The Captivating Costa Del Sol

A sprawling sunshine coast with a glorious set of sandy beaches and enough attractions and sights to keep the entire family entertained – holidays to Costa del Sol are the answer to where your next break should be.

One of Europe’s most popular holiday hotspots, the Costa del Sol captures perfectly the treasures of the Mediterranean sea and climate. The perfect destination for anyone to head to in the summer months, you’ll be greeted with guaranteed sunshine, a lively atmosphere and fantastic infrastructure – a destination that will cater to all manner of tastes.

Revel in the laid-back cool at numerous beach resorts and marinas, including the popular Puerto Banus, or embrace culture away from the sand with a rich history and some spectacular landmarks waiting to be discovered on your Costa del Sol holidays.

Spain’s Sunshine Strip

If you’re looking to kick back and relax on the beach or embark on something a little more adventurous, you’ll find some great things to do on your holidays in Costa del Sol, and you’ll find some fantastic places to stay while you’re there.

Whether you’re looking for cosy apartments, grand hotels with numerous swimming pools or luxury beachside accommodation, you’ll be welcomed to a place where you can linger over cocktails and revel in the sunshine. Indulge in the jet set lifestyle in beautiful Marbella, where you can browse chic boutiques and explore its world-famous marina.

While there, why not head along the coast to the town of Fuengirola, an ancient town where any lover of water sports will feel at home. There’s no better way to dry off from all the water sports than to head on over to Mijas Golf resort for a round of golf on the pristinely kept lawns of this beloved location.

Beyond The Beach

Costa del Sol isn’t all about water sports however, the beautiful area of Mijas boasts picturesque valleys and mountainous terrain, ideal for engaging in adrenaline-boosting biking or climbing for the more adventurous out there. Costa del Sol, despite its assumed identity of being a sun-splashed relaxation hotspot, truly does have the varied options to attract and satisfy any adrenaline-junkie, beach bum or even the self-made historian.

If you’d rather swap the great outdoors for a dose of history on your holidays to Costa del Sol, head to Malaga, the oldest city in Spain. The city boasts some great architecture, found at its most impressive in the fabulous cathedral. Malaga is also home to the best preserved Moorish castle in the whole of Spain. The Alcazaba was built in the 11th century and today offers a great way to learn more about this site and the people that inhabited it. Meanwhile, a must-visit for any keen history buff is the fascinating Caves of Nerja, boasting a myriad of archaeological treasures – from prehistoric remains to paintings that are over 20,000 years old.

You’ll find numerous attractions to keep the kids happy on your holidays to Costa del Sol. If you’re on a family break, look no further than Tivoli World, based in Benaldema. There are many rides to be enjoyed here, with fun for the little ones and plenty of thrills for the big kids.

Boat Trips

There are a variety of choices when it comes to taking to the sea during a holiday in the Costa del Sol. From inexpensive trips to luxury voyages, there is plenty on offer; you can even climb aboard a luxury sail boat if you really want to travel in style. If you're not one for plunging into the depths of the Mediterranean, take a trip on a glass-bottomed boat and you can see the wonders of the underwater world without getting wet. You can also glimpse some beautiful sights on a whale and dolphin-watching safari.

Water Parks

The Costa del Sol is famous for its water parks, and there is no better way to spend a hot day than relaxing in the sun and taking a speedy trip down a water slide when you need cooling down. Torremolinos is home to the biggest in the region, Aqualand. Here you will find slides with breathtaking drops, mystery settings, slaloms, rapids and the biggest tummy-tumbling descent in Europe, at 22 metres high. The Cable Ski park in Marbella is a water park with a difference, and is the place to go if you want to hone your water-skiing technique.

Culture

There is an abundance of things to see and do during a holiday to the Costa del Sol, and with a blend of historic, artistic, and architectural culture, you are guaranteed to find something to suit any taste. Visit the Pablo Ruiz Picasso Museum and the Centre of Contemporary Arts for some artistic edge, or explore Malaga, one of the oldest cities in the world. The Cathedral of Malaga and La Alcazaba are two examples of the many architectural delights you will see. The region is famed for its culinary offerings, so be sure to try some traditional food during your stay.

Shopping

Shopaholics will find it easy to indulge in one of their favourite pastimes while staying on the Costa del Sol. Malaga offers a range of shopping centres as well as some unique boutiques selling clothing, jewellery, art work and even antiques. If you're more high fashion than high street, Puerto Banus is the place to be. This chic and expensive area features the very best designer brands, and is a beautiful area for some window shopping if you don't dare entertain the idea of venturing from the high street prices.
