Costa del Sol villa holidays

The Costa del Sol is renowned for having the longest coastline in Spain, providing what appears to be an infinite amount of sun drenched beaches. The region has stunning scenery, from impressive outlooks of the Mediterranean Sea to fabulous mountain views. The culture in the area varies from the buzzing glamorous, modern way of life in Marbella, to beautifully unspoilt traditional localities. These include museums, theatres and quaint old towns, which give a reminder of how traditional Spanish life used to be.

About Costa del Sol

On the beach in Costa del Sol

With many of the beaches awarded the blue flag status, the Costa del Sol sets a high standard. Golden sands and pure clear waters are the trademark of the coastline. With a variety of beaches to choose from, activities such as swimming, snorkelling and many types of water sports are on offer, as well as simply relaxing and topping up a tan. Local amenities include beach bars and restaurants, catering for families and couples alike.

Local cuisine in Costa del Sol

With many restaurants dotted along the coast line, there is no shortage of places to eat. Local delicacies include sumptuous seafood, freshly caught in the area, whilst most restaurants will offer traditional Spanish tapas as well. Away from the coast, the mountain villages pride themselves on their gastronomy talents, whereas the bigger resorts will cater with more international cuisine, providing something for everyone. No matter the resort, expect to find plentiful portions and prepare to eat at a leisurely pace in the true Spanish manner.

Fun packed days in Costa del Sol

Tourist attractions are plentiful in the Costa del Sol. Choose from aqua parks, boat and ferry trips, natural caves and spectacular marinas. For those interested in a more sporting holiday, there are ample golf courses to play. The Costa del Sol is locally nicknamed as the Costa del Golf, such is the array of courses. Along the coastline, water sports can be found, as can various day trip excursions. Travelling between the resorts is very simple, with one major road connecting them all.

Upbeat nights in Costa del Sol

Nightlife in the Costa del Sol can vary from being fast paced to a more relaxing amble depending on the resort. With internationally renowned discos and bars, the bigger resorts are very popular with tourists and locals alike. Here, you will be able to dance the night away. Aside from the busier resorts, the mountain villages offer quieter retreats. The bars and restaurants prefer to offer local delights with a more leisurely feel.

James recommends
  • Visit some beautiful, traditional Spanish cities such as; Granada, Seville, Cordoba or Ronda. Alternatively, experience a little Northern African charm by visiting Morocco by boat for the day.
  • Take a trip to Puerto Banus and revel in the glamorous designer shops and the fabulous marina. Indulge in a bit of people watching and see how many celebrities can be spotted.
  • Enjoy a round of golf at one of the many courses scattered through the ‘Costa del Golf’.
  • Make a splash at one of the many water parks in and around Mijas.
  • Spend the night watching a flamenco show. Experience the passion and flamboyance of a typical Spanish spectacle.
