10 Reasons to discover the Costa del Sol.
1- The beaches.
Why visit Costa del Sol? We enjoy 150 km of coastline and a great variety of beaches.
Some with turquoise waters and vegetation all the way to the shore, like Cabopino, near Marbella.
In Maro, Nerja you will find almost virgin beaches and cliffs with wild life.
Near Cádiz, white sand and in the Axarquía, dark sand.
The vast majority have a blue flag every year.
And since we are the main international tourist destination since the 1950s.
Here we have the best hotels, restaurants and services.
Also the most luxurious marinas and the most exclusive urbanizations.
For example, Puerto Banús and Puerto de la Duquesa.
In addition, many beaches are suitable for surfing and diving.
2- The weather.
We enjoy 325 days of sunshine a year and an average annual temperature of 19 degrees.
An example of this is Torrox with the best climate in Europe.
We recommend visiting Antequera.
Its origin dates back to the Bronze Age, there you can visit various dolmens.
Like the Romeral and Menga.
It also enjoys a rich medieval heritage, with more than 30 temples.
Near Antequera is the Caminito del Rey and the Gaitanes gorge.
It is a path hanging from the wall more than 100 meters high.
Only suitable for the brave and with prior reservation.
In Nerja you can discover a beautiful underground landscape:
With huge galleries, extravagant formations and extraordinary Neolithic paintings.
In Nerja we also have some vertigo cliffs, those of Maro-Cerro Gordo.
They are the most beautiful in Andalusia and have great wildlife wealth.
4-The white towns.
Named for their neatly whitewashed low houses.
Beautiful and picturesque, adorned with flower pots.
Among them, we must mention the most relevant examples:
Frigiliana: one of the most charming towns in Spain.
Close to Nerja with stunning views of the mountains and the sea.
With landscaped Arab walls.
With steep, narrow cobbled streets and lovely whitewashed houses.
All different, all beautiful, with brightly painted doors and windows.
An unforgettable visit, a trip back in time to Arab Spain.
We recommend going in the afternoon to watch the sunset and end up having dinner at El Mirador.
Mijas: the most picturesque white town in Andalusia.
With his taxi donkeys and his geraniums in the windows.
Many postcard corners and beautiful views from the park and the hermitage.
Ronda: the most beautiful town in the world.
Many famous artists and writers have fallen in love with her, just like us.
It is high and overlooks a beautiful valley, green and leafy.
From the Mirador de la Aldehuela you will take some beautiful panoramic photos.
But the most impressive are the views from the Puente Nuevo, from the 18th century.
Because Ronda is divided in two by the Guadalevín river.
That runs through a 100m deep gorge.
Don’t forget to visit the bullring, the oldest in Spain.
Nearby it has excellent restaurants where you can enjoy the excellent gastronomy of the place.
There are also out-of-the-ordinary tapas bars in Ronda.
Check them out at our telecabbie destinations.
5-Málaga, the capital.
Malaga is beautiful, elegant and cheerful.
The Center: along Calle Larios, near the port, we begin our walk.
There are the chic shops, the best pastry shops and it is the meeting place for the people of Malaga
The architecture of the buildings is light and bright, with tall windows and rounded corners.
The facades, painted in light colors, reflect the beautiful light of the city.
We highlight the Roman theater, the Alcazaba, the Cathedral & the Picasso Museum.
They are not to be missed.
Close to all of them is the Pimpi, a bar-restaurant with the best views of the city.
6- The Golf.
The Costa del Sol is the Costa del Golf, with its more than 70 courses.
Without a doubt, Nueva Andalucía is a paradise for lovers of this sport.
And also for all those who wish to enjoy tranquility, privacy and nature.
In this Golf Valley, there are 5 Golf Courses:
Aloha Golf & La Dama de Noche Golf.
On the Costa del Sol you will enjoy a varied and delicious gastronomy.
Always the best products from the sea and the garden.
Our peculiarities are the following: we are in front of the Alboran Sea.
Therefore, in our restaurants they roast and fry the best sardines and anchovies.
Our microclimate is subtropical, especially in the Axarquía, near the Granada coast.
As a result we have huge and tasty mangoes, avocados and custard apples.
Which are included in the preparation of our dishes, providing freshness and flavor.
We have the Muscat grape and the best sweet wine in the world.
In fact, our brandy from Ojén was immortalized by Picasso.
In Malaga and Marbella, we have three Michelin star restaurants.
Take a look at them.
8- The culture.
Cradle and melting pot of cultures, where the Arab footprint is still very visible.
We have a multitude of old town centers declared a historic-artistic complex.
Like the one in Malaga , Ronda , Velez Malaga (near Torre Del Mar) and Frigiliana:
Above all, we recommend a visit to the Alcazaba and the ascent to the Gibraltaro castle in Malaga

Related to its history and customs.
Moragas on the beach in summer, where people gather to grill sardines, sing and laugh.
The nights of white, when the neighbors on the nights of the full moon go to the beach dressed in white.

The whole town comes to enjoy a day of brotherhood …
Remembering when this dish made of wheat semolina was the daily food in the field.
Flamenco festivals, in many inland towns, such as Torrox, Benalmádena and Marbella.
10- His people.
The mottos of the city of Malaga are: “Very Beneficial” and “Very Hospitable”.
This is how they pray in the plenary hall of the Malaga city hall.
Represented on two large canvases that show the disembarkation of the wounded from the war in Africa …
And the rescue of the Gneisenau frigate.
Both actions earned the city the titles that appear on its shield.
And that’s how Malagueños and Malagueñas are still, good, open and hospitable.
They will make you feel at home instantly.
In fact, the Costa del Sol has been a very important tourist destination since the 1950s.
The world jet set has been installed in Marbella since the 1960s.
And thousands of British, German and Nordic citizens have chosen us as their new home.
In fact, in towns like Frigiliana & Mijas Pueblo, almost half of the population is foreigners.
