The Olympiades are just about to start, and at Meridional Events, we believe this is a great opportunity to talk about sports and corporate events at Costa del Sol. What activities relate sports to corporate events?
Andalusia is worldwide known for its culture, gastronomy, beautiful beaches and pleasant weather but we offer more than that. Sports are part of our DNA, and we have plenty of options on offer. Given we have the Mediterranean sea, mountains and a long-lasting tradition of practising sports and being outdoors, there is no question Costa del Sol is getting popular when it comes to practise sports. If you combine this with great weather and stunning natural landscapes, coming to the Costa del Sol to host a sports event, a pre-season or include some sporty activities as part of your corporate event or incentive trip has never been easier: from holding your breath at the astonishing Caminito del Rey, to enjoy the views at the Great Malaga Path (Gran Senda Litoral), or discovering our rail trails, cycle paths and the Vias Verdes, and many more to discover. Let Meridional Events help you with that!
A few weeks ago, we spoke about the Costa del Sol new attractions in 2021 on offer, and today we will round up the information about what to do if you want to practise some physical activities. Regular exercise brings joy, keeps you healthy and promotes team spirit, so it is an ideal ally for your team building activities.
Sports activities in the Costa del Sol
We have to start with a classic. It is the king of sports in Spain and most European countries (check our post dedicated to the Eurocup 2020)
The Marbella Council, together with the Marbella Football Center, have hosted the pre-Olympic match week to prepare the National teams for the Olympic games. Marbella was chosen due to the quality of its hotels, state-of-the-art sports halls and facilities, and its extraordinary weather.
Costa del Sol is promoting sports tourism with their new Sports Destination motto. Thanks to their well-designed infrastructure and outstanding connections, Costa del Sol is the perfect spot to practise sports and organise any sport-related event. Whether it is a pre-season, the presentation of the latest team members or the celebration of a well-deserved prize, Meridional Events can assist in preparing any of them.
Given how privileged are we to have so many kilometres of coast, there is no surprise that sailing has plenty of followers. This year the Costa del Sol -as part of their efforts to promote their region and support sports tourism, has sponsored Estrella del Viento (Star of Wind). This is their first attempt to win the Spanish Cup and the King’s Cup as Malaga has never taken part before.
For many, an arguable sport, for all, an enjoyable adventure. Costa del Sol is becoming a hotspot for fishing tourism. If you have ever wondered what is the journey from the sea to your favourite restaurant table is, now you can live it yourself (there are also alternative fishing methods!). You may even enjoy the visit of some friends searching for your leftovers.
We could not finish this article without mentioning Golf. Costa del Sol is also known as Costa del Golf for a good reason. The amount and quality of golf courses make the Costa del Sol a paradise for all golf lovers. If you would like to organise your golf experience, contact Meridional Events, your local DMC experts in Costa del Sol.
