Beach front fun

The Pedregalejo district of Málaga city is very popular with students. Beach clubs are the epicentres of nightlife in coastal areas, especially the upmarket Marbella.
One of the most appealing and unusual plans for enjoying a night by the sea are the moragas, typical nocturnal soirées on the beach with music and food. However, don't forget to ask the local town hall for permission if you want to hold one.
There are lots of events on the Costa del Sol that take place at night. You can find concerts, plays, festivals and numerous alternative ideas for fun after sunset.
