2. Water sports and cruises
Many holidaymakers find it impossible to resist the call of the Mediterranean and need to get out and paddle, windsurf and dive to their hearts’ content.
Fortunately there’s a water sports centre next to the beach at every resort in the Costa del Sol.
They’ll give you tuition and kit you out with all the gear for anything from jet skiing to parasailing.
There are also tourist ports dotted along the coast, the launch pad for white-knuckle powerboat rides or unforgettable whale and dolphin-spotting cruises.
Divers aren’t neglected either, with PADI-licensed centres in Torremolinos and Marbella.
