There is nothing more symbolic of a Spanish summer than the smell of sardines being slowly grilled over an open wood fire on the beach. Nothing else even comes close. The combination of heat, the sea air, the smoke from the olive wood fire and the salted sardine being slowly grilled to perfection. A smell that is omnipresent on most beaches in and around the Costa del Sol.
Costa del Sol is known for its year-round sun.
But as this week is proving, not even the Costa del Sol is safe from downpours all the time.
We’ve rounded up some of the best easy-reach, rainy day spots to prove there is much more to do here than just hit the beach.
If there ever needed to be an excuse to visit a bodega, a rainy day is surely it.
