Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol - the coast where winter never comes; and with a mountain vacation inland, where nature is displayed in its entire splendor. White villages with their attractive architecture, wrapped in romantic legend, bring points of light into secluded valleys where life goes by peacefully. And from the peaks of the mountains you can watch the horizon until it becomes lost in the immense blue of the sea.
 

The province of Málaga has over 160 kilometres of coastline. A total of   14 districts are located directly on the Mediterranean Sea. On clear days you   can  see the coastline of Africa and the rock of Gibraltar. You can find secluded   enclaves set in unspoilt nature, as well as more established tourist resorts. The beaches in both the eastern and the  western part of the province are so attractive they have made the Costa del Sol one of the top international destinations  also because of the famous jet set hotspot Marbella/Puerto Banús and his exclusive beach clubs and intensive  night-life.
 

A definite highlight is of course the big variety of freshly caught fish and seafood. Very typical for the area is the fried frish so called "pescaito frito" and the "sardinas al espeto", sardines roasted on wooden sticks. Not to forget the famous tapas, which are an exquisite, varied and choice example of popular gastronomy which allows you to share a variety of dishes for very reasonable prices.


With close to 120 golf courses, you can enjoy your favorite sport in world-class courses designed by legendary players and the world's most prestigious designers.
The jewel of Spain's Costa Del Sol, Valderrama Golf Club, hosting the Ryder Cup 2007 is the region's most prestigious golf club and dubbed the "Augusta National of Europe".
