Over the last few decades, the Costa del Sol has become one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations. Its pleasant climate, numerous beaches and Golf courses have certainly influenced this. There are countless places to visit and things to do which make it one of the most successful tourist areas.
Its capital, Malaga, and the city of Marbella are both cosmopolitan cities with great nightlife as well as cultural significance and attract the most tourists. It is a vast area with many different faces from the touristy beach towns like Marbella to the more traditional white washed villages of Mijas.
Costa del Sol doesn’t just possess a good climate but it also has diversity. It is no wonder it is so popular with holiday makers, both young and old.
The property is situated between the charming old town of Estepona and the lovely Puerto de La Duquesa, both only a few minutes away by car. Cosmopolition Marbella (great for shopping) and the dazzling Puerto Banus (great for people watching) are only 15/20 minutes away.
There are several attractions close by to interest the whole family. Selwo Safari Park in Estepona with its animals roaming semi-wild is a great day out as is the Zoo in Fuengirola. There are also two Water Parks close by, one in Mijas Costa and the other in Torremolinos.
A great day out is a visit to Gibraltar, (but don't forget your passport) where you can take a tour of "The Rock" and have close contact with the Apes. For the more adventurous, you can also take a day trip to Morocco on the fast Ferry from Algeciras. Also in the area are several beautiful villages, towns and cites. These include Casares , Ronda, Mijas, Benhavis, Selville and Granada to name but a few.
If you prefer to stay close to the Country Club you can indulge yourself (at a very reasonable weekly membership fee - see www.albaytresort.com for up to date details) in the indoor heated Swimming Pool, Turkish bath, Sauna and various Treatment Showers with hot and cold jets and essential oils. Hydraulic beds for massage, Jacuzzi, Massage rooms and all the usual Beauty treatments etc. are also provided. Some of these services will cost extra, eg massages and beauty treatments.
Outside the Club House there is another large pool plus a separate smaller children's pool. A 3 hole practice golf facility with putting area and a covered driving range is available to all guests. Paddle tennis courts are also available, adjacent to the Club House.
If you prefer to swim in the sea, the beautiful beaches of Estepona, Duquesa, Sotogrande, Puerto Banus and Marbella are only a few minutes away by car. There is also a natural beach opposite the entrance to the Costa Galera development (Bermuda Beach, about 250 meters from the apartment) which is accessible on foot by crossing the N340 roadway
The Costa del Sol is also known as the Costa del Golf, with good reason. There are at least 40 courses along the coastline. Closest to the Apartment are Estepona and Duquesa, both within a 5 minute drive and reasonably priced. The famous Valderrama course is only 15 minutes away as is San Roque, Marbella, Atalaya, El Paraiso and Sontogrande. A Handicap Certificate is required by most Golf Clubs.
The lively resorts of Fuengirola and Torrelmolinos are within easy reach by car, bus or taxi. Malaga airport is only a 50 minute drive. Other airports include Gibraltar (30 minutes) and Jerez (75 minutes).
The beautiful whitewashed village of Caseras is a 15 minute drive and the ancient town of Ronda, with it's breathtaking views a futher 45 minutes.
Estepona is one of the most westerly towns of the Costa del Sol and one of the most important tourist towns. It is situated right on the coast, 81km from Malaga, between Marbella and Manilva. It has excellent facilities, from restaurants and bars to fantastic beaches. The area is laden with activities to keep visitors busy and the area around is bursting of fascinating sites and places to see.
There certainly is something for everyone here. Within Estepona you can find a traditional old style Andalusian Pueblo. But you’ll also find a thoroughly modern holiday destination. Here is a town that maintains its rustic charm whilst still providing a holiday haven. Estepona is definitely an exceptional and unique place.
