Your Guide to Costa del Sol

Current Local Weather

Costa del Sol has it all, from the vast sweeping, golden, sandy beaches up to the majestic mountain range in an area, covering over 150km of the Malaga province. You will find that it is a veritable treasure trove of delights for the tourist.  With approximately 340 days of beautiful sunshine a year, it is no wonder the region has the name The Costa del Sol ("Sun Coast" or, more literally, "Coast of the Sun")

The Costa del Sol is situated between two lesser known costas: Costa de la Luz and Costa Tropical. Both areas are becoming increasingly popular with tourists, as new destinations and are easily accessible with budget airlines located in the area. 

Formerly made up of only a series of small, quiet fishing settlements, the region has been tastefully transformed into one of the foremost tourist destinations in Europe. Historically, the majority of the population lived in the quaint fishing villages, and in the"white" villages a little distance inland, in the mountains running down to the coast. Today, Costa del Sol is home to such great cities as La Cala de Mijas, Nerja, Marbella, Malaga, Calahonda, Torremolinos, Mijas Costa, and Benalmadena.

The area was discovered and developed to meet the demands of international tourism in the 1950s, and has since been a popular destination for foreign tourists. It is not only for its beaches, but also for its local culture. There is something for everyone in the region, with trendy towns such as Marbella, providing the Costa del Sol with its reputation for being a playground for its super-rich and famous visitors." For something a little quieter you have a vast array of sleepy villages to choose from, yet you will still only be 45 minutes from the nearest coast. If Golf is your thing, then 'Costa del Golf' is perfect for you, with over 56 golf courses, many golf resorts and clubs, and even Disc Golf courses!
