Still haven’t decided on your next holiday destination? How about a motorbike tour of the Costa del Sol? Without a doubt, it is a fantastic option to enjoy one of the most beautiful coastlines of our country, full of beautiful and well-equipped beaches (just take a look at our article “The best beaches on the Costa del Sol”), modern hotel facilities and villages that preserve the charm of Andalusia.

Today on this website we want to give you some of the most important tips for touring the Costa del Sol by motorbike. In addition, we are going to give you some safety tips for driving on the beach and in the heat. Would you like to join us?

Keys for touring the Costa del Sol on a motorbike

If you don’t have a motorbike or prefer to leave yours at home, a good option for touring the Costa del Sol is to rent a motorbike. One of the best places to do this is Larios Rental (http://www.larioscarhire.com/es/), a reference we found in a post on the blog “Diarios de un fotógrafo de viajes” (http://www.diariosdeunfotografodeviajes.com/2012/02/costa-del-sol-en-moto.htm). On the other hand, we would also like to recommend that you do the motorbike route along the Costa del Sol accompanied, as any mishaps you may have along the way will be easier to handle with someone at your side, especially if it’s another biker.

It is also important that you always travel with a charged phone and a charger for your motorbike. And if you are travelling in a group, don’t hesitate to buy an intercom to talk to your companions. Of course, you should equip your bike (screens, lights, protectors…) and yourself (gloves, helmet, boots…), no matter how hot it is. It is also important to travel light. In fact, to tour the Costa del Sol you will need little more than a swimming costume. In addition, you should always carry a full tank of petrol.

Must-see places

Beyond Malaga, a city that you should make the most of, on your route along the Costa del Sol you should not forget to visit beautiful spots such as Marbella, Estepona, Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Mijas.

Safety tips in beach areas and heat

If you have decided to go on a motorbike route along the Costa del Sol, you should bear in mind some safety tips when driving in hot, beachy areas. It is important that you wear the right equipment, without forgetting your feet, which must be protected. As for gloves, you can opt for summer leather gloves. On the other hand, it is important that you keep an eye on the temperature of the bike, as well as travelling at cooler times. In addition, it is essential that you carry wipes to clean your helmet and mirrors of mosquitoes and other insects. You should also balance your panniers and stay hydrated along the way, as well as wearing sunscreen. Of course, you’ll need to have good insurance to cover yourself for what might happen. In this post about motorbike travel safety, we found good references about the Mutua Madrileña motorbike insurance (https://www.mutua.es/seguros-moto/).
