The Costa del Sol is one of Britain's fave Spanish holiday destinations. Including stunning beach resorts such as Marbella and Benalmadena, and all-inclusive resorts like Holiday Village, it's no wonder it entertains over 10 million tourists a year. There are four main towns along the coastline: Marbella, Benalmadena, Torremolinos and Nerja. Then there's Malaga city, of course. In this video we take you through our top 22 things to do across all these locations and give you some handy tips to know along the way :) We'll be adding a Costa del Sol playlist to the channel pretty soon but, in the meantime, why not check out our playlists on the Canaries and the Balaeric Islands for some more Spainspiration... ;) Tenerife - https://goo.gl/ay19sr Mallorca - https://goo.gl/JG1WZs Here's the link to the Pablo Picasso Museum in Malaga: http://www.museopicassomalaga.org/en Don’t forget to… SUBSCRIBE ► https://goo.gl/mKhPKt Get in touch on Facebook ► https://www.facebook.com/holidayextras Follow our travels on Twitter ► https://www.twitter.com/holidayextras Get some sneak-previews on Instagram ► https://instagram.com/holidayextras/ Quench your wanderlust on Pinterest ►https://www.pinterest.com/holidayextras/ And explore our Blog ► https://goo.gl/EgQpsp ………………………… PoweredBy http://www.holidayextras.co.uk/?agent=WJ414 ………………………… Transcript: Welcome to the Costa del Sol. 22 Things To Do in Malaga and the Costa del Sol. Almost all beaches along the Golden Mile are Blue Flag, with lots of fun activities, shallow waves and plenty of sand. They’re family-friendly, and have disabled access and there’s almost always food of one sort or another close by. The Marina at Puerto Banus isn’t far from the beach. It may not be the biggest of places of places along the Costa del Sol but it’s certainly a shop-aholic’s haven. While Benalmadena Marina is a bit more ‘every man’. The vibe here is more family-focused and relaxed and the beach here is huge! If you’re staying around Marbs, you should definitely check out the Ocean Club. TOWIE fans, this is a must! This is the Mariposario Butterfly Park. 150 species of butterfly flutter and float in the air. They’ve even adopted a pair of iguanas, a tortoise and a wallaby! Balcon de Europa is just as relaxing as rewarding. The funny thing is, everyone thinks the King actually founded the place… He didn’t, it was a well-known local secret; he just came up with the name. Frigiliana is a labyrinth of cobbled, winding streets. And what makes it more traditional are these gorgeous white-washed buildings. One of the best things about this place is the views. You’ll find Orange Square in Marbella Old Town, a medieval courtyard of lively and colourful restaurants, cafes and shops. A day trip to Malaga should definitely be on the cards. Pablo Picasso was born right here in Malaga in 1881 and became a highly influential artist in painting, sculpture and even print-making, to develop Cubist and Surrealist movements, among others. And this museum is devoted to his works. Malaga Cathedral dates back to the 1500s. The original design for the cathedral had it with two towers, although now it only has the one. In fact, that second tower was never built because they ran out of money during the building process, thus there’s only one. The locals around here affectionately refer to this building as ‘The Lady with One Arm’ or, La Manquita. Alcazaba Fort is said to be the city’s most important landmark because of its strategic hilltop position, overlooking the ocean, to watch out for any invaders. The Nerja Caves are a subterranean labyrinth of stalactites and stalagmites that date back millions of years. Above ground, a beautiful way to see the countryside and meet with the locals is on a John Keo guided walking tour. Bring your lunch, your camera and an ear for local stories. This really is a memorable way to spend a day of your holiday and learn about the natural landscape you’re holidaying in. The cable car in Benalmadena gives you some of the most beautiful views in the Costa del Sol, at nearly 800m above sea-level. For more guides, reviews, tips and tricks, visit our channel.
