THE Costa del Sol gears up its beaches for what promises to be a historic summer. Málaga, extending its peak beach season to eight months this year, leads the charge. Other towns are also getting ready to tackle the upcoming increase in activity.

March Rains and Storms: A Mixed Blessing

While March rains alleviated much of the region’s water deficit compared to last year, they also brought storms that damaged nearly half of the province’s beaches. Since April, various authorities have been working tirelessly to repair these beaches, ensuring a well-prepared summer with expectations of record-breaking visitor numbers.

Over €3.2 Million Invested in Coastal Enhancements
