Costa del Sol Attractions

If you are planning a visit the Costa del Sol in 2017 or if you own a holiday home in southern Spain, you will find a wealth of great things to see and do.

The top ten things to do on the Costa del Sol include:

Marbella Golf

Boasting over 60 golf courses, Marbella and the Costa del Sol is a magnet for golfers from all over Europe. Championship courses combined with 320 average days of sunshine every year keep sports fans flocking back for more.

Fuengirola Bioparc

This incredible zoo allows the animals to roam in a semi-natural environment, and attracts visitors from all over southern Spain. Well worth a visit. A play park and miniature farm for small kids, and open from 10am.

Selwo Park Estepona

If you want to get up close and personal with the bigger mammals, take a trip to Selwo Adventure Park. This large park is home to over 200 animals from every continent.

Aqua Land Mijas Costa and Torremolinos

These two fabulous water parks are situated in Fuengirola and Torremolinos, and offer visitors some white knuckle rides, along with some great attractions for smaller kids.

Water sports

If you are a fan of water sports, there is no better place to spend your holiday than the Costa del Sol. Windsurfing, kitesurfing, water skiing, sailing and jet skiing can all be enjoyed along the coast, from Malaga to Sotogrande.

Visit Puerto Banus

Home of the jet-set and the place where many UK celebrities choose to spend their holidays, Puerto Banus first became famous in the 1970´s when Sean Connery and Diana Dors owned houses here. Still swish and stylish, this upmarket resort is home to some of the best restaurants, and the biggest private boats on the Costa del Sol.

Feria

If you want to throw yourself into the local traditions and festivals of southern Spain, visit one of the fabulous annual town ferias. Malaga Feria takes place every August, Marbella Feria in June and Fuengirola Feria in October. Prepare yourself for loud music, dancing and partying until the early hours.

Marbella Old Town

Marbella Old Town transports visitors back to the days when this glitzy town was a fishing village, and the cobbled streets and narrow alleyways lay testament to old Andalucia. Charming old restaurants and pavement cafés add to the ambience of this authentic region of southern Spain.

Picasso Museum Malaga

The Picasso Museum in Malaga was inaugurated by the King and Queen of Spain in 2003, and this restored mansion is the perfect place to house the collections of Pablo Picasso, who was born in Malaga.

Nerja Caves

The world famous Cuevas de Nerja are situated two miles from the town of the same name, and were discovered in 1957. A tour of the cave unearths cave paintings of turtles and snakes, dating back 15,000 years and the world´s biggest stalactites.
