Things to Do in the Costa del Sol: The Costa del Sol is an amazing place to visit, attracting holidaymakers from all over the world year after year.
Each part of the Costa del Sol has awesome things to see and do and we take a look at 10 of the best whilst you enjoy this stunning part of Spain.
10. Casco Antiguo: Step back in time to the cobbled streets and ancient buildings of the Casco antiguo de Málaga (Málaga´s Old Quarter).
Although more expensive to enjoy, the area is filled with beautiful restaurants and shops.
9. Alcazaba: From the Arabic meaning ‘citadel’, this 11th century Moorish castle overlooks the city of Malaga and the largest of its kind on the Costa Del Sol.
8. Centro de Arte Flamenco: For a history or dancing lesson, this is the place.
Learn about the rich and evolving tradition of dance – and then try it for yourself.
7. Bioparc Fuengirola: This zoo and plant sanctuary follows a new model of zoology, providing a natural environment unlike any other.
6. Nerja: Stretching for almost five kilometres (over three miles), the caves are among Spain’s biggest tourist attractions.
Concerts are even held here, with the natural formations providing amazing acoustics.
5. Donkey Sanctuary: This voluntary sanctuary, set amongst the beautiful hills of the Costa Del Sol, cares for the rare and beautiful Andaluz Donkeys.
An attraction that brings to mind Don Quixote’s Spain.
One for the poets, rather than the tourists.
4. Museo Carmen Thyssen: With over 1600 paintings in its collection, it forms one third of the golden triangle of Spanish galleries.
3. The Museum of Crystal and Glass: Situated in a restored palace, the Museo del Vidrio y Cristal de Málaga, is home to ancient Egyptian and Roman artefacts, as well as modern glassmaking masters.
2. Malaga Cathedral: A perfect example of a Renaissance-era church, the unfinished tower hints at the grandeur the church could have achieved if construction hadn’t halted in the 17th century.
1. La Carihuela: Originally a fishing village, this neighbourhood has developed its own distinct flavour and nuances.
Everything the Spanish coastline should be and the most beautiful setting on the SunCoast.
