COSTA DEL SOL
The Costa del Sol is the coastline of Malaga province, stretching 150 km and it is one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations. The area’s sunny climate is the main attraction. The coast comprises of a number of popular destinations.
Marbella with 300 days of sunshine is located on southwestern Spain’s Costa del Sol, part of the Andalusia region. West of Marbella town, the Golden Mile of prestigious nightclubs and coastal estates leads to Puerto Banús marina, filled with luxury yachts, and surrounded by upmarket boutiques and bars.
The Sierra Blanca Mountains are the backdrop to 27km of sandy Mediterranean beaches and several world class golf courses. One of the prettiest spots in the Old Town of Marbella is orange tree-filled Plaza de los Naranjos. Marbella’s gastronomic scene is second to none, with everything from vegetarian and vegan cafes, to beachfront chiringuitos, and Michelin-starred restaurants including Spanish cooking star Dani Garcia’s - a feast for foodies.
Estepona is one of the few coastal towns that has succeeded in maintaining its pueblo charm and character. The numerous street cafes and tapas bars still serve traditional Spanish delicacies. In the “old town” the steep, narrow streets are pedestrianised and decorated with different colour flower pots. It is delight for photographer. You will find bars and small shops in Estepona, where you’d least expect them, all very inviting, and very friendly.
Outside Palma, Mallorcas capital city, highlights include Valldemossa, Serra de Tramuntana and Sóller. In the north, Alcúdia has Roman remains, Cap Formentor offers breathtaking views, and there’s the attractive town and port of Pollensa. In the southwest, visit Santa Ponsa, Andratx town and port, and the luxury marina of Puerto Portals. East coast resorts include Cala d’Or and the tranquil former fishing village of Porto Colom. The Mediterranean climate makes Mallorca a great destination for different types of holiday throughout the year.
