LONDON, October 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
This year, travel company Cosmos has launched holidays to a great new selection of destinations from East Midlands Airport. From summer holidays to winter packages, there's something to suit every holiday type and budget.
As of late summer 2012, East Midlands airport has been whisking British holidaymakers to four new sunny hotspots. Whether you're drawn to the sandy beaches of Faro or the exciting nightlife of Malaga, it's a great time to check out what's on offer for the upcoming months.
Faro, the southernmost city of Portugal, is known for its alluring combination of urban chic and beach culture. From strolling around the cobbled streets of the Old Town to exploring the Archaeological Museum, there's plenty to do between sessions in the sun. Tuck into extraordinary traditional Portuguese fare at Taska, or try the city's best sushi at Sushi Ya.
Malaga is the sunny gateway to Spain's Costa del Sol. The coastal city's cultural kudos precedes it, having been the birthplace of celebrated artist Pablo Picasso. In a nod to its artistic history, Malaga now plays host to a great selection of galleries and museums. Be sure to check out the nooks and crannies of Tetería El Harén, a teahouse with live music every evening from Thursday to Saturday.
Palma, Majorca and Alicante are also superb destinations to consider when looking into taking advantage of the new locations offered by Cosmos from East Midlands Airport. Visitors to Palma can flock to the surrounding beaches, while those wanting to see a bit of scenery should head for the Soller Railway (Tren de Soller). The quaint train ride from the Art Deco terminal in Palma goes all the way to the sleepy mountain town of Soller. Welcomed by mouth-watering gastronomic treats on arrival, it's a great day trip for families and foodies alike.
Alicante is the second largest beach-lined town of the Valencia region. As well as a vibrant nightlife, there's plenty for culture vultures to sink their teeth into in the form of the Museo de Arte Contémporaneo de Alicante (MACA). Seafood fans can't miss Piripi, a restaurant known for its daily dishes of freshly-caught fish.
