The Costa del Sol has no barriers. The majority of monuments, museums, restaurants, streets and beaches have been adapted for people with disabilities, so that anyone can enjoy their visit to Málaga province without facing accessibility problems.
Málaga province's important monumental legacy has been adapted for people with disabilities. Such emblematic monuments as the Gibralfaro Castle, the Málaga Alcazaba or the Cathedral are accessible to all. You will not encounter any obstacles to visiting monuments in other parts of the province either. Two examples are the Nerja Caves and the Ronda Bullring.
You will have no problems visiting and exploring the Costa del Sol´s museums as practically all of them are accessible. The Picasso Museum, the Carmen Thyssen Museum, the Pompidou Centre and the Centre for Contemporary Art, all in Málaga, are accessible for people with disabilities. There are also accessible museums in other parts of the province, such as the Antequera City Museum.
Accessible beaches on the Costa del Sol
The majority of the Costa del Sol's beaches are equipped and adapted to the needs of those with limited mobility.

All of the ones mentioned above have ramps, amphibious chairs, support staff and everything else you may need.
Accessible villages: Frigiliana
Frigiliana is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. In addition, as the result of a project developed by Sign Language Interpretation students, this town is now even more accessible. There are no barriers to stop blind, deaf and deaf-blind people from enjoying Frigiliana.
Ronda is another town that has made a great effort in recent years in terms of accessibility. Ronda old town is classified as an Asset of Cultural Interest. The Puente Viejo bridge, the Bullfighting Museum and the Bodega Doña Felisa are just some of the accessible places you can visit in Ronda.
