Quite literally meaning the ‘Coast of the Sun’ this coastal area, in the Spanish province of Andalucía, is a renowned and popular holiday destination for people all over the world. Once you arrive it’s easy to see why. The beautiful year round Mediterranean climate almost guarantees a sun filled holiday. But if in summer that sun becomes too hot then the beach is always within easy reach.
It doesn’t have to be just about the sun, sea and sand though. Often little is said about the other gems waiting to be discovered in this region. There are many cultural treats in store in the towns and cities. But if you prefer natural wonders then nature trails on coastal paths or up in the hills are waiting for those who want to revel in the flora and fauna this area beholds.
As a family holiday destination the Costa del Sol has it all. From sunbathing on beaches to walking in the hills there’s certainly more to discover in this area than you might think.
The Costa del Sol is steeped in culture and history. Whilst most people don’t stop for long in the city of Malaga it has some historical treasures to visit. From numerous museums, galleries and monuments to the lovely Cathedral all set within narrow ancient streets this place is worth spending some time in.
As for the nature lovers then the diversity of the landscape offers plenty. Coastal dunes and bays, cliffs and estuaries all harbour a multitude of species to be sought out.
If you’re looking for outdoor activities then there’s an abundance of options and you can be pretty much guaranteed good weather for it! Why not hike up Mount Calamorro, or take the cable car if you’re feeling a little less energetic. There’s hiking, biking, horse riding, water sports, waterparks, golf and loads more fun to be found, there’s certainly going to be no end of opportunity to keep the kids entertained!
