The Andalucia region
COSTA DEL SOL
Washed by the Mediterranean Sea, the Costa del Sol extends along more than 150 kilometres of coastline in the province of Malaga, in the southern Iberian Peninsula. Its name, the “Coast of the Sun”, is not due to mere chance: with over 325 sunny days a year and a benevolent climate, this is a paradisiacal place with beaches to suit all tastes.
Starting at the Maro cliffs, and extending through Nerja, with its Balcón de Europa viewing point and cave; delightful Torrox; stately Vélez-Málaga; attractive Rincón de la Victoria; the magnificent capital; the famed Torremolinos; Benalmádena, Fuengirola, Mijas, Marbella, Estepona, Manilva and peaceful Casares, the Costa del Sol is a dream location for a holiday where the possibilities are endless.
Each beach has its own charms. Some are livelier, others are quieter and more solitary; some are absolutely untouched and others have the most modern services. You will surely find your own personal paradise on the Costa del Sol.
From the western coast of Cadiz to Nerja, on the border with the province of Granada, there is an area where tourism is highly developed. The waters are calm, warm and transparent, and the scenery is beautiful and varied, as many beaches are set between the mountains and the sea.
A large percentage of the total accommodation available in Andalusia is concentrated on the western Costa del Sol. There are many tourist services of all types, including berths for sporting boats at 13 marinas and yacht clubs, as well as golf courses, all types of sports facilities, casinos and a myriad of leisure and entertainment options.
Alhaurin El Grande
The municipal AREA stretches along the strip of coast which runs from the mouth of the River Guadalhorce to Benalmadena and, inland, as far as the slopes of the Sierra de Mijas.
Though it appears to have been founded in 1489, Torremolinos is a typical product of the tourist boom of the 1960"s, which turned this small fishing village into a large, densely-populated town devoted entirely to sun and sand tourism, boasting large beaches and all manner of related facilities; it is also home to a Congress Centre which has played host to important international conventions on numerous occasions.
Some traces of its past are still visible in the Bajondillo and La Carihuela districts, though the Pimentel Tower is the town's most noteworthy monument.
Completely devoted to tourism, Benalmadena is one of the most important resorts on the western Costa del Sol, offering a variety of options: firstly, the village itself, located in the upper part of the municipality, featuring traditional architecture which reflects its origins and affording beautiful panoramic views; further down stands a district of great importance, Arroyo de la Miel, where most of the population live, with its wealth of tourist facilities, including an international pleasure park; and, finally, Benalmadena-Costa, where most of the facilities for sun and sand tourism are concentrated: hotels, a casino, golf courses, a pleasure harbour etc.
