The Costa del Sol region
Whatever your requirements for a family holiday, you can be sure to find it on the Costa del Sol. With it's wonderful Mediterranean climate boasting over 300 days of sunshine per year, it's THE ideal holiday destination for families, golfers, and sun lovers alike. You can even ski in the winter in the Sierra Nevada near Granada!
Miles of sandy beaches, water sports, golf courses aplenty, lively resorts like Benalmadena and Fuengirola, and the chic, cosmopolitan Marbella and Puerto Banus, provide something for everyone. What about a cable car ride to the top the Rock of Gibraltar to visit the Barbary Apes, a visit to the Picasso Museum in Malaga, or a stroll round the lovely medieval town of Ronda? Shop till you drop in the designer boutiques of Marbella (don’t forget your credit card!), or do some celebrity spotting at Puerto Banus.
In the evenings, there are an abundance of restaurants serving wonderfully fresh seafood, as well as paella and traditional Andalucian dishes. Night-life is plentiful in Benalmadena and Fuengirola , with many clubs and bars where you can dance till the sun comes up.
If golf is your thing, it doesn't get much better than this. The apartment is just 5 minutes walk from the 1st tee at the La Noria Resort, and less than 10 minutes drive from La Cala Resort, Spain's biggest golf resort with 3 18-hole courses and a David Leadbetter academy, 5 minutes drive from El Chaparral, and 15 minutes from Mijas Golf with 2 18 hole courses. There are around 50 courses all told, and all are within an hour's drive.
