The Costa del Sol region
A thousand kilometres of coastline with one common factor: the Sun. Let yourself be captivated by Andalusia's coast, where you will find a succession of unspoilt beaches, majestic cliffs, salt marshes teeming with wildlife and a little-known underwater world just waiting to be discovered. Andalusia's beaches are its natural heritage and have their own personality. The coastline, including the Costa del Sol is an idyllic natural setting, with warm waters and non-stop sunshine.
Andalusia has a rich ancient cultural heritage, which has increased in value in recent decades; both in recovering signs of identity reflected in its historic heritage as well the force provided by creative activity. Andalusian cuisine centres on fresh, local ingredients, with fish dishes available in coastal provinces and the finest meat dishes inland. A huge variety of fruit is to be found throughout. Perhaps the only difference is the personal touch that each town and village gives to its typical dishes.
Of the 771 Andalusian municipalities, 126 have been declared historic areas. The old towns of Granada, Cordoba, Ubeda and Baeza have been recognised as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, just like Seville overall.
Along with this historical legacy, Andalusia has a wide network of cultural institutions. These include the Museum of Fine Arts, the Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art and the Theatre of the Maestranza in Seville; the Andalusian Library and the Andalusian Legacy Foundation in Granada; the Andalusian Film House in Cordoba, the Andalusian Centre of Flamenco in Jerez de la Frontera; the Andalusian Centre for Underwater Archaeology in Cadiz; the Andalusian Centre of Photography in Almeria, and the Picasso Museum and the Andalusian Centre of Arts in Malaga.
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 wonderful place with beaches to suit all tastes.
In recent years, Andalusia has become an ideal place for practising all kinds of sports. The wonderful weather and the quality of its sports facilities make the Andalusian region the preferred place to hold activities and sporting events. Enjoying the sun and golfing in Andalusia twelve months a year is a reality. With close to 120 golf courses, you can enjoy your favourite sport in any of our community's eight provinces, and in world-class courses designed by legendary players and the world's most prestigious designers. Andalusia is Europe's leading golf tourist destination due to the quality of its courses located in privileged areas, with beautiful landscapes and near idyllic beaches. Beginners, amateurs and professionals alike can enjoy these courses; in the Costa del Sol, with more than half of Andalusia's golf courses.
For skiers and snowboarders, Sierra Nevada is a unique location in the municipal district of Monachil (Granada province), in the heart of the Penibetica range: it is home to Spain's and Europe's southernmost and highest ski resort, as well as the highest peaks on the Iberian Peninsula, Veleta (3,394 m) and Mulhacén (3,478 m), all just 100 km from the Costa Tropical and the Mediterranean Sea.
There are a host of water sports available in Andalusia, both on its ample coastline and in the many rivers and reservoirs to be found in the region. Andalusia has a very special relationship with the sea, offering enthusiasts a multitude of possibilities where they can relieve tension, enjoying sailing or windsurfing. There are many other water sports available on Andalusia's numerous beaches. There are a host of beautiful rugged, rocky seabeds to delight snorkelling and scuba diving enthusiasts.
For equestrian sports Andalusia is one of the leading global reference points for all things associated with the world of horses. Historically, the region has always been closely linked to equestrianism, and there is a great tradition in our land for equestrian sports. From facilities for show jumping, breaking in, harnessing and polo to horse racing at racetracks or outdoors, such as the Sanlucar Horse Races, Andalusia has many options to explore.
For the children numerous amusement and adventure parks, zoo and water-themed parks are all within an hours drive, often a lot less.
For a sheer gastronomic delight Benahavis, just 7kms away is unmissable with restaurants to suit every palette and budget.
And when the day turns to night, glittering Puerto Banus, with it many restaurants, bars, clubs and casino awaits you just a few moments away by car or taxi!
