Torre del Mar voted 'top destination'
One of the Costa del Sol's coastal resorts has made it on to the TripAdvisor TraveCast Top ten World Destinations for 2009 list.

Torre del Mar – which is located in the Axarquia region – was named as the sixth best destination in the world.

Don't 'miss out' on Malaga
Those enjoying holidays in Spain have been urged not to "miss out" on the charming city of Malaga.

The Telegraph yesterday (October 19th) reported that many people simply pass through Malaga in their way to other destinations, without realising that the city boasts many cultural attractions and historic sites.

For holidaymakers staying at La Manga Club and hiring a car, Malaga makes for a great day out and with sights such as Alcazaba and Malaga Cathedral, visitors certainly will not be disappointed.

Writing in the Telegraph Sankha Guha described Malaga as a "buzzing" city with a "lust for life", home to numerous attractions such as the Picasso Museum, the fortress of Gibralfaro, which stands overlooking the city.

Work begins on Malaga historic site
Renovation work has begun on the historic Arab wall in the Malaga town of Cartama.

According to Euro Weekly, local authorities will spend almost half a million euros to restore the famous site to its former glory.

Commenting on the restoration plans, the town's mayor, Jose Garrido, said: "This project is for the renovation of the upper section of the wall, which is the most visible part of this ninth-century fortress."

It is estimated that the project will take around eight months to complete, with contractors having to reinforce the wall before work can begin.

Britons are 'not concerned' by exchange rates
Over half of British holidaymakers say they are not concerned by fluctuations in exchange rates and would not let an unfavourable rate deter them from travelling within the eurozone.

In a recent poll carried out by online travel community TripAdvisor, 69 per cent of those surveyed said they would continue to travel within Europe regardless of currency fluctuations.

Furthermore, 26 per cent of Britons are planning to take an activity holiday over the next 12 months, with five per cent even hoping to engage in some extreme sports.

Holidaymakers looking to enjoy the beach, while at the same time engage in some activities this winter, should look no further than La Manga Club in Spain.

Holidaymakers admit to 'over-packing'
More than half of holidaymakers pack too many clothes when travelling abroad, it has been revealed.

Research carried out by Holiday Extras found that 58 per cent of those taking holidays in Spain and other destinations pack 'everything but the kitchen sink'.

Just three per cent of people said they under-pack, while 39 per cent of people claim they are always adequately prepared.

Commenting on the findings, Matthew Pack, web and marketing director at Holiday Extras, said: "I believe there is a fine line between packing too much and packing too little.

'Lazy beach holidays' top British wish list
Lounging around on the beach, with a glass of sangria and a good book, is the ideal way to spend a holiday, according to a majority of Britons.

A survey by Holiday Extras has revealed that almost 60 per cent of Britons prefer beach holidays over any other type.

Mike Whiting, the company's managing editor, said that with the miserable UK weather to deal with, it was little wonder that people enjoyed beach holidays.

"Plus, as people's working lives seem to continually encroach on their personal time, the desire to get away and do nothing at all is more appealing than a holiday featuring a hectic schedule," he furthered.

Murcia is 'half-term hotspot'
Murcia looks set to be a popular destination over the half-term holidays – if recent figures released by Skyscanner are anything to go by.

The flight search engine ranked Murcia as one of its top ten most searched for destinations, beating the likes of France, Italy and Greece.

Situated in the south of Spain and with a mild climate all year round, it is little wonder that holidaymakers are clamouring to book flights to Spain.

Not only is Murcia home to some of Spain's finest beaches, the area is also home to numerous cultural attractions, including the stunning Cathedral de Santa Maria.

Holidaymakers fear the 'Facebook factor'
In days gone by Britons would go on holiday, let down their hair and make friends – safe in the knowledge that once the sun had set on their break they were unlikely to ever meet again.

However, times have changed, and for many people, the prospect of their holiday romances looking them up on social networking sites is enough to strike fear into their hearts.

A recent survey carried out by moneysupermarket.com found that 48 per cent of Britons now "think twice" about dishing their details out when on holiday.
