There is no question that Spain´s Costa del Sol is a popular destination for northern sunseekers and tourists wanting to explore the unique charm and culture of the most southern points of Europe. That is, the stretch of coast on Spain’s southern coast between Estepona and Benalmádena.
The name, meaning the sun coast, is really justified with over 300 days of sun most years and picturesque mountain ranges overlooking the south facing beach. In practice, this means that there are thousands of southern orientated properties looking towards the stunning Mediterranean Sea, enjoying all day sun 80% of the year with fabulous views all the way to Africa, on a clear day.
As if that wasn´t enough, the relaxed Spanish way of life, especially the charming beach restaurants (chiringuitos) and the deliciously fresh seafoods, are a fantastic way to live. With the consistency of sunny blue skies and it´s position right in the centre of the Costa del Golf, which contains the highest concentration of golf courses in Europe, the Costa del Sol is a golfer´s paradise. Not to mention the plenitude of untouched mountain reserves to explore and the local ski fields of Sierra Nevada only a two hour drive away.
The Costa del Sol also has fantastic dining options including four Michelin-star restaurants and a diverse array of international cuisine. Add to that the charming white historical centres, each with their own specific architectural elements influenced historically by the Moors, and you have endless beauty and culture to enjoy here on the Costa del Sol.
