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!).
Los Arqueros is an exclusive and luxurious development comprising a superb 18 hole golf course (designed by Severiano Ballesteros) and country club created for you to enjoy an exceptional holiday. Los Arqueros is located in the heart of the Costa del Sol, just a few kilometres from Marbella and the internationally famous Puerto Banús and only a few minutes drive from the delightful village of Benahavis, justifiably famous for its restauarants.
Los Arqueros is a beautiful estate built by Taylor Woodrow and the architecture makes the most of the natural features and exceptional views down to the sea.
La Torre is a development of fine, luxury apartments and enjoys 4 swimming pools and subtropical gardens. Built on the edge of the golf course there are wonderful uninterrupted views of the surrounding mountains and countryside.
Just off the Ronda Road, 5 minutes from San Pedro and Benahvais, Los Arqueros Golf and Country Club is peaceful yet close to all that this stylish part of The Costa del Sol has to offer.
San Pedro has a wide range of shops, bars and excellent restaurants plus a choice of good supermarkets.
Puerto Banus is about 10 minutes away and offers a huge selection of shops, bars, restaurants and nightlife plus the famous Saturday Market at the Bullring. A little further on and you find Marbella, the Costa del Sol's finest resort.
There are many golf clubs nearby as are the beaches at San Pedro with many water sports to enjoy. In the area you will find horse riding, tennis, 4x4 off-roading and canoeing.
A car is essential to enjoy your holiday and to explore the beautiful province of Andalucía to the full.
Benahavis is a Spanish mountain village situated between Marbella, Estepona, and Ronda, where it is located seven kilometers from the coast. Renowned for its restaurants, it is often called the dining room of the Costa del Sol. Benahavis holds nine of the 60 golf courses in the Costa del Sol; this number is expected to increase, again, to fifteen in the next decade.
Located on the southern face of La Serrania de Ronda mountain range, Benahavis is one of the most mountainous village on the western Costa del Sol. Benahavis is situated near the beaches of the Costa del Sol and spectacular mountains of the Serrania de Ronda. Its terrain is traversed by the Rivers Guadalmina, Guadaiza, and Guadalmanza. Regions of great natural and historic interest are to be found within its boundaries, such as El Cerro del Duque, Daidin, and the Montemayor Castle.
The town itself is surrounded by natural parkland, and, as such, retains a modicum of its secluded, cosy feel. La Zagaleta, a highly exclusive mansion club which contributes to Benahavis' status as the richest municipality per capita in Andalucía, lies within its boundaries, and overlooks the village.
During the late 1990s, the Junta de Andalucia constructed a dam on the site of an old marble quarry, meaning that for much of the year, the once ever-flowing Rio Guadalmina is merely a dried-up river bed.
At the end of the 11th century, Benahavis was founded by Arabs. Closely related with Costa del Sol's Arabic past, and particularly with Marbella, the district which it belonged to until it was granted the so-called "Carta Puebla" by Philip II in 1572. Montemayor Castle, built prior to the Construction of Benahavis, playes a very important role in the battles between the various Arab kings in Andalusia, because of its strategic position. It was disputed for many years by the military factions of the epoch. Its prominent location overlooking up to a hundred kilometres of seaboard, and even the African coast, was extremely useful at a time when piracy and invasion were commonplace. The town takes its name from Havis, who reigned in Montemayor Castle. To be precise, Benahavis is basically Arabic (Ben al Havis) and means "son of Havis".
The castle's strategic location drew the attention of the Catholic Monarchs, intent on conquering the last Moorish kingdoms in the south of the Iberian Peninsula. Isabel and Ferdinand's forces had already laid siege to the Nazarite kingdom of Granada, but they decided first to occupy the nearby province of Malaga. Soon on the 11th of June, 1485, Benahavis, together with the localities of Daidin, Montemayor Castle, Cortes Fortress, Oxen, Arboto, Almachor, Tramores and Calalui Fort (the Castle of Light), in the Bermeja Mountains, all within the district of Marbella, were handed over to King Ferdinand the Catholic, by Mohammed Abuneza after the signing of the capitulation.
The Catholic King entrusted their custody to Don Pedro Villandrado, Count of Ribadeo, the first Christian mayor of Benahavis. From that moment on, a dispute arose between Benahavís and Marbella which lasted three and half centuries, until Benahavís achieved the status of a completely independent community. As for Montemayor Castle, it is worth noting that as well as its impressive location, it had underground passageways connecting it with the coast, large enough to take a man on horseback, through which the Arabs were able to move soldiers, food and weapons. Indeed in the 1960s a lorry broke through the roof of one of these in the town's main square.
San Pedro de Alcántara
San Pedro de Alcántara (St. Peter of Alcántara) (pop: approx 26,500) lies on the main Costa del Sol coastal road the N340/A7 as well as the new toll motorway the AP7, 10 km west of Marbella in Andalucia, Southern Spain. It is easily accessed from either Málaga or Cádiz and via the C339 from Sevilla and Ronda. The nearest airports of Málaga and Gibraltar are both within an hours drive. It is situated in the fertile plain of the same name, Vega de San Pedro Alcántara, a broad stretch of coastal lowland surrounded in a semicircle by rugged hills. On the East the Sierra Blanca of Marbella, dominated by its highest peak Pico del Astonar (1.270 m.) better known locally as "La Concha" (The Shell) because of its resemblance to a fluted sea shell when viewed from the west. To the North, there is the Sierra del Real or El Real del Duque, the Sierra de las Nieves and those of Tolox, on the West of the town the Monte Mayor and, finally, closing the mountain line the Sierra Bermeja.
As you enter San Pedro, through the entrance arch from the Cádiz direction, you find what is probably the most typical Spanish town left on the Costa del Sol, kept very clean with a central shopping area, quiet parks and squares and beautiful gardens. Turn right off the main road to the Nueva Alcántara area and you reach the very long, newly constructed promenade and the long, wide beaches, where there are many new developments taking shape.
The culture of San Pedro reflects the greater regional culture of southern Spain. However, because of its location on a fertile plain, the local cuisine is rich and features greater use of abundant local crops.
San Pedro has the last summer fair (feria) in Andalucia which takes place in the second week in October. The fair lasts four days. On the penultimate day of the fair, a bull fight is held in celebration of Iberian culture.
Traditionally, young debutante women who attend the bull fight wear pink blouses. If a bullfighter succeeds in quickly slaughtering a bull, the young women toss monogrammed handkerchiefs into the ring in the hopes that the bullfighter will call on them afterwards.
Unlike most modern Spanish bullfights where much of the meat from slaughtered bulls is donated to charity, the carcasses of bulls which are slain during this fight are cremated in a bonfire at the end of the day. This ritual mirrors the pagan ceremonies performed by ancient Iberians.
