BEIJING Giants Willie McCovey Jersey , Sep. 24 (Xinhuanet) -- Despite the continuing economic crisis across much of the eurozone, the sun is continuing to shine on luxury tourism in Spain. A record number of foreign tourists visited Spain this summer, welcome news for a country mired in recession and mass unemployment.
Welcome to the Costa del Sol, one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe.
This 160 kilometre strip of sand is the place where tourists from countless countries and across the social spectrum gather to spend a few days in the hot Spanish sun.
From what Malaga and Torremolinos locals call the "spaghetti and chips brigade" to the rich, old and "nouveau" in Marbella Giants Willie Mays Jersey , there is something to suit all budgets and tastes on Spain’s most famous coastline.
In 2012, local authorities in Andalucia began a strategy called "Elite Collection" designed to lure the super-rich to their shores.
The area in and around Marbella now offers dozens of luxury hotels, beach clubs, limousine rentals and private aircraft companies. The rich and beautiful flock to the town of Puerto Banus.
In this marina luxury yachts float by, just next to the main street.
Edi Koubers Giants Will Clark Jersey , holidaymaker, said, "We don’t feel the crisis here. I think Puerto Banus is a world within a world. We were also in Portugal and there we saw the crisis. Here in Spain you don’t see it as much as over there".
Despite looking like an old fishing town, Puerto Banus is a relatively new resort dating back just over 40 years.
In the 1970’s, Marbella began a spectacular growth as a tourist destination and began attracting the super-rich to this area.
Now Giants Pablo Sandoval Jersey , dozens of luxury boutiques and shops around the marina area do good business all year round.
Mylne Giglio, manager of Cartier store, said, "Our clients have always maintained the same purchasing power, regardless of the crisis. Every time they want to treat themselves they come straight to our shop".
But the impact of luxury tourism in the region can be best seen in the spectacular development of real estate and sales over the past three decades.
The Spanish real estate bubble may have burst Giants Orlando Cepeda Jersey , but here in Marbella it’s business as usual for those wanting to buy or rent a luxury villa.
Meanwhile, the calm and transparent waters of the Mediterranean make the ideal place for sailing. So despite economic difficulties, it seems that luxury tourism is still making waves in Spain.

In our family this Christmas decoration has been a tradition for as long as I can remember. Every year my mom would bring out her felt, glitters and the hot glue gun and me and my siblings would craft ornaments for each other and for our parents. We would cut felt in the shape we liked. We would attach an object to the felt and cover the Christmas ornament with glitters. After attaching a string we would hand out the ornaments to each of the family members and we would decorate the tree each with our own Christmas ornament. Give it a try and before you know you will have started a great family tradition that everybody looks forward to, year after year.
