Rental apartments and villas are most popular for families, as it’s so convenient to have a home from home where you can prepare food for the kids and let them have a nap whilst you relax. Families are spoilt for choice when it comes to things to do on the Costa del Sol, plus there are more things being created all the time.

One of the newest things to launch is a concept called Happy Days Costa del Sol on the San Pedro Boulevard which includes a year-round outdoor ice skating rink, mini golf, American food from a cool food truck and even live sports on big screens. San Pedro Boulevard is a great place to visit in the early evening with a bike, roller skates or skate board as you can go from playground to playground and stop for drinks and snacks in some lovely cafes along the way. Perfect family fun and not surprisingly our San Pedro holiday villas are gaining in popularity!

Another new attraction in the pipeline is a new water park beside Hotel Don Miguel, behind Marbella’s main bus station. According to plans it should be open for summer 2017 and will offer 62,000sqm of water fun including 8 zones and 28 attractions. This will be a great new addition for the Costa del Sol to reduce travel to the existing parks and lessen crowds. But if you don’t want to wait for 2017, here are three great options which are open until the end of this month and then reopen end of May or beginning of June 2016.

Aqualand in Torremolinos is the largest waterpark in the Malaga province, featuring Europe’s highest water slide, 19 water slides for adults and 15 suitable for children. Torremolinos is the original tourist resort on the Costa del Sol, very convenient as it’s located so near to the airport and the city of Malaga, with lots to see and do.

Parque Acuático Mijas, FuengirolaThere are five water slides, a lovely little kids’ area with loads of small slides for the under 7s, mini-golf, rock-climbing wall, Jacuzzis, picnic areas and gardens and they often arrange fun activities for adults such as aqua aerobics. There are discounts for booking online and also for going after 2.30. Fuengirola is an excellent choice for a family holiday, at the end of the train line from Malaga and the airport, with loads to do including a zoo, parks and playgrounds, wide sandy beaches, excellent shopping and lots of restaurants and we have many holiday rentals in Fuengirola to choose from.

Bahia Park, Algeciras (near Gibraltar) was named the best water park in Andalucia by travellers on TripAdvisor and you can see why, with 8 rides, activity pool, children’s area and the largest Jacuzzi in Andalucia. There’s also kids entertainment in the afternoons and you can either enjoy a picnic or try one of the restaurants. This closes earlier in September than the other 2 so you may have to wait until next June to try it out. Algeciras is quite an industrial town and not one we’d recommend for a base for a holiday, but if you’d like to be near there and Gibraltar, then Sotogrande is a good choice, especially if you like water sports and golf and large villas.  Check out our Sotogrande Area Guide to find out more
