The Andalucia region
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.
The Guadalmina Commercial Centre has a good choice of amenities and services, including a large supermarket, deli, banks, numerous restaurants and cafés, an English language bookstore, an excellent children's indoor play park, which serves great food for both kids and adults, furniture stores, and many other retail outlets.
The beach at Guadalmina offers a pretty stretch of golden sands, with both beach restaurants and stylish beach bars. Puerto Banus beach is 5 minutes away, and from there down to Estepona, the beaches offer excellent facilities, clean sands and lots of activities.
The commercial centre and urbanisation of Guadalmina have a very good selection of restaurants, mainly international. The nearby resorts of San Pedro, Marbella and Estepona are all within 10 minutes drive and offer an even larger selection of dining options.
Guadalmina enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable; temperatures average 32 ºC during the summer.
This apartment is in a quiet area in the heart of the Costa del Sol, surrounded by a host of leisure facilities. Located on the Guadalmina golf courses means golf lovers are spoilt for choice. Marbella with its beautiful streets and squares is a 10 min drive. Puerto Banus with its abundance of restaurants, bars, shops, casino, night life and expensive yachts is a 5 min drive away. San Pedro with its quaint streets and squares is within easy walking distance. A host of amenities including restaurants, banks and a supermarket are at the end of the road. The beach is a 2 min drive, or 10 min walk away. The beach promenade offers many cafes bars and restaurants. A fantastic watersports facility is close by that the whole family will enjoy. The Selwo Animal Safari Park is not far and a must see for all ages. Gibraltar is only a 30 min drive down the coast where you can shop duty free, sight see or get a boat over to Morocco.
Other Activities: seasonal fiestas
The Costa del Sol can truly be described as the perfect haven for the golfer. There are numerous local golf courses to choose from and many internationally famous for the tournaments they have held, including the Ryder Cup. You can play golf here for more than 360 days a year, without getting wet. Due in no small part to the great climate where golfers of all levels can play throughout the year and choose between over 50 fabulous courses. The properties are situated in the heart of the 'Costa del Golf' and the entire area is a golfer's paradise with over 35 courses within easy reach. The concentration of quality courses, the unique sunny and warm climate, and the hospitality of the local people make the area absolutely ideal for lovers of this sport. When Valderama was chosen to host the 'Ryder Cup' in 1997, the Costa del Sol received world-wide recognition as being the best 'Winter Golf Resort in Europe'. The final honour was the selection of Valderama to host the 'World Championship' in November 1999.
Some local courses: El Paraiso, Estepona Golf, Marbella Club, Valderrama, Monte Mayor, Los Arqueros, La Duquesa, La Canada, Atalaya, Sotogrande, La Quinta

"spacious, relaxing, beautiful surroundings, great location!"
Laura was extremely helpful, provided all details of the area, fantastic instructions to get to the apartment, recommended some amazing restaurants and even introduced us to a local driver who was half the price of taxis!
The apartment was really big and spacious, not like the usual tiny box apartments you get in Spain! 3 big bedrooms, big bathrooms, huge lounge and amazing views onto golf course. everything we needed was in the apartment, and they provided us with all the latest films on dvd to watch when we stayed in one night.
fab location, 5 minutes to get anywhere! san pedro beautiful local town and obviously banus for the poser in us!

"Fantastic holiday, fantastic apartment!"
Stayed for 2 weeks in this beautiful apartment in Guadalmina.
The apartment was spacious, bright, well kitted out which made it feel like home and made staying in the apartment really easy.
We took our two young children - the whole apartment and complex was very child friendly.
It has amazing views of the golf course and the pool area was very quiet and very clean, on numerous occasions we saw gardeners tending to the grounds - so the whole complex is very well maintained.
The apartment is in walking distance of virtually anything and Laura the owner provided all necessary information on local restaurants, shops and other amenities to ensure we had a great holiday.
Laura was extremely helpful and friendly during the booking process and I would strongly recommend this apartment for a relaxing holiday in a fab location.
