The Andalusian province of Malaga, situated on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in the south of Spain, is not only the capital of the homonymous province but also capital of the Costa del Sol. Both have become over the years popular tourist destinations due to the fantastic weather all year round, kilometres of well-maintained beaches and excellent cuisine, among many other things that you are invited to discover when you come to spend your holidays.
The combination of good weather and its tourist offer make of this city a more than recommendable destination all year round and with plenty of options for all tastes and budgets throughout its many tourist resorts like Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Marbella or the luxurious Puerto Banus.
On the Costa del Sol we can enjoy a wide variety of activities and sports; golf enthusiasts will find over 30 golf courses to practise their favourite sport...in fact, the Costa del Sol is also known as the Costa del Golf.
As well as the numerous tourist attractions, there are water parks for a fun day to enjoy with the whole family whilst cooling off in the pools or shooting down the slides. The parks and public gardens are also well worth a visit.
The province is not only about the beaches and hotels, up towards the interior we’ll discover well-known white villages where we can enjoy excellent and typical gastronomy and for those looking for more action in the evenings, the Costa del Sol offers a vibrant nightlife, specially in Torremolinos, Puerto Marina in Benalmadena and Puerto Banus in Marbella. The capital itself, Malaga city in recent years is becoming a very attractive place with an interesting offer of culture, monuments and a recently restored charming historical centre with a high density of museums. Due to its excellent communications via its international airport and the high speed train, the city is also a very attractive destination for a break.
City centre also has a great cultural offer, being an attractive destination for those that want to learn more about Malaga’s history, with great monuments and old architectural buildings that we can visit. The city has a wide variety of museums and its excellent public transport system make Malaga an ideal destination to visit for a weekend getaway.
For those who prefer to hire their own vehicle will find that the well-known ‘Autopista del Sol’ highway connects all the important tourist resorts with the airport, although the coastal roads, despite being slightly slower to travel, they’ll definitely provide the best and most beautiful sea views.
To all of this we must mention the friendly character of the people of Malaga, which is yet another reason why year after year this destination grows and receives an enormous amount of tourists that enjoy its excellent climate, fantastic beaches and the typical relaxed lifestyle of the Mediterranean coasts.
