Competa is a lively village set up in the hills of Southern Spain. A long winding road leads you up into the village and on arrival you are greeted by a vast array of typically white spanish houses set in the mountain. There is surprising lots going on in the town, especially in the evenings. Restaurants and bars galore give you a wide variety of choice and live music can often be heard spilling out from hidden bars. The square is the main focal point housing the local church and here you can sit, watch the world go by and dance to the music if you feel the need. A main hotel in the village gives you access to a pool and a bar and the local shops provide for all your daily needs. Two must do's - visit Sugar and Spice which is run by an English couple and has some great gifts and home ware worth seeing and El Pilon restaurant is a real find, excellent food and toffee crisp ice cream to die for.
Plenty to do for everyone in Costa del Sol - beaches, waterparks, shopping centres, cafes, bars, etc etc. Don't miss a visit to Ronda up in the mountains. A long drive up but the most stunning village you will see as it's built on a gorge, really incredible plus a beautiful bull ring worth a visit. Gibraltor isn't too far away and worth going for the rock apes. Some towns are worth a miss, i.e. Torremolinos, as very British and touristy. Try the Safari bar in Torre del Mar, fabulous food presented in the most unique way. For a real novelty you need to hire a four poster bed on the beach, you've got to see it to believe it!
