The Costa del Sol refers to Spain’s Southern Coast, and is the name given to the sun kissed stretch of Mediterranean Coast leading down from Granada along the Andalusian Coast all the way to Gibraltar.
Starting with the cliffs of Maro, through Nerja, the balcony of Europe, the coast road will take you on past Malaga, through bustling Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Mijas, exclusive Marbella and Puerto Banus, Estepona and Manilava right to the tranquillity of Casares. The Costa del Sol is full of little pieces of paradise and between all these towns and villages and you’re sure to find a little piece of your own.
Known as the Costa del Golf, there are over 70 golf courses including some of the world’s finest including Valederrama, home to the ‘97 Ryder cup and this year’s Volvo Masters. Stepped in history, it’s also home to hundreds of museums, some of the best restaurants in the country, dozens of luxury hotels and, especially in Marbella, some of the best and most exclusive shopping on the planet. There are few places in the world where you can ski in the morning and swim in the sea in the afternoon, and the Costa del Sol is one of them
