5 original plans to enjoy the Costa del Sol to the maximum


It is no secret that the Costa del Sol is an inexhaustible source of opportunities, of places not to be missed and original plans that have to be lived and enjoyed, yes or yes, when you have the chance to come. The offer of leisure, culture, sport and restaurants is too extensive to fit in one single entry of this humble blog.

But we don't want to stop proposing some of the best plans to make your experience in this land unforgettable. Not everyone who is here is here, but everyone who is here is here. Attention!


1.- An experience full of beauty and adrenaline in the Caminito del Rey

original plans costa del sol

When the repairs were completed and the Caminito del Rey (King Alfonso XIII had inaugurated it for the first time in 1921), the province of Malaga recovered one of its most representative enclaves for its beauty, its history and the great adrenaline charge that this walk entails.

Located in the heart of the province, this is a hanging pedestrian bridge attached to the stone, made of wood, almost 4 kilometers long, which runs through the canyons of the Gaitanes Gorge. At some points, it is more than 100 meters high over the river, which makes this experience worth living.

You can travel by public transport from several shuttles, both by bus and by train. There are also private transport services. You can book your visit every day except Mondays. Please note that the winter timetable is different from the summer timetable. Without a doubt, this is one of the most original plans to make on the Costa del Sol. Check your diary and find a place for it!


2.- Spend a day at the beach, music and the best gastronomy in Florida Mijas Beach

If we tell you beach, swimming pool, music and superior gastronomy, with family or friends, all in the same location, you will know that we are referring to Florida Mijas Beach. Another "brother" of the Florida family (after the legendary Florida Retiro in Madrid and Palau Alameda in Valencia). Because among the best original plans we could not miss to offer you the best mix of leisure and gastronomy on the Costa del Sol. And all with the Florida seal.

The beautiful Cala de Mijas and the sea at our feet, 330 days of sunshine a year and 3000 square meters divided into several spaces.

In the area Beach we give you the opportunity to have a fantastic day sun and sea. 30 hammocks by the water of Cala de Mijas and our waiter service at your disposal from 11 am.

Beach and pool area

A Michelin Star that puts at your disposal the best from the garden, meat, fish and rice that will not leave you indifferent. You can enjoy all this in the spacious indoor lounge or on the outdoor terrace, the choice is yours!

The ground floor is Origin PoolThis is a 360º space that mixes the pool area with a more informal restaurant area, although with dishes and bites that are just as exquisite as Palmira. You can spend a fantastic day at the pool by booking your single or double hammock or your special 8-person bed.

3.- Visit the Starlite Festival, an annual music event

Once again, the Starlite Music Festival is held in the inland part of Marbella. Days of concerts with some of the most famous figures of music such as David Bisbal, Aitana, Morat, Pablo López, Diego el Cigala, Taburete or Marta Sánchez, who, since 2012, have been offering us this festival. Which is your favourite day?

The Nagüeles quarry, where it is located, can be reached by your own vehicle, taxi or VTC or by a bus line from Marbella.


4.- Spend a cultural afternoon visiting the Picasso Museum and the centre of Málaga

There is no doubt that Malaga is one of the most culturally rich cities in the country. Therefore, one of the original plans we propose, because not everything will be beach and sun, is to visit two of the richest and most interesting museums in the world today.

Our most universal Malagueño in history, the painter Pablo Picasso left an extensive and unparalleled pictorial heritage that can be enjoyed in Picasso MuseumLocated in the Buenavista Palace, in the heart of Malaga.

In July and August it is open every day from 11am to 7pm. The entrance fee is 9 Euros, although there are reduced rates for some groups, such as those over 65 and students under 26. Even the entrance is free for people with disabilities or unemployed. And on Sundays, during the last two hours of opening, entrance is free for everyone.

A perfect day for you to take advantage and soak up the whole centre of Malaga, a beautiful city like few others, with the Marqués de Larios street as its backbone.


5.- Live a basketball match of Unicaja de Málaga

If you are on the Costa del Sol during the basketball season, you can experience one of the best basketball shows that can be seen in Europe. Unicaja de Málaga, one of the best teams on the continent, participates in the Endesa League and in European competition. He disputes his home games in the Martin Carpena Pavilion. Malaga is one of the cities with more tradition of basketball in Spain.

Your birthday celebration on the Costa del Sol now has a location: Mijas

It consists of a lounge and a very large terrace that on summer nights seems that it is not the cove of Mijas and the sea that you have right in front of you, but a beautiful setting.

Lots of sunshine, music, excellent food and good vibes all day long, from Thursday to Sunday, from 7 pm with live music shows: flamenco or Spanish and international pop versions.

Besides, you can keep the party going until the morning. You like this option, don't you? Moving!
