The Costa del Sol region
Families, golfers, couples & groups of friends alike will find all they could want for in this picturesque area of Spain. The mountains of the Sierra Blanca are the backdrop to this area of coast which offers National Parks & beaches to explore as well as sophisticated towns such as Marbella & Puerto Banus within 15 minutes. The Spanish charm is retained by way of customs, food, drink & the festivals, which are great fun to see & join in with.
With an average of over 300 days of sunshine a year & very mild winters, it has been known that you can enjoy temperatures in the 70s in December. This makes for a mainly outdoor way of life here so sun-bathing, golf, walking, enjoying al fresco dining or a coffee in Puerto Banus marina whilst people watching are possible all year round.
Children - great places to visit include, Selwo Marina which has a dolphinarium, Selwo Adventure park where you are driven in open sided trucks through animal enclosures, a crocodile park, Tivoli World which is a great fun theme park & a number of water parks. This is all of course in addition to some good old fun on the beach or in the swimming pool!
Eating & drinking - traditional tapas bars where you can eat the delicious small dishes of food washed down by cold beer or wine. There are a variety of restaurants & bars in lively Puerto Banus which suit all budgets & where you can also do some people watching. You will find a great atmosphere in Plaza de los Naranjos (Orange square) in the old town of Marbella; wander through the cobbled alleyways & choose a restaurant to sit back in & enjoy a great dinner.
Walking & hiking - there are numerous marked walks through the Andalucian hills & mountains. Great views can be found at Refugio De Juanar in the heart of the Sierra Blanca behind Marbella - you can either do a short walk to the viewing point or if you have your stout shoes with you, then it's possible to descend the mountain back down into Marbella. If you prefer to stay on the flat, then stroll with the locals along the promenade from San Pedro to Puerto Banus & on to Marbella.
Shopping & markets – the markets are great for bargain hunting or if you like designer shops head for Marbella or Puerto Banus.

San Pedro de Alcantara - this is a Spanish town only 2km away. You can do your day to day shopping here with the locals & the nearest supermarket, Mercadona, is on the way into the town.
