Visiting the Costa del Sol in summer

Málaga and its 161km coastline afford all kinds of unique sensations in the summer. Go boat-sailing, explore heavenly coves or watch the sun go down in the dunes. After sunset, experience the magic of the Costa del Sol in a beach bar or a beach club by the Mediterranean Sea.

Málaga boasts spectacular coastal landscapes, like the cliffs of Maro-Cerro Gordo, in Nerja. Unforgettable experiences are waiting for you here: kayaking, diving and enjoying the amazing seabed, exploring unspoilt coves

And you would be very close to another natural wonder: the Cave of Nerja. In July, it plays host to the International Dance and Music Festival. It is a must-attend summer event, as are Cómpeta’s Wine Night in August or Almáchar’s Ajoblanco Festival in September.

Adventures at sea

Málaga offers a wide range of experiences to wake up your senses. You can go kitesurfing in Torremolinos, sail across Fuengirola bay on a jet ski or hire a sailboat in Benalmádena. There are as many as 11 marinas on the Costa del Sol where you will find everything you need for your nautical adventure.

Whether you are coming by sea or by land, Puerto Banús is a must in the summer. After admiring the luxury yachts and going window-shopping, you can go tapas in Marbella. You will be delighted by the flavours of traditional cuisine as you discover the fascinating nooks and crannies of the old town.

In coastal Marbella, the Artola dunes are worth a visit – especially the lookout tower of Los Ladrones. Cabopino, very popular with naturists, is the best beach in the area to enjoy the Mediterranean in a free environment.

Summer calendar

Lots of events are held in the summer – an ideal supplement to your sun and sand holiday. In September, Guaro plays host to the Festival of the Moorish Moon, while Carratraca gets ready for the Charm of Al-Andalus Festival. Both villages recreate the atmosphere of a fairy tale, in the light of thousands of candles.

If you are in for traditional Andalusian festivals, come in August to Antequera or Málaga. During the Málaga Fair, you can go to the beach, spend a nice day at the port and visit as many as 30 different museums. In September, you can be a witness to a unique bullfighting show in Ronda: the Goyesque Bullfight, where matadors wear eighteenth-century garments.
