SENDA AZUL, THE COSTA DEL SOL'S MOST SEAFARING VERSION
A project by Turismo Costa del Sol and Diputación de Malaga, it offers hundreds of possibilities for getting to know and experiencing the sea.
The Costa del Sol is a perfect location, imbued with magic and adventure that offers locals and visitors infinite possibilities for fun and entertainment. Senda Azul is a catalogue of water and underwater experiences, in the main marine locations, with the most history, as well as the various harbours and marinas along the coastline.
This extensive range of activities was created to be enjoyed on your own or with others: family, friends, a partner, with kids, whether you seek relaxation, action or sports.
Kayaking, paddle surf, surf, snorkelling, windsurfing, scuba diving or fishing are just some of the experiences offered by sendaazul.es. There are also leisure activities such as floating parks, summer camps, marine gymkhanas, gastronomic tours or boating trips.
