Snorkelling off the Costa Tropical...just a few weeks ago. This is a part of the coast we often visit and sits right on the border between Malaga and Granada.

The area is protected and known as Los Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo. It covers 1814 hectares of cliffs, beaches and coves. Fishing is illegal here and the water quality is fantastic, exceptionally clean and teeming with fish. With no need to swim out more than a few feet, the snorkelling is great and ideal for children.

Here's an old article I wrote about one of the beaches there.....many moons ago. There's also a groovy, Gopro video of me snorkelling with a friend.

Walking up the Rio Chillar

One of the Costa del Sol’s classic family walks. Walking up the Rio (river) Chillar in Nerja is a summer tradition in most households.

It can get crowded on weekends throughout the summer months, but is well worth the effort. The higher you go, the more spectacular the countryside. River pools, waterfalls and nature galore.

Exploring the Nerja caves

One of the Costa del Sol’s most visited attractions and by anyone’s standards a natural wonder. Home to the world’s largest stalagmite and some truly awe-inspiring inner chambers. A visit should be high on any family’s to-do list.

Birdwatching at the Guadalhorce Natural Park

The little known natural park is situated right in the centre of Malaga. A place of peace and tranquility, its very hard to believe you are only 15 minutes from Malaga’s International airport.

An important ornithological spot, it's a bird watchers paradise, sitting on one of the main migration routes from Africa to Europe. There are also some great mountain biking trails and hiking routes.

Visiting the Village of Alhama de Granada

Alhama de Granada is a place that has inspired poets and travellers alike throughout the centuries. The romantic traveller Teofilo Gautier summed up its existence as ‘hanging on an enormous rock or peak like an eagle's nest.’ The name Alhama is derived from the Arabic - al-hammam - meaning the thermal baths.

The gorge offers some great hiking routes, picnic spots, places for swimming in the summer months and, of course, the thermal baths.

Cycling the Via Verde de la Sierra

This is always a fun day out for the whole family. 

The Via Verde de la Sierra runs from the village of Olvera to Puerto Serrano. It was voted as the best Greenway in Europe in 2009 and came in second place for 'Excellence' in 2013. You cycle through tunnels of varying length, across bridges and viaducts, through lush valleys, along river banks, through meadows and fields and past some of Andalucia's most carefully protected natural monuments, including the home of Europe’s largest colony of nesting griffon vultures.
