Costa del Sol is at the heart of Spanish culture. Think bullfighting, fiestas, opera and tapas, this beautiful region epitomises the charm that Spain has to offer. The southernmost point of Europe, Costa del Sol is justly famous for its glorious weather, averaging 320 days of sun each year. Its 160km of coastline offers plentiful beautiful, sandy beaches, ranging from fancy resorts to quiet coves, whilst inland you’ll find whitewashed mountain villages and craggy ravines.
Visit upmarket Marbella, with its yachts, sandy beaches and backdrop of the Sierra Blanca mountains, or the dynamic Malaga which in recent years has undergone a cultural transformation; perhaps you will be lured by the Andalusian appeal and ritzy marina of Benalmadena, or pretty, hill-top Mijas with its views over the sea to North Africa. Whether you are after waterparks, world-class golf courses, or simply relaxing on the beach or by your villa pool, Costa del Sol offers you a little slice of Mediterranean heaven.
