Holidays in Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol is heaven for sightseers. A good number of the city's best attractions are dotted near this appealing neighbourhood, including the Malaga Airport Museum and the Pablo Ruiz Picasso Cultural Centre. Don't forget to put the Molino del Inca and the Benalmadena Golf on your schedule too. For another perspective on the city, organise a day at Arroyo de la Miel and Carihuela, nearby neighbourhoods just waiting to be explored.

If you're up for discovering some highlights in the city centre, head to Gibralfaro Castle and Alcazaba. You'd be crazy to leave the area without stopping at the Malaga Amphitheatre and the Picasso's Birthplace as well.

There's no saying what you'll come across while strolling around the intriguing collections at the Museo de Arte Precolumbino and the House of the B-Fashion Doll. If you don't want to miss anything, see if you can hop aboard a guided tour.

Locating places for the kids is an important task when preparing for a family holiday. Keep an eye open for Sea-Life, Selwo Marina, the Benalmadena Cable Car and Sea Life Centre.

No matter how many times you may have seen them before, the playful critters at Butterfly Park of Benalmadena, the Crocodile Park and the Garden of Eagles still have plenty of surprises up their sleeves.

Aqualand Torremolinos, Tivoli World and Playa Mini Golf + burger are some awesome places to take your kids for an action-packed day of adventure.

A good way of checking the ocean's temperature is by taking your shoes and socks off and going for a paddle. Find out what the water's like at El Saltillo Beach, Los Alamos Beach, the La Carihuela and Las Yucas Beach.

Something unique about this suburb is its nearby public parks. Amid all the action, there are plenty of places to stretch out in the grass. La Bateria Park and Paloma Park are some good options.

Costa del Sol Square, Bil-Bil Castle, the Colomares Castle and Stupa de la Iluminacion can give you a glimpse back into the past.

San Miguel Archangel Parish, the Templo Hindu, Stupa de la Iluminacion and Santa Domingo Church offer sightseers an opportunity to see the region's spiritual side.

Insider tips for Costa del Sol travel

  • Playa Bella: A restaurant that is easy to overlook in Cadiz, Playa Bella is a yellowing shack-like structure that hides a romantic Spanish eatery with a breath-taking interior.
  • The Orange Tree: This Old Town Marbella eatery offers great food in an area often overlooked by the crowds. Wander into Plaza General Chinchilla for a look.
  • La Fructuosa: Get a view of the Rock of Gibraltar and the African continent from your room at La Fructuosa, located in the Gaucin area of the Costa del Sol.
  • Cortijo Valverde: Spend the entire holiday in the hotel that is like a little slice of Spain. The Cortijo Valverde offers pools, gardens and more.
  • El Puente Nuevo: For the most breath-taking photos of the area, take a hike up to the El Tajo gorge near the town of Ronda. Take the picture on the Puente Nuevo, a bridge that spans across the gorge for easy access.

Best time to go on holiday to Costa del Sol

The abundance of sunshine makes any destinations along the Costa del Sol into an amazing holiday. The average temperature in the winter rarely dips below the mid-teens, but the summer temperatures in July and August can easily reach beyond 32ºC. The best time to visit the coast is between April and early June and between September and mid-October when the temperatures are still warm. In addition to the great weather at these times of year, you will find open hotels and restaurants with a much smaller crowd than you'd find in summer. The Costa del Sol Summer Ferias begin in late May, so target those dates when planning your trip. Reserve your rooms on ebookers in advance to get a great room with a view of the Mediterranean and beaches.
