Costa Del Sol - Malaga Travel Information

The coast of eternal sunshine possesses a luminous quality. It greets Christmas and Easter with short sleeves and celebrates summer and autumn under shaded parasols, attracting successive generations of sun lovers since Phoenician, Roman and Carthaginian times.

Malaga - Costa Del Sol
Costa del Sol

The Costa del Sol rises like a bronzed Aphrodite from the Straits of Gibraltar in the west, stretching to the beaches of Nerja in the east. Veiled sierras are lined with scenic routes snaking past luxurious coastal resorts, arboreal retreats and whitewashed villages perched precariously on hillsides.

The undiluted splendour of this southern sanctuary is described by its superb beaches, sun kissed resorts and vibrant nature. Nerja and Marbella are also only an hour or two away from some of Spain's greatest and most awe-inspiring treasures: the rocky fortress town of Ronda, gracious Granada, scented Seville and crafted Cordoba.
