The Costa del Sol has 161 kilometers of coastline with 12 marinas that have a wide range of active tourism and water sports: swimming, kayaking, surfing, scuba diving … That is why the areas are perfectly marked and regulated for their practice. And there are many companies that program these activities, have specialized monitors and material for rent if you don’t have your own.
In addition, the region is ideal for practicing outdoor sports, since the climate is mild throughout the year, with about 2,901 hours of sunshine per year. Sun and beach, a great combination, right?
But the variety of water sports to practice on the Costa del Sol is not limited only to the beach. The interior of the province of Malaga has extraordinary natural corners where you can practice sports such as kayaking, canoeing or paddle surfing in its rivers, swamps and reservoirs.
If you want to make a first contact with an adventure sport and you are looking for a gentle activity, we recommend canyoning in the Guadalmedina river, in Marbella, an environment of great beauty.
If your level is more expert, you can move further into the province to practice canyoning and other water sports in a place as peculiar as the Sima del Diablo in Júzcar, in the Genal Valley.
If you are looking to avoid crowds, enjoy the outdoors and do water sports at any time of the year, don’t even think about it, come to the Costa del Sol, you are going to enjoy them!
