The Costa del Sol stretches just over 150 kilometres of Málaga province and is one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations. The mild climate is the root attraction that makes it possible to enjoy the beaches and a wide variety of outdoor activities throughout the year.
An average of 320 days of sunshine per year.
Western Costa del Sol
The Costa del Sol starts from Malaga city and stretches westwards, all the way to the border of Cádiz province. This part of the coast is highly developed in terms of both property and infrastructure, attracting an essential percentage of Spain’s international tourism. Communications revolve around Malaga International Airport (8 km west of the city) and the N340 backbone coast highway. In the middle of the Costa del Sol, the greatly improved district road from San Pedro de Alcantara inland to the historic town of Ronda is the most important inland connection.
The Golden Mile
Arguably the most prestigious address in the whole of mainland Spain.
A select stretch of coastline from where the Marbella tourism phenomenon first emanated. The exquisite Marbella Club Hotel and the fine Puente Romano Hotel are the stars of the Marbella high-level tourism. Soft sandy beaches on one side, an imposing backdrop of mountains on the other and just a stone’s throw from the vibrant marina of Puerto Banús, this is the place to be.
