Leisure Activities in Costa del Sol (Part 1)
The range of leisure activities in Costa Del Sol is large and varied. Whether you prefer to relax or would like to go on a little adventure – there is something for everyone here. Those seeking relaxation can best find it in one of the many spas, such as Spejo’s, or by going on a walk along the beautiful Costa Tropical, and marvel at the amazing landscape. The Torcal de Antequera cliff scenery, which looks as if it was artificially created, is also amazing. Fuengirol Zoo or the Sea Life Center in Benalmadena are the places to be for those who have an appreciation for flora and fauna close to their heart. The “dolphin safari” boat trips bring visitors closer to the animal life in the region and are also an impressive experience.
