One of the most popular holiday haunts for British tourists is the coast of Andalucia known as the Costa del Sol that runs from Nerja to Gibraltar . Resorts boisterous and elegant offer every amenity and facility imaginable, all within one hour of Malaga Airport . Miles of sandy beaches, rows of hotels, and over 320 days of sunshine every year. There is something on offer here for everyone. The coastal resorts of Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Marbella are amongst the most popular. Further down the coast are quieter areas that are still developing, such as that of Estepona, a quaint town with a wonderful seafront and a prosperous future in the holiday marketplace.
Since the 1950′s this area has been a popular destination, attracting more and more people each year. The airport, roads, rail and other facilities have grown in accordance with demand. The attraction to holiday and live here is still there. The lifestyle is ‘ideal’ and you can get out of it, what you put in. Golfers who wish to play on first class courses in dry, sunny weather will find all that they want on the Costa del Sol. There are in fact some of the best courses in the world. If sight-seeing is part of your agenda then this wonderful area has much to offer.
Within a short distance are major cities worth seeing and on the other extreme are tiny white-washed villages clinging to the mountain sides. Not far from the crowded beaches are true Spanish villages such as Casares , Ronda , Manilva and Sabinillas , all locked in time. Along the coast, tourists of all nationalities are made welcome and there are few places that do not understand English.
