The Costa del Sol rightly deserves its name – translated it means “Sun Coast”. And the sun shines in the popular holiday region in the south of Spain almost always, that’s for sure.
Year round sunny days has made the Costa del Sol a popular family holiday destination, with many beaches that extend along the more than 160 km long coastline. Fine sand and clear water with temperatures of up to 25C provide pure relaxation.
If you don’t want to spend your vacation just sun bathing and splashing in the water, the cities of the Costa del Sol offer a large variety regarding leisure. The city of Malaga, geographical centre of the region not only has a nice shopping district situated in the charming historic centre, but also a large cultural offering. Malaga is the birthplace of Picasso, and here you can visit his childhood home and his works at the Picasso Museum.
You can enjoy an incredible view over the Old Town from the Alcazaba, a Moorish fortress from the 11th Century. If you feel like visiting a real bull-fighting ring, Malaga is also the right place to be.
The coastal town of Marbella also has a lot to offer: The Museo del Grabado Espanol is considered the best Spanish Museum for engraving art. The charming old town is definitely worth a visit; the original, narrow, flower-filled streets are a particularly attractive contrast to the financial exhibitionism of the “Golden Mile” and the marina of Puerto Banus.
Marbella offers more action in terms of water sports: Whether kite surfing, deep sea fishing or diving, there something for everyone. And last but not least, Marbella has some of the best golf courses the province has to offer.
If you enjoy solitude in nature, this is also splendidly possible in the region; in the mountainous countryside can be found numerous lovely spots and routes for hiking, which we recommend especially during spring, as the countryside is really gorgeous.
As a popular holiday destination, the Costa del Sol in Malaga, offers of course plenty of accommodation in all price ranges. Upon arrival you can arrange car hire at Malaga airport, for you to fully enjoy your summer holiday. Whether you prefer a cozy apartment or prefer to stay at the hotel: The Costa del Sol fulfills every wish. Enjoy the Spanish sun on the Costa del Sol – it’s well worth a visit!
