It’s not something that great numbers of us want to have to talk about, but it’s nonetheless an unavoidable question for many Britons as we enter 2023: if you fancy a holiday break but you are anxious to ensure you can afford it, which potential destinations out there would give you the best “punch for your pound”?
While we all hope that 2023 will be a better year for many of us than 2022 was, one thing that hasn’t immediately gone away is the cost-of-living crisis squeezing many struggling Brits.
So, it may intrigue you to read the results of recent research indicating that the Costa del Sol could represent especially great value as a place to holiday this year.
Spain’s ever-popular “Sun Coast” comes out on top
As reported by the Express, a travel agent asked 2,000 holidaymakers to vote for the best-value holiday destinations around the continent, drawing upon their first-hand knowledge.
Positioned first in the ranking was the Costa del Sol area of Spain, followed by the Greek island of Kos and the Algarve region of Portugal. Antalya in Turkey and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur in south-eastern France rounded out the top five.
This outcome won’t, of course, be a great surprise to those who have previously used a company like Simply Shuttles in order to arrange Costa del Sol golf transfers, or who have sampled the many fine hotels, restaurants, and heritage attractions up and down the region.
Nor is the Costa del Sol only a superb-value holiday destination at the height of the ‘touristic’ summer. As we have also recently written about on the Simply Shuttles blog, it makes an excellent winter holiday destination too, thanks to such factors as the hospitable temperatures and the lack of summer crowds.
And it seems that word is getting around about the Costa del Sol’s enduring attraction and relevance as a place for a holiday break, even during a cost-of-living crisis; Spain’s Andalucia region received almost 600,000 international tourists in November 2022, which was 22.1% up on the figure for the same month in 2021.
