The province of Malaga is famed for its beaches, its nature and its beautiful weather all year round. But beyond the sea and the sunshine, the Costa del Sol promises water sports for all tastes. In this post, we will list some of the best water sports that you can enjoy in the province of Malaga



The Costa del Sol is the perfect place to go kitesurfing.

If you have never kitesurfed before, not to worry: there are kitesurfing schools on many of the province’s beaches providing classes for all levels as well as equipment hire, which is a great option if you don’t have any with you.


Paddle boarding 

Another of the water sports that you won’t want to miss in the province of Malaga is paddle boarding, which is also known as SUP. Paddle boarding is a relaxing water sport that gives you the opportunity to explore the coast from a different perspective.

Diving and snorkelling

The Costa del Sol has a wealth of sea life living under the surface, making it the ideal place to enjoy activities like snorkelling and diving. There are countless diving schools offering courses for beginners as well as other excursions designed for more experienced divers. Some of the best places to go diving in the province of Malaga are the Maro – Cerro Gordo cliffs (in Nerja), Las Yucas beach (Benalmádena) and Las Arenas beach (Manilva), to name but a few.  



Kayaking is another popular water sport in the Costa del Sol. Like paddle boarding, the best thing about kayaking is that it enables you to explore the coast from a different perspective. You will discover caves and coves that you would not be able to access any other way. And you can also enjoy the sport away from the coast, in the reservoirs and lakes of the inland. What’s more, there are countless companies offering kayak hire: you can choose whether to do a guided tour or simply hire out a kayak and explore on your own.



The Costa del Sol is also the perfect place to do some sailing. Up and down the coastline, you will find a number of sailing schools offering courses for beginners and sailing regattas for sailors with more experience. Some of the most popular spots to enjoy the sport in the province of Malaga are Club Mediterráneo (Malaga), Benalmádena marina, Marbella marina and Estepona marina, and more.
