Considered as one of the most popular holiday hotspots, the beautiful Costa del Sol is the ideal year-round destination. Whether you’re seeking sunshine, sand and sea in the summer months or an escape from the harsh winters back home, there is nothing that quite matches the undeniable charm of this vibrant part of Spain. Kick back and relax in the numerous beach resorts and marinas, from idyllic seaside towns to the busier resorts like Puerto Banus, or embrace a captivating culture away from the beach with plenty of things to do and discover on your Costa del Sol holidays.
A short jaunt along the coast will welcome you to the town of Fuengirola, an ancient town abundant in stunning architecture and laid-back charm. Lovers of water sports will be in their element here, with everything from sailing and diving to jet-skiing. If you’d rather keep your feet dry, pay a visit to the Mijas Golf Resort where you can practice your perfect swing in stunning surroundings.
If the beach bores you, why not swap your beach towel for a guide book and head to the oldest city in Spain. Malaga is the home of spectacular architecture and a majestic cathedral as well as the best preserved Moorish castle in the country. Meanwhile, if you’re looking to delve into the past on your Costa del Sol holidays, head to the fascinating Caves of Nerja. Hosting a myriad of archaeological treasures and prehistoric remains, a visit to this prime attraction is sure to unleash your inner Indiana Jones.
If you’ve got the kids in tow, however, you’ll find numerous attractions and activities to keep them captivated. Those jetting off on family holidays to the Costa del Sol should head to Tivoli World in Benaldema, where you’ll find an abundance of thrilling rides for little ones and big kids. Make a splash on the log flume or get your heart racing on the Pasaje del Terror – if you’re feeling brave, that is!
