Variety of family excursions
The best part is that it's all true. And there are plenty of celebrities, and hotels are expensive, and the beaches are wonderful. But that doesn't stop the Costa del Sol from being a place where you can relax with your child in a serene, happy environment.
One only has to keep in mind that during the peak season the coast of the province of Malaga is flooded with tourists and there are not many quiet corners left. For a holiday with an infant at this time, it is better to find a small resort without much entertainment but in a quiet place.
Little kids won't be bored in Sunny Beach either
There are plenty of attractions for children in Costa del Sol: water parks, animal parks, play centres. Many resorts have good museums, but most of them are concentrated in Málaga.
Holidays on the Costa del Sol can be both lazy and busy
You can simply enjoy the comfort of a five-star hotel or on the beach, or you can travel all over Andalusia to see Moorish palaces, bullfighting and flamenco.
When is the best time to visit the Costa del Sol?
The weather on the Andalusian coast can seem like a gift for those who can't wait to sunbathe on the beach until May and aren't ready to say goodbye to summer in September.
The beach season in the Costa del Sol runs from the beginning of May to the end of October and is perfect for both rain and shade. And yet the choice of when to go to the Costa del Sol is not an easy one.
On the one hand, it's undesirable to holiday with a child on this hot beach in July and August, when temperatures are off the charts. On the other hand, it's not until July that the water in the sea gets relatively warm, and so coming here in early summer is unprofitable.
You can get around this weather discrepancy. Firstly, in May and June, that is, the opening of the season in Costa del Sol, water parks start working. Secondly, many hotels have swimming pools.
The perfect balance between water and air temperature is struck in September. The heat sinks and the sea stays warm.
Seville and Granada tours: сheap car hire in Costa del Sol for a great family holiday
Spring, early summer or autumn is also the best time to visit Seville and Granada. That's because it's always hotter off the coast: in Seville, for instance, it can get as hot as +30ºC on the coast but 40ºC in Seville.
The calendar of events shows that the resorts of the Costa del Sol are not just the hottest months. On the first day of May, the town of Mijas hosts the Sardinada, the opening day of the sardine season. On 23 June, bonfires and celebrations are held all along the coast to mark St. Juan's Day.
Carnival festivities are held throughout Andalusia during Feria del Rosario in October. This is especially celebrated in Fuengirola.
