Any holiday is always more fun with your pet by your side. The Costa del Sol is set to stun travellers with new holiday recommendations of places which can be shared with our furry friends, from restaurants, hotels and parks to special beaches for dogs.
Can my dog travel in a taxi?
In the city of Malaga the answer is yes. If they are small or medium sized, they can travel without using a carrier. We recommend that you always call in advance to book a car which allows our beloved pets to travel, so as to avoid surprises. The best idea is to specifically request a taxi which allows pets by calling +34 952 333 333, or by using the official app for Malaga taxis ‘Pide taxi’, or the recently-created ‘Taxi Guau’ which is especially for these services.
Sleeping in the same place as your pet won’t be a problem either on the Costa del Sol.
You can find various hotels which offer rooms set up for those wanting to share their holidays with their pet. In fact no fewer than 146 hotels in the area accept dogs, such as the Hotel Senator Malaga, Hotel Playabonita and Playabella Spa Gran Hotel. Just to offer a few examples.
And so that your enjoyment of your stay with your pet continues, the great choice of dog-friendly beaches on the Costa del Sol will make it more fun. In the summer of 2018 a new pet area opened in the district of Torrox, bringing the total number of this type of space to seven on the Costa del Sol. This new area in the Axarquía region, which joins those which already exist in Torre del Mar or between Rincón de la Victoria and the city of Malaga, occupies 300 metres of beach next to the Torrox lighthouse.
But a dog needs more than a beach. And so does its owner.
There is another bunch of fun, summer activities that you can enjoy with your furry friend. In Fuengirola, to be precise, you will find the dog park ‘Guau Guau’ which prides itself on being the largest in Andalusia. It is a space that has been designed for people to play with their dogs. With 5,400 square metres of space, it has training areas and doggy toilet zones.
Travel and enjoy your holidays with your pet by your side on the Costa del Sol. A destination which wants to be Pet Friendly. If you like going to the beach, doing sport in a great climate, Mediterranean cuisine and taking long evening walks with your dog, the Costa del Sol is the place for you!
