Enjoy a Family Holiday in Costa del Sol this Half Term 2023

Taking place at the end of the month, between Monday the 23rd and Friday the 27th of October, the UK half-term holidays hold a special significance for families. Not only do they signal that we are just 10 weeks away from Christmas, but they also offer a unique opportunity to enjoy some quality time together, away from the demands of everyday life. Half-term holidays are the perfect opportunity to take a break from routine and enjoy a family getaway, allowing both parents and children the chance to unwind, explore new destinations and create lasting memories.

Finding the ideal destination for the 2023 half-term holiday is essential for a dream getaway. So what can we do to choose the right location?. The best family-friendly places to go in half-term should provide a wide range of activities for different ages, a great climate and a relaxing atmosphere to ensure the perfect balance between fun for the little ones and tranquillity for the grown-ups.

What’s more, with over 300 days of sunshine a year, you can make the most of the Mediterranean climate while exploring the unique blend of relaxation and adventure that Costa del Sol has to offer.


Things to do in Half-term in Costa del Sol


There are plenty of exciting options for children and teenagers to enjoy in the vibrant Costa del Sol. From speeding through the Andalusian countryside on one of Buggy Offroad Adventure‘s excursions in Mijas Costa, to a treetop adventure park with more than 103 challenges at Aventura Amazonia in Marbella. There, both children and adults can challenge themselves with an adrenaline-filled experience, including the longest zip line in Andalusia. For a delightful treat, families can head to Mayan Monkey Mijas, a charming chocolate factory in Mijas town in which to craft your very own chocolate bars.

For families that would like to reach new heights, Altitude Trampoline Park in Malaga’s Nostrum shopping centre offers a wide variety of activities, from diving into a foam pit to testing your skills on the extreme dodgeball court, guaranteeing a lively and energetic experience for children of all ages. For a day filled with culture, the Museo Interactivo de la Música MIMA, in the centre of Malaga, is unlike any other museum. With over 1,000 pieces from diverse cultures spanning thousands of years, it’s an interactive journey through the world of music that encourages visitors to touch the artworks and promises to engage and entertain the whole family.
