Costa del Sol

Located in the south of Andalusia, the Costa del Sol is a paradise of light and sunshine 325 days a year, where the best cuisine, leisure, beaches, sea, culture and some marvellous inland landscapes combine to create a fantastic holiday destination, as complete as it is surprising. Although the sun and beach continue to be essential parts of the Costa del Sol, there are also many other things such as health and wellness, golf, water sports and eco-tourism which mean the Costa del Sol has become a place to be enjoyed all year round.

The whole Costa del Sol area is ideal for short breaks, given that most UK regional airports have regular flights to Málaga. But there is so much more to the Costa del Sol, and you can easily spend much longer here.

Something Different

Walk the King's Pathway Not for vertigo-sufferers or the faint-hearted, El Caminito del Rey is a wooden boardwalk attached to the sheer walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, north-west of Málaga. Almost 8km long, it takes 2-3 hours to complete
Learn to Dance the Flamenco Many venues along the Costa del Sol host flamenco shows, but if you feel like truly getting into the swing of it, you can pick up this sensual, classically Spanish dance yourself at lessons in Málaga or elsewhere in the region.
