Like many parts of coastal Spain, the region’s dramatic and spectacular beaches draw the crowds, but there’s plenty of other activities to enjoy throughout the area too.

Tivoli World theme park is a great place to take the kids during family holidays in the Costa del Sol, while Aqualand Torremolinos is ideal for cooling down from the Costa del Sol weather on particularly hot days.
For something a little more relaxing, a stroll around Marbella Old Town is just the ticket. With its narrow, winding cobbled streets, it’s a really beautiful place for an evening stroll among the lights. Elsewhere, the historic centre of Estepona is equally charming, while the streets of lesser-known Benalmadena are pretty and tranquil.
Malaga’s Picasso Museum is a must-visit for culture vultures during Costa del Sol holidays and the nearby 11th century fortification, Alcazaba, and Roman Theatre are great for history enthusiasts.
Further inland, Sierra de las Nieves National Park is a stunning location for those looking for active, outdoors adventures. With trails and hiking routes, it’s perfect for a bit of time away from the hustle and bustle and a chance to get back to nature.
And of course, beach holidays in the Costa del Sol are among Spain’s most spectacular. There are ample to choose from the whole way along this glorious stretch of coast, so whether you’d prefer somewhere with plenty of people, bars and restaurants, a beach ideal for relaxing quietly with a good book, or somewhere to keep the kids entertained, the Costa del Sol won’t disappoint.
