Costa del Sol - the most interesting area of Spain in terms of excursions. It's very nice here: you can take pictures under every bush. However, the cool Atlantic Ocean makes this region practically unsuitable for the "pure relaxation" of the beach: the water temperature does not rise above + 21 ° C in the high season, it is + 19 ° C at the end of May. Hotels are more expensive here than in the other coastal regions of Spain but they are newer and better.

There are good conditions for windsurfing on the coast of Marbella - Estepona (Marbella - Estepona). Atalaya Park Hotel has a sports club on the beach, offering services to fans of the sport.
