Alicante the fifth most in-demand destination.
As the airport is likely to be busier than normal, management has advised people to help keep the flow through security gates as smooth as possible by being prepared.
Buying property abroad is no longer the preserve of the upper echelons of society, according to one firm.
Foreign exchange brokerage Caxton FX revealed that it has seen a huge surge in enquiries from want-away Britons since the Budget last week.
James Hickman, managing director of the company, said it is not necessarily just the rich and famous who are seeking a new life abroad.
"These people are not celebrities or high profile people who figure in the Rich Lists but simply clients with some capital," he explained.
Holidaying in La Manga Club can be an even more relaxing experience if holidaymakers are happy that they have secured themselves the best currency deals in advance.
Moneysupermarket.com claims there are a number of steps that British holidaymakers can take to make sure they are getting the most out of their holiday spends.
Ordering currency in advance, using credit cards that carry no charges for use overseas and taking a prepaid card are all ways that people can save money while abroad.
Loose Women stars Carol McGiffin and Sherrie Hewson have been spotted soaking up the sunshine on a holiday in Spain.
Pictured in the Daily Mail, the bikini-clad presenters spent time sipping champagne by their hotel pool and chatting to other guests.

Several other celebrities also made an appearance at the launch, including former Eastenders actor Joe Swash and television presenters Angellica Bell and Michael Underwood.
Couples holidaying at La Manga Club this August might like to take the short trip to Almeria for a day of dancing in the sun.
Global dance festival Creamfields is returning to Andalucia on August 15th, it has been confirmed.
Names already on the bill for the all-day dance music party include Tiesto, Trentemoller and Rex the Dog - with many more to be announced over the coming months.
A number of reduced-price tickets for the event will be available for those who book early, set at a very tempting 35 euros (£32).
