The Costa del Sol welcomes more than two million visitors a year. Tourists head to one of the many resorts located along this stretch of coastline from Gibraltar in the west to Nerja in the East. The most well known resorts lie west of Malaga beginning with Torremolinos, Benalmadena, and Fuengirola. Further along the coast lies Marbella and Puerto Banus which is the playground of the rich and famous.

With the Costa del Sol boasting average annual temperatures of 18 degrees Celsius and over 300 days of sunshine per year its no the wonder why so many visitors flock to this top European destination.

If you are a keen golfer there are around 70 golf courses to choose from. Golf is played all year round as well as a whole range of other activites such as sailing, scuba diving, horse riding and dolphin safaris. The list is endless.

Away from the coast there are numerous excursions to fill your days in the real Spain, with the cities of Ronda, Seville with its excellent shopping, Cordoba and Granada. All these cities are accessible by day tours and don’t forget to watch out for the sunflower fields with their blaze of colour. For the more adventurous you can take a trip across the Straits of Gibraltar to visit Tangier in Morocco.

The Mediterranean water is warm and safe making it a perfect family destination, and with over one hundred and sixty kilometres of coastline to choose from, the Costa del Sol is a must for beach lovers. The beaches are carefully maintained and regularly cleaned. Torremolinos has a newly refurbished promenade which is perfect for that evening stroll.

Nightlife in Costa del Sol has something for all tastes and pockets. Try the “jet set” lifestyle at Marbella or Puerto Banus. Torremolinos and Benalmadena have an abundance of family bars and restaurants on the sea front . For the serious clubbers head for the many themed bars, pubs and discos with live DJs and dancing until breakfast.

Shopping in Malaga is a must as it is a fascinating mix of the old and the new. An increase in tourism has resulted in more contemporary and chic shopping options including international chains and shopping malls. The coast is home to the souvenir strips whilst the weekly markets have inexpensive gifts including ceramics and leatherwear.

Winter in Costa del Sol brings golfers, sunseekers and those in search of Andalucian culture.
