Start the day with a hearty English Breakfast

There is no reason why, when you're on holiday, you shouldn´t enjoy the same pleasures as at the weekend at home - aside from a cloudless sky and brilliant sunshine of course. On a Sunday morning, or any day for that matter, you can wake up with a craving for a full English breakfast - especially if you've had a big night out; a full English can seem like the only cure.

Some crispy rashers of bacon, sausages, baked beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, fried or scrambled eggs, black pudding, and a round of toast or fried bread, with an accompaniment of tomato ketchup, brown sauce, or Lea and Perrins can prepare you for whatever lies ahead of you, whether you're enjoying a day of relaxation and recovery on the beach, or a hike up La Concha; after a hearty breakfast, you'll be ready for anything.

To find an English breakfast in Andalucía you do not have to go far. Gibraltar has much to offer in terms of an English breakfast - being a British colony they have access to all the traditional brands and produce you would expect from an English breakfast, such as black pudding and Cumberland sausages, that you may struggle to find elsewhere in Andalucía.

On the Costa del Sol, in areas such as Torremolinos, Marbella, Puerto Banus, Estepona and Fuengirola, where there is a large population of British ex-patriots and tourists, you will also be able to find a large number of cafés, bars, and restaurants offering a full English breakfast. Whilst some cafés will only serve breakfasts in the morning, along the Costa del Sol you will also find a number of eateries that serve breakfast all day. This means that if you're on holiday, you can make the most of sleeping in a little later without the worry of rushing out to get your breakfast before they stop taking orders.

Brunch in Andalucía also has the advantage that it comes with a great view. Many beach bars and chiringuitos offer a full English breakfast, so you can sip on your coffee, Earl Grey or orange juice whilst enjoying the breathtaking vistas of the Mediterranean and a cool sea breeze.
