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.
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.
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.
