5 best things to do with kids on Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol beach

Before you had children, deciding where you wanted to go on holiday was a cinch compared to what you had to consider once you had young ones involved.

Ideally, you want to go to a place where you can relax, while the kids have plenty to keep them occupied and also a place that lets you do interesting and exciting things together as a family.

Of all the holiday destinations available in Southern Europe, we could not come up with a better place than Spain’s Costa del Sol.

First off they have been catering to families for over six decades and have more than enough things to see and do to keep both the young and not so young happy.

In the list below, we have come up with what we think are our best five things to see and do while holidaying with children on the Costa del Sol.

The entire area around Maro Beach is a marine nature reserve where fishing is prohibited, making it one of the best places in the Mediterranean to go snorkelling.

Most of the coastline here is inaccessible by foot, which means you will have unspoilt hidden coves all to yourself. There are also plenty of caves to explore and a 15-metres tall waterfall cascading into the sea.

Other nearby attractions include one of Spain’s most visited sites, the Nerja Caves and a spectacular hike along the Chillar River.

Thankfully, the transfer from Malaga airport to Nerja is no longer a child’s nightmare journey. Since the motorway replaced the old coast road, the trip to Nerja is now only 60 minutes and the holiday starts even sooner.

Aqualand Water Park in Torremolinos

No summer holiday with the kids would be complete without a visit to a water park, and while there are plenty to choose from, we think that Aqualand in Torremolinos is the best of the bunch.

The park has an incredible 1,440 square metre swimming pool complete with a wave maker and the tallest water slide on the Costa del Sol in the aptly named 22-meter-high Kamikaze.

New in 2018 is a crazy 15-metre half-pipe for two people that will have you lining…
