The Beckett List 2015: Spain Trip Planner

12 day trips & weekenders in Andalucia, Gibraltar & Morocco

3D-Book5Since moving west from Fuengirola to the quirky village of Los Barrios, I’ve spent a lot of time trying to escape it find out what lies beyond.

Along the way, I’ve discovered some amazing trips in the Spain/Gibraltar/Morocco Golden Triangle, and The Beckett List Spain Trip Planner was born.

It shares 12 of my favourite secret escapes, calendar-style – one for every month of the year – all do-able from the Costa del Sol.

  • Discover the world’s weirdest outdoor art gallery
  • Watch giant tuna being landed at sea
  • Rent a pavement pitch for Easter in Jerez
  • See Gibraltar without getting stuck in the queue

If that sounds tempting, you can sign up for your FREE copy at the foot of this page.

If you are already subscribed, you should see a link below to download it.

Written by a local (me) it’s bang up-to-date, with tips you wouldn’t find in a conventional guide.

It’s also interactive, with links to carefully-selected video and website so you can:

  • Armchair travel to experience the flavour of the trip before you go
  • Browse the menus of recommended restaurants
  • Go direct to hotel booking sites to reserve rooms
  • Locate destinations more easily on Google maps (essential if your driver’s a man!)
  • Share with family visitors and house guests so they can plan their own days out when you’re too busy

All new subscribers will receive the guide FREE – as well as ideas for new trips throughout the year, posted in my monthly newsletters. 

Just scroll down to the bottom (footer) of this page to Sign up for the Sizzle and enjoy!

      It’s a guide rather than a book but with lots of links to help you get the most from it. Enjoy!

    Sounds just like what myself and partner are looking for. We live in Casares Bahia and love day and weekend trips.

    We have lived in the pretty mountain village of Gaucin for several years, but we now have time on our hands to explore more of Andalucia and would really appreciate a copy of your guide for a few ideas! Many thanks in advance.
