Muelle Uno is a large open-space leisure and recreation area which opened just over 2 years ago as part the ambitious remodelling of MalagaPort. With more than 50 shops and restaurants as well as cultural activities and events, it’s a required stop for anyone visiting Málaga.
Selwo Marina in Benalmádena has to be one of our favourite family attractions. Located just next to Paloma Park this is the only Dolphinarium in Andalucia and offers visitors a spectacular experience which includes dolphin exhibitions, sea lion show, exotic birds show and penguin feeding to name but a few.
As well as the regular programme and shows, Selwo Marina also offers special and unique experiences which allow you to see behind the scenes and interact with its friendly inhabitants. You can choose between the special VIP visit (includes pretty much everything), the dolphin encounter, swimming with sea lions and the VIP penguin visit.
The terrace of our Oasis Restaurant is an ideal spot to enjoy a delicious lunch and take a break from sunbathing and swimming in the pool.
For this summer, we’ve just introduced two fabulous offers which we’re hoping will be a great hit amongst our guests. The first is a new 3 course menu for just 12€ per person. You get to choose from a wide selection of dishes including 7 starters, 12 main courses and 4 desserts. The price includes IVA (VAT) but does not include drinks. Check out the yummy dishes you get to choose from below:
From the 18th to 20th July, the streets of the historic centre of Mijas will host the Luna Mora Festival, a unique event which will light up the picturesque town with 5000 candles!
This is the first time this famous festival – which has been held for the last 18 years in different towns throughout the province of Málaga – is being held in Mijas. Coinciding with the 28th edition of the ‘Villa de Mijas’ theatre festival, visitors to the town will be be treated to a spectacular cultural experience.
It’s probably one of the catchiest songs of the year and certainly one of the songs with most versions on Youtube! ‘Happy’ is the song that gets everyone in a good mood and dancing.
The staff at Sunset Beach Club are a happy bunch so we thought we’d put together our very own video-version of ‘Happy’. It didn’t take too much convincing to get team members onboard with the project and we soon had all the dancing stars who would feature in the video.
We had a professional videographer come in to do the filming (We’re good, but not that good) and dedicated a whole day to stop by each department and film the short clips which would later feature in the video.
Fancy trying a fun new water park where you’ll be able to jump, slide, dive and test your balance skills?
If you’ve been to the promenade in Marbella, Puerto Banus or Fuengirola, you may well have seen some bizarre looking inflatable structures floating about 100m off shore. Well these are actually new state of the art water parks where you and the family will have a whale of a time!
If you have kids and are looking for a fun day out, we recommend you take a trip up to the Donkey Sanctuary (Refugio del Burrito) in Fuente de Piedra (see map below).
A short 45 minute drive from the Coast, the Donkey Sanctuary is located in a traditional Spanish Cortijo and is home to over 70 rescued donkeys. The traditional buildings and charming olive groves provide a safe haven for donkeys and mules rescued from all over Europe.
Every summer we put together a list of the best live concerts on the Costa del Sol. We know that many of you enjoy attending live concerts whilst you are here on holiday and this guide will hopefully prove useful in identifying live performances you’d like to attend.
Last years line up of world famous artists visiting the Costa del Sol to perform their greatest hits was pretty impressive; however, this year looks to be even better. The following are just some of the big names performing during the months of July and August: Ricky Martin, The Beach Boys, Pet Shop Boys, Julio Iglesias, Chicago, Tom Jones, David Guetta… and the list goes on!
As was the case last summer, many of the top stars will be performing at the Starlite Festival, which takes place from the 23rd July to the 22nd August in Marbella’s breathtaking Nagueles quarry.
Another of the great venues this year is the Sohail Castle in Fuengirola which will see the likes of Chicago and Ian Anderson’s Jethro Tull pass through its gates.
Below is a list – in date order – of some of the best live concerts on the Costa del Sol this summer. We’ve included an indication of ticket prices but please bear in mind that these could change as availability is reduced.
If you are planning on visiting Benalmadena next week (from the 23rd June) there are a couple of events you won’t want to miss: The Night of San Juan and the San Juan Fair in Arroyo de la Miel.
The Night of San Juan is the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of the summer. All over Spain, people flock to the beaches to enjoy a magical night with bonfires, barbecues, fireworks and lots of food and drink!
Benalmadena is no exception with bonfires being lit all along its beaches. This year, there’s the added attraction of a full piro-musical show (fireworks, music and lasers) which takes place just down the road from the hotel, at the Bil-Bil Castle.
With less than a week to go until the ‘official’ start of the summer, we’re busy putting the final touches to our fun packed entertainment and activities programme which we’re sure you’ll love.
Those of you who have stayed with us before will already know that our daily activities programme is divided into 3 age groups: Kids (from 5 to 12 years), Teenagers (13 to 18 years) and Adults.
