The last day of September has been dubbed ‘Sea Day’ in Malaga with the focus well and truly on holidaymakers.

On September 30, Turismo Costa del Sol and the hotel association Aehcos inked a deal, promising 600 spots for eager participants. Malaga’s marine offerings, from tourism to environmental benefits, remain underutilised. It’s not just about sunbathing and swimming, there are many other activities, known as nautical tourism, that also promote jobs and prosperity.

Unveiling The Blue Path

Turismo Costa del Sol champions the Blue Path initiative. Their primary goal? Raise awareness. To mark this, Sea Day on September 30 will be a treat, especially for tourists. From Nerja to Manilva, free sea-related activities await.

Those who sign up – and there are 600 spots – can enjoy a boat and whale-watching trip in Benalmadena. Fuengirola offers a taste of paddle surfing. Estepona invites you to dive, while Malaga city introduces sailing.

A Day For Tourists

Last year, Malaga’s locals were the focus. But 2023 is all about the tourists. To ensure Malaga holidaymakers know, Costa del Sol Tourism’s president, Francisco Salado, and Aehcos’s president, Jose Luque, have collaborated. Their mission? Let hotels inform their guests.

‘Last year 1,000 people participated and this time we have programmed 15 different activities and experiences, so we want to contribute to tourist loyalty and enhance the nautical offer,’ shared Salado.

Luque added, ‘We firmly support the project’ and emphasised that ‘tourists are no longer only looking for a destination but one that has complementary activities.’
