The best beaches and coves on the Costa del Sol

That Malaga has become one of the main tourist destinations in Spain is no coincidence. And here it is possible to find a cultural and leisure offer for all tastes, with white villages full of charm, a beautiful natural environment, a gastronomy that has nothing to envy that of other corners of the world, an important cultural heritage and interesting traditions. Of course, we cannot forget the Costa del Sol, which, bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, covers more than 150 kilometers of coastline.

On the coast of the province of Malaga you can find beaches for all tastes (bustling, quiet, lonely, virgin, full of services …), but they all have something in common: 325 days of sunshine and good weather a year. And its name is no coincidence! Today at Vuela Viajes we want you to get to know the Costa del Sol more deeply and, therefore, we are going to tell you about some of its best beaches. Of course, we want to apologize in advance for all those who have remained in the pipeline. Would you like to join us?
