When it comes to beach destinations in Spain, Malaga is your best bet for some heat. Located in the Costa Del Sol, Malaga’s beaches are sheltered by the Sierra Nevada Mountains so you can go ner-ner-ner-ner-ner at the wind and rain, which won’t touch you. With flights starting from around £60 in October, £40 in November and £34 in December, you could pick up a total holiday bargain.
