Overview of Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol literally translates as ‘coast of the sun’. If you’re looking to catch some rays, then there’s no better place to be, as this patch of coastline receives over 300 days of sunshine every year. It’s no wonder why holidays to the Costa del Sol are so popular. The 160-kilometre stretch of coast offers something for travellers of all ages, with large resorts such as Torremolinos and hotels such as the Marconfort Griego allowing visitors to sample beautiful cuisine, world-class beaches and an endless list of activities.

Things to do in Costa del Sol

At the Marconfort Griego Hotel, you’re right in the town centre, which means that shops, cafes and nightlife are right on your doorstep. Torremolinos offers plenty to see and do. Once a small fishing village, the resort has been transformed and now includes a range of activities, from water parks to botanical gardens. Six beaches run along the promenade, and each is flanked by shops, cafes and restaurants. On the water, a number of companies specialise in water sports, such as jet skis and paragliding. The area is also known for its nightlife. The heart of the town has Flamenco dancing and tapas, but nearby La Nogalera hosts everything from traditional British pubs to night-long parties.

Resort Summary

Six stunning beaches – Bajondillo, Los Alamos, La Carihuela, Montemar, Playamar and El Saltillo – run along a picturesque promenade overflowing with shops and cafes. If you love the sun but not the sand, there are also some beautiful grassy patches where you can spread out your towel and lounge under a palm tree. The main stretch in Torremolinos is La Carihuela, a Blue Flag beach with sunbeds, beach bars and jet skis for hire.
