What to Do In Costa del Sol

Are you trying to figure out what to do in Costa del Sol? The area is quite large, and consists of many small towns scattered across the southern portion of Spain. If you like soaking up the sun, you’ll love the nearly 160 kilometres of beautiful coastline. If you like to golf, you’re in for a treat. From water sports, to shopping, to visiting tourist hotspots, Costa del Sol has something for you!

The Malaga region is known for its beaches. The brilliant azure colors of the Mediterranean Sea contrast beautifully with the soft sands. Hotels claim the real estate along the beach, allowing visitors to enjoy the wonders of the beachfront life from their hotel rooms. The area is presumably named for the long standing reputation of having abundant sunshine during the summer. In Malaga, any time is a good time to relax on the beach. What could be better than bathing in the warm sunshine, while breathing the crisp Mediterranean air?

Duquesa-portThe golf resorts in the Costa del Sol, though sometimes cliché, are some of the area’s main attractions. In fact, the region has the highest density of golf resorts in continental Europe. Malaga itself boasts more than forty. The amount of resorts and clubs in the area can be attributed to the abnormally nice climate. It is estimated that the sun shines, on average, 300 days out of the year in the Costa del Sol. Many international golf championships take advantage of the prime climate conditions. The Volvo masters, the Spanish Open, and the World Championship all take place here.

Tourism has played a crucial part in the development of the region. The area is known for having great hiking trails. If you’ve never tried spelunking, there is always a first time for everything! For those a little less daring, there are plenty of sports facilities and gymnasiums that offer indoor workout opportunities.

Of course, there are also theme parks, spas, festivals, and restaurants to visit. After learning all the area has to offer, you may have a hard time choosing the best itinerary for your holiday. The question is no longer, “what to do in Costa del Sol”? Rather, you’ll find yourself asking “what NOT to do?”
