Unlock the sure fire magic of the Costa del Sol

-->

“The spectacular beaches of Costa del Sol will make your visit worth it! Try caving or canyoning, see the Cueva del Tesoro cave, visit the marinas or play golf along the famous courses. Don’t forget the endless shops with all kinds of shopping, or the Mediterranean gastronomy, with its typical dishes.” ~Turespaña

 

This is an area of diverse beauty, where mountains, sea and culture collide. Consequently also offering both leisure and grandeur, making it a holiday-makers paradise. In addition to these remarkable qualities, I was also in awe of the genuine spirit portrayed…

Best highlights in the Costa del Sol:

1. Estepona

“Estepona is one of the few coastal towns that has succeeded in maintaining both its old and modern charm. You can count on numerous street cafes, and tapas bars still serving traditional Spanish delicacies. And the steep, cobbled, narrow streets seem more suited to horses than cars. Too, also you’ll find unusual shops and bodegas in Estepona”. ~ Andalucia Tourism

2. Fuengirola

“This is a town of sunshine and beaches with fantastic sports and cultural facilities on offer. Similarly there are also magnificent shopping opportunities with a wide variety of first line establishments. Moreover with regards to gastronomy, there are endless restaurants where you can enjoy typical Andalucian food.” ~ Visit Fuengirola

3. Nerja

“Nerja boasts 16 kilometres of coastline with powdery sand and sparkling clear water. No doubt all major water sports are available, including: water skiing, scuba diving and sailing. It is flanked by a dramatic mountain range, Sierra Almijara, to the east. Nerja’s most spectacular attraction is undoubtedly its fascinating caves, located just 3 kilometres from the centre of town. They include archaeological treasures such as paintings which are over 20,000 years old and other pre-historic remains.” ~ Andalucia Tourism

4. Marbella

“Marbella is, without a doubt, one of the region’s major tourist centres, thanks to the high quality of the facilities and services it provides. Puerto Banús, one of the main focal points for tourists in the town houses an exclusive leisure area inside the excellent facilities of its marina.” ~ Turespaña

5. Mijas Pueblo

“One of the jewels along this coast is this beautiful little village Mijas, which nestles comfortably in the mountainside. Incidentally when you wander through the narrow cobbled streets of this Andalucian village you can somehow retain much of its traditional way of life. In fact the locals display an unabashed passion for all things festive and an unmistakable relaxed ‘mañana’ outlook.” ~ Andalucia Tourism

6. Malaga

“Of course it is easy to understand why Malaga City is dubbed the capital of the Costa del Sol. With its quirky museums, delightful pedestrianised centre, innovative restaurants and stylish hotels, many feature trendy rooftop terraces with a bar, pool and stunning views.” ~ Andalucia Tourism

7. Torremolinos

“Presently this town reflects its heritage with several of the original fresh fish bars.  Torremolinos has also evolved as an attractive and appealing resort. Ultimately noted for its clean sandy beaches, wide choice of hotels and restaurants with an unparalleled variety of entertainment, activities and nightlife.” ~ Andalucia Tourism

8. Cueva del Tesoro

“La Cueva del Tesoro is the only marina visited cave in Europe. It showcases cave paintings of animals, pottery and objects belonging to the Neolithic flint lithic industry among a Solustrense Arrowhead. But it is also internationally known for its ancient oral tradition which reflects the existence of a hidden treasure Ali Ibn Tasufin Almoravid Emperor of the twelfth century.” ~ Andalucia Tourism
