Costa del Sol Occidental, Málaga, Spain

Costa Del Sol

Sunshine, sand and warm welcoming waters

The beautiful Costa del Sol remains a popular region to visit as it averages over 320 days of sunshine a year and has somewhere that will suit everybody – whether you’re looking for luxury, glitz and glamour or a family friendly resort, this region has got it all. There are plenty of beaches, shops, watersports and a good selection of golf courses making it a great destination to rest and relax or get busy with holiday activities!

Benalmadena is a fantastic choice for families, groups of friends and couples too as it has plenty of beaches, a vibrant nightlife scene, restaurants and bars aplenty and a choice of varied attractions including a theme park, marine park and the Picasso museum.

Marbella has great beaches and a charming Old Town that’s an absolute pleasure to explore. You can indulge in a spot of shopping at Porto Banus, gaze at the impressive yachts in the marina and treat yourself to a romantic meal in one of the top class restaurants which sit along the beachfront.

Fuengirola has a lovely traditional feel with a busy port, an old town and Moorish castle. The beaches have golden sand leading to clear waters and there’s an abundance of beachfront bars and clubs should you wish to indulge in a bit of nightlife.

Other areas worth considering are Nerja with its dark sand and shingle beaches and Estepona which is an Andalusian hotspot, tucked away between Marbella and Manilva.

Bus and taxi services are plentiful and another great way to get around is on a bike. For sightseeing further afield, car hire is recommended and navigating and driving is generally easy with the well maintained and signposted roads.
