Family holidays: destination, Costa del Sol

 Tags: Leisure

One of the priorities when choosing a destination for your family holiday is to ensure the enjoyment and satisfaction of the youngest members of the household. If you’re thinking of travelling to the Costa del Sol with children this summer, we’ll tell you everything you need to consider. The goal: to share quality family time.


Choose a hotel with activities for children

Opting for a hotel with entertainment services, swimming pool and recreational activities is essential when travelling with children. Another option is to look for a hotel with an “all inclusive” offer, a very convenient choice. You’ll find many of them on the Costa del Sol. Another important factor is the quality of the rooms, that is, they should have rooms which are big enough to ensure everyone has space.


Visit the leisure parks

A guaranteed way to have a great time is to go to a theme park. You’ll find the greatest concentration of them in the western Costa del Sol, in towns like Torremolinos, Estepona or Benalmadena. Benalmadena is home to most of the leisure parks: the Tivoli World amusement park, the Benalmadena Sea Life Aquarium and the Selwo Marina dolphinarium  among them. Nearby is the Fuengirola Bioparc, a new concept in zoos, where you will discover the most impressive animals up close. For refreshing excitement, you shouldn’t miss Aqualand Torremolinos, the Mijas water park or Aquavelis in Torre del Mar, Vélez-Málaga.


Charming places for a family holiday

The famous Spanish series Verano Azul put Nerja on the map of the most charming beach towns in Spain. In the series, a group of children enjoyed the most entertaining adventures in this Axarquía town. Since then, Nerja has become the preferred destination for family holidays. Very close to Nerja is the resort of Torre del Mar, in Vélez-Málaga, and another of the Costa del Sol’s water parks: Aquavelis.

Malaga’s inland villages are also a fantastic choice if you want to enjoy a different type of family holiday. During the summer, most of them celebrate their traditional fairs and festivals, many of them considered to be Festivals of Tourist Interest.
