The Costa del Sol region
It's not hard to understand why Costa del Sol is one of Europe's top holiday destinations since it boasts over 300 days of sunshine per year with average annual temperatures of 18ºC and 150km of coastline.
The eastern Costa del Sol is the the 54 kilometre stretch of coast to the east of Malaga city (the capital of Málaga province). Though highly developed from a property point of view, it is not anything like the property development on the western Costa del Sol.
East of Malaga, there are cliffs of up to 200 meters high where the Sierra Almijara joins the sea. Nerja is the most important urban centre on this end of the coast and is surrounded by tourist pueblos. This town also claims one of this area's main tourist attractions - the Nerja Caves – a spectacular find that is open to the public and which hosts an annual music and dance festival within its famous caverns. At the foot of Nerja town a winding footpath joins several coves and there are some nice beaches to be found in this area. The beaches of eastern Costa del Sol include Calahonda and Calas Ocidentales in Nerja. Playa Calahonda is very popular among tourists owing to its picture postcard setting. Before you head down to the beach, the view from Balcon de Europa is a must-see. Stick to the well-maintained but winding footpath to explore the coves to the east.
Western Costa del Sol is the 100 kilometre coastline that begins at Malaga city and stretches to the border of Cadiz province. This part of the coast is highly urbanized both in property and infrastructure, attracting a large number of Spain's international tourism. Communications centre around Malaga International Airport and the N340 central coast highway. In the middle of the Costa, the much improved district road from San Pedro de Alcantara to the historic town of Ronda is the most important inland connection.
Ronda is on a towering plateau nestled in the mountains 48 kilometres inland from Marbella. It is one of the prettiest and most historic towns of Costa del Sol and is a popular daytrip for tourists seeking history and culture in one of its many lovely cafes and restaurants. The town is also famous for El Tajo, the plunging river gorge that divides the medieval from the 18th-century parts of the town. The spectacular gorge has a stone bridge, Puente Nuevo that was once a prison and is today a dramatic viewpoint for visitors. The walkway El Parador along the river gorge offers a terrific view of the surrounding landscape. Ronda is also recognized for its bullring - the oldest and largest in Spain. In addition to a museum, the bullring is open to visitors (so long as there are no bull fights ongoing!).
Only 10 minutes from the playground of the rich and famous – Puerto Banus, Gazules del Sol’s Mediterranean village style luxury homes are also just moments away from the picturesque mountain village of Benahavis, known as the dining room of Costa del Sol.
Located on the southern face of the Serrania de Ronda mountain range at a medium altitude of 150m, the views from Benahavis are spectacular. Benahavis was founded by the Romans, occupied by the Arabs and finally conquered by the Spanish Catholic Kings and draws upon its history and rich cultural influences which can be found in the local cuisine, architecture, art and music. Its Moorish heritage is emphasised by the existence nearby of the ruined 11th Century castle of Montemayor.
For the beach bum, there are too many beaches to list here with the closest being the 5km long, blue flag beach of San Pedro Alcantara. Others that are nearby include Playa del Cristo, Playa Nueva Andalucia, Mistral Beach, Heaven Beach, Puro Beach, Plaza Beach, and Ocean Club.
For the golf enthusiast, there are 20 golf courses within a 15 minute drive which include Monte Mayor Golf Club, Atalaya Golf & Country Club, Club de Golf Guadalmina, El Paraiso Golf Club, Marbella Club Golf Resort, Flamingos Golf Club.
A sample of other attractions not to be missed are Funny Beach, Fuengirola Zoo, Selwo Safari Park, Mijas, the aquaparks in Torremolinos and Tivoli World Amusement Park. Gibraltar, Malaga, Ronda and Mijas are all within an easy hour’s drive.
