If you are still wondering why to visit the Costa del Sol in winter, here we give you at least 10 reasons.

And what for here is winter for many other places is the climate of its autumn or spring. Come check out the good weather for yourself!
Visit the charming white villages
Generally in the summer we focus on enjoying the pool and the beach, but we forget to do other types of tourism. A good reason to come during the winter months is to visit the white villages of the Costa del Sol.
You could make a trip to Mijas Pueblo, which is very close to Torremolinos and Benalmádena. It extends throughout the Sierra de Mijas to the coast. You will fall in love with its streets and balconies decorated with colorful flowers and plants.
A walk along the beach of Torremolinos
While in other parts of Spain the snow arrives or it is impossible to be outside, on the Costa del Sol we can afford to walk on the beach. One of the ones we like the most is Torremolinos where you have 7 kilometers divided by its four main beaches. The best known are Playa de La Carihuela and Bajondillo.
Get to know Puerto Marina
Puerto Marina is the port of the city of Benalmádena. Whether by day or by night, you will love seeing this space where Arab-style architecture is combined with that of Gaudí. That is why it has twice been considered the “Best Marina in the World”. Around it you have a wide variety of gastronomic offer or you can even take a boat ride.
Gastronomy for all tastes
If there is something that stands out throughout the Costa del Sol, it is gastronomy. Whether you are in Torremolinos, Benalmádena or Málaga capital, you can enjoy some of the specialties such as espeto or fried fish.
We also have the best of international cuisine with Italian, Japanese or Indian restaurants, among others.
Make purchases in the best stores in the world
A few kilometers from Torremolinos is Puerto Banús, where you will find the best luxury shops in the world. Recognized throughout the world, for the ostentation of its port and everything that surrounds it, it is worth visiting this area that is part of the "Golden Mile" of Marbella.
Discover the Museums of Malaga
In recent years, Malaga has truly become a City of Museums since there are 40 in total that you can find. One of the best known in the world is the Picasso Museum. Did you know that Malaga has the first headquarters of the Center Pompidou?
Enjoy art and culture
Art and culture are part of the idiosyncrasy of the people of Malaga. From seeing a play at the Echegaray Theater or at Antonio Banderas' new Soho Theater, to enjoying activities, exhibitions and events. Every day you will have something to do in Malaga, Torremolinos or Benalmádena. We recommend you visit the cultural agenda of each City Council.
If you travel with children, you will find various fun activities for them. You could visit Selwo Marina or Parque de la Paloma in Benalmádena. You also have the Butterfly Garden, or visit the Botanical Garden- Molino del Inca in Torremolinos. And if you go to Malaga capital, do not miss the Museum of Imagination and Optical Illusions.
The good thing about the Costa del Sol is that you have many places nearby that you can visit on day trips. For example you could go to Ronda, Gibraltar or visit other nearby places like Frigiliana, Marbella or Estepona. Aren't you afraid of heights? Then do not miss the "Caminito del Rey", an aerial path on the walls of the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes. You will be speechless!
