Costa del Sol highlights

Malaga's Pedregalejo Area
A local favourite, Malaga's Pedregalejo area bustles with people enjoying the beach or having a drink on a seafront terrace.
Playa de Maro Beach
Hiring a kayak is the best way to explore the stunning coves and beaches around Playa de Maro Beach.
Benalmádena Cable Car
Take in views of the Costa del Sol coastline and the coast of Africa from the top of Mount Calamorro.
Grilled Sardines in La Carihuela
Fresh sardines are skewered onto sticks and grilled over fires on the sand in La Carihuela, Torremolinos’ old fishing district.
Nerja's Balcon de Europa Viewpoint
Overlooking Nerja’s beaches, the Balcon de Europa viewpoint is reached directly from the city’s buzzing main street.
Benahavís

Much More Than Just Sun

With warm waters and sun-drenched beaches, the Costa del Sol certainly lives up to its name. From north of Gibraltar to Almuñecar, this part of Andalusia is a top destination for holidaymakers of all budgets.

Puerto Banús attracts the world’s super-rich, and many moor million-pound yachts in its harbour. Glamorous Marbella also has designer shops, an orange tree-lined square, and easy access to Costa del Sol golf courses.

Quieter Estepona has a low-key harbour and several good Costa del Sol hotels for kids, while Fuengirola’s long, sandy beach is overlooked by a Moorish castle and Roman ruins. On its outskirts is Mijas waterpark, named after the hill town offering fantastic views of the Costa’s rugged mountains and pristine beaches.

Another waterpark - Aqualand - is in Torremolinos, a vibrant resort with many Costa del Sol hotels by the beach. Long and sandy, it stretches all the way to lively Benalmádena, from where dolphin watching trips depart. Also here is Tivoli World theme park, and a cable car just opposite goes up Monte Calamorro.

With its impressive Alcazaba castle overlooking Roman ruins, Málaga, the region’s capital, was the birthplace of Picasso, and a museum and his former home can be visited. Nerja to the east boasts a 19th-century aqueduct and the Balcony of Europe promenade above its beach.
