The Costa del Sol region
The Costa del Sol stretches along 150km of Málaga province and is one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations, with its wide sweeps of golden sand. The area's mild climate is the main attraction – visitors and residents alike can enjoy the beaches, as well as alfresco dining plus a wide variety of outdoor activities, all year round.
The area is famous for its hundreds of beaches to be enjoyed along this coast, from quiet, hidden coves to trendy stretches of sand with fashionable beach clubs populated by celebrities and beautiful people from all over the world.
One of the most popular pastimes on the Costa is golf – there are over 50 golf courses in the area, with stunning mountain and clifftop locations, offering spectacular views over the area's varied landscapes, and down to the sea.
Less well-known, but definitely worth a visit, are the many stunning national parks around Malaga province, often located just a short, easy drive inland. You can go hiking, caving, wild swimming, four-wheel-driving, horse-riding and countess other adventurous activities. For a less strenuous day out, the villages of the Axarquia region are some of the most picturesque in all of Spain.
If night-time is your time, then you'll find a huge selection of bars and clubs along the coast, especially around Marbella and Puerto Banus, ranging from the fun and easygoing, to the chic and sophisticated.
The Costa de Sol can be divided into two sections, with Malaga city at its centre. The eastern Costa del Sol is much shorter, stretching from the provincial capital as far as Nerja, where it meets the Costa Tropical of Granada province.
The western Costa de Sol is the section of coast which curves round southwards towards Gibraltar, and includes all the major resorts such as Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benalmadena, plus of course, the ritzy celeb-magnet of Marbella. This section has a very international feel, with visitors and residents from all over the world.
But if you're coming to the coast on holiday, don't miss Malaga city, which has reinvented itself in recent years as a cultural and gastronomic centre. It has an unparalleled offering of museums, including the Picasso Museum, a buzzing contemporary arts scene, and top-class tapas bars and restaurants.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT AREAS OF THE COSTA DEL SOL?
The eastern part of the Costa del Sol is less developed; it starts at the border with Granada province, whose own coastal area is called the Costa Tropical.
This part stretches for 54km to the east of Malaga city, and is less developed than the section on the other side of the provincial capital. From Malaga eastwards there are cliffs up to 200m high where the Sierra Almijara joins the sea. Nerja is the most important town in this part of the coast, and while it has grown substantially, providing much of the eastern Costa del Sol's holiday accommodation, the town has still managed to retain plenty of character.
This town also has one of the area's major attractions - the Nerja Caves, a spectacular site well worth visiting to see the spectacular caverns – here you can go to the annual international music and dance festival with its unusual location – inside the caves! Below Nerja town, a winding footpath joins several coves, and there are some good beaches to be found in this area.
The western part of the coast has a different vibe to it – it's very lively in terms of nightlife and beach clubs, and has a buzzing atmosphere all year round, with many expat residents choosing to make their home here.
This section begins at Malaga city and stretches westward all the way to the border of Cádiz province. This part of the coast is highly developed in terms of both property and infrastructure, with excellent transport and many investment opportunities. This part of the Costa del Sol attracts a large proportion of Spain's international holiday visitors, both beachgoers and also cruise passengers, who arrive in increasing numbers at Malaga port.
In addition to the Costa del Sol in Malaga province, a short section of this coast is, in fact, located in Cadiz province – the southernmost part, near Gibraltar. This stretch includes the exclusive port and residential developments of Sotogrande, where Spain's most expensive real estate is located, as well as Alcaidesa which has set strict limits on any further development of its town.
One of the best places on the Costa del Sol for nightlife is Benalmadena, with so many different types of bars, clubs, restaurants that there is always something to suit all tastes. From the latest Clubland sounds with top D.J.'s to swish sophistication and the live jazz, or salsa dancing till dawn, the Marina Port has it all.
At the crossroads before going down to the Port, is the Plaza Solymar,, where there are more pubs and clubs for the night owls such as Beer Kellar, Molly Malones Irish Bar, Disco Kiu Nightclub, Dutch Inn, Jules Disco, Liquid Bar & Coyotes Gentlemens Bar.
Covering an area of almost 30Km², and with an official 30,000 inhabitants, Benalmadena is just 19 kilometers from Malaga Airport. It's easy to reach from both Malaga capital and International Airport by road, train or bus and its privileged position looking out onto the Mediterranean Sea, it is little wonder that it has grown so rapidly in size over the last 20 years and become so popular - especially with the British. It is always lively, but the busiest time of year is during the hot summer months, when holidaymakers swell the population by more than triple - up to 100,000 people.
This area offers an easy lifestyle and a comfortable climate (minimum temperatures of 5º and a summer maximum of 35º) with the light sea breezes. Many thousands of British families have bought holiday homes and a large number of them have settled down permanently to live the life of their dreams.
Benalmadena is split into three distinct areas:
(The old village)
Despite the influx of foreigners, the Pueblo has managed to maintain a certain degree of decorum in the midst of the massive amounts of building works and construction developments that now surround it, where not so long ago it was rough countryside
Arroyo de la Miel
The busy commercial town centre separating the village on the hill from the sea front. Arroyo has grown rapidly, due greatly to the excellent train service running between Fuengirola and Malaga, as well as good road connection.
The coastal area with many hotels, beaches and the award winning Marina, with excellent port facilities, fantastic nightlife and the fabulous Aquarium.
With the huge number of resident and visiting foreign Tourists to Benalmadena and the Costa del Sol in general, the variety of types of restaurants is enormous. There are many English, Scottish and Irish pubs, most of which have live big screen sporting events. You have the choice of all nationality restaurants, including, Chinese, Italian, Dutch, Lebanese, etc. There are also plenty opportunities to try out the local dishes and the best place to go is along the beach or to the Marina and visit a "Chiringuito" Beach Bar) where fresh fish dishes are served up with a wonderful chilled wine or a refreshing glass of sangria.
In Benalmadena there are plenty of things to see as well as enjoying entertaining family days out to places like the theme park, Tivoli World, the fabulous Jardin de Las Aguilas (Garden of Eagles), see the penguins and dolphins at Selwo Marina and Sea Life or take a ride in the Cable Car to see breathtaking views of the coast.
All along the promenade, which stretches from the Bil Bil Castle to the Marina, you will see an amazing variety of mosaics done by different artists. The styles and materials differ greatly, with some artists using a ceramic finish, while others have opted for metal, wood or natural stone. The overall impression of this outdoor 'exhibition' is the result of the Plan of Local Art Development, which has encouraged local artists to add beauty to the area by exhibiting their art in this way.
The promenade is one of the smartest of the Costa del Sol and plans are afoot to extend it further. It presently covers several kilometres and stretches across the Benalmadena area with the relaxing tranquillity of sand and sea on one side and the bustling commercial hubbub of activity on the other. There are many bars and restaurants all along the sea front, where you can enjoy a pleasant time looking out across the Mediterranean or watching the world go by.
