Those looking for an alternative party venue to Ibiza next summer should consider booking cheap Jet2.com flights to Malaga, on the Costa del Sol. There are some great nightclubs just 10 minutes from the airport, many of which could rival those on the Balearic Island.
There’s a different kind of underground scene in Malaga, however, and one that is very cool indeed. It’s the Cueva de Tesoro, or Treasure Cave, a unique geographical phenomenon that was once deep under the sea, but now sits high and dry above the Mediterranean. Located between the popular resorts of Rincon de la Victoria and La Cala del Moral, it is one of only three such cavern complexes in the world, and totally unique in Europe.
Be Wowed By Caverns
